This no grey challenge is particularly hard for me this year. I can’t explain why, but it just is. Most of my shirts and tees are grey and the weather here is still quite cool, so I don’t feel like the summer t-shirts are ready to come out of storage.
Here is a typical outfit of the past few weeks:
Grey cargo pants, grey shirt, black and white cardigan, boots and a scarf. It looks good together, but it’s
50 many shades of grey.
That said, there was a little brightness over the weekend. A quick overnight trip to the Seattle area got me this t-shirt:
Isn’t that a pretty green-blue colour? It’s by Maison Jules and apparently a store favourite.
The kitchen also got a pick me up with this tea towel from Target:
Isn’t it fun? It was only $2 and such a nice pop of colour for the kitchen.
Back to the no grey challenge and I would have to say that my progress to date has been sad. Not quite a failure, but no passing grade. At least two days per week, I am not wearing grey and I feel pretty put together. But the rest of the week…blah, blah, blah.
Oh well, not to worry. I feel that blue skies are definitely coming my way.
