walkin' in a rainy wonderland

 Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow (and please stop the rain!!). For the past week, it has been gray, gloomy, and raining. Every. Single. Day. At least today we've moved on to the cloudy, white-gray sky. A glimpse of blue sky is all I need to make my spirits merry and bright.

Another tried-and-true way to boost my spirits on dreary days is to wear a perfectly coutured outfit that makes me feel polished and feminine. The black and white striped top brings a certain mix of casual, due to its cotton material, and elegance because of the wide and flattering neckline. Paired with the blush pink ruffled skirt, the look is perfect for any aspiring ballerina (or any girly-girl for that matter!).

Adding the black tights kept me legs from turing into icicles! My well-loved metallic flats provided new texture to the outfit, while my tortoise-shell monogrammed necklace and tortoise watch added dimension. Lastly, to ward off the light showers, I chose my brown, white, and pink Henri Bendel umbrella.  This outfit is the epitome of elegance and grace, and it will certainly boost your spirits any day!
