50 Shades Update

So, it’s been a while since I posted about my progress on my 50 shades days of no grey.  The challenge started on April 1st and will end on May 20th.  Next week.

I have to say that this year, I was not nearly as successful as I was last year.   I’ll blame the weather, the clothes in my closet and the clothes in my closet.  But really, it was me.  I was feeling lazy and blah.

However, the past couple weeks have been a little bit more successful as you will see by these photos:

Cute plaid shirt in blue and Hudson jeans.
Lucky t-shirt, TNA coloured denim and sad grey cardigan
TNA coloured denim and cute floral flats from DSW
Tshirt from Macy’s, necklace from Stella & Dot, J Brand jeans, sad grey cardigan (again), New Balance runners and walking boot for my broken toe 😦


So, just a quick update to show that colour has returned and to let you know that my sad grey cardigan will soon be banished to the upper shelves of my closet.

I will try to make the last 5 days of my challenge worthwhile and way more interesting for both you and me.

Work clothes

About 4 years ago, I became a stay at home mom. I would have to say my “work clothes” have sometimes been questionable due to this change in status. Most days, I would get it right (or close), and there are other days, when I should not have left the house.

Since starting our 50 Day challenge, I have to say I have 90% more good days than not. Except for yesterday. My son was home sick from school, and since I couldn’t go anywhere, I ended up like this:


Tired grey hoodie and great grey sweats from Lululemon.

But today was different! Since I had a visit to a friend’s house and errands to run, my fairy godmother made me look like this:

Great top from Aritzia, Hudson jeans and striped Splendid flats.

Some days it is easier to get dressed for work than others!

Weekend round up

Since this project is mainly about clothes, I thought I should post some pictures from my weekend. Yes, you will see a bit of grey, but otherwise there is some colour!


This weekend, I wore my new fav Hudson jeans most of the time and switched up the tops and scarfs.

The first photo shows a blue and white striped cardigan that I found at J Crew outlet. In the second photo, I have on my fav Lululemon sweat pants and yes, they are grey and oh so comfortable! The third photo is with my Pantone inspired boyfriend shirt and Toms. Lastly, I re-worked the first outfit by changing the to a jacket but keeping the scarf which has several great shades of blue.

I even had 2 compliments on the colours I was wearing and this never happened while I wore grey. Hmmmm. Things that make you say hmmmm…..
