It’s that time of year again! The kids are back in school, the weather is getting a little bit cooler and I’m thinking of grey clothes. Yes, I have barely worn a stitch of grey over the past few months and I’m starting to get itchy to pull out some of my Fall grey favourites.
With the kids being out of school for the past two months, I didn’t have a lot of time to hit the shops. But I managed a night away in the States with my husband and a girls’ trip to Whistler. During these short trips, I was perusing the new Fall fashions every chance I got. And what did I see? Shades of grey – everywhere!
Of course, I couldn’t resist taking a few photos to show you this neutral that has had serious staying power for the past few years.
Grey for Fall, or Fall for Grey? Either way, I can’t wait to start wearing grey again!
I had an hour at the mall the other day and since I had not been in to Banana Republic in quite a long time, I decided to see what they had. Well, wasn’t I pleasantly surprised to find a bunch of things to try on.
If you are thinking you are seeing shades of grey, you are correct! I have to admit, I couldn’t help myself. All of these tops were crying out for me to try them on. Unfortunately, only one of them made it home. Which one?
Well, this one looked better on the hanger than it did on me. I loved this sweater, but it was too heavy and warm and I knew I would never wear it. Lastly, the top on the far right didn’t fit me quite right.
So this one was the winner. The zippers made it fun and it fit really well, too.
Surprisingly, it’s the first grey top I have bought in a while. I’ve been perusing the flyers and reading the style notes in the magazines, and it looks like grey isn’t going anywhere for a while. So, I might as well embrace it. Are you?
I have to admit that lately Old Navy is surprising me. Everytime I go in there (which is often), I find cute tshirts, well fitting shorts and reasonably priced summer dresses, not to mention the great clothes for kids.
But this time, I think they know me, I mean really know me. This email from Old Navy arrived in my in box last week:
and then a few days later, this one arrived:
Hello ? If this isn’t a sign that I need a pair of grey jeans, then I don’t know what is. I guess I had better go shopping because apparently, there is a shade of grey for everyone 🙂
