Grey craze

IMG_6965

So, blanket scarves. We can agree that they are a little bit ridiculous, right? I can’t help but make fun of myself all day when I wear mine. I call it my scarf beard, haha. But you know what? They are totally amazing and SO warm! I’m totally on board the blanket scarf bandwagon. I may or may not want one or two more… πŸ˜‰

Meanwhile, I kept this outfit super comfy-casual with my elbow patch sweatshirt, a go-to pair of skinny jeans, and my red loafers. I realized I’ve been wearing my boots a lot lately and I should get in more wears with my loafers and sneakers before the snow comes! (And, sadly, the snow is coming–this weekend probably. Sigh!)

It is no secret that grey is one of my favorite colors to wear. For today’s outfit, I took my love of wearing grey to a whole new level: monochrome grey. I’m not going to lie, I was kind of intimidated to wear this look in public (and by public I mean the office I share with a few other people). Also, to be honest, I felt like I was really “normcore” (though not intentionally). My pants are so comfortable that they felt like sweats, so all day I felt like I was wearing a grey sweatsuit. Haha. While I likely won’t be repeating this exact outfit, it was fun to play around a bit and create a look I would totally not have created a year ago!

    • Thank you! πŸ™‚ I actually wasn’t planning on doing a how-to since there are so many out there, but I’ll describe it since it’s super easy. Basically I just folded it in half diagonally so it’s a giant triangle, then I wrapped each end around my neck so the triangle is in front (keeping the ends shorter than the triangle), and I finished it by tying the ends together to keep them up and kind of “fluff up” the scarf a bit more. Then I spend time making sure it’s draping how I want it to. Hope that helps! πŸ™‚
