Mixing shades of grey and dark gold + link up

Mixing shades of grey and dark gold, grey Guray jacket, See by Chloe metallic skirt, ochre chenille cap

You all know how much I love a charity shop bargain..well today’s post features two! I went looking for a tartan mini skirt (no luck so far) but instead I came away with this grey cropped jacket and chenille baker boy cap. I also picked up a brown velvet jacket, whcih I’ll show you in another post.

Mixing shades of grey and dark gold creates a contrast of cool and warm, a bit like wearing silver and gold jewellery together.

The jacket is from Guray – a brand I hadn’t heard of before, so I have no idea how much it might have cost new. But that doesn’t really matter; it’s good quality and I love the style, so that’s good enough for me! I was going to try it with some grey trousers, but I couldn’t find them (not surprising given the chaos inside my wardrobe).

So once again I dived into the wardrobe in the spare room and pulled out this dark gold See by Chloe pencil skirt. I’ve had it for years, but it still had the tags on, as did the grey shoes (or are they boots?). Mixing shades of grey and dark gold creates a contrast of cool and warm, a bit like wearing silver and gold jewellery together.

Wearing tights and shoes in the same colour makes the legs look longer, it’s a favourite trick of mine.

As with most double breasted jackets, it’s a little snug on the bust, which is fine with a thin top or sweater underneath. I tried it open at the top but I prefer it with all buttons done up. I think it looks neater and more stylish this way. In the warmer months I’ll wear this jacket and skirt with bare legs and gold shoes, minus the hat. Wearing tights and shoes in the same colour makes the legs look longer, it’s a favourite trick of mine. The velvet bag – a recent sale bargain – finished off the look.

Jess of Elegantly Dressed and Stylish recently wore a stunning mustard and grey outfit…I think I took a little inspo from it. I could definitely see Jess in this outfit!

Do you like this colour combination? Although this skirt is years old I’ve found it listed on Poshmark and Vestiaire 🙂

    Such a fabulous find! The buttons and sleeve detail are wonderful. I like this color mix and the bit of sparkle in your skirt!

    I love it when you find fabulous items like this at a fraction of the price. I bet the jacket was expensive at some point because you can see the quality, Emma. As for that skirt, well, I will swap at the drop of a hat! xx

    That’s a super outfit, and I rather like this colour combination. Might have to try this out in a ‘steal’ but will have to work on the pieces as nothing comes to mind straight away. Thanks for hosting the #linkup Emma. x Jacqui Mummabstylish

    I’m into the gray and gold together—I don’t own a lot of gold things, but think I might try it with mustard yellow! Thanks for the idea!
