  1. Interesting combination- cool colours, but still summery. Very chic.

  2. I love the richness and coolness of grey. Years ago,when I worked, I went through a grey period, but rarely pared it with anything but the traditional black, red, white. Then I remembered a grey/camel combo I had in college (and I think you did a post on that pairing.) I am transitioning out of black as a base color and into grey because it is more forgiving for "les femmes d'un certain age."(Hope I did that correctly.) Looking forward to other grey combinations.

  4. When I see color combinations like these I am always reminded of your series of 'start with a scarf'. I would have never put these two Colors together either.

  5. I too am moving away from black now that I'm over 60, and will definitely look out for some green tops to go with my grey skirt and trousers. I think it's a combination that looks good for summer but will look equally good for autumn.

  6. Nice! I have some of that mint color in my summer wardrobe and am looking for ways to transition into fall. Pairing it with gray pants -- brilliant!

  7. So soft, so pretty and, yes, the perfect way to use last spring's mint cardigan in a way that reads fall

  8. Hooray for the gray! I'm looking forward to your handful. I recently bought a few gray (and purple) garments and although it is counter-intuitive, charcoal looks better close to my face than black. It's not only my older skin tone but also my graying hair. Add a fun scarf or jewelry and I'm ready to go.

  9. I hadn't thought of this combination - and I am so excited! I just bought a beautiful slate-grey leather jacket at Danier - a wishlist item :) I had thought to pair it with black, some cobalt/royal blue pieces I have, and reds. I'm going to dig around my closet and see what greens are still lurking in there.

  10. I'm pretty much done with black, except for certain items (such as yoga pants). Grey and navy are the new black! (at least for me)

  11. I wore gray today. Blouse and skirt. I am using more of your idea of long column of color.
    I also love combos of gray and pink, and gray and lavender.
    I've never tried this green and gray. It's lovely!

  12. Really not sure how I feel about the light greens. Maybe I will try a darker green witb the gray.

  13. I was at Soma today, purchasing some basic wardrobe pieces and some lovely undergarments, and there were so many gray/light green combinations! It was so pretty, and ironic that you posted today about this very color combo. Green is not my color, but this is very soothing to look at. Maybe I could buy seafoam sweaters for all of my coworkers, so that I will have something calming to look at...

    My summer sandals this year are silver, my summer cardigan is that same green... a lot of my summer wardrobe revolves around that, sometimes with a dash of pink... a great palette for my "greying" phase!
