Grey - working well with Citrine and Teal.

Morning all, how are we all doing today?
Lets hope you're all having fun, especially if you're here in the UK - managing to dodge the rain!

Whilst shopping with my girls last week, this over fifty fashion blogger couldn't help but check out the colour matching on display in some stores, one combination in particular caught my eye and I had to do 'that blogging thing' and take a photo.  With my girls calling out "oh she's blogging again" so with getting a few stares I proceeded to take a couple of snaps.
Always on the lookout for new colour mixes I knew I had to try and emulate this interior design in a  fashion outfit.
Here's what I saw  ......
Grey, Citrine and Teal.



How great are these colours next to each other?  There's an outfit in there somewhere....
Let's set to work!
With grey as a base & the additions of teal and citrine, I think this will work.  Having already got a Citrine sleeveless blouse at home, all I now need is something grey.... now where did I put those grey trousers??

Finding the trousers in the bottom of my wardrobe I'm so glad I didn't put them in the charity bag!
Petrol blue was the other colour to find and this I did with my necklace.  Haven't got the foggiest idea where it came from, & not caring because my outfit was complete, like the final piece of a jigsaw.














How's this for a great match - Emily's sunglasses were the perfect colouring and fitted right in with my colour scheme.





So you see you can gain inspiration and ideas from your everyday surroundings, sometimes it's nice to just wander the shops awakening our inner creativity & stimulating our minds - and don't forget it's cheaper than actually buying!

Trousers old from BHS
Top from Next (similar here)
Necklace old (similar I love)
Shoes old from Deichmann (Love these)
Bag from  Jaeger (something smaller here)
Sunglasses from Emily - H & M

Photos today taken by Emily - thanks my darling. X

Have you gotten ideas from your surroundings or from store displays?  I'd love to hear from you if you have, maybe will give me some more ideas to muse over.


Until Monday, thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog.
Hope you'll be back to view my Style Steal. Who's it going to be? 
You can catch last months lucky lady here.

Bye, bye ... X

  4. Yellow and gray have always been one of my favorite combos and I will admit I mainly see it with interiors. You've nailed it-I think I have done yellow and grey stuff-may have to try it-great inspiration.

  6. These colours work really well together and really suit you Jacqui. The Pantone trends follow the same for interior as for fashion and this is a great way to pick up inspo.

  13. With the grey colour as a base, yellow and teal is a match made in heaven. It is easy to copy a look from the fashion magazine but to find an inspiration in a day to day life is what makes fashion so amazing. Great outfit, Jacqui

  16. Such a great way to get outfit inspiration! I love your yellow top, so fun and cheerful. Yellow and grey is a favourite of mine, and I just wore a similarly colourful but with turquoise accessories instead of teal! :)

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)
