Grey

Sunday, April 19, 2015




Grey is the flavour of the season as well as my current obsession and speaking of current obsessions, adding my plum lipstick to my very grey outfit is another thing I can't quite help myself from doing.                                                                                          
I bought the skirt from here since I was under the minimum spend limit for free shipping. Paying for shipping is one thing I strictly hate, preferring to instead add another item or two. In this case, I had a draped look in mind and although the skirt wasn't the stuff of my dreams I bought it hoping I'd be able to create something. By this time I was exhausted of my inability to find a draped and flowy dress in grey despite hunting the shops and sorting through racks of draped dresses that failed to make the impression I had visualised. Most of the pieces I found got the memo about the draping but the supremely tight fitting it was paired with only contradicted the loose and bohemian brief. After purchasing this particular piece, I began to search for  tops/cardigans to add to the layered/drapey look and was lucky enough to pickup the high-low top. I have always avoided high-low tops/dresses since such dresses bring to attention to the knees whilst tops focus on the crotch, areas I personally prefer to avoid. That said, this top is definitely the exception to the rule as it compliments the skirt perfectly! You can find a similar top here. It created layers, kept it breezy and the side drape detail of the skirt lent the addition of a slit, everything that has been in trend over the last few months. The gladiator sandals I wore above were purchased last year and add to my idea of 'monochrome Greek' (yes that's a thing now).
