Layers of Grey

Today's Thrifty Thursday post is an outfit post.  Here is today's outfit:

It was a long day

Multiple layers due to the extreme cold.  I'm wearing a s/s cardi over a polka-dot elbow cardi over a l/s turtleneck over a tank.  The bottom part is also multiple layers: footless lined tights over regular tights over knee socks over another pair of footless tights.  All crammed into my Spanish patrol boots. Was still a bit chilly outside even with a coat, hat and gloves.

Most of the items are from various boxing day sales, but the scarf was only a $1 from my fave vintage store which due to renovation and reconstruction is sadly no more.  The skirt is one of those elastic tube waist things which was reduced to 9.99 and then 50% off.

I was feeling adventurous and tried a mini pattern-mix which I've seen on a few other blogs and I think it looks okay:

All still very mono-chromatic, but cozy.  What I would've like to have included would be some bracelets, but couldn't decide what would match, so ended up doing nothing:

What d'ya think?

  1. I *LOVE* all the gray together! Terrific outfit (except for the many hidden layers to make you warmer; just thinking about all that makes me fidgety.)

    I'm inspired by this to take one of my scarves and see if I can make a completely monochromatic outfit around it.

    1. Hi Louise! Thanks for dropping by my blog. It's nice to have visitors! You are quite right about all the layers. It wasn't so bad on top, but the layers of tights were a bit scratchy - too much compression maybe. Kept me warm though!
