Outfit of the Week: A Little Grey, A Little Black

Outfit of the Week: A Little Grey, A Little Black


I totally enjoyed the past two weekends of nothingness after having a busy summer and anticipating a busy holiday season ahead. I did, however, venture out for groceries and a much-needed root touch up and trim. I was so nervous because I was going to a new stylist. My hair is so hard to cut correctly in layers, and thankfully, it all turned out wonderfully. So here's what I wore to get my hair cut--again with grey and again another outfit getting my hair cut. So?

Song: I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You--Colin Hay I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You by Colin Hay on Grooveshark

When: Friday
Where: Paragon Salon
What I Wore:

  • It was deliciously brisk outside. Of course, as I type this, it's now 74. Hmph. But let me relieve that brief windy weather. I started off with a grey sweater, to match the cool weather and the sadness of this song.
  • Next, came the omnipresent black skinnies, and it was decided I was only wearing two colors.
  • Since it was cold, and I will use just about any excuse to wear a scarf (even getting the mail. TRUE STORY!), I wore this black and grey bird scarf. I don't remember where I got it, but it looks similar to the one above...just grey birds. The only other accessory I wore was my watch; I fail to mention it but it's always there.
  • I will also wear boots for any reason, and these grey boots were just right. 
  • For beauty, I curled my hair with a flat iron, wore the faintest aubergine smokey eye, and a nude lip. It somehow all worked together.
Me, in pieces, before haircut/color and anxiety attacks

Do you ever wear just 2 colors? One color?
Do you have anxiety attacks about seeing yourself on the Internet? 
What about a new hair stylist?

  2. That is one lovely scarf! The print is just darling! I definitely don't like looking for a new hair stylist-- I'm very picky about it and only go to Asian stylists because they're the only ones who understand Asian hair! When I lived in a much smaller city, I couldn't find one and went without haircuts for MONTHS at a time!

  5. I think you looked lovely in just black and gray. I'll often do blue jeans and all black. Glad you had some down time to relax.

  6. I'm a huge fan of grey and black. I don't mind wearing only two colors, or even just one color! Love the boots.

  8. I love mixing colors. Even when I'm wearing one tone outfit, I try to accessorize it with other complimentary colors. Grey and black is my absolute favorite to play with. xoxo

  13. your hair looks great! and yes, I get anxiety over switching hairstylists ~ I was so loyal to mine I was having to take 1/2 days off work to get out to my salon and back, then realized how ridiculous I was being when I have a great salong walking distance from me (I know, ridiculous!)

  18. You always have the cutest outfits! I love that you pared boots with pants...I've been noticing a lot of chicks I work with (at a law firm) paring short skirts with boots (and no leggings, tights, etc) I hate that...HATE IT!!!! Isn't the whole point of boots is that it is cold enough to wear them? Okay I'll stop venting! {I do feel a little better now}

  21. Great outfit! That lipstick is the perfect shade. :)

  22. I am fairly brave when it comes to hairstyles. I wear more than 2 colors usually and I think my face looks old in pictures so I always look down. :)

  23. Love gray and black together and so glad your hair turned out great! I have total anxiety before a photo goes up on the internet and whenever I see my photo up, I usually have that moment of cringe and then it's like, 'moving on'...

  24. I never wear just one color head-to-toe, but I do wear just two colors fairly often especially in winter - my cold weather wardrobe has lots of black and grey in it, and I often add a pop of color, like a burgundy satchel or a purple scarf.

    This outfit is very much something I would wear myself!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am guilty of wearing just one color (all black), but sometimes I'll do black and gold. I love simplifying things, so one or two colors seem to be enough for me! Great post, Elle!

  26. Love that outfit! I'm the queen of black & gray. There are endless possibilities with a wardrobe full of black and gray. Those pieces go w/ anything and everything.

    I get nervous with new stylists too. It's awful. Rather go to a dentist...lol

  27. I love grey and black with a touch of shimmer! Love your scarf girl! :D
    At first I was sensitive when I started fashion blogging, but it's like one big happy family now. Everyone is merely trying to help each other out. :D

  32. I wear my GAP black skinnines at LEAST 1x a week. I am worried they are going to fade from so much wear. Best purchase of the year for me...they are so versatile!

  38. Oh do I have anxiety about seeing a new stylist...I went to the same guy for about 5 yrs and when his ego got too big I had to find another place. I have thick and wavy Asian hair that is triple the density of Caucasians. I do not have anxiety about seeing myself on the internet. And yes I like to wear 2 colours :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. There's something so sophisticated about wearing gray and black. And I love it with a pretty, pink lip!

    ReplyDelete
  40. i think i've only posted 2 images of me on my blog... i'm not big on taking photos of me... ha!

    love the outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I also have been wearing a lot of black and gray. I love those boots! Super cute!

  42. I almost never go to the same stylist.. probably because I've been moving lots lately.. and sometimes I'm my own stylist :D I like the outfit :)

  43. I love that sweater, and the scarf is DARLING!
