(Yet) Another Way To Style A Grey Marl Sweatshirt

Grey sweatshirt, red skinnies & brown booties
Finding ways to style a grey marl sweatshirt - or any colour sweatshirt - happens perhaps a little too often in my life when I haven't got anywhere especially important to go. They're just so easy and comfortable and have just the right degree of warmth for autumn (and spring). So if I can, I'll add a little more interest as I've done here, with the collar of my vintage shirt peeping out and a colour blocked cross body bag. Throw on some gold rings, a fabulous watch and a gold hair cuff and that's me happy enough.

The basics of this outfit (top and jeans) is identical to the one I wore earlier in the year in this post, but it goes to show how a few changes to boots, accessories and of course hairstyle make all the difference.

Are you like me and finding casual wear all-too easy at this chillier time of year? Or do you continue with the pretty dresses until your legs freeze to death and you can't take it anymore ;)

  1. I love the grey sweater teamed with the red jeans and the touch of print makes all the difference! Wonderful styling as always Catherine :)

  3. I like the whole outfit, but particuarly the red pants! I disagree to the people who say if you have red hair, you shouldn't wear red! Who makes up some of these goofy rules in the first place? --coming from another red head. :-)

  4. Sometimes grass is always greener on the other side. Seeing you wearing sweaters and coats, makes me feel like I'm missing out the autumn trends. Then, when I open my closet and see all my dresses which I'm still able to wear it any time I want, I think it's a good thing to have hot weather here. I don't know which is better =D
    I like how you match this grey sweater with a burgundy skinny jeans. Looks good on you =)

    1. I'm a hot weather girl so I'd choose warmth every time, Yen (so maybe the grass is greener)! x

  5. I know what you mean about the comfort factor in a pair of jeans and a sweater...but don't forget!! There's always tights to help warm up a dress or skirt!! ;)

    1. True, Monika - but I'm never warm enough in just tights and a skirt...!!

  6. How'd you do your hair here Catherine?! I love it!! It seems like maybe some of it was left out of the pony, no? What ever you have done with this updo, it's just perfect! I have the same pony tail holder, and I love getting a high pony out of it. I especially love how long your hair looks here!

    Love,

  11. You look great! Love the rust leggings with the burnt orange shooties. Also like the way you pulled a printed shirt under the solid crew for a little interest. The bag is adorable!
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. Stopping by from the WIWW! Love the floral collar peeking from under the grey top! And I like to wear the pretty dresses all year. First I layer on tights, then leggings, then leggings with bike shorts :)

  15. I thought to stop on by and say hi. I have seen your name and posts here and there around the internet, but this is my first time commenting. Today, I found you from the 'Passion for Fashion Friday' link up.
    As for this style, it looks very comfy, but also very stylish! I would have never thought to throw a nice shirt under a sweatshirt to dress it up. I like a good, comfy outfit, but I really don't usually like the 'comfy' look. This is a great exception!
