Overcast

I really love how certain celebrities (Jessica Alba comes to mind) are able to pull off an all gray ensemble.  Think faded gray jeans, a silvery tank top, and a billowy scarf.  The look is casual and understated, always chic.  I need to start incorporating easy ensembles like this into my wardrobe… this type of a look is perfect for those days when you need to look polished but don’t feel like trying too hard. I also may or may not have Fall shopping on the brain in a major way right now.  (How good are those ankle boots?  And the cords?  OK, all of it.)

Sweatshirt // Wallet // Dark Gray Tunic // Silk Tank // Shawl

Skinny Corduroy Pants // Tote (dream splurge) // Necklace // Shades // Tee

Shirt Dress // Labradorite Necklace // Ankle Boots (on my Fall wish list) // Gray Jeans //  Scarf // Heels (steal!)

    Love a grey ensemble! I may or may not have gone through a span during the spring when it’s all I wore… though as chic as Jessica Alba? Not so sure! Haha. Those are amazing ankle boots and that really is the perfect tee.

      Me too… it’s just so easy and chic. I dont think any of us can be quite as chic as J.A…. but we can certainly try!!

      Aren’t they great? (And such a good deal!!)

    I agree — one would think that an all-over muted gray look would look drab, but it’s anything but. I think the serene color palette also pairs especially well with a gorgeous, dewy cheek and peachy tones in the makeup. It makes the whole look seem fresh.

      Ooh! I really love the idea of pairing with peachy makeup… so perfect!

    I’ve been looking for gray jeans for a while but I can’t find any skinnies that are long enough.  They all hit right at the ankle or cropped!

    I just love gray.  Two years ago, I purchased quite a bit of items in this color.  This year has been more navy and black print for me.

      I’m such a fan, too. I’ve been on a navy kick but right now I’m all about gray for Fall. Just so easy to wear!
