Gray is on the color palette for Fall. It felt appropriate for me to do something in gray this week since it’s been raining outside since last night. Here in Manila we are experiencing the fringe of a typhoon that is passing over the northern part of our island.

Gray Maxi Skirt

Gray Maxi Skirt

The diagonal cut of this leopard print, flowing blouse plays nicely against the straight line of the gray maxi skirt. This outfit would also look cute layered with a short denim jacket.

Kendra Scott necklaces

I paired the gray leopard blouse with two Kendra Scott necklaces: a gorgeous tasseled pendant necklace and a antiqued choker style. Her jewelry is made with such quality and attention to detail.

Gray doesn’t have to be boring. Just remember to add a few special accessories and details to hold visual interest.

Speaking of gray, how is everyone adjusting to the shorter days and cooler temperatures? I was on the road last night on the way back from airport. It felt like eight-thirty, but it was only six!

I’m still trying to decide if I really like maxi skirts. I know a lot of woman really like them because of the coverage and comfort, but I’m not 100% sold on the concept for me. What do you all think…yes or no?

    Such a great way to transition a maxi for fall! I really like how you added a flowy top, something I have never considered. It looks terrific! Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday, Shellie!

      Thanks Jennie, I just got back from your linkup and you are looking super cute in your black and red!

  2. You look great in grey – love the pretty leopard top!

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week.


  3. I like that maxi skirt on you…it might look even better with a not so flowy top? It could be that you’re on the fence because there’s a lot of material going on? jodie

  4. Laura says:

    Inlve the shades of grey and the visual interest the top provides.

  5. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I hope the typhoon does not cause too much damage and everyone is fine.

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Hi Nicole, we were fine down in Manila, but they got it much worse up north.

  6. Rachel says:

    Lovely waterfall top, perfect for layering over this skirt. Have a lovely Thursday.

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Hi Brenda, I am so glad you stopped by. I just visited your site and I love to see how you are living out your faith in a real and relevant way. That’s what I try to do here at The FABulous Journey as well. Oh yes, I love me some Kendra Scott!

    Hi Shellie, I think you look good in a maxi . I’m 5ft 5in and like you am not sure if a maxi works for me, but this outfit looks quite in proportion thanks to the length of the top. Have been watching the news about the typhoon – you could have been hit much worse I suppose. Thanks for dropping by my blog!

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      Thanks Anna, I guess I usually go for outfits that are a little more structured, but it’s also nice to mix things up from time to time. Yes, some areas of northern Philippines were badly flooded, but Manila was sparred.

  11. Rachel says:

    Loving this easy look, enjoy your time in Manila.

  12. Andrea Nine says:

    I LOVE this! Something about the beautiful black necklace with your dark hair just looks stunning, plus it looks so comfortable!! Hope your week is off to a great start beautiful lady!

    • Shellie Bowdoin says:

      That’s one thing you can always count on with maxi skirts and that’s comfort!

  13. Darcy says:

    Cute outfit! Love the necklace!

  14. patti says:

    I love this look and want to wear it the minute I get back to Florida! You look fab and thanks for linking up.
