Going Grellow

Going Grellow

Works Cited
gray tee: old navy
skirt: old navy
belt: j crew
sweater: target
heels: style & co

Okay, I majorly borrowed inspiration for today's outfit, from this gorgeous photo from Jigsaw that I found at You Are My Fave:


I love the combo of gray, black, and lemony yellow. And despite not having the model's rad metallic belt and heels (not to mention her fabulous legs and adorable bangs), I think I pulled off the general feel. And I'm doing one of E. from Academichic's favorite combos: yellow+gray=grellow.

Going Grellow

This skirt is a really inexpensive foldover jersey skirt from Old Navy that I hiked up and (surprise!!) belted at the waist. Is it just me, or do high-waisted skirts feel more grown-up?

Going Grellow

Thanks for all your well wishes yesterday! I am feeling mostly better, but poor Christopher is still in bed with a fever, his glassy eyes glued to ESPN :)

I love the way you styled the skirt! I have several of those, but I always feel kind of sloppy when I wear them. Next time, I'm trying this!

Larysse Tavares said...

Your version is prettier <3 I love your heels. I'm glad you're better and I hope C. gets better soon :)

Beijos and have a great day Tania!

Pretty! I like your version better too, I think it's the skirt and thin little belt.

Just Better Together

I love this outfit!! You look great! I'm wearing yellow and grey today too, but no black. I feel like I am missing an important staple in my closet by not having a black pencil skirt.

gray and yellow - love the combo!

MONKEYFACE said...

Very chic and modern color combo! And I'm with you on the high waists - I love both high-waisted skirts and pants and definitely feel more like a grownup big girl in both!

Sidewalk Chalk said...

You look awesome -- what a fun combo to try out!

Paige said...

I just found your blog through Wild and Precious and I must say that I love it, especially the fact that your use the phrase "Works Cited". Made my little English Major heart flutter :)

Lauren said...

We must think alike, because I am doing grey and yellow today too! Too funny :) Love your rendition! Again, it's the simple, comfy chic look I love! Great idea to hike up the simple jersey skirt and turn it into a high-waisted one!

Glad you're feeling better! Love the photo location too!

I love these colors together! Actually thinking about re-doing my apartment using grey and yellow for the wall paint.

Aubrey Anne said...

I love this! Awesome inspiration, thanks!

Clare said...

I LOVe your take on this look. The lemon yellow cardigan is just perfection (I know I've said that before!).

christa @ enSTYLEpedia said...

*golf clap*

LyddieGal said...

I think you've nailed the look and the color combo is one of my faves as well!

Fia said...

Yes, yes, yes, grey and yellow are an excellent color combination. Since yellow is my favorite color, I have quite a few yellow+ color combinations that I'm fond of. Mustard and navy is another favorite. :)

Malicious Mallory said...

I like it! The colors look great.
I agree that high waisted skirts just seem better overall :p

SO pretty!

An Engineer's Closet said...

Wow, T, I must say I am so impressed. The belt is a genius addition to the fold-over skirt. Way to go! I will probably copy this....just so you know ;)
Hope you are doing well! You look lovely as always!

Lexie, Little Boat said...

i do think high-waist skirts are maybe a teensy more professional? maybe i just feel more professional because i am unconsciously holding my belly in? lol!

Healthy and Homemade said...

I like your version better ^_^

Destined For Now said...

I've never thought of those colors together. I love it!

Eliise said...

Hey! I just found your blog and I'm really glad I did! I love your style and I'm always fascinated by blogs that feature clothing, it's such an inpiration. That's why I like blogs more than (for example) high fashion magazines, as you can see what and how to wear in real life, not only to fancy parties. And your blog is a great example! :)
Pity that my blogs are in Estonian, but if you're interested you can still check them out. :)

Yes, the colour combination is gorgeous and so fresh. The gray makes the yellow more 'lemony'. You did a great job taking the inspiration and creating your own outfit ...I think I'll also try!

I completely agree that high waisted skirts look more grown-up. Great things happen when you combine grey and yellow. You just can't go wrong with those colors together.
