Sunflower Dress in the Rain

French Connection dress, J.Crew jacket (similar here), Kate Spade Saturday bag, Cole Haan shoes

When it starts to rain outside, most people reach for dark jackets and rain boots. Dressing to match the weather is common and I used to do the same thing. However, I’ve recently found that wearing bright colors on a gloomy day helps lift my mood. I love this marigold jacket from J.Crew because it reminds me of Paddington Bear and the color stands out among the typical black rain jacket. I wore the jacket over a sunflower dress I bought from French Connection last year. If you thought yellow and white were enough colors for one outfit, the addition of my pink Kate Spade Saturday bag might be a little too much for your taste. Fortunately, I have a newfound interest in pairing multiple colors to create a fun and girly look. I finished my outfit with my new Cole Haan sneakers.
