Grey heart

All tone-on-tone grey today! I wore this super-simple outfit this past weekend when my husband and I walked to a local place for brunch. (FYI, we ate at Tasty n Sons, a popular restaurant here in Portland. We were lucky to arrive just before it opened — otherwise, there’s usually a huge line around the block.) Along the way, we stopped for a quickie photo shoot.

I really like all the shades of grey in this outfit, all the way down to the flats. And once again, I am living in my new grey jeans. With the darker grey coat on, it kind of gives off an ombre effect.

It was a bit chilly out, so I thought this knit tam was a good topper. It has shades of bluish grey and purple in it, and a good friend knitted it a couple of years ago for me, as highlighted in this “Hats off to friends!” post. Below is a collage of how the knit hat looks with my hair, both long and short.

Grey is definitely one of my favorite neutrals. Do you have a lot of grey in your own wardrobe? Leave a comment and let me know.

Linking up with these lovely ladies!

    I like the varying shades of gray! I always feel like I have to wear my darker gray sweaters with anything but my gray jeans. I’m going to have to try this look!

    I love the sweater and the whole outfit! I love to wear gray and as a teacher I’m always looking for cute stuff to wear for holidays (valentines day in this case!).
