happily gray

no not that grey…but i was inspired to write this by that little movie. gray can be sexy. i was looking through my closet the other day and realized that i have a lot of gray clothes which i wear a lot. why? maybe because it’s been colder than you know what so the color matches my mood or maybe it’s because gray provides a neutral palette so that accessories or even pops of color can be added. i prefer to think it is the latter. in any event i wear gray from head to toe in the winter but i have to be careful because i don’t want to look like a mortician or heaven forbid, an attorney. so one of my goals this weekend is going to go back and look at all the gray clothing items and see how we can make it fun. i think i’ll find that with a bright skirt or pant or even what i call a happy necklace the gray can be taken out on the town.

ps. sunday is the oscars and while admittedly i haven’t seen the movies, i’ll be watching to see what everyone’s wearing because isn’t that the point of awards shows anyway.
