Living in Greyscale

February 3, 2012

As usual, I’m sporting my color scheme–black, grey, white & some shade of blue. My full look is not completely in grey scale, but you get the idea–I love grey.

I wore this look to the Coach & Details launch of the Hugo Guinness x Coach collaboration. That same day, I picked up the new GQ and thumbed through the pages. In the style section, it endorsed wearing a patterned shirt with a patterned tie. I look down to see that I am doing exactly what they recommend! I wore a herringbone shirt with a polka dotted tie.

I was never a fan of mixing prints because I thought it was a little much, but as I always mention, I’m trying to break out of my normal style and integrate new ways to add a little more to change it up.

My new pair of glasses come courtesy of Eyefly! It’s from their new line. The previous line focused more on the classics but now, the new line gives a little punch of flavor and color in the frames. I’m obsessed with these matte grey frames. But, I’ll wait until the full post about my love to divulge further! Stay tuned!

How could I not sport my new tote courtesy of Coach? The Hugo Guinness x Coach reversible tote speaks to my addiction–NYC and coffee. It’s honestly the perfect tote for my adventures. It’s big enough to carry my essentials, stylish enough to work with my outfits and unique enough that I stand out. Can you say perfection?

    I am confused if you are carrying a tote bag why are you pockets so stuffed full of stuff?

    love that tote bag! I’ve seen one with the shades (?) around but the coffee cup and handcuffs are more popular.
