Hello! I hope that Hurricane Sandy didn't hit you/ where you live very hard. I've seen devastating photos from cities directly along the coastline and my sympathy goes out to all of you impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
Hurricane Sandy was predicted to cause a fair amount of damage in Richmond which caused everyone to stock up on supplies like crazy and prepare for power outages. However, Hurricane Sandy delivered practically no damage where I live. My power stayed on throughout the storm and no trees fell down in my neighborhood. Richmond only got a steady downpour of rain for a day or two and small gusts of wind. A few branches and a plenitude of leaves fell down but that was about it (at least in the area of Richmond in which I live). We were very lucky that Hurricane Sandy didn't do more damage.
Today I wore an outfit appropriate for the dismal weather. I styled it around this lovely green rain jacket to add a bit of cheeriness to my look. Psychologists say that wearing a bright color on a dreary day like today can brighten your mood and I guess I would agree with them. What do you guys think? Does wearing a bright color on a gloomy day enhance your mood? I layered a sweet, black dress with white hearts printed on it underneath my rain jacket. To finish the look, I added combat boots (they are the closest thing to rain boots that I own), a silver necklace and over sized sunglasses.
