Old Gray Sweater….But Make It Spring

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I’ll quit my grays right after I quit my black. Which will be about the same time hell freezes over, give or take an IKEA or two. (haha, just kidding but no seriously IKEA = hell)

My point? Get used to this gray sweater.

This sweater is the exact same sweater as my go-to black turtleneck just…gray. This is one of the few times that buying two different colors of the same thing paid off. Typically when I do that it backfires, and I end up sick of both…but in this case, it worked in my favor. Not only do I actually wear the two sweaters (like, allthetime), but I tend to wear them the exact same way: faded black jeans, boots, puffer coat.

Boring, maybe, but it’s for FEBRUARY.

Since it’s now March, I’m ready to burst into Spring with an explosion of…something. A kaleidoscope of……..no. A detonation of dye? A clap of color? A pop of paint? A combustion of chromaticity? #thesaurusfails

Whatever. Here’s an outfit for Spring.

Easy Spring Outfit Idea: Yellow Jacket + Snakeskin Boots

Morgan from Shop Buru sent over this little yellow jacket. I love what it’s doing for my gray sweaters. And the outfit, you’ll notice, is basically the same as my winter uniform…just tweaked.

Yup. Gray & black is still where it's at — even for spring. So adding a pop of color to our fav Equipment cashmere sweater is an easy outfit fix. BOOM!Yup.

  1. Surely I’m not the only one for whom gray is unflattering? A dark charcoal is OK, but anything lighter just washes me out. Adding a bright colored topper is a good tip!
