Gray and....

Lately my favorite color has been gray. It's been the new "black" for me and I find that it pairs well with many hues, both as a main color, or to neutralize other colors. My favorite combination by far is gray and yellow, which I used for my wedding, but I've been wearing gray with apple green, pink (a lovely combo), and blue....so when I found this skirt, it inpsired me to wear gray with another color- red!

I bought this skirt at Urban Outfitters for only $19 bucks! It's listed online for $29.99 but the ones at the Pasadena store are tagged for $19. It's a gorgeous red and the cut-outs remind me of vintage lace. I paired it with a classic cardigan and simple black heels for a girly look, but I can also see it worn with little black booties for a more edgy look.

 Here it is on me

And just for fun, here's my favorite combo of gray and yellow used in our wedding (with teal accents)

Do you like pairing gray with anything? If so, what's your favorite color combination?

ive been really digging gray as well this season! ive found it to not be quite as severe as black but edgier than navy... especially when you can get shades like gunmetal. in fact i just ordered a pair of charles david heels in gray!

Yes totally agree Chulie! And I love gray shoes- I had the cutest gray heels that my dog Buddy chewed up- guess I'll have to buy a new pair! ;)
