“Gray skies are just clouds passing over.” – Duke Ellington
I think the colour combination of blue and grey is beautiful. Grey days are part of life and so are days with bright blue skies. I personally think the expression “winter blues” is a funny one, since most winter days are “winter greys” in the part of the world where I live.
Since I have enjoyed both winter blues (literally: bright blue skies up in the mountains) and winter greys (also literally: in the low lands) over the past few weeks, I have combined both colours in one winterly outfit this week.
My classy yet casual outfit consists of many “old” pieces (see also my blogpost about sustainability). The only new item is the blue bag, a Xmas gift from one of my sons. That makes the bag even more beautiful in my eyes.
I do not only love the colour combination, but also the combination of wide legged jeans with a tight-fitting jumper (see also my outfit for Valentine’s Day). The flare jeans create the illusion of long legs (with a little help of my grey boots) while the jumper hugs and embraces my petite frame perfectly. The necklace is the ultimate finishing touch, bringing the colour scheme into balance and spicing up the relatively simple jumper.
I would love reading what you think of today’s outfit, so please share your thoughts in the comments section below. Oh, and when you happen to know why “winter blues” are called exactly that, please share your knowledge! I am intrigued.
Thank you for visiting my blog and wishing you a happy day with more blue than grey.
