I’m Obsessed

Can one have too many black Oxfords? I don’t think so. These polished leather Derby shoes by Common Projects, set on crepe rubber soles, fill the gap perfectly between their minimalist sneakers and more formal offerings. Paired with everything from jeans to business attire, these will take you right through till summer, when, weather permitting, you’ll be barefoot in the grass.

Sometimes you just need a little shine on your shoes to get you off on the right foot. And, it doesn’t get any shinier than this… a classic lace up oxford in patent leather by Gucci.  They make me smile just looking at them. I think I’d need two pair cuz I’d wear them every day… with some beat up jeans and a black  turtleneck or crew. The simplequietmodern anchor to my seasonal uniform.
