The Best Fleece + Thoughts on Going Grey

Dudley Stephens Fleece

Happy Monday! I meant to get this post up last Wednesday, but life and kid sleep schedules got in the way.

The Dudley Stephens fleece is one of my best purchases of the past six months. I’ve said it before, but I’m gravitating towards buying quality items that I will wear over and over rather than something I only kind of love.

I own the Park Slope version, which is a little shorter than the Cobble Hill. It fits me perfectly. I’ve worn it at least once a week since I got it. I plan to add another one next fall since I’ve gotten so much use out of this one.

I’ve read a couple of articles recently about going grey and the decision to dye your hair or not. While I certainly have more than a few grey hairs, I’m fortunate those course strands aren’t so numerous and that I can get away with coloring it once a year.

Ideally I’d get my hair cut and colored once every 4-6 months. Once I have a full head of grey hair, I’d have to go every 5-6 weeks. I just don’t know if I’m up for that level of commitment – both time and money.

On the flip side, I cannot picture myself with grey hair. I already feel old. It’s not a feeling I’ve accepted much less embraced. While I’d like the ease of going grey, I’m not sure I could actually do it when the time comes.

What about you, do you color your grey hairs? Or are you fortunate that you don’t have any??!

    First, thank you so much for your kind words on my post about outfit photos last week – really made my day.

    My friend Monica has Dudley Stephens and loves them, I need to try one! I have a few grey hairs (eek!), but they aren’t noticeable so I haven’t had to do any coloring yet. I wish I was confident enough to go grey at some point, but have a feeling I will be coloring my hair. I wish we could go all grey at once though so there was no in-between, I think that’s where it’s hardest!
