Life is lived in gray areas, don’t you think?

Lately every outfit I seem to put together is built around gray and black, gray and black. Seriously… look at my past month of outfits like this one, this one and this one. Lot’s of gray!!

When my life gets busy (a truth that only seems to escalate these days), I often lean on a monochromatic palette for its ease: perfect for any occasion, any season, any activity. And lately we’ve had a lot of gray days here in Chicago so it just feels appropriate to keep my outfits clean and simple without a lot of fuss. No doubt once the greenery returns so will my craving for a colorful wardrobe but, for now, as we all await the true return of spring, I’ll live my life in gray.

What are your thoughts on wearing gray on gray days? Do you prefer to battle the elements in a flurry of color or embrace the monochrome?
