Have I told you before that when I get dressed each day, I get dressed for myself? Sometimes I'm lazy, sometimes inertia makes me go with my overall mood. But sometimes to break out of how I feel about being overworked or how I feel about the dreary weather, I force myself to whip out the bright colors because they just make me happy. That's what I did this morning with this bright orange Zara top, candy colored striped skirt from Talbots and sky high Pour la Victoire platforms. This evening, after another long workday instead of going straight home and scrounging up whatever is in my fridge, I took myself out for some sushi. A woman a couple of seats down from me struck up a conversation about how she loved the bright orange, stripes and bright color in general. And even though I do this for myself, it really is nice to know that in some small way, it makes someone else happy too.
