A Gray Day


It’s cold and rainy today. I am tucked inside working and have no meetings on my calendar, yay! Days like this, it’s tempting to stay in my PJs. Instead, I adopt an errand-appropriate outfit that’s really a half-step above sleepwear. Jeans, sneakers, and a cozy grey sweatshirt. A grey sweatshirt is the perfect, bad weather, run-around (or stay-at-home) topper.

J.Crew, Saint Laurent, R13

  • I swear I’ve been transported back to November, cold, grey, rainy. And still no further in my quest for a comfy grey not quite sweatshirt. Tried on the Crew one a while ago but didn’t love. Will have to give it another look.

  • There’s nothing better than a gray sweatshirt! Especially with white jeans. I have a fantastic one from J Brand with open sides that I wear a lot…so easy layered over a tee or collared shirt. Well, while you get to wear yours this week, we are having a heat wave here in so Cal…pulling out the summer gear to stay cool!

  • Funny! Just yesterday I had to talk myself out of buying yet another grey sweatshirt. It was a pretty great cut – and at Club Monaco no less:). Seems to be all I wear lately with this cool weather still hanging around .

  • First 90 degree day here. Pulled out a linen tee shirt to wear. Would love a cold grey day.

  • How can you not love the perfect grey sweatshirt? Seeing your post reminds me of the first time I saw an article about you in Bazaar and you talked about your blog. I also remember your mention of your love of camel, grey and white. That’s when I bookmarked your blog 🙂
