Coloring the rainy-day blues

I haven’t made it to the beach during my holiday vacation (which, coming from a native Floridian, is a downright tragedy) and with a rainy Thursday and seriously cold Friday, beach possibilities aren’t looking bright before my school-bound departure.

What is looking bright however, is my wardrobe, and it’s a conscious attempt to combat the dreary rainfall.


I wrapped myself up in my super soft Lilly Pulitzer cardigan and braved Thursday’s thunderstorm for a walk with my dachshund, Dude.

Not completely ready to give up the sun, I kept my sundress and sandals on. Wishful thinking? Perhaps, but you can always carry the sunshine with you.


I just picked up this skinny navy Lilly P. belt at Gainesville’s Pink Narcissus, and it’s the perfect waist-cinching accessory for adding form to the oversize cardigan.

The gold pendant at the belt’s clasp adds a polished finish to the look, bringing out the gold in the cardigan’s buttons. A little metallic gleam was the perfect way to break up the gray day.


A bright red umbrella contrasted the blue of the sweater, while so alpicking up the red pattern in my dress.
