This week has me smiling for several reasons…one being this burgundy, leather skirt. I’ve been on the hunt for a leather pencil for sometime now and after spotting the deep red undertones I was smitten. If you’ve yet to hear, burgundy is this season’s new black, along with oxford reds, rusk, and deep purples. As you can see I was slightly indecisiveness deciding how to finish the look… the camera man was lovely and tireless. Special thanks to my friends at Jewelry Nut for this chunky, knit scarf. I don’t think I’ve taken it off since its arrival at my door. Hop over to their page Thursday night to order this scarf. Unfortunately, this dotted sweater is no longer available at Old Navy, however, I found a few other options here, here, here, here, and here.
On another note, I’ve been on this journey for 6 months now and am excited to announce that Happily Grey will be getting a makeover! Looking forward to hopefully previewing the new site very, very soon! I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed sharing my inspiration with you. Thank you, thank you for all the support and feedback… so appreciative!
PS- I’ve finally started to consistently use Instagram …its mainly photos of my miniature pony pup but I’m attempting to get better!

I’ve been dying to share my latest discovery/obsession/maybe your new obsession! Meet designer Joy Gryson and her new fall/winter collection IIIBeCa. I first spotted the “Duane” bag a few days ago and wanted to know more! The crossbody’s modern and chic design has a very simple structure and crisp detailing…not to mention the very smooth leather and little gold hardware. The bag sports a simple snap through closure and the interior is finished with a snap in lining that can be taken out as a handy drawstring pouch. As if the aesthetics haven’t sold you yet, hear is the best part of all! Joy Gryson is sending 3% of all proceeds to three different non-profit, New York based charities, including, the 9/11 Memorial (Joy and her husband were both downtown that day), Family Focus Adoption Services (Joy’s mother is one of the founders of this agency), and Memorial Sloan Kettering (Joy’s mother in-law was treated for cancer at this institution). Such a great bag for a really good cause!

NO SURPRISE I’M ONCE again wearing an aztec print. Tribals make such an impression with the bold contrast of color and organized print. This cardigan is incredibly comfortable with the super soft cotton and oversized cow neck. I thought I was set with the denim, until I randomly threw it on with my long pleats and V-neck and couldn’t be any happier. Per the husband…”the denim is more everyday, functional.” That statement definitely required a “huh?” …never dreamed I’d hear him say anything of that nature! haha I have to say, the guy is pretty special. Lucky me!
PS- Many exciting updates ahead that I’m looking forward to sharing with you guys! I can’t say thanks enough for all the kind comments, emails, and support! I love, love, love sharing my inspiration with you!

GEOMETRIC SHAPES ARRANGED in nonspecific patterns never fails to catch my eye! I spotted this tribal mini at Urban, along with several other Aztec printed dresses and cardigans. I specifically love this black and white contrast, as it allows you to add fun pops of color through accessories and layers. Besides the great tribal print, the oversized, flare fit made it even more appealing. I am looking forward to wearing it as it gets colder with long sleeves and leggings!

TODAY LUKE AND I visited the Parthenon, a full scale replica of the original ancient structure built within Centennial Park. The architectural design of the pillars and wall art is breath taking. The weather was a beautiful 75 with a nice breeze…I love this time of year! I really am starting to think these wide legs might become my sleep pants too…super comfortable and lightweight make them even more ideal. As you can see, I’m still very obsessed with the CV clutch. It’s absolutely the perfect size, super soft leather, and the color is insane (other favorites here, here, and here)! I’m also a huge fan of the chain linked bracelet I’m wearing from Jewelry Nut Auction. It’s such a great piece to layer with. Jewelry Nut Auction is every Monday & Thursday night on Facebook. Visit their facebook page or website for more details). You will love it! Hope you are having a wonderful week!!

THE BEST PART ABOUT a new city is the adventure of exploring new places and meeting new people. This past Thursday was Fashion Night Out’s 4th year to celebrate a nation wide after hour shopping extravaganza, included festivities ranging from fashion shows, parties, personal styling, and sales. My FNO night started in small town outside of Nashville called Franklin where I spent the majority of my night roaming around the small, quaint square and discovering several great boutiques. My favorite shop, Emmaline, was celebrating the unveiling of their grand reopening after recently relocating. Besides having some of the best picked designer pieces, I completely fell in love with the aesthetic layout and presentation. Thankfully I had my camera and was able to snap a few photos. Needless to say, I had a great night meeting new people, discovering new places, and capturing images of the sweet Emmaline and Franklin Square!

Shimmering sequins seems like an appropriate alternative to my non-descripted casual skinnies. It definitely caught the eye this past weekend while visiting Opry Mills for the very first time. I’ve been begging for an opportunity to wear my new readers out and this denim vest seemed to be a nice match. Spotted this clutch a few weeks ago on clearance at JCREW and fell hard for the flashy color. There are limited colors online, however you might find more in stores. Hope you all are enjoying your long weekend! Have a wonderful Labor Day!
