Give Me Color

Any sort of satisfaction I get over dressing up these days is overshadowed by the hatred I have toward my hair.  It's my fault for letting it go this long.  Less than a week before my hair appointment...yippee!  In the meantime, I am miserable.  This dry, lifeless mop on my head is completely unmanageable.  I wish it were appropriate to wear hats at work. 

So, about this outfit.  This scarf gets SO MUCH wear.  It's one of those items that I find myself wondering how I ever managed without it.  Do you have an item - or several- that you feel that way about?

I'm trying to incorporate plenty of color into what I'm wearing lately.  Not that that's ever been a problem for me.  But these are particularly gray days and any amount of cheeriness I can share is worthwhile.  I really like Katy's approach to spring-fever:  Dress like its spring and wear a coat.  I'm SO almost to that point. 

It doesn't help that Steve is insisting on a warm-weather vacation.  Showing me vacation packages and cruising deals that we can actually almost afford.  If he keeps this up, there's no way I'll be able to not give in eventually.  I'm dyin' for lack of sunshine here.

I love the color combo here. I've noticed that purple/yellow have become quite the combo within fashion and style blogs. It's fab!

I love this! It all works so perfectly -- the yellow with the vest and that cute scarf! Great spring look for the winter :)
