I have this thing for gray. You know how some people can fall back on neutrals like brown or camel? Well, I can't. My skin tone doesn't do brown or camel well at all. So my neutral is gray. I particularly love gray shoes, I think that the gray peeking out from underneath dress pants or skinny jeans looks so nice.
Here are one of my favorite gray shoes, I adore the little dip at the toe.
Lately, I've especially been wanting gray boots/booties. I think they would make a nice staple in my fall/winter wardrobe.
Cupcakes and Cashmere led me to these delish Prada booties. Oh so yummy! But still quite pricey at $620.
I then found these patent leather oxfords by Report Signature. I don't quite know how I feel about the style, but I do love the color. I think I may be able to pull it off with a black dress and black tights in the fall.
And then I remembered that episode of Gossip Girl when Serena wore these awesome over the knee boots. By the time I went to order them, I was too late as everyone and their mom wanted a pair as well, but it looks like they are back. I'm usually not one for flat boots as they are extremely hard to pull off when you're my height but these just appeal to me.
The boots are by Chinese Laundry. I'm a bit hesitant as "cheap" shoe brands never work out for me but I'm willing to give it a shot as I can't find anyone else that makes anything similar. The only thing is I wish that they still made the dark gray rather than the light gray.
I still don't absolutely love either one. They could both be either super cute or super ugly. I'll just get them and see how they turn out. Anyone find any other cute gray boots, let me know! There's gotta be some out there that I still haven't seen.
If you are wanting more, Cupcakes and Cashmere put together a great post of her selection of gray booties.
