Grey And Black: A Winter Staple

I love wearing grey and black, especially in the winter. I usually pair it with something bright: it's such an easy base to work from. I've got my grey wool skirt and at least three grey cardigans and tops that I wear on a regular basis. And I wear black almost constantly: I have to wear all black at work too so it's surprising I'm not sick of it!

But as much as I love neutrals, I also love bright colours too. So today, when me and my boyfriend needed new comfy shoes for everyday use, I went for bright red Vans. My last pair of Vans (which were white: not a great choice as they got dirty very easily but I loved them) lasted for ages, and they're a nice, wide fit for my bunion-y feet. I just know the bright red will cheer me up when I'm wearing them on the cold and rainy days which are sure to come over the next few months!


Movember is going well in our house...

  4. I have always been the same way with black and have recently been trying to break the habit. haha I was always drawn to black to the point of looking at my wardrobe and being overwhelmed by it. Now, I don't seem to have enough black! Need to start bringing a little back in because it really is such a great winter/fall color when paired nicely... like you did! LOVE the last photo, so sweet!
