Everything Grey and More

I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would fall in love with the grey colour. To me, the colour is associated with a lot with men’s wear especially formal wear or suits to be precise. Don’t get me wrong, I do know that there are lots of women’s clothing that come in the grey shade; all I am saying is that the colour is synonymous with men’s tailored wear. Besides my colours of choice are blues, browns and reds if I have to choose but grey, not really. After this though, I am sold on the colour. In fact, I hope to have blogged at least 5 grey looks by end of winter.

In today’s look, the different and grey permutations have made me so aware that there is not only light grey and dark grey. There is charcoal grey, off-white grey, bluish grey, gunmetal grey, silver grey the list can go on and on. The skirt alone has 3 different shades of grey and I thought the items I would pair with the skirt will be one of those 3. Guess what, I could not have been any more wrong. It was a shock to realise and to see that I could not even find the exact shades of grey in the few shops I went to.  To prove this, the greys on the bag, shoes, knit wear and the coat are so different. One thing for sure, items in the same family of colours will always complement each other. Anyway, I hope you like this look and it has inspired you to put your own twist on your next grey outfit J
Lastly, how are you all doing? I feel like I am being inconsistent with getting new content out but I promise to do better. Have a lovely weekend and a great start to the new week. Cheers for now, mwah!
