Grey My Way

TGIF Ladies

I know I am running a little late with my post, but sleep was certainly needed, and I think it was just my lack of and all of the activity that was catching up with me! I just kept thinking of that song, “Grey Skies are Gonna Clear Up” ..put on a happy face. We have had quite a bit of rain and grey skies, but I am referring to just loving the grey trend as it can be combined with many colors, or your classic black.

I decided to go for just the classic pairing of black and grey. Greys, burgundy, and jewel tones are all of my favorite shades for fall. Not to mention, the rusts or pumpkin shades that compliment my hair. For this look, I added these long, one of a kind, antique earrings my husband bought me last Christmas from Etsy. They have some great finds if you are looking for statement, vintage, and antique jewelry.

You all know I love my patterned tights, so I decided on grey lace and thought they would go with many things in my wardrobe, and add a textural element to the look. The boots, also lace and leather, add some of the femininity and really can highlight a look! You all know what a pair of shoes can do for an outfit!

It is quite chilly today, so it is one of those bundle up, get under the covers kind of a day. My pups just got their haircuts from the grooming van that comes to our house, and my girl is so funny! She scouts out my heating pad! She can be a little princess though. Last year, we bought her this little leopard circular one for about $10 for pups, that doesn’t get very hot. Now, she wants mine!

Anyhow, I am interested in seeing how you wear grey this fall?  Tell me some of your outfit ideas in incorporating grey into your fall wardrobe?

Have a great weekend!!

    Hi Jess. Grey is a colour I struggle with myself unless it’s a warm grey which I feel is very rare. I love your patterned tights, a simple and elegant look. You’re such an ear-ring queen! A wonderful look!
