Heart print top- Debenhams (similar options here and here, with sleeves here and here)

Skirt- Asos Curve (available in petite sizes too)

Shoes – River Island

Clutch- Spring (out of stock) similar here

Everything I’m wearing has been in my closet for a while, but I only cut the tags off today. Do you do that as well? I seem to wear things in rotation. If I love something, I wear it to death until I move on to the next round of favorites or new purchases.

This skirt is definitely a new favorite, it still works as a basic because it goes with everything but the sheer checks layer adds a new twist. It’s on sale now and available in black and white, I’m so tempted to get it in white as well!

Light Layers Save The Day

Light layers

In Southern California, summer isn’t giving up without a fight. Days lately have been HOT. But fall is getting her licks in too, with cool nights and mornings, cool enough even for a light jacket and scarf. It’s frustrating when you want to dress for fall, but sweaters and boots are out of the question. I’ve found the best way is to incorporate some autumn color in lightweight pieces. The olive jacket and purples in this cotton scarf feel fall-ish enough for now.

Gracey Wears: Monochromatic Gray

I love color. Anyone who has ever seen my blog knows that I love color. And I love wearing multiple colors in a single outfit.

But, I also love a good monochromatic look because, while head-to-toe in a single color sounds boring, it doesn’t have to be.  And I think it can be a fun challenge to wear a monochromatic look that doesn’t make you nod off when looking in the mirror.

Take this outfit for example:

Fashion for Giants outfit featuring gray Old Navy moto jeans & a gray jeweled LOFT sweatshirt

Thanks to the shiny bits, there’s no nodding off here!

 

And that’s while wearing head-to-toe gray.  Gray, especially, can be a real snoozer of a color. But when you add in embellishments and metallic hues, it can also be interesting.  See?

Fashion for Giants outfit featuring gray moto jeans, gray jeweled LOFT sweatshirt & pewter Old Navy flats

Oooh, so interesting!

 

Really though, while I’m not saying this is the most exciting thing I’ve ever worn, I will say that the addition of texture and shine keeps this outfit from being drab and boring.

 

What about you, Reader Friends? Are you fans of monochromatic looks?  Any tips for making them work?

xoxo,

Gracey
