Ready for Fall: Purple + Grey

This fall, I think I'm most excited about pairing deep plums and smoky greys to create a moody, sultry palette. Here are my picks for (almost) under $100!
Graphic Floral U-Neck Cardigan $79.50

via Martin + Osa
This one is $8.50 over $100 but I had to include because I love it like it were already my own.
Ted Baker Bow Detail Sweat Top $108.50 (here's hoping for a sale).

via asos
This slinky shift would be super easy to wear. I'd pair it with grey tights.
The Post-Punk Dress $69.99


via ModCloth

J.Crew has this color combo down.
Ruffled San Remo Cardigan $98

via J.Crew
I've been wanting a feathered headband. This bright purple would stand out against my dark hair perfectly.
PRIMA purple and guniea feather headband $22

via Feather Brain
What color combos will you be wearing this fall?

**Important! The winner of the Shabby Apple giveaway has still not gotten in touch with me (and I can't find an e-mail address!). If you're out there please contact me before tomorrow or I'm picking another winner.

Great combo - I love grey. Too bad I can't wear it! My other favorite pairing in is grey and yellow - really sharp (but not bumblebee like yellow and black).

Ginger said...

I love this color combo. Grey is very chic without being too cliche; I've been gravitating towards it and away from black for a few years now. I love grey and blue as well;)

Erin said...

I just bought some cute purple suede heels and a scarf. I can't wait to pair them with gray!

Kristen Sara said...

Oooooh... purple is my favorite color of all time... and purple and grey is a great combo. Sadly, my closet is quite small and does not plan to grown anytime soon, thanks to the student budget I am on.. but I am dreaming of olive greens and browns, rusty reds and carmels, and pinks and chocolate browns.

I'll bet you look fantastic in plum! Gray is my fave color again this season, paired with yellow, pink, any color really.

I also wanted to thank you for your sweet and thoughtful "I'm being serious so listen up" post. I somehow overlooked it until today, so I just now left a comment. You are absolutely the best, and I feel exactly the same way: I'm so thankful to have such wonderful blogger friends as you! I'm not an eloquent writer, so pretty much "ditto" on all of your beautifully written sentiments ;)

P.S. Love the J. Crew cardigan and post-punk dress!

drollgirl said...

i love the j crew number!

i kind of look HORRIBLE in gray, but it doesn't really matter. it is such a super neutral, and it can be paired with anything. hooray!

i think the fall plan includes purples, berries, browns, greens, blues, browns and blacks. some olive green, too, i think.

Callie Grayson said...

i always wear black. I have been trying to add grey and dark blue. I may try a bit of colour with them this fall.... just received the Toast catalogue and am inspired to add a bit of colour.

Nora Johnson said...

Grey is certainly one of the IN colours this Fall! I've just posted images of Kate Moss's own Topshop collection for Fall/winter 2009 & grey figures so prominently!

LOvely post!

That reminds me, I think anyone who is anyone should have a feather on their head at some point this fall. That one you picked is gorgeous. Loving all these clothing picks!

Colours I have my eye on this fall is emerald green and a classic fave of mine, navy blue. So excited for all the shopping and new treasures!

Diana said...

I have a pair of gray flats with a purple bow on them. I was debating whether to throw them away or not, but this post is making me want to keep them!

CAC muffin said...

iam totally with ya! I'm soooooooo ready for the royal purples that are amazing

heisschic said...

grey and navy

for "going out"- black and any jewel tones. rich colors, fun vs stuffy, easy enough to accent without being flamboyant.

so so so ready to layer up for fall.

Kellie said...

Well of course my favorite item is the most expensive one. Go figure. But it is perfect!

♥Aubrey said...

Ted Baker i'm sending you my thoughts...GO ON SALE...lets hope you have ESP!!! That top is gorgeous and perfect for fall.

aperfectpeach said...

Love that headband! I am headed to a wedding in a few weeks and am looking for a hair accessory - this one is adorable!

Sam said...

Oh! Cute stuff! Love the cream cardi and the bow detail top and I think you'd look a treat with that feathered fascinator!!

Delectable Swank said...

I am super excited for cooler weather too; you chose some great things I now want, especially the shift! The colors are perfect!

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

Mod Podge Amy said...

Gray has always been a favorite. I LOVE the bow. Oh dear.

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

At one time I think almost everything in my closet was gray, I love it. I don't have as much gray now as I did for a while. Purple is a great color to pair with it, lovely fall colors. I am loving that cardigan!!! xoxo

The headband! Omg, I die.

ana b. said...

For that price, I wouldn't wish to sweat in that sweat top to be honest! Hahaha. Ok. Corny. I've just been through fall and winter. And the colours I wore the most were - shamefully - black, cobalt blue, and *drum roll* grey and purple! Wohoo

Padgett Hoke said...

I am a grey-aholic. for sure. can't stop buying all things grey. maybe I shoud switch it up with some purple?!

S and O productions said...
