Why Wear Grey?



There was a day and a place where I used to hate the colour grey with a passion and for many years I never wore the colour at all. Perhaps because it reminded me of grey skies which are simply not my thing. Or perhaps because I considered it a non colour and failed to appreciate its potential.

Until I realised that it is one extremely versatile colour that combines well with all the bright and interesting colours around us including red, yellow, purples, browns, blacks, whites, oranges, creams, blues, pinks.... need I go on? Here is some inspiration for those grey days and for your shopping during the sales - if it's grey, pick it up, try it on and if it suits you, chances are you'll be using it time and again. What's so grey about that?

It's Jamie from I Look Good Today. I am a HUGE gray fan when it comes to clothing (mostly in the pants/skirts area). I have one pair of gray pants inparticular that I have to make myself not wear each and every week. They are definitely one of my go-to pieces. I'm so glad you found my blog and now I've found yours. I will definitely be checking in each day!

XOXO,

Jamie

Funnily enough, i like grey even here in sunny Andalucia. It has this smoothing quality like white and perhaps is not as boring as beige ! :-)
