It’s a little over two weeks until the official start of spring but the season has been in full swing since the latest collection landed at the sister store to Ann Inc.’s LOFT. If you haven’t met Lou & Grey, it’s the style secret you’ve been waiting for and on Sunday I had the chance to meet and greet with some of the stylists at my local store.
Keep reading for more of the who, what & wear from this weekend’s fantastic event!
Take it from me, the best events are the kind that combine friends, fun treats and fashion. I know this because Sunday’s event at the Lou & Grey (located in the Natick Collection) was exactly the taste of spring I had been craving. With fellow Bostonian & Boston blogger, Laura of A Little Bit of Lacquer hosting, I sipped on tasty mocktails and tea, snacked on pastries and indulged myself with Lou & Grey‘s new spring pieces.
The brand itself has helped to evolve my style and wardrobe with a toned down yet more versatile palette that transitions easily from work to play. Starting with a staple color (grey), each season incorporates color stories with muted tones that are meant to showcase a style that is “soft, cozy & cool”.
This season calls for the introduction of hues like peach brandy, sunflower, ocean breeze, Moroccan clay and ivory. These tones are flattering on everyone and with pieces that wear well together with the denim, joggers and leggings found on the minimalist fixtures around the store.
My other favorite part about this store is that it showcases apothecary, jewelry and home deco pieces that are truly inspired and made by artists, designers and growers from all over the country. I love this concept because it raises awareness about American businesses and promotes the uniqueness and personality of each makers eye.
Whether you come in for the style or stay because you wish you could live with the soft chrome fixtures and open concept, Lou & Grey has something for everyone. And in my case, it’s a lot of somethings…
