Once Upon A Time......


I did not believe gray and brown went together. 

Then along came Pinterest, which helped change my mind........

1//2//3

Gray jeans, brown boots, a scarf, and a white tee..........all things I own..........easy to duplicate. 


Why did I ever doubt brown and gray? 

Why?

Forgive me.

Has anyone else out there been color-combo-converted once Pinterest was born?

  2. Cute! Yes, I have quite often been inspired by Pinterest. Most recently, I saw a picture of spices and was inspired to arrange all those red, orange, red-orange, and yellow colors together in my own closet. And now, I love to walk in and see them!

  3. Before pinterest I am first inspired by fashion bloggers who are very talented and creative enough to put fashion in there own perspective and style. Then comes pinterest which I can easily browse what color I like to look and be inspired. I like your outfit.

  6. Super cute. And easy. I combined gray dress/brown boots last Sunday and felt very autumn-ish.

  7. You look great! And I felt the same way until recently. Now I still don't care for grey and khaki together - not enough contrast. But grey and cognac /tan are nice. :)

  8. you look great! i love the color combo. i have to step out of my "black and brown is a 'no, no'" box. it's hard to mix colors you have always been told don't mix. :)

  9. I love this color combo & the scarf is a great accent! :)

  10. I have a friend who absolutely refuses to pair gray and brown. It's pretty deeply rooted in her psyche, so I'm not sure if she'll ever change her mind, Pinterest or not! I'm a big fan of gray tights with brown boots.

  13. i love pinterest! i also used it as inspiration for almost anything: clothing, crafting...
    i've recently started some crafting projects inspired by pinterest: http://mustbeliberating.blogspot.com.es/2012/10/getting-ready-for-fall-part-two.html

    i never doubted brown and gray, though.. i guess i always loved brown accessories and i have loooots of gray clothes. I love all the shades of gray, especially in stockings, jackets and sweaters

  14. Haha, today I posted about brown and black together and how I didn't think those went together! I LOVE your boots...where are they from?? I've been searching for a pair just like those.

  16. ooh girl - no color palette is sacred to me. :) i mix black, brown, and gray all the time! yesterday i wore a black dress, black tights, brown belt and brown boots... and a fuschia cardigan! :) i love mixing colors now.. i think i used to be afraid but i've learned that anything goes as long as you have the confidence to pull it off --- or if you can FAKE the confidence to pull it off! :)

  18. I will agree, pinterest has also opened my eyes to things I would have never thought of. Your brown and gray are perfection! Visiting from WIWW :), and now following your blog!

  21. Pinterest has converted me on a lot of things. Like cooking, before I would have never considered it but then came along the pins with the words "so easy to make!" and "only 5 ingredients"

  22. Girl, I LOVE how you actually use Pinterest....I need to join you on this journey!!! You rocked it!!

  23. Thanks to you, I too never thought gray and brown go together. I do love the combination and I can't wait to try this outfit combo.

  24. I as well love the gray and brown and have been putting those colors together now for a few year. I think of gray as I would black or white.
    I haven't seen an outfit yet that you haven't looked good in. You look fantastic no matter what you wear.

  30. Love this look! Grey & brown wouldn't be my first though usually, but I wasn't anti-it either. I still don't like to mix darker browns and black (light browns/tan and black are fine). I've come to accept that navy and black are ok, too, when done right.

  31. I think you have totally convinced me that I'm wearing brown and grey today; provided this thrifted fair isle sweater fit me! Thanks for the inspiration!
