Get The Look :: Head-to-toe Grey

First Birkenstocks, now endless layers of grey? Seattle sure seems to be right on trend these days, doesn't it? But when you actually live in the grey (or with the guys who are still wearing socks with their birks) the trend doesn't always seem quite as appealing.

However - being a black-and-white girl myself, I happen to own quite a bit of grey. And while I don't usually pair it all together at once, the art of layering this monochromatic look is one I'm sure I'll be trying come winter...

The secret to success with this style is contrasting fabrics, textures and shades. And a hit of black or white is a must...

Since I'm in the market for a new coat, I may just go in this direction. I was considering camel (such a classic!) but grey might be winning me over...

1. grey coat // 2. slouchy white beanie // 3. gems from catbird // 4. a slubby sweater // 5. perfect dark grey denim // 6. shearling (!!) foldover clutch // 7. white loafers. yes, white.

I know most of you are thinking I'm nuts for putting white shoes in a winter board, and yes, it's mighty unrealistic for most, so if you need a substitute, go with your basic black boot. Maybe something with a little texture? Or, white sneaks will always work in a pinch!

I added grey denim to my wardrobe for the first time last fall, and I've already worn them to death, so these super affordable pair might be on the next-to-purchase list.
