What I Wore: Illuminating and Ultimate Grey

Pantone 2021
Admittedly today's post is inspired by the promptings of Instagram friends and their challenges. It's all about the Pantone 2021 colors for spring - Ultimate Grey and Illuminating. Though I don't fixate on the latest trends, I think they are helpful in using otherwise neglected pieces in your closet.  Or maybe you're ready for a refresh and want some of the latest colors! In this case, I had a couple of neglected shirts and a few accessories to pull off this trend. 

Yellow Stripes & Dark Grey Pants

Yellow Stripes

Today's featured look combined an older yellow striped shirt with casual pants and a new necklace won off of Instagram. The gorgeous statement earrings are sadly sold out, but Luca Love has a few other styles you will love. Not to mention, a site wide 40% off sale! 

Camo Tropical Dress

This is one of my favorite dresses from XCVI. The high-low hem is flattering with raw edge details, not to mention a fabulous print. It's the perfect gray for any color pop!

Pineapples and Joggers


It might be early for pineapples but I couldn't resist pairing this top with my grey joggers. This outfit was all about comfy, but I couldn't resist the wedge shoes. Surprsingly enough, these shoes comfortably held up for my entire day!

Style Takeaway

You can shop your closet and still be on trend! Also, prepare to receive compliments from strangers when you wear bright colored shoes with bows on them!

Some Friend Time

Kelllyann, from the Style Six, was on my side of town! I sent the boys with their dad and drove out to meet her for lunch and meandering around Downtown Venice.  Though we can chat on Marco Polo, Insta, etc there's something about face to face that refreshes the soul!

  8. Just love those sandals, yellow and gray is so fun together. But most of all the fun togetherness is seeing you and Kellyann, two of my favorites! And I love that you wore pineapples!

  9. Those sandals are just adorable with the bow and yes to the light yellow! Love the light grey joggers too. Need to wear more of this combo! I have done it a couple times with brighter mustard yellow but I have one or two light tops that would pair well with some grey bottoms.

  10. I love the way you styled all of these outfits in these colors! Great ideas here. I need to pull out more of these colors from my closet. Thanks for the inspo!
