The forecast is showing rain all week in New York so I thought it was the perfect time to brighten things up with this color block dress.  I actually wore this to Blogger’s Night Out during Fashion week, but I didn’t get any pictures of it until this weekend.  (Although my fellow Dallas girl, Christine, did send me this one.)

There are so many reasons that I am crushing on this dress, I don’t know where to begin.  The color, the color block trim, the pop of the purple belt, the flowy & feminine skirt, the transitional sleeve length, and last but not least, the open back.

What fun things do you wear to brighten your mood in the gloomy weather?
