A Classic Mix of Navy & Grey

In Five Shades of Grey, I shared five of my favorite grey finds for Fall.  You see, in addition to Fall's precious jewel tones, I tend to be drawn to the color grey this time of year.  It's such a staple neutral for building outfits.

For today's Looking Back, Looking Forward, I'm wearing a casual outfit that pairs grey with navy, a classic color combination.  The stripe sweater is in an off-season sale purchase from the Gap (under $20).  This sweater has held its shape quite well, unlike a few other Gap sweaters I own.  I regret, then, not buying it in the other colors, especially after this style was further reduced to around $8 back in March.

  3. Great outfit! I always enjoy seeing you in casual clothes. When I first discovered your blog I was teaching. We moved recently and I'm staying home. It's all about jeans for me these days!

    1. Thanks, Mica! When I purchased the sweater and tank, my Gap store had them on display like this (worn together). I totally adopted that look.
