WIW: gray days

A couple of gray-based outfits, worn on a couple of typical gray December days. It sounds more dreary than it feels. I don't mind gray days, when they are relatively mild. And these outfits felt fine.

The outfits:
1-3 (worn to work): wine silk blouse (Eileen Fisher); charcoal ponte boot-leg trousers (NYDJ); charcoal metallic tweed collarless jacket with zipper and ribbon trim (made by me); black suede booties (Paul Green, Barbie); charcoal cocoon coat (Lodenfrey); black satchel (Elliott Lucca, Olvera).

4-6 (worn for a day off): purple and gray striped cashmere sweater (Philosophy Dane Lewis); gray dot infinity scarf (gift from DH); dark wash straight leg jeans (Lucky, Sweet Jean); taupe nubuck booties (Paul Green, Jano); green trench coat (Gallery); black satchel as above.

Thanks for looking! I welcome your suggestions and thoughts.

    These are gorgeous. I really like how the lines of the blouse and jacket complement each other in the first outfit, especially as seen from the back. I think these are two of my favorite outfits.

    I like the dark red with coordinating lipstick a lot on you. The jacket you made is gorgeous and I also love that cocoon coat (you're lucky to have the height for it!)

    Love the cocoon coat and the purple and green look splendid on you.

    That jacket never fails to impress me -- such beautiful detailing. And the coat is stunning on you! Wow.
