Grey Days

grey tops

It's a darkish, grey day in New York. It's the perfect day to stay in and be lazy before the (short) work week, the last week of 2008, begins tomorrow.

The rooftops in Manhattan are unique ranging from tons of skyskraper steel, innovative shapes and ancient-looking water tanks towering above the activity of the streets and the people below, but, I've still got France on my mind.

This photo takes me back to those quiet mornings in Paris. The rooftops are not as eclectic as the ones in my hometown but they are certainly no less captivating or beautiful. I am overwhelmed with nostalgia when I look out at them.

Today's Soundtrack - And, these days I'm getting a lot of inspiration from this music and this film, hence the recent soundtrack choices...

No jokes, I'm printing this photo out and pinning it on my office wall for fashion inspiration. It's the perfect combination of grays and browns that I'm looking for. Love it, Monica!

So beautiful, and so instantly recognizable as Paris.
