I recently purchased a new everyday bag in a cool mid-grey color. It's a color I like and one that was popular in interiors and clothing about 10-15 years ago. I wore it a lot then, but don't have anything in this shade in my wardrobe right now except for an old t shirt.

It's a nice near-neutral (for me) that might be a good alternative to black.

I have been thinking that it would be good to keep my eyes open for a pair of shoes or two to complement the bag. My preferred styles for fall are ballet flats, loafers, and leather sneakers.

Any suggestions for a match? Calling Inge, who is often great at this sort of thing!

Custom find below, but the same style is also available on Nordstrom (just not in this color).
