summer/fall color: driftwood, french roast and titanium

It's common knowledge to those who follow home decor and fashion blogs and magazines that gray is having a moment right now.  This most versatile neutral can adapt to any other color and style as an accent or stand on its own in a great print or texture.  Gray works for everything from workout wear to a bridesmaid's dress.  Pantone has identified Driftwood, French Roast, and Titanium as this year's most popular gray-toned neutrals.  Here are some of my favorite ways to work gray into my wardrobe as we transition from summer to fall.

Which of the following summer and autumn items are your favorite?


  1. Liking the French Roast and Titanium greys. I never used to be keen on wearing grey, but I must admit I guess I'm a fashion follower as I have bought a couple of grey tops recently.

    1. I like gray for work because it doesn't feel as formal or serious as wearing black, but still looks very put together.
