I was Wrong, Grey was Right

Have you ever feel that you got trapped in the darkness?
Where black is the only thing that seems to be there…
and you’re too helpless to find the light to help you see the white?

What good about life is, it can put you somewhere in between…


If color can affect our mood and emotion, how do you feel when wearing your least favorite color? Do you think it would make your day gets worse?

The blue feeling comes when the cloudy grey  appears

The sky looked grey, and the sun didn’t seem to be there… It was the kind of weather that dropped my mood. My bad mood made me wished that I could just stay at home…

However, I needed to fight it and go to Yumaju Coffee Bandung. to meet a friend who I haven’t seen for almost ten years. Also, I wanted to interview at least one person for my first “Story” content on “I Wear My Mood.”

I wasn’t sure which outfit to wear. The day was already grey, I was also going to meet a special one whose favorite color is grey. Then I thought… why not challenged myself to wear grey?

I want to see what will happen when I wear my least favorite colors in my least favorite weather.

Grey is an intermediate color between black and white. It’s probably one of the reasons why I’m not a fan grey: I hate uncertain things.

I personally feel that grey seems to be a very depressing color.

I felt so cloudy and nervous to find a person to interview. I never interview a person before!

Wearing grey on a cloudy day was kind of challenging but what’s the worst thing that could happen? It’s only an outfit, right?

Today’s outfit recipe is: blending the opposite things

It’s time to learn to wear grey and maybe one of the ways is to be in between the opposite.

I decided to mix different styles for my overall look: a grey vest with a white shirt underneath which are smart casual and mix them with my washed black ripped jeans.

Too much grey’s uncertainty could kill me.

I need at least one thing which is crystal clear.

Even though I’ve decided to challenge myself, I need at least one thing to comfort me. I love to wear heels, so I decided to wear my white transparent wedges shoes.

This is one of my favorite shoes, I love the design. The wedge is made from PVC that looked like glass.

Paint more colors on a cloudy day.

Accessories are like spices.

Since my outfit looked simple and only has two color tones, I want to add varieties by wearing a gold watch and earrings. I chose to wear black and white earrings because it’s a color combination to make grey.

These hanging earrings with laser-cut details were a birthday gift from my lovely best girlfriend

I wear Karl Lagerfeld Yellow Gold Zip Double Strap Women’s Stainless Steel Watch. I love geometry and gold hardware. Many people mistakenly thought that watch was s a bracelet and that’s one of the reasons why I also love it. It has a zipper in the middle of it to divide it into two straps.

A sunny heart on a cloudy day

I was surprised by how that day turned to be. I met so many interesting people and interviewed 3 people in Yumaju Coffee. All of them have so many interesting stories and ideas to share, I’m going to write their stories soon.

Never have I ever imagined a depressing grey could turn a cloudy day into beautiful a sunny day.

That day, I didn’t wear my mood. I wear my challenge to do the uncomfortable things.

Uncertainties are scary but the surprises that come from it may certainly change your life for good. It was the day I started to like grey and uncertainties…

I love how the day turns to be. I thought it would be a depressing cloudy day but apparently, I was wrong.

There is no white when there is no black.
An opposite exists to create a definition for one another.
When you finally able to blend white and black together,
you’ll be surprised at how grey can create unlimited definitions.



Nowadays, so many people do a photo shoot and take photos of themselves in public places to make a living or just to post it on social media. I began to wonder how do they feel when doing a photoshoot?
