    Black with khaki! I was always too afraid to do that combo. I usually just stick to white with it and a really neutral shoe. I may have to think my lack of kahki pants.

    I love the black and khaki combination, I never thought of putting some purple into the mix, perhaps I will give it a go!

    You must have a really great wardrobe.

    Navy & khaki is a CLASSIC–very WASPY combo.

    "Shoes with reddish undertone…"
    Have to keep this in mind. Definitely like some color with my khaki!

    What I have is a correct wardrobe. It's very small, but it's correct. Once I start working full time again, we may have space for recreational wardrobing. And BTW, navy jackets with khaki, yes. Just shoes are a no unless you like the military feel. In which case, epaulets my friend!

    I love khaki. It's so versatile.

    (Your mention of epaulets above… let's just say I saluted.)

    Oh no, it's the metallic sandal issue again! (Heh-heh.) Methinks we need "The Privileged Guide to Life" in hardcover soon. The Illustrated version.


    PS: We never (ever) joke about publishing.

    I think it depends on the navy shoe?? I love my navy strappy heels (J Crew Dorie/Nicolette) & several pairs of ballet flats. I love them & have never thought twice about wearing with khakis. That's what makes fashion fun. We are all a little different. I don't know if there are any strict rules.

    Khaki – such a wardrobe staple. Love the idea of the alligator belt and cashmere sweater – it almost makes me want for fall to return!

    :). Yes, even the Privileged Guide To Life concurs that there are no set rules. I'm just explicating the values and aesthetics and experiences of a particular High WASP subset.

    I am all about pairing black or gold with navy. I also think navy looks fabulous too. A khaki skirt with a white blouse, a navy sweater around your shoulders and navy flats is tres chic I think!

    The reddish shoes remind me of the old Etienne Aigner days. They did look good with khaki. But, I also think that wearing dark navy shoes is a very acceptable up-scale look, too. I love to wear a pale pink or blue shirt with khakis and navy shoes. And I agree, no primary colors.

    Lindy, I wanted to let you know, I am really enjoying your comments. I too remember Etienne Aigner. For me the dark navy shoes would depend on the style of the pants, I think.
