To keep my basics from being too boring, my go to neutral shoes are my leopard flats. They are currently on sale at J. Crew. I like them so much, I bought a second pair for when I inevitably wear them out (the sign of a good shoe purchase).
We are having a cool spell in Southern California. The fog made me grab my cozy black cashmere cardigan and favorite neutral flats.
I have always loved leopard print since I can remember. I first introduced it in my wardrobe a long time ago with some great sandals, then a belt, then a velvet leopard print bikini and then many other items. I do not own many plain black shoes. I think leopard can almost always replace black and add a little something. Shoes are also a fun place to play with pattern and color.
