Color Strikes Back

I have a lot of neutrals in my fall capsule wardrobe, which overall I'm pretty happy with. They're very mix- and match-able, and easy to brighten up with a bold accessory or two. But sometimes, I need an outfit that's dominated by color. Color can be such a mood-booster, don't you think? 

I actually got the idea for this look from another blogger, Jacquelyn of Just Jacq. We were commenting back and forth about our fall capsules, and she suggested I try this look but with my sleeveless striped blouse. Since it's been cool out, I switched it out for one with sleeves, but I love how it turned out! I get more inspiration from other bloggers than I do anywhere else, I swear. 

What are your favorite mood-boosting colors? 




Striped shirt: Ann Taylor Factory (similar) / turquoise pencil skirt: The Limited (similar) / necklace: jewelry shop in Paris (love this bold one!) / pink pumps: Nine West

  1. Turquoise is definitely one of my favorites, and i love it with your wine colored pumps! Neutrals are great, but we definitely need a bit of color every so often.

  3. Great look, babe! The stripes are so classic.
    My go-to mood booster color is definitely cobalt blue- can't get enough of it!

  6. That such perfect combination and I love the necklace and shoes with it. Love the fact that you picked up the necklace in Paris! My mood boosting colors are pinks and reds, so I love those shoes.
