Autumn and Brighter Days


It doesn't happen often, but there are days where I feel like this. When this occurs, I usually pile on the layers, basically anything that is comfortable, but also full of colour to help brighten my day.
Let's face it, we all have blissful days, bloated days, busy days, and very eventful ones, amongst many other types.

I wore this outfit on one of those, "I'm feeling a bit bleak" type of days. I think the cause was a mere combination of being on-the-go, having too many high-priority deadlines, and imperative family matters to tend to all squeezed together. So, I decided to wear some bold colour. I also decided to somewhat bundle up ... To be honest, I actually had a scarf on that's not pictured, but only because later on in the day it got warmer.

The office is literally ice age temperatures generally, so it's not abnormal to bring cardigans and scarves along in your daily tote or satchel. This dress is a style repeat, one that I bought earlier this season, and love wearing. Since versatility is essential for my wardrobe and lifestyle, I was fortunate to snag this dress at a deal. And, yes, finally I can also wear this dress to express an autumnal vibe.

I decided to pair this outfit with these beige booties. They are surprisingly comfortable for the first five hours, but I had to change into another pair afterwards. I must've had the precognition about it, because I wore these boots on a day that I had my golden foldable flats in my workout bag.

The goods: Printed dress-H&M, Lace-up boots-c/o Sammydress, Leather belt-gifted, Striped Eco-leggings-Gudrun Sjoden, Denim Jacket-Calvin Klein, Studded clutch and Cloche hat (I added peacock feather)-Oasap c/o. *I am also wearing my pink button in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, mentioned here

Do you have a special way of dressing when you're not feeling your fashionable self?

  3. The boots are really cute and you look nice. You sure did a fine job layering every piece Madison. We all have those days but I know my go-to will be statement pieces. They instantly get me out of the funk.
