Style Challenge: Pearl Gray Bouclé

Shopping in Fremont, Washington with my daughter Jean was a fun Girl’s Day Out. We saw this bouclé pullover in a shop window. It can be  dressed up like the mannequin, worn over a dress.

We both bought one while I was visiting her last year in Seattle, they are soft and comfortable, and a lovely shade of pearl gray. Very versatile. Jean wore hers with a red skirt, and red and gray scarf. I wore mine over a black top for a layered look and black corduroy leggings.

For a more casual look I wear it with skinny blue jeans (this photo taken when Target closed last year).


On the weekend, I paired it with my gray skinny jeans with pink roses (bought in Munich last summer).

Our style challenge is to show various ways to wear something. This top has proven to be a very versatile one in my wardrobe. Gray being a neutral that can be paired with any colour: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, turquoise …

What is your favourite colour to wear with gray?

    Interesting styling you’re showing here. I love to combine grey with black and yellow

    WOW, both you and Jean look amazing. LOVE the pearl gray top on both of you. I can almost feel the coziness of it from you pictures. I like the way you have paired it to create so many great looks.

    That’s very sad how quickly Target came and went in Canada. I LOVE that picture of you sitting on the big red ball. The scarf you’re wearing in that picture looks like it was custom made for that outfit and I’m sure you know how much I adore/want a pair of those cute flats, although I don’t think I could rock them as well as you. I have been rocking my Shiraz colour TB Minnie flats lately. 🙂

    You look amazing as always Carmen, you are a true inspiration for how a healthy lifestyle can keep you looking youthful.

    Have a wonderful Easter weekend. 🙂

  3. It is always fun to see the two of you wearing the same item.

    I adore that photo of you perched on the red ball outside of Target.

      Thanks so much Suzanne! Jean and I happen to like some of the same things, she’s ok with it as long as we wear it at different times, besides she lives in Seattle and so it’s not like we’re going to turn up at the same event dressed alike. 😀

    The jersey is beautiful, and, two, you see very nice to him. I like all your looks (I like you) and which can not choose, I guess it’s not necessary. The last, the main, with floral pants, is very nice, and I’ve noticed your socks polka dots that pretty! My God, how beautiful you are!

      Thank you so much dear Josep-Maria! You are very observant to notice my polka dot socks, I have two pairs–gray and purple. Today I must wear warm boots again because it snowed yesterday. The weather outside my window looks more like Christmas than Easter! I took this photo today.

      Easter in Canada!

      Happy Easter!

      Thank you so much Ute!

      Weather update: since these photos (by the birch trees) were taken last weekend, it has snowed and we now have a blanket of snow on the ground that looks more like Christmas than Easter! 😦 Enough winter already, where is spring?

      Thank you dear Wendell! It has been a WHITE evening – SNOWING and freezing rain! Just when there were a few milder days here and there and it looked like spring, now it looks like winter doesn’t want to leave.

      But whether the weather be warm or cold GOD IS GOOD and so I can still smile! 🙂

      Warm hugs! Happy day!!

      ❤ carmen

    Hi Carmen,
    I love all your outfits with this beautiful and versatile grey bouclé pullover, you really know how to match it with different colors of pants (black pants and skinny jeans) and kinds of shoes(boots and flats) and in all of them you look elegant and awesome. My favorite outfit is the one where you are wearing your pullover with your blue skinny jeans and those cute black & white flats, thanks for sharing and you give good ideas how to wear my grey sweater with other colors. Have a nice day !

      Thank you so much Ivan! That’s the fun of fashion – mixing colours. I was happy to find houndstooth shoes – two of my favourite things together: houndstooth and flats! 🙂
