Butter(fly) Yellow

You should have seen the pile of clothes on the floor of my closet Friday. I had an outfit planned, but it wasn't that great, and in the morning, I noticed it tended to slide down and show too much bra, so 12 minutes before I was supposed to be at work, I decided to change.

Outfit after outfit hit the floor—mostly because (even though at this point, I should have just settled for anything that wasn't too revealing!) I couldn't stand to wear something so plain or dreary on a Friday. Especially on a slightly chilly and rainy Friday.

There was an outfit — this one — that I'd been wanting to wear a few days before, but had had to nix at the last minute because the dress' straps were too long. Thursday night, I sewed the straps to be shorter, so the outfit was wearable...but I had been reluctant to wear it because I felt it was too summery and cheery for a slightly chilly and rainy Friday. Go figure. No wonder I can never decide on what to wear.

But after rejecting so many of my other more subdued and warmer outfits, I was willing to give this one another chance. At least it would help lift my mood! To keep it warmer and more work-appropriate, I covered up the spaghetti straps with a white crocheted shrug.

I still feel like it's a great accomplishment when I accessorize with colors that aren't also found in my clothes, so wearing yellow shoes with this green and white dress is clearly cause for celebration. Bright yellow and kelly green are a natural pairing (in fact, the last time I wore these shoes, it was also with green), so it wasn't that daring, but still. I'm gonna give myself props because no one's going to stop me! Much like last time, I wore a (different) butterfly jewelry set to match the shoes.
