{Outfit Inspiration} Gray & Navy

Last weekend, when we ate our way through went to the State Fair of Texas, we were wearing coats and hats. But today, in true Texas-style, we’re back in the 80s. This is when it gets tricky…dressing for the weather, but also for the season. During these crazy days of fluctuating temps, I tend to cover either my legs or my arms.

I know you’re shocked to see me in head-to-toe neutrals…and believe me, I was tempted to wear red shoes…but went with the gray peep-toes for a more streamlined look. I do like a touch of the unexpected though, so I added a leopard necklace from Furbish.

The white tee has a ruffled trim that adds a fun layer under jackets and cardigans. I like even my basics to have a little touch of something special…it helps make an outfit more interesting. And take note, this is as clean as my hair gets! (Don’t get used to it, mom!)

What are you wearing these days? Are the temperatures as crazy in your area?

    Love your outfit. And, I am loving gray and navy this year. I promised myself I would move away from black for once. It was hot when we left Texas on Sunday, warm here yesterday and now we've turned the heat on!!

  25. Michigan has the same thing right now. 70 yeaterday and 55 today. Craziness! I just painted my livingroom gray with the inside of the coved ceiling the color of peacock blue. The rest of the ceiling is lighter gray, white trim, chocolate brown hardwood floors and red accent pieces. I think it is devine and rich. Gray goes with everything so I can change up my accessories all year round. Just like clothes:)
