WIW : Touch of Grey

Hi Ladies,

Keeping it simple today.  It's my day off and school assembly, grocery shopping and a quick lunch with DH have been the order of the morning.
Oh and it looks like Autumn may have arrived lol

I did a little shopping earlier this week as a couple of casual knits caught my eye over at our local shopping centre.  I came home with this sweater in the grey, also bought it in black.  I then picked up another V neck neck black sweater with side front zippers - this has been a bit of  HEWI for me and I have a pinned outfit I cannot wait to replicate:)

Jeans - Katies
Knit - Emerson
Open Toe Boots :  Rubi
Grey and white Tiger Scarf : Cross Roads

Thanks for looking.  How does this work together for a casual run around look?

xxx Deborah

    It works perfectly! I just bought a very similar grey sweater. I don't have an only grey print scarf...mine has shades of pink in it...but now I think I will look for one!

  • Caro in Oz replied 9 years ago

    Simple, relaxed & fantastic - you look wonderful in grey :)

  • rabbit replied 9 years ago

    Wonderful outfit, that soft gray is a great color on you and I love the 'texture' in the scarf and top.

  • Jaime replied 9 years ago

    Looks terrific both with and without the scarf!

  • SarahTheWhite replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous! I love the softness of this color scheme on you, and it is still very congruent with your style. This is so beautiful on you...

  • Neel replied 9 years ago

    Very pretty sweater. I love the hem and the fluid not clingy style. I think this is a great outfit for running around town. Casual yet chic :-)

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous! Love the new sweater. I like the rolled pants with the sandals, and the scarf adds a floaty, light touch.

  • Jane replied 9 years ago

    What a great look. The grey is soft and flattering and the boots with the toe cut away adds edge. Your hair looks fab.

  • lyn67 replied 9 years ago

    Are you kidding, Deb? Brilliant hi/low fit color and all:-) Still on a diet? You are so tall and fit looking:-)

  • Karin L H replied 9 years ago

    You look great! Love the casualness of the sweater but you still manage to look very chic. Love it with the scarf but both ways work!

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Thanks Lyn!  8kg down and 2 more to go:)  Thanks for the tall comments you know I am not quite 5Ft 2?:)

    Fabulous! I love the drape of that sweater and it look lovely with the scarf. A wonderful casual, chic look.

  • replied 9 years ago

    This is one of my favorite outfits that I have seen you it.  It is gorgeous.  

  • Summer replied 9 years ago

    This is beautiful, Deborah.  You look lovely in greys, especially with the scarf - very, very nice.

  • Astrid replied 9 years ago

    Awesome look! I love the color of the new sweater. I really like the version with the scarf.

  • AM replied 9 years ago

    Absolutely gorgeous. And I completely understand the challenge of finding a special sweater, and this is special. So well done. Package the entire outfit and send it to me immediately. Thank you. 

  • dakotacheryl replied 9 years ago

    If I weren't 6 inches taller than you, I'd love to shop in your closet...love your style!!

    Of the two photos, I like the version with the scarf better, but they are both fabulous!!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago

    Both beautiful renditions Deb and wow! You look fabulous in that light grey.

  • texstyle replied 9 years ago

    Perfect!  Love the simple clean lines and the grey is wonderful on you.

  • Tanya replied 9 years ago

    So pretty.  You look beautiful in soft grey.

  • Angie replied 9 years ago


  • Joy replied 9 years ago

    The soft greys are beautifil on you. I like the outfit with and w/o the scarf equally. The sweater has a wonderful fit, fluid but not overwhelming.

  • replied 9 years ago

    Gorgeous on you, Deborah. I love that shade of grey and the scarf is amazing and beautifully draped. You look running-around chic.

  • Suz replied 9 years ago

    This is so lovely on you, Deb! I really like that it works equally with scarf and without. 

  • replied 9 years ago

    Love it - and especially with that beautiful scarf !

  • Kirstjen replied 9 years ago

    Very pretty!  The scarf is gorgeous. 

  • Lyn D. replied 9 years ago

    Love the  knit Deborah!
    I am feeling more for my scarfs so far this year, though it has been too warm to wear them yet :)

  • Laurie replied 9 years ago

    Beautiful outfit. Wow, that scarf just amps it up.  

  • Echo replied 9 years ago

    Amazing outfit, and I especially love the scarf.

    BTW, the title must have been intentional, and I hadn't thought of the song in years. It is now on a continuous loop in my head.

  • tricia w. replied 9 years ago

    So. Perfect.

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Echo!  yes it was intentional;)

  • minigrrl replied 9 years ago

    Looks awesome! I was thinking - wow, that must be a huge house with high ceilings and doors because you do look lovely and tall. And then I read you're not even 5' 2"!! Normal sized doors, then!!! :-) (I am praying for autumn to come to my part of the world (Brisbane) but looks like we may be in for another week of around 30, sigh...)

  • Deborah replied 9 years ago

    Lol minigirrl, it's both ;)  My home does have high ceilings and tall doors:)  I feel for you in Brisbane.  Here in Bendigo it is cooling down but tomorrow is expected to be 28 and sunny!

  • Deb replied 9 years ago

    Beautiful in its simplicity!

  • No Fear of Fashion replied 9 years ago

    Yes, lovely outfit. With scarf in autumn and with necklace when it gets a bit warmer. I take it you are an all black/grey/white girl?
