WHAT TO WEAR: Shopping

What to Wear

On dreary days, there is nothing better than hitting the mall with friends. In my opinion, a little retail therapy is the perfect cure for the blues. This Fashionista was heading to her car when I approached her. She told me that she was wearing cheery colors to make the day brighter despite the lack of sun. I loved her positive attitude towards dressing to make herself feel good and ready to greet the day.

This Fashionista wore a pair of light wash, slightly ripped jeans. She paired them with a floral top with lace trim. The combination of lace and a floral pattern makes any outfit feel just a little classier. Florals are a huge trend this spring, and adding them to your wardrobe now is a great way to get ready for warmer weather. Since the weather is still cold, she paired a dark green button-down with a brown belt. I liked how she used the belt to synch her waist since both of her tops were loose fitting. Anthropologie has a great selection of these types of tops to take your wardrobe from winter to spring.

Moreover, this Fashionista had a great pair of combat boots with a cross-body bag in the same color. I loved how her gray socks peeked out of her boots, it helped add a little flair to her outfit. Steve Madden has a great selection of boots and they are currently having an additional 50 percent off on all sale items, can life get any better? To finish off her outfit, she was wore a jeweled headband and pink dangling earrings. The earrings added another element of flair and matched perfectly with the pink in her shirt.

Next time a dreary day gets you blue, try putting on some lively colors for an instant mood boost.

One Simple Change: Need to dress up for a presentation in class? Instead of wearing a patterned top and solid bottom, switch it! Choose a bright patterned skirt with black tights and a black tank top underneath that green bottom-down. Add a cute pair of black booties and you’re ready to ace your presentation.
