Blue Skies Ahead

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.

A little colour, or not?

This blog started last Spring with our desire to not wear so much grey. I’m afraid to say, but I’m wearing many (but not 50) shades of grey these days.

I saw this cartoon in the newspaper yesterday and thought it pretty much summed up our love of grey. Off black is grey, isn’t it?😉
