my outfit: black & blue and grey all over!

Sounds like the punch line to some silly joke, huh? Let's indulge:

Me: What's black and blue and grey all over?
You: You?
Me: No, an elephant learning how to skateboard.
You: Or you?
Me: Well, yes, I suppose that too.

I have been hit hard by the winter blues/blahs... whatever you want to call it. I'm bored, the kids are bored and the skies are constantly grey. Probably dressing in all "blah" colors doesn't help much either, but this outfit was super comfy. The navy blue top is actually a tank dress from American Apparel. I just hiked it up a bit, added a cardi and a belt and voila!

I just got this dress and some others from GILT for a steal, I'm not really a dress person... but these will be great with jeans (like this) or with swimsuits for the summer.

.... aaaaand the dove necklace is back. I'm just lovin' it this week. It's my little ray of light I suppose.

How do you ward off the winter blahs/blues?

Really cute! Even if the colors match the weather, I'm sure it's energizing to be put together and feeling cute!

And I'd like to say that I am in awe of your belting skills. Mine never look as cute!
