This pair of shoes was not only waiting for a cream skirt, it was waiting for a turquoise cardigan as well.
They were a measly $12.50 from No 1 Shoes a couple of years ago, and I bought them to go with a skirt I have which is the exact turquoise of the shoes. It is also mid-calf length, silky, and circular with sun-ray pleats. In other words, I'd look very odd wearing it to work. I did wear it to a wedding shortly after I bought these shoes though, and the combination was much admired.
Today I'm wearing the shoes with my new-ish cream skirt, a cream blouse, a darker cream belt, and the turquoise cardigan I bought on Monday. It's very close to the same colour, not quite exact if you hold them right next to each other, but good enough when worn the length of my body away.
