Finding grey in the sunshine

The close up - Grey suede shoes from bstore, grey socks and navy wool trousers from uniqlo.

The British summer was something of a non entity and just as I was getting exciting about shopping for my autumnal look...the sun came out. The sun was so bright yesterday morning that it woke me up at 8:45, which is crazy early for me at the best of times, but on a Sunday...well that's just madness. It meant that I could enjoy the whole day but rather than reach for my shorts...I mean come on, it is mid September after all...so I reached for different shades of grey.

Why hello there Stevie!

Looking fly in the greys and blues. However, I have a challenge for you. Browsing your Flickr pics and thinking over your favourite outfits, I have noticed one thinking missing: colour! Other than your bright blue double breasted cardie, I rarely see you in any real amount of full-on (or even slightly muted) colour. I demand some more colourful outfits for autumn, both casual and work-wear. Consider this a challenge.

J - Thanks, I absolutely love these shoes and I almost ruined them before I even got to wear them. I wanted to wear them for the first time whilst on a weekend trip to Paris...I put them straight into a suitcase, not realising that my moisturiser had leaked...it caused a heart crushing stain. I couldn't wear them on holiday and discarded them in my shoe pile. Months later I found them again and the stain had faded. The shoes had been reborn!
enc - Thanks. I really want to play with textures and fabrics this autumn. Expect many posts on this in the coming month or so.
mat ahoy - The Uniqlo socks are great, all colours of the rainbow. I only bought the grey pair and a purple pair. I will go back for more....
