Summer Casual in Shades of Grey

What can I say?  I just love grey.  The color, in all its shades from heather to deep charcoal, is such a staple neutral for building outfits.  I’m excited to see that grey is a prominent color in the Fall 2013 color report.  I feel somewhat justified, then, in wanting the new J Crew bar stripe tee in heather smoke and the Banana Republic ‘Carlie’ pointed toe flat in silver star right now.

The grey skies in St. Louis yesterday prompted me to sport a few shades of grey on a summer day.  I wore my J.Crew Sanur dress as a skirt and paired it with a lighter grey tee.  Grey sandals, a python tote, and a pink necklace add finishing touches.

    I love this outfit! And I also love your lipstick. Next time I wear grey, I want to add some pink. Thanks for the inspiration!
