I really debated about calling this post 50 Shades of Grey. For one, I’m not using 50 photos and didn’t want to mislead there. And secondly, although I haven’t read the books, I understand they can be a bit polarizing.
This all actually started as one of my fascinations triggered by finding a beautiful palette of wintery, arctic inspired colours and creating a board on Pinterest, (you can check out the complete collection here).
Even though we are nearing the end of July, it is still quite cold here in the southern part of Australia and since the sky is still grey most days, why not focus on grey and the positives of it rather than the gloom. It is a beautiful classic neutral. Up north you are starting to pair it up with your summer neons and brights in preparation of autumn. It makes a great backdrop to prints of all kinds, so why not give it its special moment in the sun?!
Here’s to grey and all its shades!
I love all these looks, girlie with frills, classic tailoring, dressy or casual, the many shades of grey are gorgeous.
What do you think? Is grey for winter only or would you wear it and it’s 50 shades any time of the year? Or is dressing all in grey just to gloomy for you?
