Colored Grey

May 2, 2012

Cincinnati weather has been rough lately.  This past week was grey, grey, and more grey.  I know I need to be a bit patient as the weather comes around, but I am really trying to utilize the color in my closet to help me battle these glum days.  Lately, I have just been throwing color together with a bit of reckless abandon, but I am really liking the way it looks.

Styling Tip:  Try mixing colors but keeping the patterns simple.  For instance here, I used three colors, but kept it from getting too crazy by using two solids and one pattern (the stripe).

Shirt: Stylemint (last seen here) | Jeans: Urban Outfitters (last seen here) | Scarf: Street Vendor

Trench: Banana Republic Factory (similar) | Shoes:  Old Navy | Necklace: Mae Badiyan

    Grey indeed! You definitely brought some brightness with the outfit – love it!

      SO bright. You guys probably need sunglasses.

    I too have been wearing color during these gray days. It’s one of the ways to keep myself positive while I’m waiting for the sunshine. Love your outfit and the recommendation on how to combine multiple colors.

      I agree, Darlene. Helps keep my spirits high!

    Love it!


    I like clean combos… which are at the same time bold combos… You are very talented.

    Love the mix of color + stripes. Need more color denim in my life.

      Sure do, Carly!

    I love all the bright colors. What’s the name of the nailpolish you’re wearing? I’m always on the lookout for more red/orange colored polishes.

    Great outfit! Those jeans are delicious on you, and you worked all the colors in so well with the striped tee.

    LOVE those green pants. I’m thinking I need some!
