Funky Fall Florals

Sometimes the crazy mood swings that Mother Nature goes through during the fall (and winter months) puts a damper on our moods, which often times reflects through our clothing selections. Although some may be singing "the weather outside is frightful…" that doesn't mean that your spirit has to be down in the dumps. One easy trick to help lift your spirits out of a crazy funk is wearing fun, bright, bold, expressive clothing. Don't believe me? Just look at a bright yellow shirt or a hot pink blazer and tell me that doesn't instantly change your mood from drab to fab. That's what I wanted to do on Sunday. Although the high for today was only in the mid 50's I wanted to bring a little sunshine to this cool crisp fall day, so I pulled out my "funky floral" skirt that dons gorgeous hues of hot pink, navy blue, and chartreuse green. I then paired the skirt with a simple white tee, threw on a blazer atop, and added my cognac knee boots, with a matching belt and there you have it. My look was complete. I added gold accessories like my key necklace and thrifted sunnies with the gold detail to give the outfit a bit more dimension. 

Take a closer look at the full outfit details below.

So as you see certain colors can/will lift your mood when you need a simple pick - me - upper! I hope this post has provided a little ray of sunshine for your day. 
What colors help lift your mood? Do you wear that color often?

Let's make this a marvelous Monday! Do one thing that you have been putting off today :)
