Delicious pumps. High Tea at the Four Seasons. Strolling in my fave F21 jacket. Grammy's garnet ring.

I realized two things after looking at my shoes last night...BLACK and GREY. Can we say creature of habit? I tend to stick to more "practical" (black and grey) colors that can go with most anything but I think it's time I inject a little color into my shoe life! Sheesh. 

Do you find yourself gravitating towards the same things over and over again?

i do- particularly when it comes to shoes. my high-end collection isn't as glamorous as yours. but the few pairs i do own are all black in some way shape or form. and my mid pricers are mostly black or grey. i can't help it!

RosaLovesDC said...

I do! I think I tend to buy black or silver shoes. I have been trying really hard to break that habit, I need more color in my shoe collection.
Love the food pics!

I have about 5 black dresses that are either empire waist or a-line. So, yes, I tend to gravitate toward similar things that I know work for me and will get a good amount of use. I've started gravitating toward everything out of the ordinary, lately, though. I like it better this way!

But they are glorious black and gray shoes! Aren't your Balenciagas blue?

Omg Nicole love everything about this post! Tea sammies and shoes!

I'm seriously drooling over you YSL mary Jane pumps so freakin' cute!

I'm just like you I tend to be very safe especially with investment pieces but all the recent bright colors and color blocking trend makes me feel like I need to run out and do a complete closet overhaul in color!

Krystal said...

i'm also a total creature of habit, i need some color in my wardrobe soon!

Julip Made said...

If I had your shoe collection I wouldn't care that is was black and gray. Also those tea sandwiches look amazing. I'm planning an Easter brunch and these would be perfect appetizers!

Izzy Melhuish said...

modanistajunkie.com said...

You can say that again. I do it all the time!!! I lean a lot more towards the greys and black, but tried to mix some neutrals and warm colors once in awhile.

Love your jacket. Goes great with the dress.

Love your style and your blog! Your new follower :)

the nyanzi report said...

Yes we humans tend to gravitate towards that thing or place where we find comfort. It sometimes is exciting to shake it up a little and go off course.
Great shoe collection you've got.

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally! I have a few items I love wearing over and over again and that ring is really beautiful, darling. Kisses and hugs

Twenty.Something said...

Loving the feminine lace with those boots!

Priscila Peters said...

Recently, I've realized that too. Most back and nude shoes. I want to change that.... it's about time.

Couture Carrie said...

I am the same way!

You look gorgeous, and I love these pics!

Fabulous ring!

Jess said...

Oh yes- I wear tons of black! It's so chic and classic. I do love a good pop of color here and there though!!

TheChambrayCountess said...

Your shoes rock! And watch out, or you'll end-up like me: deciding you need a colorful pair of shoes and then coming home with bright blue pumps with sparkly bows! (I stand by my argument that the sparkles blinded me and thus I was forced to purchase them because I couldn't see until they were safely away from light in a shopping bag)

Barby said...

You have a great shoe collection. And your outfits look great! Really like your blog.
Thank you for being my new follower, will follow you back.

Have a nice day and stay in touch.
