No Grey Challenge #3

The No Grey Challenge #3 started on April 1st and I pretty much failed the whole first week.  Since then, I think I have done very well.   Aside from not posting enough of my daily outfits, I have been refraining from wearing grey.

Here is a quick roundup of me and my wardrobe over the past couple of weeks:

Black tee, Flying Monkey jeans, Favourite Animal Print Slip Ons and Cargo style jacket from Gap

I think the Gap cargo jacket might have to go.  The proportions just don’t look right on me and the jacket feels a little short. What do you think?

Denim shirt from Aritzia/TNA and my new fav camo pants from Gap Factory.

I saw someone wearing denim and camo and I thought it looked cute.  I think I look a little frumpy in this outfit.  The denim shirt is a boyfriend style and perhaps I could use a more fitted version.

Boyfriend cardigan from Old Navy, soft pink and white striped tee from Joe Fresh, Flying Monkey jeans and good ole Converse.

I felt pretty good the day I wore this outfit.  It was sunny outside, the pink striped tee is new and was easy to wear.

Grey, yes a grey long sleeved animal print shirt by Splendid.

This  grey top that has slipped into my outfit as it was a little chilly out and I just wanted to wear it!    My first week of the challenge had a few fails, but I’ve done no grey since then. That’s pretty good, isn’t it?

The challenge for me officially ended on May 20th – yesterday.  I have put all my long sleeved grey tops and sweaters away for the Spring and Summer months, but I will start wearing my short sleeved grey tops and cardigans now that my challenge is over.  I’m hoping to keep from wearing grey all day every day, so wish me luck (and maybe a few new tops to wear) !

No Grey Challenge #3

If you have been reading our blog for a couple years now, you will know that we started this as challenge to stop wearing grey for 50 days.  It had been a long cold, dreary winter and grey clothing had crept in every day from October to March and we were tired of it.  I wouldn’t say that we aced the challenge, but we made a pretty good attempt to add some colour to our lives.  You can read about our first year’s challenge here.  I also tried last year to do the 50 days of no grey challenge and I was partly successful.

So, today is Sunday April 12th and I actually started the 3rd Annual 50 Days of No Grey Challenge on April 1st.  Let’s call it a soft launch.  The first day was a complete fail.  I was in grey from head to toe.  Literally.  SO, I didn’t even bother to take a picture.  The second and third days were also filled with grey. However, the past few days I’ve managed to not wear any grey.

See this:

boyfriend jeans, white tee, long cardigan from Aritzia and my fav animal print slip ons.

And this:

new Flying Monkey jeans, new long style blue tee, faux leather jacket and ballet flats

And this:

Blue plaid shirt and Flying Monkey jeans

And this:

Madewell striped tee, Gap jacket, Flying Monkey jeans (again) and my fav slip ons

Just a short roundup of a few of my non-grey outfits over the past week.  I realize we are almost done the second week of my challenge and I’ll post a few more photos later this week.

After I try and plan something to wear that isn’t grey.
