I've also been thinking of adding boat shoes to my collection. I tried a pair of Bed Stu spiked ones in the last size but they were too small, so now I'm thinking of some all black Sperry topsiders. I could probably use the brown ones, but...meh.
The majority of my closet is black, so I've been trying to incorporate more green and mauve/lavender colors, such as below, but it's really hard picking an outfit all at once. Green is good though because it goes with black or brown, so I can make new additions work with what I already have.
This outfit above is from ASOS, one of my favorite online shopping destinations. I just got a cream colored henley with crochet sleeves that looks identical to the white undershirt shown above, and recently had to retire my only pairs of grey pants, so these might be coming home with me along with the sweater. I also ruined my only black work pants and flip flops, so the to-buy list keeps getting longer and longer. Bye bye paycheck.
