Warm colors, cool day

First and foremost, this is a terrible photo. I look awful and the quality is bad. That being said, I have been a bad little bloggist (what I call myself when I want to feel fancy) and have not been taking many photos. So, it is out of desperation for content that I post this monstrosity.

I wore this to work a few weeks ago on a cold, rainy day. When the weather is blah I often find myself drawn to bright colors to counter balance it. Honestly, I think it works – my mood lightens a bit. Add the blank canvas that is a black pencil skirt and you’re good to go.

Black pencil skirt: L.L. Bean Signature
Black boots: L.L.Bean
Red cardigan: J.C. Penney (in 1999 – got this to go over my Homecoming dress in high school!)
Magenta lace top: vintage
Orange bow belt: BCBG (via consignment)
Watch: Michael Kors

What are your favorite rainy day colors?

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
