Grey is a colour that I previously wore often (a suitably serious colour for working in professional services) but don't think it does me any favours. The outfit formula made me wonder if I should give grey another try, using items that I have in my closet.

I have this lovely cashmere double faced jacket. I purchased it many years ago and before my time on YLF on sale and was wowed by the quality. I could wear it inside out and you would not know, because all the seams are perfectly executed and hidden. It is a beautiful piece BUT

  1. it is grey and
  2. it is oversized and perhaps too big on me.

It has been sitting in the holding zone of my closet. I decided to attempt a light neutral column, but being me, needed to add some colour into the mix, with my sneakers and the pearls add a light and pretty element to the masculine style jacket.

I would be interested to know if you think I should rehome my jacket, or wear it casually (like I did today, working from home). I can see me using this jacket instead of buying a trendy shacket. DH liked my outfit, especially the hoodie and jacket combination.

The sneakers are my wildcard purchase. They are super comfy and flat and somehow crazy at the same time. I love them and have been wearing them often since buying them 2 weeks ago.

My weather has been all over the place, hence the winter, spring and summer outfits shown here!
