Mocha, Charcoal and Plaid



One of the looks I knew for certain I’d try this fall and winter was black with brown.  And then, the other day, my charcoal sweater ended up next to my brown skirt and I realized that I also needed to try gray with brown.  So, I did:



Specifically what I did was to pair that charcoal sweater (Tulle) with a mocha-colored midi-skirt (vintage, thrifted).  I added gray and black herringbone tights (HUE), black shooties (BC Shoes) and my plaid infinity scarf (DIY’d).

And I’m glad I tried it, because I liked it.  I think the look would have worked just as well with a black sweater, but I think the charcoal with the mocha is a little bit more unexpected.  And I think the plaid scarf was a little unexpected as well.  Well, maybe not on me as I wear this thing constantly, but in general terms of clothing combinations, I’m totally cutting edge.

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  4. So, now I know why I need the brown jeggings I've had my eye on - they're for my grey dress! You've made a great colour combination, very inspiring!

  5. I really like the charcoal and mocha together--not as "typical" as black and brown--but very very flattering!!

  6. Yes, agreed, charcoal and mocha is very good! I think the scarf is really fab as well; this whole get-up is beautifully composed.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Gracey!

  7. Now you see I would never have put those two shades together... And I would have been completely wrong, because they make a really great combination! Just shows you - what the hell do I know?! xxx

  12. Gray with mocha/nude is such a chic color combination, it's one of my favorites! (That I apparently never wear. Hmm.) I love how this look came out, the mocha skirt with your gray top is gorgeous and soft, it has a little bit or a romantic feeling to it! (That diy scarf pulls the whole look together perfectly.)
    Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

  16. This looks so pretty. The scarf makes it work. I bought a double pack of Hue tights when i saw them yesterday while shopping, based on your recommendation. Excited to wear them today. Happy Thanksgiving.

  17. This looks very, very good. I try imagining it without this wonderful scarf, but in my mind it won´t work. I guess you have really demonstrated to me the power of accessories, how they can make or break an outfit.

  18. I don't know which impresses me more: your ability to dress well or your inherent kindness. You're something special, Gracey dear. Happy Thanksgiving.

  19. Girl, I really love this outfit. The colors work so well together - so much that I wish I had a pair of jeans or something in that skirt color. Hope you have a great thanksgiving!

  20. You are totally cutting edge, Gracey. I love the plaid scarf everytime I see it, and the gray is smokin' with the browns. I think tall women are so lucky - everything looks lovely on you.

  21. Ooh, really nice. Such a great color palette -- perfect for fall and perfect for the Pacific NW! Grey is my favorite neutral.

  22. Just found your blog and I, too, am a giant and plus sized. But I've got to say you DON'T look plus sized one bit!

    Seeing all you thrifty fashionistas makes me want to participate but getting the guts is another story!

    I've added you to my RSS feed.

  24. I like all these colors together! Not sure I have anything in my closet similar but I do definitely try to break fashion stereotypes or "rules" like black and brown can't go together :)

  25. really like this look. Definitely works for me. Try it with a black sweater as well, but I think that would be too much black.

    Lovely look
