Growing up we had a family friend who we called “Aunt Jean”, my mother would regularly visit her at the retirement home she lived in and I would often join her. Aunt Jean was always happiest when it was cloudy out and would proclaim “I LOVE a grey day” (she sounded very Katharine Hepburn in “Philadelphia” when she said it) when I was a child I couldn’t understand why someone would be happier when the sun wasn’t shining? Well Aunt Jean has long since passed away but her words resonate with me when I wake up to a grey day, like today here in LA. I Love a grey day so that I can burn scented candles, drink hot tea and dress in cozy, layers like in these photos. Thanks for reading and for those of you here in LA enjoy the grey!
