Where: Peaceful day reading a book cozy in my bed watching the rain through my window.

Today's outfit started off by me wanting to wear these cute rainbow bracelets my parents gave me for Christmas. Since it has so much color, I decided it was best to make a black & white outfit that wouldn't compete for attention. Then I thought this top was perfect to show off some really nice earrings, so I went with these cute rainbow ones! And to finish off, I added more pops of color with the lime shoes and ribbon belt.

I also love how easy it was to change this outfit into a work appropriate look. All I had to do was two simple steps:

1. Add a casual jacket:

2. Change to more subtle yet fashionable accessories:

And voila! You have a work appropriate outfit in seconds!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this floral skirt:
