Recently I've been noticing a lot of usages of "d'orsay flats" to describe shoes such as this pair of snakeskin pointy toe flats from Target. I did a quick search and found that it's a general term used to describe any shoe that has all of its sides cut away, and its vamp cut close to the toes. "D'Orsay pumps" such as ones worn here and here are the same except that they have heels. 

I thought I'd wear something gray to match these flats, but ended up going overboard with gray on gray on gray. I had to bring in a small amount of color by adding on a mint button down and a green purse, otherwise these pictures might be mistaken for black and white ones. What can I say? I love neutrals.
