I decided to begin with a pop of color out of the gray. This trench was a recent thrift store find and when I first put it on, I tried it with a white blouse underneath. But, I still felt dreary. That was when my eye fell upon this blouse, in my closet, from Foxcroft Collection. Together, the stripes and the circles seemed to be the right mix of visibility I was looking for. My Talbot's black pants from last year were perfect to pair with the shirt and jacket....the darker circles on the jacket are actually black and not navy.
But, the fun did not stop there. I asked Gigi if she wanted to take in some local color at LOCAL COFFEE…an aromatic neighborhood coffee shop one of my students has lobbied me to give it try. He would say, “Starbucks is so predictable…go to Local Coffee!” Since I was visiting a new location, I tried a new blend and it was amazing…I drank it black with no additions and was pleased to find it smooth and flavorful. Gigi could be seen through the drizzle in her fabulous gold ensemble with leopard pants. Together, we took a powerful stand against dreariness.
Finally, we headed off to spend our Saturday with family, and, of course, by the time I got home, the sun appeared and burned off the dreary.
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and make sure you visit the not-dreary-at-all ladies of VISIBLE MONDAY!! and THRIFTERS ANONYMOUS LINK UP and MONDAY MINGLE!!!!
