Mood booster

With the weather being on the chilly side and the grey skies threatening rain, I was pretty much reaching for the same pair of jeans and flats day after day. I wasn't in the best of moods when I woke up the morning I wore this outfit, and blaming the lack of sunshine, the 'comfortable' clothes went on.

Running late (as usual) I gave myself one last glance in the mirror and felt so unhappy in those jeans, I had to change. Never mind the chill or the rain, as soon as I put on the skirt and the heels my mood elevated. It was the boost I needed, physically as well as mentally.

  3. That leather pencil skirt is stunning on you! I always have to wear pants/jeans in the rain...I hate the feeling of my legs getting wet!

  4. I'm totally with you there's something about a skirt and heels that makes you feel so much better! Love the look, what a great score on that skirt.

  5. This floral bomber is gorgeous!

  6. Love this red bag on you, it's such a sharp color and looks great!

  7. funny how changing a piece in your outfit totally changes your mood, haha. But it's so true and happens to me (although wearing the jeans is usually what makes me feel better)

  8. you look lovely, I love this jacket but too bad it is way to thick for South Florida.

  9. Those shoes elevate the outfit to a whole new level.

  10. Love the jacket :X kisses

  11. I have a similar leather skirt and wouldn't have thought to dress it down like this. I love the result! You look fabulous!

  12. This is why and where I think that fashion really MATTERS in life. A pair of shoes, a skirt, a dress, sometimes even those jeans can really make all the difference in a day, a mood or an interaction.

  13. This post reminds me why I love clothes in the first place - they really can change your entire mood!

    That jacket is so great - and it really does look great with the skirt!

  14. It's funny, I'm completely the opposite when it comes to getting dressed. When I'm happy and the sun is out, I'm glad just to throw on jeans, a t-shirt and go. Whereas on days when it's horrible out - and today is one of them - I start layering jewelry and pulling out my fullest skirts. Dressing up is how I cheer myself up when the weather doesn't cooperate. And it clearly worked for you here, because this outfit is pure fabulousness. I can't picture myself in a floral bomber and yet I love this one more every time you wear it!

  15. Nice combo, pretty skirt and shoes i am so fan, love it.
    Thanks for your comment.
    Come check my new post dear
    See you soon

  16. Love your jacket, Lyddie!
    Looking forward to skirts and dresses as well but we had some snow, melted now but still chilly...

  18. It's always nice when an outfit change can lift your spirits! Love this jacket.

  19. I love this pairing so much. I haven't had a chance to wear yet my leather skirt, just because it's a bit too chilly for bare legs&leather. Looking at your black skirt it makes me wish that I would pick up one in black as well. Looks so chic and relaxed with that gorgeous blue flower bomber. Hope soon lovely, sunny days will come to you.

  20. I am a firm believer that when you look good you feel good. If you're comfortable in heels and a skirt, girl kudos to you and rock it daily!

    xo, Nina

  21. Sometimes that's just what you need. I think it was a good choice, that skirt adds just the right amount of glam.

  22. This weather needs to make up its mind, one day is raining, the next snowing and cold. Your floral bomber jacket is gorgeous, the color is perfect and it looks astonishing with the red bag and leather skirt.

  23. Isn't is amazing the way a cute outfit can totally change your mood? When I feel like I look cute, I am always in a better mood. And I can see why you were in a good mood with this look! Love the leather skirt. And that jacket is too cute!


  24. I'm loving the cute vintage Coach!

    And aren't nice clothes such a great mood lifter? ;o)

  25. I too often dress by mood so I'm glad to know other people do that too. I love your floral bomber jacket with your leather skirt, it's definitely a mood enhancing look.

  26. Gorgeous jacket, it is perfect paired with leather!

  27. I almost bought that jacket! It looks great on you!

  28. Isn't it crazy how much clothes and fashion can affect our mood? I love this look on you, the florals with the leather is a great combo!

  29. Great decision to step out in this that floral bomber jacket!!!


  30. You look so pretty, just like an hollywood actress! :D I love the outfit, specially the glasses <3 Love from Brazil xx :)

  31. Sometimes pieces don't work and you have to change. It's happened to me many times.

  32. This happens way too often - i go back and change and then go back to the previous garment.
    Enter the elevator ready to go for work and when I get to the car i go back and change- or just feel miserable all day.
