Style Post: Monday Greys with a Cozy Sweater

Monday, October 28, 2013

 OK. I admit. This is not one of my most original outfits. But when I woke up, the first thought that entered my head was actually an idea that inspired one of my very first blog entries almost 3 years ago: Brrrr it's cold outside. Although this time I was referring to outside my bed.

I decided to pull my warmest, over sized, mullet sweater out of the closet and create an outfit that would feel easy and cozy, but somehow still read c-h-i-c. Since I've always loved mixing neutrals, especially grey and beige, I decided to combine several shades of grey.

I often feature Monday Blues, but sometimes I wonder how the color "blue" has come to represent melancholy, when all of its shades are such happy and pleasing hues. Why not Monday Greys? Well, here you go...
