Cheerful Fanta On A Gloomy Day

Helloooo grey season! You're here at last!

It's rainy season in the tropics, and the day could be so cloudy and gloomy especially for people who are used to blue sky and hot sun almost all year round. This morning when I woke up, all I wanted to do was crawling back under my thick, comfy, snuggly pink cover and fell back to sleep. But of course, I've got bills to pay, so I dragged my lazy bones to the shower, put some clothes and makeup on, then finally settled happily (OK, perhaps not too happily) at my tiny little corner in the office. Boo-hoo!

However, I refused to succumb to the dull overcast weather mood, hence the cheerful fanta colors came to play! Grey sky might make a good inspiration for my eyeshadow pallete, but not for my outfit. At least, not today when it's already cold and gloomy outside.

It's just so apt that I happened to wear this cheerful butterfly necklace that I wore at my happiness ala butterfly post a while back.

At first, I thought the fanta burts of colors would be too much for corporate look, so in the morning I came looking like this.
Black, fuschia/fanta pink, blue earrings, and happy dragonfly pendant! Ow, and Mom's vintage Philippe Chariol leather satchel in hunter green. Now that satchel is happening again, I cajoled her to give it to me, haha! Thanks, Mom!
This is how it looks without the blazer on. So eye-catching the color, don't you think?
But then I became so sleepy, also people around me (blame it on the weather!), I changed the blackie onto a minty! The contrast really woke me up... a bit.
Waddaya think, friends? Too bold? Or is it OK?
Corporate sleepy look:
Black blazer: tailored. Black pants: LOFT (USA). Fuschia/fanta pink top: Elle. Gold sandals: Yongki Komaladi. Earrings: old collection. Necklace: Naughty (Emporium Pluit), I lost the one I bought at Warna MKG, but I stumbled upon the same exact one a while back at another store. Hunter green satchel: Philippe Charriol Leather Collection.
Wake-up-call look:
Minty green cardigan: Marks & Spencer. (reduced price, I bought two, and they really are good investment! Thin but warm and not scratchy at all!)

I love the Fanta blouse, it is indeed eye-catching but it's such a lovely bright colour and still remain very sharp and professional. Adding the mint green cardi is just lovely, a real mood-uplifter ;)
