It’s impossible for me to stray away from neutrals. It’s the only way of dressing that makes sense to me. Yes, I can get zany (context. . .) with accessories. Right now I’m toting a purple-y mauve bag and wearing red leather gloves. I have a vast, vast, vast collection of scarves in every imaginable color and my shoes. . . I’m covered in neutrals and color, including leopards and metallics.
I’m mentioning this upfront because I know some of you would like a little more pizzazz in my tints. I’m sorry. I just can’t. Today I’ve built around gray, another of my favorite neutrals. You will note though that I’ve tossed in more color than usual.
We all know that none of us shops at only one emporium, but I’m trying to demonstrate possibilities and price points. Today I did my shopping at The Gap which is a few notches up on the budget scale.
I was surprised to discover the chain, at least on its site, did not offer shirts or blouses. I could have gone elsewhere, but you see what I’m doing here and besides I think you’ll like some of the T-shirts as much as I do.
