WIW in the rain

Well it rained cats, dogs and the kitchen sink here today. This is what I wore to brave the elements. I have styled the purple dress differently today. I liked the idea of playing with a low contrast color palette.  The first pictures are what I wore to and from work -- the last pictures are what I wore at work.
It's sort of mod ...

    I remember those Chicago rain storms! I couldn't believe that so much rain could fall at once.  

    You look gorgeous, of course!  I especially love your work outfit.  You have the most amazing grasp of color, Day Vies. I am in awe of how well you put together colors making them lush and interesting and still classic.  Awe, I tell you.

    I know your pain on the rain.  Is it ever going to stop?!?

    Still, you are a bright and beautiful spot of color. I love the mod vibe!  The hat is so cool!

    Great color for you!
  • Joy replied 9 years ago

    On a rainy day you are a beautiful rainbow of color! I love the mod look too. I always look forward to your WIWs.

  • Nicole D replied 9 years ago
    That is a fabulous outfit!  How do you do it - you are so spot on with colour mixing.  The dress is so pretty - you look like a spring flower.

    Inspirational colours, Day Vies! I love the blue and purple with the red belt! And your white frames. Wow!

    Is there any colour you don't look good in? Beautiful!

  • Sara L. replied 9 years ago
    I love your ability to layer under your dresses!  I never seem to have quite the right pieces.  I really like the colors of your dress and shirt together.  The hat and boots are fun and make your outside outfit just as good as the inside outfit.

    * plonk * You never fail to delight me.

    Both are beautiful. I am loving both color combos, and the hat is divine! First outfit I title "sassy courier" and second one is named "naughty librarian". I mean this with the greatest respect and love of your fashion sense.

    The cap is fab. I love the red belt with the blue and purple. I love the layering too!

    A great little change up from commute to office. Gorgeous, DV! Loving you in that cap and boots with the frock. Playfully polished! 

    (We all know ALL ABOUT THE RAIN here in Seattle). 
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    K can -- thank you so much. I love what you said about my color choice. I really enjoy playing with color I am trying to be as bold and daring with mixing print. I am in recovery for my fear of print.

    Thistle & Angie -- I am sick of the rain! It's not the actual cloudiness that bothers me most. it's the huge puddle lakes, thunder and lightning.

    Nicole D -- funny you should say flower I was inspired by violets when I put this together this morning. "April showers ..."

    JulieJohn -- you are SO funny! DH likes to refer to me as naughty librarian too when I wear my prescription glasses (regardless of what the frames look like).
  • Jaime replied 9 years ago
    Love the commuter layer and the office look too. And the glasses. And the colors! You look fab!
  • Suz replied 9 years ago
    This is so fun and so fab. Love your cap, love your specs, and do not love your rain, which is headed my way. At the moment, there is a very Chicago-like wind howling out my window. 
  • Day Vies replied 9 years ago
    Sorry Suz, but I didn't send it. Stay dry!
  • Beth Ann replied 9 years ago
    Vibrant in the most pleasing way, with a good dose of polish and perfect fit!
    What a way to combat the rain.
  • Kiwichik replied 9 years ago
    Love the to and from look - especially the hat. Love the office look - what great colours together and the belt is perfect.
  • nancylee replied 9 years ago
    Whoa, lady!  So fabulous.  That color is amazing on you...and your accessories (that hat!) are amazing.
  • Lantana replied 9 years ago

    It sure is a bit mod. And fab. Those white glasses are so stylish and my goodness you look so stunning in every single thing you post.

    I love both variations of your look. Fabulous rich colours too. Stellar!
