My current case of Galloping Brain Rot seems to be intensifying. I saw an elegant all-gray monochrome outfit SOMEWHERE, but I’ll be danged if I can remember where. A catalog I think. But don’t quote me on that.

Anyhoo, I took the idea into my own hands and felt it offered me a great chance to trot out this overdyed skirt. It’s gray-ish, but get close and it’s actually silver. The original color was a pearly ivory, so now it’s shiny gray. Shiny gray reads as silver. And, as it turns out, a silver skirt can be challenging. But it works with a big pile of other things in different shades of gray!

    It’s like the best parts of a misty, rainy day, in an outfit. I like it!

    I know grey can have lots of undertones – do those pumps have a green undertone? It might just be my monitor.

      Could be! They’ve always seemed like a warm gray to me.

    Beautiful. And it looks so springy too.

    One of the reasons I started my blog was because I was too fond of grey! I love the idea of a shiny grey…silver. And that cashmere scarf must feel so good!

    Good colours and shapes and angles….. and very enboobening on you :o)

  • Anna

    Lovely ensemble, good mix of monochromes, enough detail to spice things up—including the way the shoe strap frames your tattoo.

    Reminds me of an outfit I saw on the TLo blog the other day on Emily VanCamp – http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/2012/05/emily-vancamp-in-sydney.html

    All gray is so pretty!

    Your outfits lately have been totally up my alley. I always love your style, but the last two weeks or so, everything you’ve worn has garnered this reaction: “I want that on my body… NOW!”

    Oh, and the pink lip? Perfection.

    I agree with Erika A above, at least to my eyes, the Tsubos seem to have some green to them. I really love how they show off the tattoo on your foot!

  • Kellie

    Love this. Love, love, love!

    All I could think of when I saw this was “Fifty Shades of Gray.” Haha! I love this outfit. I never would have thought to do something like this but it looks really nice. I especially love the skirt.
