Shades of Grey

What I'm wearing:
grey Martin + Osa Oversized V-neck sweater
black Aerie ankle zip leggings
grey/black striped Gap jacket
taupe Bensimon Lacet sneakers
leopard Martin + Osa scarf
Martin + Osa double strap headband
blue Marc by Marc Jacobs Faridah bag

It's days like these that always make me want to stock up on my leggings. I found these adorable ankle zip leggings at aerie, they are almost as amazing as the Hue skinny leggings that I'm addicted to. I promise when it stops raining that I will put some real clothes on. =) This outfit is very similar to this one I've worn before. I love this slouchy oversized sweater that allows me to wear leggings as pants.

These Bensimon sneakers were hiding in my closet! I'd completely forgotten that I'd owned them. I am just not a sneaker person, as in the only time I wear sneakers is when I'm working out (which to be honest is not that often). But I think these Lacet ones are very cute, and look casual without looking too frumpy. They do say that these are a French girl's Converses! They were super comfortable all day. In this photo you can also see the ankle zip detail on the leggings.

I decided to add a splash of color with my bag! Thought the electric blue went nicely with the otherwise grey/black/taupe color scheme. I just wasn't drawn to any color this morning! Not to mention I was in a rush and it was much easier to throw this together than to coordinate any other colors.


  1. I love your jacket! The zipper leggings are super cool.

  2. The Gap coat is awesome. When it rains I also tend to grab my blacks and greys. I love those Bensimon sneakers. I used to live in sneakers and quit them cold turkey for a bit. But a pair like those lovelies I could see for running around town.

  3. Everytime i drop by your blog i find something else I want! Those leggings look so stylish. I must go to Aerie now.

  4. Fun scarf and leggings. Are the Bensimons comfy? I need a pair of canvas sneakers and I've been holding out on getting Converse since they're everywhere. Such a pretty blue bag too! I recently sold my MBMJ Teri because I just wasn't using it--I think I like the Faridah shape better.

  5. I like the change on the blog! Looks good!


  6. e. - the Bensimons are pretty comfortable! I mean they aren't like my Nike running shoes with lots of support, but they are reasonably comfortable to wear all day.

  7. Ooh, new header and colors. Love it! Love the jacket too- very very cute!

  8. i like how u said "Frumpy" i love bensiom and i sell these.i just wish people see the beauty of bensimon
