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?

  2. I love grey because it's not as harsh as black but really looks great with everything!! Love this look!!! jodie

  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!

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Win $100 Towards a JORD Watch!

What time is it?  THE TIME IS NOW.  Okay, now that I've gotten my favorite line from a Kids in the Hall sketch that I saw when I was 12 out of my system let's get to business!  The time is actually time to register for a watch giveaway and/or get a coupon, all thanks to JORD Watches. (Pronounced "Youd" as in like toad or road.  OR "Yoda" with no "a.")

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …
