Rainy Day Blues

I don't know about you, but I hate rainy weather.  Especially the ones that are accompanied by wind and lots of gray clouds.  This is the type of weather that makes me want to stay home, curl up on my couch with some heavy covers, and watch TV all day.  But, since I had class, I had to put on my big girl panties and brave the storm.  I decided I wanted to look nice despite the weather, so I went for this blouse I purchased from old Navy off the clearance rack.  It was regularly price around $25, but I got it for around $13.  I had seen it previously and liked it, but I didn't want to pay full price for it.  When I visited the store on Monday, I saw it on clearance and snapped it up.  I also bought a black tunic length  3/4 puffy sleeve top with a tie neck and a aqua green colored turtle neck.  Both were on sale as well and I can't wait to add them to my wardrobe.

I decided to wear the tribal print blouse with a pair of dark colored jeans for a slight monochrome look.  I added a brown braided wide belt to help cinch the waist, my silver hoop earrings, and bronze colored flats.  Even though you can't see it in this picture, I'm also wearing an oval shaped silver ring from Charlotte Russe.  It actually looks like a miniature tribal mask that people hang on their walls as art.  It's amazing how I purchased this ring weeks before I purchased the blouse and they go together so well.  I tried to take a picture of the ring to show you guys, but it didn't work out too well.
