All week I've been feeling a little off. Maybe it's the days getting shorter or the ragweed in the air or the busy season at work but something has me in a funk. My family says I wear my feelings on my sleeves, and this week that is entirely true. Subconsciously, I have reached for blue, black and green all week.
Fall is definitely starting to stir here in D.C., the mornings and evenings are growing crisper which equates to work days full of cardigans. I wanted to add an unexpected pop of color to this outfit, so I reached for this yellow belt I also bought in San Francisco. I was a bad, bad girl there!

This poor skirt was at the back of my closet all summer. Being high-waisted I deemed it too hot to wear this wet, hot American summer. Now that the dog days are over, I have moved it back into rotation. I grabbed this tank at Old Navy because I love its pretty, little straps. The lace detail matches the back of my cardigan...too bad I didn't snap a picture of that. womp, womp.

I adore this top, the color is so vibrant! I generally try to pair this top with slimmer pants/pencil skirts since it's a bit voluminous but I opted for volume today to play with proportion. I'm not sure I love it, but I am glad I tried it.

I have to ask, do you ever let your emotions dress you? I'm hoping my mood turns around soon, my blue and green options are limited! :D
