Whether you are going to work, doing your grocery shopping or heading out for school, today is WEAR BROWN SHOES DAY!  Here in Kansas it would be a great idea to wear some warm brown shoes because we are heading for some single-digit temperatures.

 A man hasn’t got a corner on virtue just because his shoes are shined.   – Anne Petry

Forgive my parallel here, but just as there are 50 shades of gray, there are, believe it or not, 50 shades of brown!  That’s as far as I’m going with that thought.  LOL.  For a color chart of brown shades, click on this link:


A couple of reminders to men who will wear a suit to work with brown shoes…

Please don’t be tempted to pull that lightweight tan suit from the back of your closet today.  That is a suit to be worn in the summertime and even though it would indeed go with brown shoes, it would look silly and out-of-place in winter!  Remember it is December, guys!  Make sure you don’t try to wear a black suit with brown shoes – that’s just wrong.  Make sure that suit coat or sports coat has some brown in it.


A better bet is to wear a heavy wool sports jacket with dark brown slacks (if your company would cut you some slack – no pun intended).  A suit doesn’t always have to matchy-matchy and a sports jacket can look just as classy as an actual suit, in my humble opinion.


 Funny that a pair of really nice shoes make us feel good in our heads — at the extreme opposite end of our bodies. – Levende Waters

Most women have many pairs of brown shoes in all 50 shades (no doubt).  We know that some of our shoes go with skirts and dresses while others go with our dress pants.  Here are my favorite pair of brown shoes for jeans or dress pants (I stopped wearing dresses a long time ago).  I’m a retired lady of leisure these days, so I dress comfortably.    😉


What a cute look!

I love it when Lucinda Berry Hill writes a poem!  I especially like this one and I know you will too!


If you are looking for a perfect Christmas gift, may I suggest a new devotional book by Lucinda Berry Hill?  Everyone needs a new devotional book to begin the new year!
