Weekender

I know I'm doing a bunch of grays and blues here but I tried to vary the textures--corduroy, denim, a thick wooly sweater, and plaid wool flats. Lately, I have a new appreciation for pants. Maybe it's because I've been spending a lot of time at home and coffee shops studying, or maybe it's because I discovered high-lycra pants which are super comfy and make me feel put together. These cords, for instance, feel like pajamas but, as Christopher wisely remarked, "They just look really tight, which is awesome." Win-win.
I'm off to Chicago for a birthday weekend with Christopher, where it's supposed to rain constantly and we'll be forced to stay cozy and dry by spending time inside museums (and H&M, of course).

Happy belated birthday, girl!
To me, it's about time we resuscitate the beauty and versatility of grays, which look great on you, by the way ;)
Have a lovely weekend,

I really like this. I never pair grey with grey, I see now what a fool I've been! The cardigan looks great belted.

Blue and greys are two of my favorite colors. I love how the different textures break up the monochromatic look. Have a fun weekend!

casual ambiguity said...

I personally find grey pants (in my case denim) very hard to pull off. But by gosh I think you've done it and I think I will uh... copy (Shh) sometime!!!

Charlie said...

Keira said...

I love mixing textures, especially in the colder months (can your outfit get any cozier?). I also love the belt over the knit--I've never thought of that, but think I'll try it soon with my chunky knit blazer thing. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sydney said...

So is the secret to making a monochromatic color scheme look good by pairing it with different textures. I'm loving the inspiration I'm getting from your blog. itsallaboutalifestyle.blogspot.com

Love this outfit! When did you get that sweater? I was looking at the J. Crew site, they have a similar looking one that is cable, but yours looks like it might be a bit thicker. Hope you had a fantastic birthday weekend!
