Okay I know what you’re thinking, that’s not grey (though apparently that’s what you’ve been thinking all along, this time, the dress is not grey no matter how you take the picture). In fact, that’s decidedly not grey. You’re right. It’s green (though it does come in shades of grey to be fair- well it did but now it’s sold out, scroll down to see my favorite picks in similar styles and colors). 

But, since we focused on these shoes (buy them before they’re gone- scroll down for links) so much for my grey series, I decided to give you an up close and personal look. Also, I want to note that this isn’t the last time you’ll see this dress, I just haven’t found the perfect leather jacket (that this piece is dying for) and I couldn’t wait to wear it. 

This post, however, is all about the shoes. You know how sometimes you look at something and you think, that’s so not me. Or you write something off at first glance. Come on, we all do that. Whether it’s about something as trivial as clothes or as important as people. We all have those snap judgements. It’s what we do after that matters. 

That’s how I felt the first time I looked at these shoes. They were a little risqué for my conservative tastes. Maybe just not quite me. I mean they’re laced up peep toes. I’ve always been more of a closed toed ballet flat kind of girl. But, when my husband pointed them out to me again (yes, we look at shoes together- which is probably why we fell in love- he doesn’t like sports and loves clothes shopping almost as much as I do or maybe because I do? That’s a thought for another day), I gave them a second look. They grew on me. Kind of like people. Sometimes, you meet them and you don’t click right away. Sometimes you have to give them a few views before you can see their beauty. 

I’m glad I gave these shoes a second glance. Is there anyone in your life you may need to look at from all the angles? You may still end up with a return, but you won’t be sorry you tried.

    1. I saw that too and I find them really comfortable. I have wide feet and didn’t find any smooshing problems. That said- not every style is going to work for every person. Rockport is designed for comfort though and I wore these on thick gravel to do a train track shoot and I didn’t have a problem.

  1. Jamie,
    Even though they are less conservative than your used to, your husband knows best. Funny how husbands can help us pick something out of our normal buying habits. My husband did the same thing with a pair of boots for me. I’m jealous he shops with you!! All the best and keep rocking those shoes!

    1. Right? In fact, sometimes he does it without me ? haha it’s a perk of doing a fashion blog together though- he looks at something and goes “that would look really cool in a photo” and then he buys it for me and I love them…❤️❤️❤️

  2. Girl I LOVE these shoes and I love that you stepped out of your comfort zone to get them! They’re seriously so fabulous on you!

    1. Thank you ❤️❤️❤️ they’re my favorites right now! And, so comfy! I also have a pair of black closed toed booties that I’m dying to share!

    1. Grey is such a fun neutral. It can look purple or blue or sometimes even green depending on the light. You won’t regret adding more into your wardrobe.
