    Help me with DD's Back-To-School outfit?

    DD is insisting that she would like a PURPLE DRESS for back-to-school. Not a tunic top and leggings, not a top with skirt and leggings underneath it, but a PURPLE DRESS.

    I'm not finding much I like.

    She loves this simple dress from Land's End, and I think we'd get a lot of use out of it, too.


    But there are no coordinating leggings to layer under the dress... so if I went with that dress, what would I do--tights (what color)? Regular socks? What color shoes (although she may insist on wearing her purple Converse One Stars that we got... I'll have to see if they match once we get the dress)?

    And if anyone can find anything else in terms of a casual dress that's purple, in a size 6, and short-sleeve, I'd be interested! The only other one I saw was this, but I'm not sure how that style would look on her.

    What about black leggings?

    All purples go together, so purple converse would rock. Well, maybe that's not true about all purples (but I think so), but anyway purple converse totally go with everything.

    It looks to me like the Amethyst Floral Dot leggings coordinate perfectly with the Purple Sky dress.

    If in doubt, you can call them and ask. Their customer service is very helpful. Oh, and if you have a paper catalog or two, check in there! They may show "your" dress already matched up with leggings or tights in the pictures.

    Otherwise, this dress comes in Amethyst.

    I saw those leggings... I think I will try calling to ask. Because on my comp. screen I just couldn't tell. I love the ruffled dress, but DD nixed it--she doesn't like the collar on it. Thanks for that link!
