I am so enjoying our forum outfit lab on layering grey, so I decided to give it a go.
I wore this out shopping with a friend this morning and I was complemented by a SA, but I am not sure I would wear it again. I feel it needs some modification. The two layers don't work as well as I would like them to.
I generally don't wear dark grey, as I don't think they flatter me as much as the light grey but my girlfriend disagrees?? I think my silver / grey open back sweater will be more flattering tone with the white pants in future.
So it is a true spring day here today and I was excited to wear my new white pants. As I was wearing a flat shoe I simply folded them once to show of the shoe (they sit just on the ankle below the ankle bone). I did wear the sleeves pushed up but forgot to do that for the photo. The skin of my arm showing seemed to help balance the outfit.
The shoes have been a wardrobe orphan:( I got the thumbs up from the Forum when I bought them about two years ago and I think I have worn them twice:( In about 60 seconds I went from loving them to thinking they looked like old lady comfort shoes!! Anyway I do like them and I am determined to wear them this season.
I think I will continue to work on and tweak this idea. What do you think?
Appreciated your thoughts
