Modest Mondays: Brightening up Winter Gray

Just joining the Modest Monday party? Here's the original post (from My Spare Oom). Each Monday, I post a modest, stylish outfit. 
Why? Because I believe you don't have to sacrifice fashion and style for purity. 
 Modesty does not equal frumpy. This is my way of showing that modesty can be fashionable 
and pretty. I'm a girl determined to live a life of 
and plenty of style.

Yesterday was a dull, cold and gray winter's day.  It was a quiet day as well.  Only my work in the morning, and at home in the afternoon - to watch and bewail the season finale of Downton Abbey.  Seriously, that was the most depressing last minute of a show that I have ever seen.

To brighten up the cold and dreary day, I decided to throw some red into my outfit.

Beret: I crocheted it myself!
Black Shirt: Forever XXI
Patterened Camisole: Either Wal-Mart or Target
Belt: Had it forever and don't know where it came from
Red skirt: One that I made from a Simplicity pattern a number of years ago
Bracelet: Charming Charlies
Evenstar Necklace: Why, I got it from my Elessar, of course!

Admittedly this was a self photograph that I took while preparing dinner last night.  You can see it there on the stove behind me... what else better to bring cheer to a chilly day than a warm pot of soup?
