is grey your frenemy?



Thank you on Nao's behalf for your lovely lovely comments yesterday - she's so happy. Just stumbled on these shots - hadn't even seen them before - that I took @ Aminaka Wilmont's show. I was so focussed on their gorgeous blue prints I'd totally forgot they did grey shearling (this was before Burberry btw).




Yesterday had a yummy Cupcake Convention with the most lovely blog friends (& a model) - more about that later, I'll post on it you can be sure. I bring it up because we were talking about 'frenemies' and later I mentioned that I had a love-hate relationship with grey. Grey is my frenemy. But in this case, I must say, I love it.

We're off to Borough Market with a friend from NY. The best way to spend a rainy Saturday in London! xoxo

My friend for sure

my relationship w/ gray (grey on your side of the pond) is all "friend", no "enemy". gray/grey in any shade makes me happy- these photos do, too! :)

Gray is fine for others but I never, EVER wear it myself because it makes ME look gray as well.

Grey is my friend. Not as close to me as black and white, but definitely in my crowd, along with camel and navy. Black, of course is the head honcho of that crowd but grey gets along with all of them, even camel.

I love grey! I've worn it forever and as a girl Mom used to tell me I needed more color...so I added black! Nice work Mom!

I love the layers in the pics by the way...

I totally have a love relationship with grey. It's probably a bit unhealthy!

Ooh I love going to Borough Market on the weekend - best foodie place in the world!

I hope the weather clears in London because here in Massachusetts we are having the most AMAZING weather we have seen since two summers ago. This is considering last summer it rained ALL summer long. Funny you mention having a love hate relationship with grey because ever since you posted about loving grey last summer and how it was becoming a popular trend...I began to appreciate the color. Thank you for opening my eyes to such a beautiful/blah color. Honestly, I say "blah" because I have never considered grey to be a color with life in it. It's just "blah." I actually consider it to be almost lie white and I like it because it is a color that goes with everything! I love these shots. Check out my street style pictures on my blog and let me know what you think of them!

Hahaha! Grey is my best friend, along with black. And this grey outfit is superb. I love it.

One of my best friends!

Seriously, I love gray. It rivals black and goes with everything.

How are things, Jill?
