Black, Grey & A Pop Of Orange

Black, grey & a pop of orange – two colours I wear pretty much on the daily all year round and one I never do. Today’s outfit is about finally wearing that one pair of heels in your closet that don’t get to see the light of day enough. You have that pair too, right?

I’m going to be honest – this shoot was the first time I wore these heels even though I’ve had them for years. I got them working at a sample sale for one simple reason – the soles have unicorns on them. You can kind of see on the last photo. Ok, I did think they were cute but the main reason was the unicorn soles. They were the coolest soles I’d ever seen! I knew I probably wouldn’t get a lot of wear out of them, but I took them home anyway.

I was sure that one day I’d have a great grey outfit to pair them with, and I was right. Grey jeans and the comfiest black and grey sweatshirt jacket that I love wearing on cooler spring days. I’ve always been indifferent to orange but I actually really like how it looks with the black and grey.

Thanks for reading! I’d love to know if you have any shoes or clothes that you don’t wear enough but can’t bring yourself to throw out.

    Those soles are really adorable! I always liked the orange and gray color combo, and this is no exception. I hope you wear them out more often now that the weather is warming up!

    I’m such a sucker for gray and I love how you combined it here – actually, this might be my fave outfit you’ve worn this year 🙂 . It’s chic and relaxed and the heels are an unexpected addition. Also, those jeans are awesome, I very much like the cut and details!
    Surely there’s lots of stuff in my wardrobe I haven’t worn in a while, but I’m still working on what to keep and what to toss 😉

      I could totally see you wearing the jacket, it seems right up your alley. The jeans were a lucky find from H&M for only $10! I was amazed when I tried them on and they fit so well. That was a few years ago and now they’re really worn and soft, I love them! I think heels and dresses/skirts are the worst for me because on a daily basis I’m pretty casual, though I love getting dressed up when I can so I refuse to throw them out haha. xx
