Style Files // Navy Blue and Earl Grey

Grey and blue is a colour combination that I used to wear growing up, somewhere between my need to wear all black phase. Even now, I still love to wear variations of grey, and shades of blue together. I think it’s a quite soothing blend of hues, especially when combining light to dark shades of both colours. But, it’s also a cool colour palette that can be worn as casual or as elegant as you want it to be.

I decided to play with volume and pattern with this look, adding a heart printed scarf that I recently bought and have been wearing a lot the past month or so. The day was cold, and a much bundled up way to dress was necessary, so I dug out my leather boots and tights to wear with this outfit heading to a work conference.


This is just a quick hello to wish you a happy weekend, and thanks so much for your wonderful comments! I am off to work a bit over the weekend, and then try to officially start my holiday shopping. I actually started a little bit ago, but it was a browsing session, or rather a time to mentally take note of what I liked. I was essentially too tired to carry anything, and decided to peruse options for later purchases.

Have you started holiday baking, travel arrangements, or decorating yet?
The goods: Silver mesh and metal band necklace, Tartan flannel skirt, and Stud geo-bracelet- c/o Oasap. Grey v-neck-La Redoute, Printed scarf-H&M, Earrings-c/o Oasap, Leather boots-Sardini Italy, Tights- Newsboy Cap-Goorin Bros.

  1. Hi Madison, you simply look fab in grey and blue, a color matching that I really like too. The skirt is too nice, that kind of tartan is more rare and more beautiful, this is for sure one of my fav outfit from you! Ive started to decorate and eat Xmas treats :P Though not to shop yet! Enjoy the weekend dear! xo
