Monochromatic: Grey or Gray?

Have you guys ever tried out the monochromatic look, intentionally or not? I’m linking up with my girlfriend Becky over at Mommy in Heels for the What She Wears link-up and this month they chose to have everyone style a monochromatic look. For some reason I had the hardest time putting this look together. I initially came out wearing all blush pink to which my husband remarked, “that’s a lot of pink”. Since I was already questioning the outfit in the first place, I took that as my cue to head back to my closet. It turns out that grey is a very popular color in my wardrobe (which I think I already knew), but I don’t typically wear it paired together because it can feel a bit too dull.  In the end, I ended up trying out two different grey outfits. I’m not sure I would have put either of them together had it not been for this link-up, but I appreciate being pushed out of my comfort zone every now and then.  Have a look and let me know which outfit you like the best, #1 or #2?

So what do you think? Have you ever or would you ever try a monochromatic look? I’m certainly going to keep it in mind moving forward!
