Well this week was incredibly grizzly, gray, and WET. One of those weeks where color alone just isn't enough, so I made sure to wear lots of prints as well! If I had worn my red floral pencil skirt today as I'd originally planned, I'd have managed a bit of print every single day, but clearly I wasn't in the mood to wear something pencily today And after noticing that I've been wearing blue and green almost exclusively, I wanted to get some of my other colors back into rotation. Unfortunately two of my most favorites, orange and red, are missing in my wardrobe right now.

  1. Monday, worn to work. Wanted to try a different layering with this fluttery cropped top, but I'm not sure I like how it looks with this length; I think a longer length so there's more length contrast would work better.
  2. Tuesday, worn to run errands then work. With all the rain this week I knew the only way to change silhouette would be skirts/dresses, so this day I opted for a dress (*waves to dress twins Shannon and Sona!*) with nude microfishnets. Black accents to mirror the weather, light outerwear to keep from being TOO gloomy. I really like how the obi belt looks with the dress!
  3. Wednesday, worn to work. Even though I keep reaching for phantom other colored button-up silk shirts, somehow this is still my only one. I've been wearing it untucked over skinnies quite a bit, so today I wore it tucked in. I know Angie and many of you like to see the full belt loop filled, but I rather like how colorful super skinny belts look in outfits like this
  4. Thursday, worn to work and out for dinner. It was especially grim and stormy this day, so I just couldn't bear to wear a single dark thing. I bought this high-low skirt in both the yellow and turquoise, and have been waiting for some warm weather to wear them but hey today I needed to make my own sun! Hubby really likes the skirt (!!), but felt the sweater with the summery skirt was too seasonally confused. The sweater is spring-weight, though. What do you gals think?
  5. Friday, worn to work and then whatever's in store for date night. No rain today! As I said above, I was originally planning to wear my red floral pencil skirt but at the last minute wasn't in the mood. I enjoyed wearing this sweater with my gray wide leg trousers last week, so I paired with my wide jeans this go around (which are the single most difficult item to photograph in my entire wardrobe). To keep the turquoise looking as springy as possible, I added healthy doses of white and red.
