Gray day

Sometimes when it's a dreary, gray, blah day outside, wearing bright colors is just the thing I need to cheer myself up. Although honestly, what usually cheers me up on those kinds of days is a gigantic bowl of popcorn and a full season of Arrested Development, but I couldn't have that on Sunday, so I settled for bright colors instead. How do you guys cope with gray skies? (Books? Chocolate? Magazines? Those are other coping mechanisms of mine!)

This skirt is the only thing I've ever purchased from Zara, last summer when I was in California. We don't have one in Oregon, and none of the clothes on their website have appealed to me yet (even though they always look fantastic when I see bloggers wearing them). I feel like I wear it all the time, but when I went back and checked I only found it styled for winter a handful of times on my blog (here, here, here, and here).

Neon yellow sweater: Gap
Jean jacket: Gap (like ten years old)
Hot pink skirt: Zara
Black tights: Fred Meyer
Black suede boots: Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses: Oscar de la Renta from TJ Maxx
Silver earrings: free from aunt
Spider necklace: Bauble Bar
Ring: In Pink

  5. It was my day to wear yellow ,too.You were more brave though and teamed it with pink. I buy lots from zara but only because there is little choice around here.

  6. Adore all the funky jewels! Thanks so much for sharing your style on Monday Mingle.
