Grey and Pink: Tees and Printed Jeans

Another grey tee post! In the final month of #6monthsWithoutShopping, I'm often feeling uninspired and picking something to wear and create outfits from like my grey tees or graphic tees is a good way for me to come up with outfits. Grey and pink is a colour combination I like to wear often, and both these outfits with my printed jeans show that nicely.

What I wore:

Sass & Bide playman printed jeans grey tee pink drape vest | AwayFromBlue

Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet, Rebecca Minkoff metallic mini MAC | AwayFromTheBlue
Necklace: Nibbly Bits Abacus teething necklace in pop
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
JeansSass & Bide Playman skinny jeans
ShoesWalnut Melbourne 'Ava' black lizard ballet flats (also available in silver)
Bracelets: the usual plus Roie Designs waxed leather cream howlite beaded wrap bracelet
BagRebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC (on sale, 20% off!)

Why I wore it:

Starting to get a little too chilly now for short sleeves - winter weather has arrived in Brisbane. It was a milder day when I wore this though and I didn't need any extra layers. Had a busy morning with baby boy's weekly weigh and a doctors appointment and then spent some time with my mum and sister in the afternoon.

While I have tried wearing other prints with these fun Sass & Bide printed jeans, my favourite way to wear them is with plain basics like this grey tee. The monochrome outfit felt a little dull until I added the pink vest for a bit of colour, along with the bright teething necklace.

These chevron print jeans were perfect to meet Shea's Live Your Best Life for Less style challenge prompt of 'printed bottoms' too.

Last worn: pink vest, grey v-neck tee, chevron print jeans, black ballet flats, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC bag.

BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale in pink!)

Why I wore it:

Wore this to go to my local ABA mother's group. As it was a little cooler and raining on this day, I wanted something long sleeved so had a rummage through my box of winter things. This grey tee is one I've pulled back from the donate pile before. It's got zips on either side of the hem (that you can kind of see in the second photo) but I still worried it was a little dull for winter. I'm glad I kept it around as it pairs well with other brighter colours to make winter layering easy!

The pink leopard print jeans are always fun to wear, and met Shea's Live Your Best Life for Less style challenge of 'leopard spring brights' with just one item. Even though it's winter here in Australia, I've had fun with the prompts as I can usually find something that matches to wear in the cold. It's no secret I like pink and purple together, so the purple bag seemed like a good choice, especially when worn with the teething necklace.

How You Can Wear It:

A grey tee is a great wardrobe basic, but your outfits don't have to be basic when you wear it! Try adding more interest with a pair of printed pants, or a scarf. A grey tee is a great pairing with a statement printed piece like leopard print. You can also add another layer, like the pink vest, for a little colour pop against the grey tee.

  1. I love the grey and pink combo! You've given me some inspo for the pink cardigan I'm blogging about tonight :) Those Portmans jeans are just gorgeous.

  2. Grey tops have been my lifesaver lately too - they just go with everything! And yes, pink and grey is always a good go-to combo to have in the back pocket!

  3. I like the colours you have going on here, although (for me!) t-shirts aren't really everyday clothes - as you know, I tend to dress fancier, lol!

  4. That's a great color combination Mica! My favorite is the second outfit! Those jeans and that grey top look amazing together. You rock momma chick >.<

  5. Congrats on the 6 month shopping ban, you're almost there Mica !
    Whenever I see you wear printed denim I wonder why I haven't got a pair ...

  6. I do love those Sass & Bide jeans! And the second look is so cute too! Who doesn't love a little (or a lot) of leopard

  7. I can't believe you didn't shop for 6 months, that's so long! Grey tops definitely a life-saver, they're so versatile!

  8. I lovee that color combo & the print on those skinny jeans is SO adorable! Hope you have a great week :)


  9. I love grey and pink together, such a great combo! Loving both outfits and the purple bag in the second is a great way to top it off.

  10. I love the colour combo of grey & pink! In high school I had a pair of grey & pink Etnies that I was obsessed with lol
    Both of those printed jeans are awesome too! The first pair look like they could go with heaps of looks, despite the bold print! Happy Tuesday!

  11. I can definitely see why you like the pink/grey colour combination, it is gorgeous! Personally I don't find grey clothes to be basic or boring at all, I like to opt in for grey myself as it is so versatile and very easy to wear, plus it's easy to make it more interesting with a pop of lovely colour like you did. :) Really loving the second outfit especially, the accessories make it so special! Thanks for sharing, lovely. xoxo


  12. I've always been a grey and pink fan myself! It's just such an easy combo to pull off and one I actually go to often when I'm in a hurry and nothing feels right. There are some color combos, that to me, only work in certain months. Like dusty oranges, and brick reds for fall, and bright purples and greens for Spring. However, pink and grey is such an all year color combo! (:

  13. You've really let the prints shine in both outfits by pairing them with grey. I really like the vest you added in the first outfit, too. Blush pairs so nicely with grey! They were made for each other!

  14. I like gray and pink together! I think they really compliment eachother. I love the last outfit. Those jeans are so cute!

  15. WHaaaaa??? You went 6 months without shopping? Tell me your ways!

    With Love & Style,
    ♥ Amber

  16. Loving these color combos! You look great and that's amazing that you went 6 months without shopping!


  17. I love grey and pink together!! Both pairs of jeans are so fabulous, I can't decide which I love more!

    xx, Elise

  18. Those pink leopard jeans are so fun! They were perfect for the "leopard + brights" prompt too. I love the gray/silver/blush combination in your first look too, it's so pretty with a bit of edge.
    Hope you're having a great week Mica!
