COZY UP WITH GREY

While black will always be my favorite, I find myself gravitating towards greys as the weather cools. I love the differing shades and textures, and how fun it is to play with mixing them together to create understated interest. I rounded up some of my favorite grey pieces for this fall (spoiler alert: I own almost all of them!) and hope you love them and get some inspiration!
1 Express OTK Boot | 2 Michael Kors Sneaker | 3 Madewell Whisper Cotton Tee | 4 Street Level Reversible Tote | 5 Chloe Faye | 6 Express 3-way Marled Sweater
I just picked these Express OTK boots up and I'm.In.Love. I've been looking for a pair to add to my wardrobe since last year, and while I still dream of the Stuart Weitzman Highlander (what girl doesn't!?), I knew I wasn't prepared to spend $800 on them. I've tried several lower-cost pairs, but none of them stayed up as smoothly as the SW boots, until these. They are soft, lightweight, and with a toggle-tie elastic they effortlessly adjust to your thigh and STAY PUT! The biggest selling feature for me? They don't bunch around the ankles. At almost 1/10th the cost of the Highlanders, these were a no-brainer! I sized up 1/2 size and they fit perfectly.
The Michael Kors sneakers have been my go-to casual shoe since I snagged them last fall, and I am so excited they're back in stock. These run TTS, and they are comfy even without breaking them in. The python print adds interest while the grey shades keep things neutral. You won't regret adding these to your wardrobe.
The Madewell Tee is the softest shirt I own. It runs big, so size down. The sweater (6) is incredibly soft and cozy, and can be worn three ways! Cowl neck, off one shoulder slouchy or completely OTS. I love the versatility! It's basically three sweaters in one! Runs TTS (I'm an xs, and it fit loosely without being baggy)
The bags. Here you find the one piece I don't own and one piece that I take everywhere. The Chloe Faye is on my dream list, so I had to include it, because if you're looking for a neutral grey splurge, this bag is definitively splurge-worthy. The tote I've had for just over 2 years, and it's still in great shape! no fraying, wearing, tearing, or smudging to be seen! It's large enough to use for a day out shopping and I love that it's reversible! And for less than $50, you can't really go wrong.
Let me know if you pick any of these up! I would love to hear how they work for you!
