Every once in a while, a gal wants to get glammed up like she has somewhere important to go which requires feathers and fringe.  That’s everyday for me!  My mind lives in a land of fairytales, and I’d love to sit in front of the computer drinking coffee and wearing a tiara.  Anyhow, I digress.  If we had ventured out for New Year’s Eve, this outfit was a top contender.  By the way, can you guess what’s under the jacket?  It’s my trusty grey sweatshirt.  Told you I’ve been living in them lately!

The Style Rx: Grey is the new black!  Layer up with different textures for a chic look.  And remember, opposites attract.  If you’re wearing big on top, go slim on bottom and vice versa.

Grey has always been one of my favorite colors.  It’s so serene in the home and fresh in the wardrobe.  There are grey pieces throughout my house (my previous bedroom was grey) and definitely in the closet.  It makes such a statement when wore head-to-toe.  I love it when GREY becomes a “trend” so I can stock up on pieces!

    1. Thanks Meg!

      And loving that DKNY oversized cardigan you scored on sale!!! Definitely a worthy piece!

  1. Seconding the comment above – that skirt is amazing on you! :) I like how you’ve mixed textures in this look :)

    I’m a big fan of grey – my favourite neutral! Grey tees have to be my absolute favourite wardrobe item! :)

    1. Thanks Mica! I was completely inspired by last season’s Ralph Lauren campaign (the all grey turtleneck + maxi skirt) but I wanted a more modern take instead of classic.

      LOL, your closet is full of grey tees and mine is full of grey sweatshirts/sweaters!

  2. Alas! Most of the grey in my wardrobe is in my hair. Going to have to work on that for the New Year. But I do have grey jewelry to wear with my black which tends to keep me from looking washed out.

    1. LOL!! You’re so funny! Thanks Mommo! Your grey is actually a beautiful silver!! And as we discussed, you should leave it because you are beautiful!
