Gray is the new black

I've recently been online window shopping, trying to decide what I want my mommy wardrobe to look like. I definitely don't think I'll be shopping as much at my old go-to American Eagle. The last few times I've window shopped there it's become quite obvious that it's no longer going to make up 90% of my wardrobe. Unless I want to be THAT mom who tries really hard to still dress hip and cool when in reality is a candidate for What Not to Wear. Though that could be a good way to finance my new wardrobe.....and get a trip to NYC out of it, but that's for another day. Anyways....in all my online searches I've come to the conclusion that gray is the new black this fall. It's everywhere. From tops and bottoms to dresses and skirts. Even shoes, bags and nail polish have jumped on the gray bandwagon and I'm loving it! Here's a few things I've found that maybe now that I'm working again can find their way into my closet!
Love the ruffles and the fitted band at the bottom. Keeps my shirts down so the mommy flab doesn't poke out the bottom. The things I have to think about now.....


Again with the ruffles. Very girly, I love it. This will be perfect for those cooler fall days with jeans....if I ever fit into jeans again, at least jeans with a button that is.
Ok, so this isn't gray....but it was too cute to pass up.
I'm thinking this could be the perfect way to camouflage the mommy tummy as it appears to be fitted in all the right places. With leggings and some boots I'm going to have to get the hubs to take me out on a date night!

After 3 seasons, my brown "uggs" (I'm too cheap to buy the real thing) have seen better days. I'm thinking these could be their perfect replacement.

Gray and black are too of my favorite wardrobe colors! I love gray in the fall -I am always drawn to gray sweaters! I may have to get me some gray boots too.

Oh and can I make a blog post request -I think you should post a pic of Jamie everyday :)

I LOVE gray! and I love ruffles! This fall, I'm definitely digging all the fashion out.. except for the military stuff. I like it, but I just cant seem to pull it off. That cute sweater dress is adorable! Add boots for date night adn you're definitely set! :)

It's funny just the other day I was noticing that my closet is like 80% grey when it comes to my winter clothes. I think I need more color in my life. All of those are super cute though!

In this wonderful life... said...

I've been itching for something grey!! super cute pieces.

I love the gray this year too.. in fact, I just noted to myself while browsing last weekend that everything I picked up was gray. The only thing I can't do is switch black boots for gray... maybe next year...

Kristen said...

those are some fantastic picks! I was just telling my husband that this year I want to invest in some "Uggs" (the cheap kind! Lol) and all he could do was roll his eyes at me... seriously? I'm digging them!

Gray IS the new black and thankfully pretty flattering on everyone. I love the first top and the cardigan below it. The open cardigans are going to be my thing this year, I can already tell. I like the tunic and fuggs too ;)

Kelly said...

Gray is definatly the new black! Not quite sure how I feel about it though. I like the lighter grays better. The first top is really cute. Where did you find it?

Momma Parasol said...

Thanks for the comment on my Baby Cove post! Yes, I am enjoying my symptom-free days. I never know when it will be my last! :)

I'm loving all the gray! I have a pair of browns uggs and the Uggs are worth the money. I've had mine 5 years and they still look brand new! I'm really wanting them in gray this season!

Gwen said...

I love gray!!! I swear if it wouldn't be too weird I would wear black/gray every day. LOL!!! Um...I need new fuggs soon and I want to see a photo of Jamie too!!! XOXO
