Grey Gardens

I think we as a culture don't embrace grey enough.  Sure, it's not as fun as say pink or yellow, but it's still underrated.  After all, as much as grey and overcast days aren't great...they are also some of the best natural lighting you can ask for for taking photos! Hell, so much of life is grey area!  Plus I love neuroscience so insert some kind of grey matter jokes here...har had har...I'm embracing grey!!  

When I first got this Trashy Diva skirt I immediately jumped to the yellow and purple undertones for matching purposes the first few times I wore and styled this outfit.  But upon packing for my east coast road trip back home a few weeks back, I had this serendipitously laying next to my grey Tatyana/Beach Bash top that I got from Zulily and a few months ago and realized what a great combination this would be.  AND I was already bringing back these Steve Madden wedges I got years ago from DSW so I considered it meant to be!  Somehow, I think these grey accents totally brighten the outfit up!  (Not that it needed it necessarily!)

Do you guys love wearing grey or is it a color that you tend to stray clear from?

  3. I love how you chose grey as your neutral to pair with the floral skirt. I used to be obsessed with grey. A third of my closet is grey. Love that color!

  9. Oh my god! I need that top! Love it! And I wear a lot of grey in the winter months (which for me is about 9 months out of the year). And I also am so happy when it's a grey, cloudy day and I'm taking outfit photos. Haha. It makes life so much easier. :)
