I've Got Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

The more I play around with fashion, the more I realize I dress to the mood I aspire to be.

My mood from this evening was probably more accurately portrayed by the angry rain clouds in the background of these photos, taken at Paskorz Berry Farm last week. I know stressful situations are probably amplified by my moodiness. I blame my astrological sign.

Cary was sweet enough to take these for me. (He also let me steal these shots a few weeks ago.)

To cheer up my mood, I thought some crazy brights, like this yellow dress and sunflower shoes, could help me out. It helped, at least a little bit. I think all of the berries I ate while picking on this particular night helped, too. They're full of antioxidants, right?

In fact, some of the berries I picked from this night went into this blueberry zucchini bread I made.

And another fashion rule I'm learning: That stupid fashion rules are meant to be broken. OK, so primary colors aren't supposed to go together, but I think they work here. The textures of the yellow and denim are different enough. And it was cold. There.

And nothing goes better with a fun outfit post with funky accessories, amirite?

Have there been times when fashion has been therapeutic for you?

  5. Super cute shoes! I agree, I dress based on how I feel, or how I want to feel too.

    1. Thanks! Dressing for mood is a new concept for me, I think, but I think it has validity. Or at least, I'm consciously doing it now.

  7. Nice shoes.... Nothing that I would wear though. They do match the dress nicely.

    1. Ha. I rarely wear them, not only because they're a little extreme, even for me, I'm afraid to get them dirty. But it was nice to wear them out for a change. :)
