Hey there, I hope you had a nice long Labor Day Weekend! I have another new transitional fall outfit for you today. This time I’m styling a monochromatic look with shades of grey.
Yes, grey jeans again. I think I have more grey and black jeans in my closet right now than blue jeans, so expect to see a lot of them this season. These jeans are the Good American Good Legs Cig in a faded grey wash. They fit snug through the hips and thighs but are cut straighter from calf to ankle for an updated silhouette.
Good American jeans are created with a gap-proof contoured waistband, so they’re great for ladies who tend to have issues with jeans being too big in the waist. That is not my issue, but I love how they shape the bootie and hold everything in through the middle. They have great stretch and recovery and never bag out.
They may seem tight when you put them on, but give them a half-hour of wear, and they soften up and fit great. They’re also not as pricey as some of the other popular designer brands, such as Paige, Mother, and AG.
This sweater is what I would call an oatmeal color. Oatmeal is a shade of beige with cool undertones, which works really well for my coloring. I’m always drawn to this color in the fall and winter, and I love how it pairs with grey for an effortlessly chic neutral look.
I’m also a huge fan of a sleeveless turtleneck, and this one is really good. It’s cut perfectly around the arms, for no gaping or exposing of bra straps, which is a huge pet peeve of mine. The details on this one are really pretty too. Unfortunately sizes are getting depleted, but I’m hoping they restock.
The fabric is soft and comfortable against the skin. It’s made of 94% acrylic/5% nylon/1% elastane, so perfect for those who can’t wear wool. It runs true to size, or you could size up for more length, but I’m wearing my usual small.
These mules are my latest shoe crush. They’re surprisingly easy to walk in, and I love the braided detail, the pointy toe, and the wood grain stacked heel. This versatile neutral shade will go with so much this fall. They look great with grey, but they’re also a beautiful complement to light wash blue jeans.
Again, sizes are getting depleted, but I do expect to see these restocked. Last spring, these popular Dolce Vita sandals sold out but were eventually restocked, and they’ve been readily available ever since. I predict these mules will be the same, as they’re available for pre-order on the Dolce Vita website. I sized down half as I always do in mules, but if you have normal or high arches, stick with your usual size.
Since this outfit is rather plain, I wore a statement bracelet to add a focal point and bring some texture and pattern to the look. This is the Faro boho cuff, gifted to me by Victoria Emerson Designs, and all of her bracelets are currently BOGO free.
For even more pattern and texture, I once again carried my Clare V. tote in the mini cat print. It just seems to go with everything right now!
I love this elevated neutral look, how about you? When the weather gets cooler, I can throw my black leather jacket on top, and I might swap the mules for booties. Scroll on down to shop the look!
