I really love how certain celebrities (Jessica Alba comes to mind) are able to pull off an all gray ensemble.  Think faded gray jeans, a silvery tank top, and a billowy scarf.  The look is casual and understated, always chic.  I need to start incorporating easy ensembles like this into my wardrobe… this type of a look is perfect for those days when you need to look polished but don’t feel like trying too hard. I also may or may not have Fall shopping on the brain in a major way right now.  (How good are those ankle boots?  And the cords?  OK, all of it.)

Sweatshirt // Wallet // Dark Gray Tunic // Silk Tank // Shawl

Skinny Corduroy Pants // Tote (dream splurge) // Necklace // Shades // Tee

Shirt Dress // Labradorite Necklace // Ankle Boots (on my Fall wish list) // Gray Jeans //  Scarf // Heels (steal!)

    Love a grey ensemble! I may or may not have gone through a span during the spring when it’s all I wore… though as chic as Jessica Alba? Not so sure! Haha. Those are amazing ankle boots and that really is the perfect tee.

      Me too… it’s just so easy and chic. I dont think any of us can be quite as chic as J.A…. but we can certainly try!!

    There’s not a darn thing I don’t love about this post. The heels especially!

    • graceatwood says 8.1.12

      Aren’t they great? (And such a good deal!!)

  11. I agree — one would think that an all-over muted gray look would look drab, but it’s anything but. I think the serene color palette also pairs especially well with a gorgeous, dewy cheek and peachy tones in the makeup. It makes the whole look seem fresh.

    • graceatwood says 8.1.12

      Ooh! I really love the idea of pairing with peachy makeup… so perfect!

    Stop making me want to shop so much!

    • graceatwood says 8.1.12

      Aw… sorry!!

    • graceatwood says 8.1.12

      Me too – need them in my closet this Fall!

  15. Lauren M. Ferreira says 7.31.12

    I’ve been looking for gray jeans for a while but I can’t find any skinnies that are long enough.  They all hit right at the ankle or cropped!

    • graceatwood says 8.1.12

      I hear you. J.Brand Denim generally runs pretty long, so you might want to check them out!!

  16. yeah, that tote is insane, and so is the necklace. dream wish list for sure!!!

    • graceatwood says 8.1.12

      Right? If only I could afford it all! 😉

    I just love gray.  Two years ago, I purchased quite a bit of items in this color.  This year has been more navy and black print for me.

    • graceatwood says 8.2.12

      I’m such a fan, too. I’ve been on a navy kick but right now I’m all about gray for Fall. Just so easy to wear!
