Drab outfit for a drab day

It finally rained today, but only a very small amount which just made it more humid. Our part of the state is officially in a severe drought. I doubt the rain did much other than settle a bit of dust. Today I put on an outfit that looked like I felt. Drab. I just could not get up the energy to put together something more colorful.

I like all the pieces I have on today, but I do not usually wear them all together. The shoes are some fun camouflage Airwalk Hope shoes I got at Payless. Pretty comfortable and they are part of Payless' Good Shoe Project which donates a pair of shoes to a child in Central America for each pair of Hope Shoe purchased.
Jacket: TanJay Dillards
Top: Chico's

Do you ever dress according to your mood?


  1. I used to have that Talbots bracelet on the far left in a jade green. Sadly, the magnet that held it closed fell out. :-(

    Are you in Texas? I hear there's a tropical storm headed that way. Hoping you get some rain and a break in the weather soon!

  2. I don't think you look drab, just more muted, color wise, than other days. And no doggies! But I like your look and I'm intrigued by the Payless shoe thing. Must investigate.

  3. Oh, yes! I always dressing according to my mood, however, you now do not look sad to me ... only discrete, love your bracelets, your accessories always arouse envy in me ... lol.

  4. I often dress according to mood and I have on olive drab today as well, but I have been grading papers all day and don't look nearly as polished as you. I had been unaware of this Payless initiative and may have to learn more about it.

  5. If I have a good reason for the mood, I'll dress for it. (And this weather is a really good reason.) If I'm just being punky, then I will force myself to wear something yellow.
    Your necklace is great. I'll have to find a Stylemint. Is it a shop? I love the Talbot's bracelet, too.

  6. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I dress to belie my feelings. Like when I'm sad or sick, I actually dress better... "feel bad, but at least I look good" to perk me up a bit.

    ANd the necklace is teriffic

  7. Hello SWAW - please come on over and post a picture at Visible Monday, if you can - I always enjoy your pics.


  8. I think so! Sometimes, I just feel like no fuss and that's when I usually revert to my black and white trend. This outfit of yours really's casual, but still looks put together! ~Serene

  9. I love army green! It is my favorite shade of green so your jacket is awesome! Love your bracelets too! I ONLY dress according to my mood. I don't feel like I can pull off certain looks unless my mood and it agree. Thank you for all of your lovely comments! Kiah

  10. I most definitely dress according to my mood! If I'm not feeling like myself that day it just seems I lack creativity and can't put anything "special" together! Regardless of your drab mood or your drab weather, you look fantastic.

  11. I love your Chicos top, the color is a great match with your jewelry. Love your post! Thanks for sharing!
