When the weather is gloomy, it’s hard to feel motivated throughout the week. That’s where the power of brights comes in! I find that throwing on a bright blouse, jacket, or accessory, can completely turn your day around. Hot pink and orange automatically make me think of Spring and Summer, and let’s face it, we all love those few months out of the year. Sunshine, patios, picnics, barbecues, and pool time — need I say more? Fortunately, Spring is just around the corner, but until then I’ll have to settle for bright layers!

I’m all about neutrals, but I can’t resist a colorful blouse that you can style multiple ways. I chose to pair this blouse with a navy skirt, rather than black, for something a little different. Adding multiple colored accessories brings out the various colors in the blouse without being over-the-top or detracting from the look. Sometimes you just need a little color to brighten up your day 😉
