Gray Area

Gray is great. People think gray is a neutral, but I think it's such a moody, intense, dramatic and sexy color. It's very sleek. 

-Bryan Batt

Have you ever heard that quote,
 'When you think of someone, it means they were thinking of you first'?
It always seems when someone pops into my mind after a long period of time, suddenly they appear.
Does that ever happen to you, like you have conjured them or something? This happened to me yesterday. I was talking to my mom about an old friend who I haven't heard from or seen in years, and I got to work I received a FB message from that very person from another person's page, weird right? Seems he has been off the grid for some time and now after moving from place to place has settled with another friend on Portland, OR.  They had come across a photo of me from high school and had to reach out. What are the odds, that after so many years we would be thinking of one another at almost the exact moment?  
These are the things I love about life, the universe works in such mysterious ways. 

This sweater though! It is so soft and comfy, if I would live in it I could. I read recently that when women get dressed they should 'show their skinny'.  I don't think they necessarily mean 'skinny', but your best attributes rather. When I was younger it would have been my smaller waist, my friend Lorreen has legs for days, so that is her 'skinny'.  I find now that my best features are my shoulders and décolleté, which means, give me all the slouchy, off the shoulder sweaters! 

What is your skinny?

  6. The universe really does work in some amazing ways sometimes, it can be so neat. I've had some of that happen in my life, too. I love this cozy gray sweater and how you can wear it off both shoulder or just one. That ring handle on your bag is super cute, too!

  20. I can totally understand the kind of synchronicity you are talking about! One moment you think about a song, a person, and the next moment it's right in front of you!
    Great fall look :)

  22. I totally agree that the shoulders are one of the most flattering parts to show, and the way this sweater fits over your shoulders and bust makes it more flattering than a looser option too. So good!
