Today's Everyday Fashion: Bold Move

This week I attended a VIP reception. Since the event was from 6-8pm on a Tuesday, I assumed the dress code would be more office than cocktails (it was) and I decided to go with a pencil skirt. I threw this outfit together in a few minutes before heading out the door - knowing full well it was a bold move with all the color, but owning every ounce of it. Most people, as it turns out, were in suits and I was definitely a bright color (although not the only one) in a sea of black. I just love bold colors, and even though I was in the minority that night this look is one of my favorites! Are you comfortable rocking color when everyone else is wearing black? Or do you prefer to blend in more?
