Grey Matters

One thing I love about fall fashion is layering. When you live in a crazy-cold climate like I do, layering is a must to keep warm! My scarf collection is growing and my latest addition is this cozy Chandi infinity scarf I picked up at Bamboo Ballroom on my birthday last week and since it was my bday this purchase was totally warranted ; ) I chose to pair it with my classic leather jacket I bought at Nordstrom Rack a year ago while in California for 50% off (score!) I have to admit that I love wearing black and grey, I'd say 75% of my closet is made up of clothing in this monochromatic scheme. It's just so easy to mix these neutral colors with other pieces. What about you? Do you like wearing more neutral colors or brighter hues or both? ; )

leather jacket - June via Nordstrom Rack, t-shirt - James Perse, jeans - Rachel Roy, 
booties - Vince Camuto via DSW, scarf - Chandi via Bamboo Ballroom
purse - Rebecca Minkoff via Shopbop, ring - H & M

Stylist Tip: You don't need to spend an arm and a leg on a leather/faux leather jacket, there are many out there for under $100.00.  If I didn't already have a leather jacket in my closet, I'd be picking up this one from Zara, in stores, (I checked this morning and it's sold out online! It was still there yesterday...darn it!)

Love that jacket on you! Greyscale looks are always so fun, because you can play with the different shades from white all the way to black.
(I agree, that Zara one is awesome! :D)
