Outfit Idea: Rainy Day Brights

Nothing puts a damper on date night like a gray, rainy day.  I had started the day with such high hopes and fun ideas about what I was going to wear that night... until the clouds moved in.  Then the when picked up, the temperature dipped a bit and the skies opened up.  Ugh!  

I do have better things to do than just think about what I am going to wear, but this focus on my clothes is a great procrastination technique.  Rather than working on less exciting tasks, I stared out the window trying to figure out what would be rain appropriate dinner attire.  Then I had an idea...

First I watched the rain...

Then I started looking at my flowers... I am slightly obsessed with the color combinations found in nature.

Then I dug through my closet...  I came across a very "vintage" dress from Anthropologie.  I actually wore this to my bridal shower... no joke!  I love the corset detail and the fuller skirt is very forgiving.  To complete my look, I grabbed my J. Crew Bubble Necklace.

I would have liked to have a little more fun with my bag and shoes...

I love the Neon Stripe Clare Vivier Clutch.

And these gold DVF Jeanette Cutout Sandals would be so much fun...

But, sometimes you just have to make do.
