WE FADE TO GREY

Wednesday, 23 January 2013

COAT: NEXT  //  JUMPER: TOPSHOP  //  LONG-SLEEVED TOP: PRIMARK  //  NECKLACE: PRIMARK
JEANS: TOPSHOP  //  BOOTS: TOPSHOP


You can brand me bland all you like folks but I am a loud and proud lover of the colour grey. If you can even call it that. Whether silver or slate, charcoal or marl in my opinion grey makes a chic suitor for almost any shade and every season.

I'd been in pursuit of the perfect grey coat for what seemed like an eternity and had almost given up hope until I spied this Next boyfriend coatigan on the gorgeous Jazmine of Jazzabelle's Diary. As it was so close to sale time and with Next's being notoriously generous I decided to err on the side of caution which paid off in a major way. Bagged me this little beaut for a bargainous £35 in the end didn't I?! BOOM. 

Before the Baltic set in my new woollen wonder and I journeyed to the suburbs for a sleepover with my sluts (I mean that in the loving sense of course). Keeping it casual I opted for a layered comfy knit and basic tee combo, Topshop skinnies and a neon necklace for a cheeky pop of colour. As soon as Spring has sprung I'll be throwing my newly acquired coatigan over dainty dresses and tailored tresses galore.

Are YOU also cray for grey???

  4. gotta love abit of grey. too fond of the colour black, i do sometimes wear grey if i feel like i look too much like a tramp. i absolutely love the neon necklace too. i picked one up from H&M not long ago and i've never been able to wear it without it looking out of place, but i'm definitely going to try and wear it similar to ho you have.

    how cute is that train station platform aswell! so tiny.
