If you've been here before, you know that I adore all things pink. It's such a bright and bold color that it can't help but elicit happy feelings. So when deciding what to wear for GG's Soulful Beauty Chat, where I was to do a soulful reading in front of a room full of strangers, I felt I needed a little extra boost of confidence.

Though bright in color, the shape of the dress is extremely simple, so I opted for bold, complementary accessories. This bejeweled statement necklace has quickly become my fave! And it worked perfectly, snuggling right into the frock's round neckline. Finally, I kept the shoes and bag neutral to offset the rest of the bright color. I think it turned out pretty well! The style ended up working perfectly for the event, as well as an evening of running errands, and dinner with my Young Man. I may have been a bit overdressed for the mall, but... whaddyagonnado? 

What do you wear when you need an extra boost of confidence, or want to lift your mood?
