Cheery Gray

How do you add a bit of cheer to gray?

How about a bit of yellow?

It’s been dreadfully dreary here in NC lately.  Finally, today the sun came out for a bit.  Thank my stars, it’s going to be much more bearable tomorrow.

I can’t take day after day of the rain.  I need some sunshine in my life people! Much like this outfit would have been kind of blah…gray on gray on gray…if it weren’t for a bit of color from my cardigan.

I think it works, anyway.

I have a love hate relationship with pants.

…mainly because I’m short, curvy, and don’t have a typical thigh to butt to waist ratio.

Shopping for pants is almost as fun as shopping for a bathing suit. These pants from Banana Republic Factory Store is one of my favorite pairs.  It’s a wool blend, which is perfect for winter, they’re flattering, and they never need an iron (most important).

I’d rather eat dirt than iron.

You think I’m joking, but I would eat a little bit of dirt every morning rather than iron pants. Fact.

  1. I am right there with you on ironing. I hate it so much! But I love that cardigan!

  2. I LOVE your outfit! So cute. And you look exactly like Carla Gallo in the first picture! She’s so pretty (and obviously so are you!).

  3. I have a yellow cardigan just like that! I love it, but sometimes find it hard to tone down… grey is a great idea!

  4. Cute outfit! I have been in school for the last couple of years, so I haven’t had to wear dress pants, thank goodness. I always find them so hard to fit as well. 🙂 I am also on board with no ironing; I don’t even own an iron …

  5. Shopping for pants is my least fave shopping trip- my short torso and long legs don’t fit in most pants :/ Gah, ironing is one of my least fave household chores- I’ve have 6 pairs of pants waiting to be ironed for days… I’m starting to realized the longer I wait, the longer it’s gonna take to get them straight again!
