After a quick  assessment of the rainbow-ness of my wardrobe, I realized that my rainbow meter is VERY LOW. What, Laura, in your insanity, do you mean by 'rainbowness?' Rainbow-ness is the variety of color in one's closet. Since I now TRY my hardest to keep my clothes is colorifical order, a quick glance at it tells me that I need to add brighter hues or else I'll be "forever grey", which is like being "forever alone" but in grey scale.

  4. Is it weird that this makes me to do everything in grey scale from this point onward? Seriously, I love it!

  5. I love this outfit! I used to try to keep my closet in colorifical order, but then I got lazy (and after that I moved home and have no closet - boo!) It really does help you realize when you are lacking in a certain color, though. If I had to pick one, I would say I don't have many blues.

  11. Look - I like ...no, LOVE your outfits. Someone's gotta spread the love around with the black/grey colors. I know you'll rock colors just as well because you're too talented not to but never fear about what you have. Everything I've seen of your OOTD posts are beautiful! And I am looooving the sheer cardi.

  12. I do like a bit of grey - i've noticed its a colour that swamps my nail varnish collection. But I agree, colour is good yet my wardrobe lacks lots of it!

  15. Cute outfit! Love how you added color with the belt. Hahaha, I have the opposite problem you know? I have too much color in my closet. In fact, I think I own maybe one or two grey tops and that's it. Lol.

  20. Well, I think you look fantastic in grey!

    A lot of my wardrobe consists of black and grey things, so I definitely know what you mean though.

  23. masculine colors, but feminine in style. love the sheer flowiness of the cardi. i felt like this last year, that i needed more colors, and while i did add color, they seem to be all the same....pinks! must expand my spectrum!

  28. The rainbow-ness may be low for this outfit, but it is still definitely cute. I'm just breaking out of my forever gray and black and brown ...and getting into other "colors"..so I know what you mean :)

  29. By the looks of my closet, one might think I'm rainbow brite...hehe...so I could definitely use more grey in my world...sounds weird right, but true! I think grey is an underrated color and my goodness it looks absolutely divine on you! I just love everything about that cardi and the little pop of teal you added with the belt. You are always spot on Laura! Happy Monday! xx Marisa

  32. Ooooooo, love that pop of turquoise!! Looks really good with the dark colours :)

  33. your grey outfit is not "grey" at all i think it looks sassy and stylish especially with the flowy cardi and hat. Wearing a skirt as a dress stretches your dollar too :-) i don't really have a lot of colors too.

  40. here you go with another killer tough-chic look. love it! your teal belt adds just the right amount of color. grey isn't so bad, though. i think it takes a lot of unnecessary flack.
