A Spot of Sunshine

Wearing – Top: Express | Cardigan: H&M {old; similar} | Jeans: Old Navy
Shoes: Nine West {old; similar} | Necklace & Earrings: Shop Bella C
Bracelets: Olive + Piper {sold out} | Watch: Vince Camuto

Hold on, what's happening here? Is that the sun I see?! YES! I know, I'm as shocked as you, but we actually saw sun yesterday accompanied by warm-ish temps. Don't get too excited though because this is Indiana and it could be 55 and sunny one day and -22 and snowing the next. Ahh, the joys of the moody Midwest weather systems.

Monday began in total disaster. My hair wouldn't cooperate when I was curling it, my outfit was so not working and then to top things off my car wouldn't start. Monday morning at it's finest my friends. But by the end of the day, and $600 later, I have a fully functioning car again. Hooray...sort of?! The only shining note to this terrible Monday morning was this outfit. I've really been enjoying mixing bright spring colors into my looks each day and this day was no exception. I took off my throw together look and donned this polka dotted look. I'm not the biggest fan of yellow–Big Bird, Peeps, you catch my drift–but the bright, sunny hue of this yellow cardigan helped turn my day around, AND double bonus, I got in some extra time with my pup before heading to the office.

Fingers crossed over here for a better Tuesday!

  14. What a bummer that you had to spend money to get your car fixed, hopefully you this means it will last you a lot longer. I love the mix of polka dots & stripes in your outfit!
