The Sunshine State hasn’t been living up to its name, as far as north and central inhabitants can see. With clouds ranging from ghostly pale to dark and dim, we've gone a good few days without seeing much of our bright blue sky. It may seem natural to succumb to the doldrums of the day with old but loveable sweats and sweatshirts, or even combat the mood with boisterously bright hues. Don’t get me wrong- both are wonderful choices- but there are always other options.
Today’s Fashionista went for a different look: pairing pale colors that match the stormy weather without being gloomy. This Fashionista chose to skip the blue jeans and go for slate-colored skinnies. BlueFly, a fantastic place to search for clothes online, helped me find a similar pair by Unknown Factory. A loose, sheer top balances the slick silhouette created by the bottoms. This lavender blouse is covered in flowers, but you can incorporate one of the big fall trends, polka dots, by wearing this ModCloth blouse. In my opinion, the best detail of the outfit is the way the cream-colored canvas sneakers bring out the petals in the top. A similar Keds pair can be purchased through Zappos, but if you’d like yours to match the white polka dots of the Modcloth shirt, white versions are available, as well.
No matter how bad the weather looks when you wake up, don’t let stormy days get you down. Follow nature’s lead and take a day to cool off with muted colors like shades of gray.
