Grey, The New Black?

Thursday, October 30, 2014

You may have noticed a new color trend this season and I for one am loving it!  What color you ask...grey!!  While it may not replace your go-to head to toe black outfit it's a great alternative and an elegant shade.  What I really love about this color is that it's technically a neutral and can go with pretty much anything.  Red, yes.  Yellow, why not.  Blue, you got it!  
While the leaves are changing and the temps start to drop I'm excited to finally break out some of my oversized coats and sweaters, in grey of course!  Styling this color is simple, let's take a grey sweater for example, the amount of outfits you can create are endless!!  For a casual chic look, add a pair of skinny jeans, your favorite pair of flats and you're ready for a Saturday stroll through the farmers market.  Don't be afraid of wearing all grey or different shades of grey (50? I had to throw in the reference!  Side note, anyone else excited for the movie to come out?)  While grey is a very minimal color, it exudes luxury, warmth and elegance.

Are you into the grey trend?  How would you wear it?

Good morning!!!  I can't believe its the last week of October, seriously where does the time go?!  One minute we're ringing in the new year, then celebrating 4th of July and them BAM carving pumpkins.  Seems like just the other day we were writing out our New Years Resolutions, because this is the year we're sticking to it!  It's OK, I didn't either, and I'm not sure how many things I actually checked off my list.  I guess it's time to start crossing a few things off before it's time to create a new one!  No pressure.  In the meantime, while we're reevaluating our lists and figuring out where to begin, let's start with a cute fall outfit, shall we!  
I'm a big believer in utilizing what you have in your closet and wearing it all year long.  You spend your hard earned money on clothes, you might as well get the most wear out of them!  Take your spring/summer floral shorts for example, wear those babies all year long!  All you have to do is add a few key pieces and you're all set for fall.  A long sleeve top and a vest are a great addition to the overall look, it's casual chic without being over the top.  Ankle booties, a statement necklace and a structured bag are the perfect accessories!   When it starts to get a little too nippy, add a pair of black tights and you're good to go!
