I have been wearing this navy skirt/sweater combo quite a bit lately. The sweater is linen from Talbots (thrifted) and the skirt is denim Halogen from Nordstrom. Since the sweater is linen I can wear it through the summer. I'd like to come up with new footwear options. Any shoes I choose for this are pretty likely to work with lots of other items in my wardrobe with my neutrals of black/grey/blue/white.

Today I wore it to a graveside memorial service, so I chose flat shoes, pumpkin bag, and added the raincoat (without the liner) since it was raining when we left the house. The flats are very comfortable and perfect for walking on the wet, uneven grass, but they don't do much for me style-wise. I have also worn black suede booties and tights with this combo in cooler weather.

I've added a few other shoe options as finds below. Black seems a no-brainer to me, but I'm also thinking nude or metallic would be good. I'm considering sandals with a heel...but no higher than 2.5". I don't like laces on sandals, and I'm hoping to find something other than gladiators since I have a few of those already. The style descriptor I'm hoping for is sophisticated modern.

#1 Skirt/Sweater with scarf; #2 same without scarf. First 3 finds are the raincoat, bag, shoes I wore today

Finds 4 + 5 are black sandals I have that would work. Finds 6,7,8,9 are some ideas..

Would love to hear some other suggestions...
