Pale Grey & #Passion4Fashion LinkUp

My love affair with grey continues. I’m very much in to minimal input with maximum output lately. Clean lines with the added extra of a great necklace and some nice finishing accessories.

Prior the spending ban i had focused on getting some really good basics, good bags and shoes and some versatile pieces.

This H&M grey dress is one of those pieces. Grey again, i obviously fell hard and fast for it. But when i saw that it was a super soft thick sweatshirt material with an exposed back zip, well i was doubley sold.

I haven’t much been in to dresses lately, but this one got me back in my dress groove. It’s comfy swishy skirt feels lovely on and makes it nice and easy to wear. Perfect for my first step back in to wearing dresses.

Yet again i kept it all simple, with block basic colour of grey and just the black shoes and tights. 

Simple formulas are nice to repeat, i find it makes for easy dressing for when you’re running on about 5 hours a night sleep for the past 6 nights and can’t string together a co-coherent sconversation even if you tried. 

But at least i can string an outfit together;)

    You can not go wrong when sticking to the minimum and classy look. This ensemble was a very good reminder of this. So simple yet so classy and stylish.

  15. January 26, 2015 / 9:10 am

    Wonderful shades of grey!

    You look so stylish! Lovely.

    I hope it is ok to say that I'm concerned with your side-facing image. As a posture doctor, I can't help but notice your rather prominent forward head posture. Have you ever had a car accident by chance? Do you suffer headaches and/or shoulder/neck tension and pain?

    Wow what a stunning coat, love the shoes too. Such a great look on you, the longer line coat really suits you.
