Day 53: Remains of the Grey

Grey from head to toes today  

 

 

Grey from head to toes today

 

The skies have escaped from the gloomy grey that has been looming for days, but I can’t seem to get away from my love of the overcast color. These, surprisingly from Old Navy, may be pair 5 of the grey shoe collection and they transition nicely into spring with a high heel, suede and studs. I like that the thick straps aren’t overbearing but are still substantial and I still feel feminine in them. They work well with skirts and I can envision enjoying them with shorts and tanks this summer. Do they survive for another summer or are they a dark cloud hanging over my wardrobe?

prov⋅e⋅nance

[provuh-nuhns, -nahns] –noun

place or source of origin: The provenance of the shoes has yet to be determined.

Date of Purchase: Spring 2008

Circumstances: These were a combo purchase with Day 37’s shoes and you can see the similarities. I found them both at Old Navy for ridiculous clearance prices and I was immediately attracted to these. I like the hint of a t-strap shape and the subtle stud detailing. I preferred them to the other pair but since both were so inexpensive, they both were adopted into the rotation.

Compliment Meter: 2. Nothing really of note to report. If I notice someone  noticing my shoes and not commenting….generally not the most positive sign.  Shoe confidence level: Medium-High.

Comfort: I unfortunately forgot my trusty gel inserts today and the balls of my feet are feeling it by lunchtime. Also, the t-strap with the studs on it rub against the top of my foot and by days end I was very unhappy. Overall, a 6 out of 10, with the gels I’d probably up that to a 7.

Worn with: Grey, cream and pink ombré blouse, grey pencil skirt and grey cardi when it’s chilly in the office. It truly is a grey day.

Thoughts: “When the world went to my closet to look for skeletons, they found shoes.” ~Imelda Marcos

Do these babies stay in the rotation or get dumped into the Shoe Graveyard?
