The Pink and the Gray

Wearing Charlotte Russe sweater, Kohl's top, Gap jeans, thrifted heels

Stop laughing at my posing. Fashion blogging is Very Serious Business.

This was me implementing Merrick's patented formula.

1. Color: I looove gray and pink right now. Check!
2. Texture: Silky blouse with floofy chest bow. Check!
3. Pattern: Take a gander at that floral. Check!
4. Shine: Bejeweled cardigan AND shiny shoes. DOUBLE check. And, bonus, I remembered my wedding ring today.

I was looking through my closet and realized there is a serious pattern void going on. Sure, I've got some stripes but it's mostly boring solids. I need to work on that.

Thanks for all your lovely feedback on my blog makeover! I've had a handful of questions and comments...would a series on (very) basic DIY Blog Design be helpful? I'm no Kimmie, but I can pull together a header and tweak a little HTML when called upon.


  1. You just described my closet. All solids, no patterns. When I decided to care about clothes a few months ago, I realized that void. Ever so slowly I'm adding patterns, but I got a serious stripe addiction, and I just don't have enough stripes!

    Love the poses, you hot mama you!

  2. In deed that top is so pretty and beautiful! Love that it's a little oversized for comfort! Cute poses!

  3. I like the poses! Haha. Also, I love the shirt w/ cardi combo.

  4. I feel the same about the blank top and the stripes. We need more patterns in our lives :)

  5. Love it. And your new blog design looks awesome!

  6. Pink and grey are a perfect combination!

  7. Wowza, Kayla! The third pic is sexy sexy ;)

    Anyway, I love this look, and I'm totally on the same boat as you on patterns. My closet is full of solids and I'm slowing trying to find more florals and patterened clothes to add in. I'm kind of obsessed with floral right now, but I'm so particular about it, which is why I haven't bought more.

    And I loved Merrick's formula. Must write it out so I can remember it every morning!

  8. Count me in for the crash course on blog design, I need help in a serious way!

  9. I'm right there with you on the pattern void. That's something I would like to work on. I would love to read a few blog design tips.

  10. I love that detail on that cardigan! I would have never guessed you got it at Charlotte Rousse.

  11. I wish I still lived near you so I could borrow your clothes.

  12. I absolutely love that floral top! Is it from this year or is it older?


Thanks for your comment!
