We’ve found that the best way to beat the Monday morning blues is to eat something really delicious for breakfast — and to wear an outfit that makes you feel and look awesome. And we can help you with that second part.

Get inspired by Olivia Palermo‘s color-blocked look. The framework is typical office attire — a blazer, sweater and tailored pants — but the mixed hues (we love that she combined emerald-green and yellow!) make it stand out and feel funky. Not so funky, though, that it’ll get you called into HR.

If you feel the need to tone down the look just a tad to better fit in with the vibe of your workplace, simply swap out one of the pieces for something in a slightly more subdued shade (think: a navy blazer or black skinnies). Tell us: What do you think of Palermo’s outfit?
