Grey Jersey Tweed Jacket and Grey Skinny Jeans

Grey is one of my favourite neutrals and I particularly like it when teamed with pastels. 

This is what I wore for traveling back from the university reunion at the start of the week and I think my eyes reveal the fact that I had less than three hours sleep after a 4am finish, but at least the dark circles co-ordinate with my colour pallette. 

I’ve been looking for grey skinny jeans for a long time so was delighted when I found these ones, half price in the Marks and Spencer sale last week. They are super stretchy and are perhaps more of a jegging than a jean, but suffice to say they are incredibly comfortable. I’m fond of the ankle skimming length, especially at this time of year and I find it draws the eye to the shoes more than a full length leg does. Always a bonus for shoe lover such as myself.

I think blazers like this are incredibly versatile and this one, in grey jersey herringbone takes my total to three, as I have it in both brown and navy (see it worn with jeans and brogues and with a shift dress). I don’t like the itch of wool but I love herringbone and tweed, so the jersey ones are the perfect solution. They are practical, lightweight, warm and soft and are ideal for travelling.

The matt silver heart pendant is from my own boutique, Lizzy O. It is what I would describe as a casual statement piece and the soft tones make it very easy on the eye.

The jersey blazer has beautiful coloured flecks in the herringbone design. They are subtle but add such a lot and make it seem all the more feminine.
The bee on my Danon t-bar bracelet is set with a Swarovski crystal and it too is from Lizzy O. All Danon jewellery is hand-crafted in Israel, so every piece is unique. I think the bee collection, (there is a matching necklace as well as a bangle), is perfect for spring and summer.

      Thank you so much Emma. Yes, it's always been a favourite colour combination. The brogues came with the ribbons (as well as a spare pair of ordinary laces) and I love them! xxxx
