Gracey Wears: Blue and Green

For a long time, blue and green was one of those color combinations I was a bit iffy on.  Why?  Because, when I was younger, I read a book in which a girl sat her blue-wearing rival on a green couch because she knew that the green paired with the blue would look “ghastly.”  I was fairly impressionable as a child, so, for years, I thought that blue and green didn’t pair well.  As it turns out, that’s totally not a thing:

I rely pretty heavily on my outfit list. That thing REALLY helps me keep lesser-used items in rotation and make use of my whole wardrobe, so I’ve been trying to stick to it as much as possible. But today, I went off script. I really, really wanted to wear the two items I picked up in Chicago over the Thanksgiving weekend. read more
