black + gray

...with a touch of navy




Top (love this one) /  Jeans old - similar here, herehere, here  / Shoes  (pretty alternatives here, here) / Bag  /  Watch / Pearl Bracelet - almost exact here





Lately, I've been reaching for neutrals a lot and not even on purpose.  Last week consisted mostly of black and white looks (wish I would have taken more ootd photos).  I'm sure this is just a phase...as I still love love color. And one of the ways that's evident? I can't seem to part with some of my colorful closet pieces.  They sit pretty, and probably sad, on the hanger feeling neglected.


 So one of these days I'm going to go thru my closet again and list some pieces for sale on my Instagram.  It's going to be one of those days I just feel like getting rid of everything and then regretting it few weeks later!  Story of my life! (been working makinge smarter purchases...it's a process apparently...)


Did you ever get 'rid' of any pieces from your closet and then regretted it later?

    1. It's hard to find a really good pair and have them be the right color too. I'm purchased a pair from H&M recently, a bit darker than these, but they feel more like jeggings (still soft). I think they're going to look great with boots (mid rise and only $20)

  6. Sometimes you just need a "closet reset" and wear the neutrals to transition before fall! Love those shoes!

    1. Thank you Andrea :) I'm a firm believer in investing in a really good pair of jeans. Even though I keep trying to find cheaper options they're NEVER the same and as soft and comfy as my pricier ones. Worth the money I'd say ;)

  14. Those those grey skinnies! I've been able to fit perfect into the Old Navy rockstar fit and just recently bought a grey pair. I've worn them once and already know they'll be a staple this fall. I know what you mean about parting with clothes–I always feel like I can't get rid of them because I might need them when I least expect it. Ha!

    1. I've been eyeing the gray ON rockstar pair. I had them in my cart but their sizing is off on me so I'm going to have to go into the store and try them on. Haha, I'm glad I'm not the only one. I feel like I'm hoarding clothes because I 'might' need it some day haha. Hard to apply the 6 month rule...I'd have to get rid of most of my closet in that case.

  15. You look so pretty, Lily. I'm so partial to neutrals, and I've been loving your looks even more lately. It's funny that you mention parting with some pieces. Truthfully, I've almost never regretted getting rid of things. It is more refreshing than anything, and makes room to shop more:) I have a few bags full of things I'd like to sell, but I've never actually done it online. I need to get on board with that.
    Happy Friday, my friend!

  16. Smarter purchases are so hard when you're an impulse buyer (like me!). But I don't think I've regretting getting rid of anything...I need to do closet clean outs more often.
