Lady in Gray

Happy Monday! (True Story: I just had to look up what day it was.) We’re in the midst of New York Fashion Week and all of the days are blending together at this point. As fun and exhilarating as this week is, it’s kind of starting to take a toll … Early mornings, jam-packed days, lots of parties and get-togethers, late nights, and barely any sleep. Exhausted is an understatement! If you were to sneak a peek at my dark circles, you would probably think that I’ve joined a boxing league. And if you were to take a look at my feet, you might think that I’m pregnant. #SwellingForDays Actually, I feel like my entire body is swollen at this point. Maybe because I’ve been living off of chips & guac for the last few days…

Anyway, enough about my physically fatigued state. Let’s talk my outfit for a second — I wore this monochromatic gray look to work last week before the NYFW madness began. Pink and gray has always been one of my favorite color combinations so I topped off all of the gray with my bubblegum pink coat from J.Crew. I kept my accessories simple… clear, silver, and crystal.

      Chile please!!!! There are very few rules to great fashion anymore. Try silver, metallic, glitter, sequins…….it all rocks for daytime wear nowadays. It may take a few attempts to get used to but you should let your hair down and give it a try. :)

    Just grabbed a similar pink J.Crew coat, and I absolutely love pairing my grey cashmere scarf with it. (Also, my room is grey and pink, so I agree it’s a perfect colour combo 😉

    Grey and pink really do look great together. It’s a great alternative to wear pink with grey, which is a neutral, but isn’t black or white.

    I have some outfit ideas and inspiration about wearing pink, and lot’s of possibilities on what to wear for Valentine’s Day that will interest you.
