DD's Style File - Bright Sunshiny Day

I didn't pick out my clothes last night like I should have, so I hadn't a clue what to put on for work. After deciding against a more somber palette of black and gray (which I had already worn the day before), I started grabbing things at random. My mission consisted of:

a)  getting out of the house on time
b)  it must go with tights
c)  the opposite of black and gray

Trust me, it was a challenge. And it was gloomy out, but since I'm itching for spring - I used that as my motivation.

The results:

Navy striped tee - Old Navy
Yellow cardigan - Express
Chambray skirt - NY & Co.
Fuchsia belt, navy tights and silver braided bracelet - The Limited
Navy reptile pumps - DSW
Pearl necklace - thrifted
Midnight blue pearl studs - Honora

And to top it all off, I added my I-had-to-have-it-because-the-color-was-so-beautiful splurge of a handbag I purchased late last summer. Nothing says spring to me like my Marc By Marc Jacobs Classic Q Ukita satchel in blue reef:

Despite the random decision, the look left me feeling happy all day, plus it stopped raining and was relatively warm and sunny when I got out of work, so apparently Mother Nature and Old Man Winter approved too!
