grey & sheen

Putting away the frivolous and welcoming in the functional – it’s a process that happens organically with the arrival of fall. Symptoms are especially apparent when it comes to my wardrobe’s palette: out with the canary yellow jumpsuits and tangerine tea dresses; in with the dove gray knits and weathered ankle boots.

In this outfit I attempt to make the most out of my transitional grey-colored pieces: silver slides with a metallic sheen, charcoal jeans with frayed hems, ruffles that are basically coming out of my armpits, and dangly earrings that resemble wrecking balls. I’m semi-determined not to sacrifice fun for functionality, but we’ll see how it goes. 😛




Until next time!

    This look is just so chic, I completely adore the earrings that you are wearing! And don’t get me started on those pants that are to die for!

      Thank you so much Ashon – it really means a lot! I use an application on Mac OS called Affinity Photo and create collages with it – you can play around with layering photos, colors, and fonts etc. Highly recommend trying it out! 🙂 Hope this helps?

      Hi D! They’re not the lightest earrings ever, but I have no problem wearing them for the whole day 🙂
