Wardrobe | The Sunny Side of Life

2011_07_06c

The last time I remember feeling so sunny was on a rainy October day in 2009. This time, though, it was by no accident. It had been raining all day, so I decided to brighten things up with this cheerful outfit. And guess what? As I went about my day, the rain clouds gave way to sunny skies. I guess it really is true: If you build it, the sun will shine. Or something like that.
