Crayola dressing

When gloomy weather's got me feeling low it's so easy to reach for a chunky cashmere sweater. Problem is, after a long winter it's easy to get into a bit of a rut. My idea is to defy the gloom and add a bit of color.  Below: my crayola-inspired remedy to the rainy-day blues.

To start, I took the Keeper of the Flame shirt, a universally flattering bright tangerine and added a contrasting navy skirt by Preen.  I like the way the kelly green waistband adds just a touch of color while still being wearable. It would be really easy to stick to a nude color shoe, but it's so much more fun to add these apple green Valentino flats... because, why not?  Normally, I love a wild bag as much as the next girl, but this Reed Krakoff tote is simple and easy.  A good way to keep the whole look from being too busy.  Top with a simple gold necklace and you're good to go.

The result: a look that's super bright, sort of clashing and will definitely chase away the blues. 

As you can see, I've just joined Polyvore.  Follow me to see more.
