Perhaps it’s because we recently watched the entire three seasons of Wallander, with all that moody Swedish light and those sparse Scandinavian interiors. Or perhaps I just need the occasional visual palate cleanse. Either way, I was in the mood for a very pared-down look.
This ring is a perfect simple, bold accessory for the outfit.
Ever since I pinned this all-black-with-nude-shoes outfit, I’ve been obsessed with trying to recreate it for myself, but just couldn’t get the look right. With a pointed toe pump (the only nude shoes in my wardrobe), my feet looked disproportionately small. I decided a shoe with more visual volume was needed, but hadn’t found the right ones until I saw these block-heel sandals sitting on the shelf at Eileen Fisher. They are perfect, and so very comfortable.
While I like the concept of this outfit, and shoes and accessories, I think I can put together a better version with a bit more of the softness and movement I prefer. And we did enjoy Wallander, despite the occasional credulity-stretching plot conveniences, and frequent “two degrees of separation” between the main character and either victims or perpetrators.
Does the mood of a movie or TV show ever inspire your outfit choices?
