Clever me. I'm getting used to this grey business of the Pacific Northwest. Overhead, an ongoing mosaic of cloud cover, swirling like paisley, pulsing with rain. Indoors it may be toasty, but this girl is going places- and I need to get there regardless of the weather. Tired of jeans and flats, I decided to doll up, while dressing for comfort and easy mobility. The grey day go-to: my "sweet" Carolyn by Karina Dresses.

It happens to be a dress that I wear a lot in real life, on the weekends usually, when I'm running around but still want to feel "cute." I have a certain uniform that I'll put on nearly every Saturday, and this dress essential to it. Let me confess- I liked the cut and print of this dress so much, I actually own two. Yup. Two of the exact same. Ya know, so one dress is always clean when I want to wear it.

Don't think I'm leaving out the grey wool coat- this coat is a TREASURE. A gorgeous, perfect condition 1950's nubby grey tweed pillar coat- it has a silver lining- or at least a shimmery satin grey one, and I love this coat so much! At the time that I bought it, it was a bit of an investment, but years later, worth its weight in gold. Silver linings indeed. That's also how I feel about my collection of Karina Dresses. Whenever I want cute, chic and EASY, I grab for my Karina. You can too- the Fall/Winter 2012 collection can be shopped online by clicking HERE.

So grey matters. To combat the blahs of a winter grey day, I used texture and pattern play to spice things up in this fairly simple look. Dress. Pullover. Socks + Shoes. Coat. The look is comfortable and cute with my signature quirk. The Karina Dress is a dress every wearer makes their own. Smart, huh?
