Grey and Pink Romance

IMG_6118

Hello Ladies,

There are various colors matches I like with grey, and a blush pink just happens to be one of them. I find it can be a very romantic combination.

THe lights are dim, as you come in from a long day of work. Being an executive assistant in the real world is not what it is cracked up to be, You have papers on your desk a mile high, and the men in the office seem to just see you as just another pretty face. ” Hey doll, hows about some coffee over heres, ” they say, in a tone that was meant to get looks, and laughs.

You turn around thinking of the many things you can say to those “chumps’ but realize it would not make the best impression on your boss,…. ah, your boss, Chandler. 6 foot nothin but a whole lotta something, is what I think of him.: she said to herself. She promised not to get involved, in Mr, Tall Dark and Handsome, but that British accent has just swept her away. So, she goes and gives them their  coffee, and bats a few eyelashes and she crosses her legs and sits gracefully in her chair. She could imagine how the night would go…the men leave 5 oclock on the dot, she appears to walk out the door, when she notices in HIS office, he has two candles, a bottle of 1923 Bordeux and some frozen dinners? Ok, this isn’t perfect. Now, this story takes a turn…

and then, you roll over, realizing that the silly romance novel engaged you yet put you asleep. Got you again. How many times do we hear something is romantic and we picture it in our head one way, only to realize it was a fantasy, Well, when you decide to create a romantic look, there are some constants: soft shades, like this pale pink, or another pale pastel, complimentary colors, patterns, like these lace grey tights,and that come hither stare. ( one that i have not mastered in my 4 pose repetoire). I love florals, and they just remind me of a romantic bouquet, the colors stemming from a bountiful garden , and you…?

What are some textures and colors you think of when you think of a romantic look?

There are so many songs that make us think of romance, so many movies. Here is a song that I love to hear, as romance as its topic ” Isn’t It Romantic” Sung by Ella Fitzgerald, one of my favorites

and Billie Holiday singing ” A FIne Romance” Listen

    Love this look. I wore my own (taupe) version of this dress last week and paired it with gray. Romantically soft. dressy yet simple and casual enough for everyday.

    Two of my very favorite colors Jess! I think blush pink is such a pretty color and you don’t see it that often. Your look is so great and the over-the-knee boots are beautiful on you! You have the long legs to really make them look amazing. Thank you so much for linking up with Shoe and Tell on Style Nudge!!

    I love what you wrote! And I am also in LOVE with that sweater. I’m always drawn to different pieces, with bold accents to them and this sweater has everything I would be looking for. Those gloves are amazing too. Just wish it was cold enough in Southern CA to wear them! 🙂 Say hi to your fur babies for me too! 🙂

    Romantic indeed. I love the combination of a soft blush with grey, it seems to speak volumes of romance, as you’ve shown us with this perfect ensemble. And, I must add, you look quite stunning in those over-the-knee boots.

    I love pink and grey together and this is a great look on you Jess! I love that top with the appliques, you’ve styled it perfectly with just simple grey underneath so the focal point is the beautiful top. You look fab!

    Very romantic and pretty outfit but you were mad at the photographer, right? 🙂 That happens to me. Therefore, I just turn my head looking somewhere in the distance (looking “important”) and definitely close my mouth :-))) not to bite him.

    Have a lovely day! I like your outfits a lot.

    Gorgeous, Jess, I love the combination of this soft rosé and grey. Romantic but not girly! The short skirt and boots add the trendy look and I love that style mix!
