 Bomber: c/o Paint It Red (shop HERE) ... Skirt: ASOS ... Top: Topshop
Belt: General Pants ... Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell 

Not fifty shades of grey, just two shades ... only two.
It has never occurred to me to combine tones of the most boring colour together. I always associated grey with moody weather, temporary depression or a sign you're getting old (although some people look smashing with grey hair). But on a non-gloomy afternoon, I thought it was a great idea to breathe new life into the poor, rejected being AKA 'grey'.

Many of you will be familiar with grey's distant cousin. The oh-so-popular queen bee who has ruled so many spring and summer wardrobes since the 1970's flower power ... the 'floral'. Now entering into this outfit in the form of a bright psychedelic magenta print, it was a match made in (for the lack of a better word) heaven. Seriously though, this bomber by Paint It Red is the rad-est mix of girly and sporty since the term 'sports luxe' was overused by everyone and their grandma.

Finally, I am not Angelina Jolie ... remember THIS?
