Gray Areas


Gray Cold Shoulder Cardigan: Forever 21
Blue Tank Top: Old Navy
Gray Skinny Jeans: Forever 21 Plus
Black Fringe Flats: Payless
Sunglasses: Fendi

This laidback and comfy outfit was the perfect thing to wear to a lazy Sunday spent in the South while visiting some relatives and getting a whiff of fresh air. It's also the kind of break one needs after a long week's fighting match against the flu, coughs and colds. Since the weather couldn't decide on what it wanted to be, I just did an on-again off-again thing with the cardigan whenever it started drizzling. 

Every now and then, I go on a self-instigated shopping hiatus (which I rarely see through to the end) so I can save some moolah...and shop some more. LOL! What happens is I discover a lot of old things that I’ve forgotten about or have never actually worn (Oh, the shame...). Take these gray skinny jeans for example. I bought them early this year, but conveniently hid tucked them away in the dark recesses of my closet and completely forgot about them. If not for the excavation mission I did last week because “I had nuffin' to wear,” I would've never found them there. It almost feels like I was handed free clothes!

I’m sure most of you have clothes at the bottom of your drawers or cabinets that you’ve completely forgotten about, so how about doing a bit of shopping in your own closet? It opens a whole new set of possibilities for new outfits without having to spend money!

  1. I love this outfit - especially your top. Great pattern!

    I did a 90-day shopping ban in the past and like you, I ended up finding things in my closet that I only wore once. It was actually good for me because I ended up getting creative with pieces that I thought wouldn't work any more.

    Great post, as usual :]

    1. Wow, 90 days. I don't know if I can make it that long.

  2. I'm sorry... I'm not really feeling the sandals. The cardigan and tank top are nice, and the jeans are cool, too. I like your sunglasses here as well.


  3. Exactly in the same dilemma, worst some of my "tucked clothes" outgrown me. Why is it so fun to shop? hahaha...

    Love the outfit, you rock casual look as always.


    1. Mahirap na hobby ang shopping, magastos! LOL!

  4. You're so pretty! Can I ask where did you get your template or theme? I wanna have mine too. God bless :)

  5. I need more gray in my life! I love the cardigan and the shoes.


  6. Totally love the combination! I'm a sucker for anything comfortable that I'm almost always guilty for choosing it over fashion.

    And thanks for reminding me. I left 60% of my clothes at the parents' house (too tamad to transport them to our apartment). Will go shopping there this weekend! :)

  7. What a great look! Loving the print on the top and those sandals are super cool :)
