Gracey Wears: Blue and Green

For a long time, blue and green was one of those color combinations I was a bit iffy on.  Why?  Because, when I was younger, I read a book in which a girl sat her blue-wearing rival on a green couch because she knew that the green paired with the blue would look “ghastly.”  I was fairly impressionable as a child, so, for years, I thought that blue and green didn’t pair well.  As it turns out, that’s totally not a thing:

Although, for that era, it might have totally *been* a thing.  Just as certain colors gain and lose popularity as time goes by, I’m sure certain color combinations do too.  Or, maybe it has to do with the shades of blue and green being paired.  I’m hard-pressed to imagine any color blue doesn’t go with, but, then again, I am admittedly biased towards blue. read more

Gracey Wears: Summer Faves

The weather has been absolutely beautiful here in Western PA this past week.  As a result, I haven’t much wanted to give up wearing my summer faves.

Nor have I had to.  I mean, I’m still running around in short-sleeve chambray tunics:

And I’m still pairing those chambray tunics with white denim leggings:

(I know, I know, I clutched my own pearls even as I was putting them on).

It’s not that I’m not looking forward to wearing my Fall clothes (okay, I’m mostly just looking forward to wearing tall boots).  But, for now, I’m thrilled the weather is allowing me to continue to wear my summer faves with only a scarf for added warmth. read more

Gracey Wears: Red Shoes

I have never been a red shoe type of gal.  I have always, for whatever reason, preferred blue shoes.  And then I met these:

I think it was probably the scalloped edges that did me in.  But, the totally walk-able heel isn’t hurting matters.  Or my feet.

Still, I wasn’t sure I’d really wear them.  After all, they *are* red and I’m a lifetime member of Team Blue Shoe.  But, can I just say that those little babies are easily as versatile as my beloved blue shoes.

I mean, you can wear them with shirtdresses: read more
