Gray on Gray with Citron

Hello lovelies,
After yesterday's mediocre outfit teaming gray levis with my green jacket, I have decided to try these new gray straightleg demi-curve levi's with my trusty gray faux leather bomber jacket per some of the suggestions. The rest of the outfit is gray and cream striped LLBEAN boatneck, taupe shooties, citron AT scarf and poppy red topper. Hopefully this outfit will have a little more oomph!

Opinions welcome!

    LOTS of oomph! Love the poppy/gray/citron combo, Meredith.

    Wow - I love the scarf with your coat! It is so exciting to see you doing colour and it really brings your lovely smile to light. I also like you in the greys, of course! Sort of nice to have an outer and an inner personality, if you will!

    Thanks for liking the combo together! The poppy and citron sort of add a jolt of color on this warm but somewhat rainy and dark Boise day!

    I DO love my grays (goes with and enhances the hair) but I am seeing so many beautiful colors in scarves out there that I find I can't resist! I think I am getting addicted to scarves the way some people get addicted to shoes and handbags!

    WOW, 4-5 are amazing! That gray is the perfect base for brights.

    I like the way your photos show how your outfit gets layered. We get to see how the outfit goes from nice to wow. The pop of color makes all the difference. And what a nice addiction scarves are - much more economical than shoes or handbags, and people see them right away when they see your face! Enjoy your colorful outfit.

    This is beyond fantastic Meredith! I love the neutral background with the POW of the citron and red coat. Fabulous layering and great colour combination.

  • christieanne replied 8 years ago

    Love the gray as base for citron. It totally pops.

    Do you wear your scarves all day at work? I love mine too but sometimes they get in my way.

  • Emily replied 8 years ago

    You look wonderful in grey! I especially love the citron scarf over the grey jacket.

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks ladies for approving the color choice! I like it much better than yesterday's outfit.
    I think I like gray as much as black now and I think I am going to like it even better with the warmer weather since it is a lighter color than black.
    I actually choose the progression of photos so that you can see the way I am putting the outfits together. It is also helpful for me when remember what I like together. Scarves have become an absolute necessity for me. It's almost the the exclusive way I work color and/or pattern into my predominantly neutral wardrboe. Plus they do store more easily and I don't have to worry about weight loss/gain. They are becoming a signature for me I guess!
    Thanks for liking the color AND the layering. I love the citron with the red and I also like it with the gray.
    Normally I do wear the scarf all day, but just in case it is too warm inside (a rarity) I have the necklace underneath to at least add some touch of funk!
    Thanks for liking the gray and the citron together and also for liking me in gray in general. I think a lot of people shy away from gray but I find it flattering a refreshing change from black.

    Love the boost of citron/red and that grey outfit is the perfect base.

  • ManidipaM replied 8 years ago

    Gray is *golden* on you, Meredith! Adding citron *and* red to that is absolutely hitting it out of the park. ADORE this outfit SO much I'm a little in awe of it! But I also think I want to pin it!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks for enjoying the color combo! Gray does work surprisely well in the mix. I think even better than black would.
    Thanks to you also for liking the outfit! If it makes you want to "pin" it I count that as high praise. I have been pinning some of the outfits on the forum also. There are so many that I love and admire but there are some that I have me thinking..."Now THAT I could wear!".

    Love the look in #5. The citron and red are amazing together.

  • Victoria replied 8 years ago

    that citron scarf is awesome! It looks fantastic with grey and red-great outfit

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Kiwi Nicole,
    I also love the citron and red together more than I originally expected. I also love the read with my cobalt blue scarf.
    Thanks for liking the color combo! The gray does seem to work well as a base for the brighter citron and red!

  • jayne replied 8 years ago

    Oh I love grey too. If it is a true bluish grey and not a sneaky beige! And your pop of color is fantastic. I think you have progressed alot since Jan!

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    Ooh. Seriously awesome!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks! I think I am making progress also.
    Thanks for stopping by and approving!

  • Sarah A replied 8 years ago

    yes, I too vote for the citron with the gray! Excellent combo... Scarves are my prefered pop too... Economical and easy to store make them tops on my list! Glad I am not the only one who thinks this way...

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    @Sarah A
    You bet I love those scarves too! I have a tiny wardrobe without them! I discovered a love for them as accessories when I went to France this last summer with just a duffle tote that stowed in the overhead bins. Scarves helped me not be incredibly bored with wearing the same things constantly! OT....I checked back in on your chevron outfit and definitely LOVE the pic #7!

  • Kirti replied 8 years ago

    Totally awesome! You are really coming up with some beautiful combos :)

  • teri replied 8 years ago

    grey and citron are a great combo. Fab coat... color and fit

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks a lot! I love your color combos!
    I am so glad you like the outfit and the coat! I am loving that coat. I have never owned a really bright one before....well....I have a bright green hip length rain slicker but that is all.
