Shades of Grey: 2 Outfits

Being a person whose moods are most definitely determined by the weather, I literally feel so much more content on the days I can look out my bedroom window and still see daylight after 5pm.. although recently, Ireland seems to be stuck at grey, cold and rainy.. hence the grey outfit to coincide with the weather. All I can say is thank god February is almost over as I'm super excited for the spring/summer months this year and all they've got to bring, not to mention the SS16 styles that I'll be seeing at Belfast Fashion Week in March! 

A pretty much all-grey outfit is something I'd never tried before.. but adding statement jewellery, a bold lip and some white heeled boots where what made this outfit that bit more comfortable for me. The jeans that I'm wearing in the image above were actually purchased from Topshop a few years back.. I have the same pair in blue/cream and I'm sure Topshop brought them out in a burgundy shade too. I remember these were super popular at the time because Zoe (Zoella) posted an image of her wearing the blue/cream ones, and all colours pretty much sold out immediately and have never re-appeared, so unfortunately they are unavailable. The grey ribbed top  however, is also from Topshop and is still available! 
I'm seeing high neck tops everywhere this season and I love their simplicity, yet you can definitely 'dress it up' with a statement piece of jewellery or a printed coat. Lastly, the little white boots were probably the best find of all time.. they were on sale for £10 in New Look shortly after Christmas. What a bargain. 

Speaking of bargains, I purchased this grey checkered cardigan/jacket (also from New Look) last year. There had been a Topshop coat I'd been eyeing up for months but I couldn't justify spending £90 (I think that was the price) for a piece that may have completely gone out of style very quickly. I tend to invest money in pieces that I know I will get a lot of wear out of, and that will still be in style for years to come.. so when I saw this much cheaper alternative in New Look (pretty sure it was around £20), it had to be mine. Even if I hadn't got much wear out of it, I definitely didn't break the bank with this one. Even better, this cardigan can double up as a dress when closed, and I decided to add a skinny brown belt to cinch it at the waist. 

Have a look through some of my favourite pieces to re-create this look. For the products which are unavailable, I've linked some similar items below.
