Mood Elevators

There’s something to be said for the way the right piece of clothing or accessory can lift your mood.  A pop of color, a whimsical print, pretty bows, polka dots… they’re bright, happy, and always fun.  Pieces like these lift my mood and make getting dressed just a bit easier.  See below for a few of my personal favorite mood-elevating pieces.  I’m lucky enough to own a few of them (this and this included) and can attest to their magical powers.

Top Row:  Chevron Top // Tote // Lip Studs // Necklace // Bow Belt

Middle:  Blue and Combo Chevron Rings // Heart Sweater // Pink Skirt // Cat Ring // Earrings // Bow // Floral Tank

BottomDot Sweatshirt // Bow Studs // Pumps // Earrings // Skirt

    Completely agree with this logic and it’s part of my “wise shopping” strategy – I only buy pieces that really make me feel good.  Otherwise, I know I won’t reach for them on a regular basis :)

      I like your strategy and totally agree. Have spent too much money on clothes I don’t wear… it’s a tough lesson to learn!

    The satchel from JCrew  was a recent purchase and the color was exactly what drew me to it.

    I’m fully OBSESSED with everything. That Madewell sweatshirt is the best (and by clicking on it found the cutest b+w polka dot tee, score!)

    Where’s the leopard?!!?  (Just kidding.  Kind of.)  

    Real talk though:  When I saw the post title, I thought it was going to be a special post on cool elevators at departments stores.  Haha.  You know.  Like “Mood Elevators” in cool hues and themes.  Haha.

    That Chevron Top is amazing! J. Crew can do no wrong!

    Such happy pieces! I’m wearing my chevron rings today and they’re totally making me smile. Happy Friday Grace!! xo

    Color is always a mood lifter. These pieces you chose are wishlist worthy as well.

    It really is amazing what the right clothing/accessories can do for your mood. Even though I work from home and love taking advantage of the fact that I can work in my PJs, getting dressed and putting on makeup makes a huge difference when I’m feeling frustrated or just not as productive. Stripes, polka dots, and/or bright colors always do the trick for me! I think that polka dot sweatshirt would be just the thing for an off day.
