Feeling Grey

Monday, March 30, 2015

Rings: c/o Urban Peach (less than $5)

The title of the post expresses how I have been feeling lately. Chicago's weather went from extremely cold to miraculously in the 70s and then drops down to freezing again. I'm sure you can tell by the backdrop of the photos that there is no sign of Spring! It looks as if I took these photos in the late Fall haha. This lack of Spring makes me feel depressed or in a grey mood.  This park usually has a lot of life. A lot of greens and beautiful floral landscapes. The weather change also got me really sick. I lost my voice, coughing nonstop, and just not feeling myself. So I decided to dress according to my mood. I put together a monochromatic grey look. I've never tried grey on grey so I told myself heck why not. They do say you are what you dress ;)

  14. Sorry to hear you've been sick. That's never fun. On a lighter note, though, this gray outfit is awesome on you. Your legs look miles long in those jeans and your shoes are to die! Hope you get better soon, hun.

  21. I'm convinced I need grey skinnies in my life. Slowly but surely they almost seem to be replacing the black skinny. I feel ya on the weather, in Ohio it's snowed twice since we had one lovely 70 degree day. Its so dreary here. ):

  23. As much as I hate all of the greyness of the cloudy skies and dreary landscapes at this time of year...I do love the monochromatic outfit you have going on! The layering is totally on point!
