My latest fix: Gray sneaks

By now it may be evident that the color is a staple in my wardrobe. Here it is worn with purple, and to me one of purple's best compliments - dark brown.

I know it's summer and it seems odd to be wearing corduroy, but I really like its texture and how it contrasts well with cotton shirts. It also looks great with my new leather filigree belt.

What I also like about the sneakers is that the laces are long enough to be tied around the shoes and can be kept in place by these patches.
