Shades of grey

I can never think of enough reasons to break out this sequined skirt and make it work for daytime, but in December, for a Christmas Tea at my church, I decided to wear it anyway.

I opted to go with a monochrome ensemble and adding in a somewhat chunky and very casual knit helped lend to the idea of a daytime sparkle. Plus, I knew it would be perfect for Everybody Everywear this month!

You've dressed it down really nicely - it's a great skirt and you can totally pull it off for more casual occasions I think!

I like this one a lot. The cables on your sweater are so beautiful. And you know I like sparkle any time of day. I also like how all the monochrome ties everything together so nicely... perfect outfit for tea.

And can you believe I forgot about EBEW again?

Ugh.

i'm a huge fan on monochormatic looks, that is for sure!

TrophyBoutique said...

Grey! Yay! I like how the pattern of the knit and the pattern in the sequins play together. You look grey-t.

Beautiful skirt. Love the monochrome idea specially because materials are different and that makes it very interesting.
nice outfit.

I absolutely love the monochrome look. It's so sophisticated and the sparkles are so pretty on the skirt. Great daytime look indeed!

Gray Skies said...

This is such a gorgeous combination! I can never figure out how to wear sequins during the day either, but toning them down with a sweater seems to work well.

That skirt is great! and perfect for a tea at church! It reminds me a lot of an Urban Outfitters skirt I used to have, except mine was mint green.

Sam said...

That's such a great way to dress down the sequins! It's a muted shine too, so that's easier to bring into daytime. Pretty awesome outfit!

I have not found the perfect sequin piece yet. Your skirt is simple, but elegant with the right touch of glamour. This would be the perfect outfit for a office holiday party.

Simply Beautiful!! :)
