Grey and Green Together - Yes It Works.

Morning my friends.
How are you all?
What a super weekend I've had, well it started on Friday.
My son finally got to marry his sweetheart in an intimate gathering of 15.  Fifteen not by choice, but  due to Covid, we made the best of the day and literally had an amazing time.  I will be posting all about it soon, so do stop back to see it.
As you can imagine Saturday and Sunday have been very slow.  I had breakfast at the venue on Saturday morning and came home to relax and replay the previous day in my head.  It was truly a magical occasion with everything perfect, or as perfect as it could have been considering the circumstances.
So before I run away with my dreaming let me tell you about my latest look for my grey trousers.  A favourite for this time of the year.  I'm after a pair in seasonal tan as I've so much to go with them - I have just found and bagged these from New Look - so will see what they are like.

Grey and green are a lovely combination - one that's new to me.  I bought this little lace top, in forest green just over a couple of years ago.  Literally worn once and as that was a sad occasion for my MIL's funeral I just can't bring myself to wear it again. 😢 I just wanted to show you how well the shades go together - then this one will be relegated to the charity pile for sure.
Lace always add's texture to a look & this high neck style looks great.  It has a snug little cami to wear under it with a button fastening at the back.
Now it's a tad cooler I have a long line jacket to pop over the top and my denim jacket would look cool too. 

All that's left is to tell you about my accessories.  The long beads have all the colours of my ensemble in them adding a bit of sparkle too.  I picked my oh so comfortable Vionic courts - that have a flattering kitten heel, so along with the snakeskin print what's not to love about the whole look!

So I reckon my little flirt with green and grey have worked a treat.  It'll be one I'll be trying again.  I will also keep you posted about my tan trousers, if they look okay rest assured I'll be showing them off soon!

Here's another couple of other colourways for these grey trousers - with a paisley blouse & paired with pale pink. 💕

  1. Oh I can relate to that. I can't wear clothes either that I've worn to a funeral of a loved one. I'm glad the wedding was a good day! And the New Look trousers look very chique, buy them!

    1. Thanks Nancy, it's a funny thing to do but I'm sure lots of people feel the same. I have bought the New Look trousers and can't wait to see what they look like. x

  2. What I like about this outfit Jacqui is that the trousers are flared. I do love a flared trouser! I look forward to hearing more about the wedding xx

    1. Yes quite flattering I think, I still like straight legs and skinny's but not sure if they really like me! Yes It's a work in progress. x

  3. I really do love the combination of the green and gray together and I love the pop of snakeskin from your shoes! You're looking great!

    1. You are too kind, thank you so much. Really like wearing these shoes. x

  4. I loved seeing the wedding photos on your Instagram, Jacqui. You look beautiful in this dark shade of forest green and the classic gray trousers. Love the long beaded necklace. =)

  7. You are absolutely brilliant with your color combinations. I look forward to seeing your unique, and beautiful outfits!

  8. I’m so glad to hear that everyone had an amazing time in spite of the a Covid restrictions. I don’t blame you for wanting to give away that green top, even though it looks so pretty on you. I’d likely do the same.


  9. Love this look and the colours are perfect together. Beautiful accessories too. Congratulations to your son. Have a wonderful day darling Cris

  10. Wow, such an elegant combination!

  11. it's the shame this top has such sad associations for you as it is a nice top and lovely colour on you - it does work so well with the grey :)

    Hope that you had a good weekend! :) Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup!
