The Grey Shift Dress

At the end of summer, as we transition into fall, you'll be seeing a lot of grey's and neutrals going down the runways. What's great about grey tones is that they can be spiced up with bright accents, and can also be calmed down by keeping within a neutral palette. That's what makes grey such a great base color for work wear!

My outfit for today was inspired by a photo of Cat Deeley in a grey shift dress with a cinched center. Her dress has a bit of shimmer in the fabric which looks great outdoors-- totally glimmers from the sun! I like how she chose a nude shoe to elongate her legs-- it also allows all attention to be on her dress!

My dress doesn't have any shimmer to it, but it has a great cut out detail on the top in a really pretty dark purple. I tied a grey ribbon around the waist to mimic the cinched look in Cat's dress, and threw on my favorite nude sandals to complete the look. I think this is a great outfit for the first week of Fall!
