Town & Country: Out and About








































































































































Gorgeous weather, thick sweaters, and scarves -- in all their myriad manifestations -- in Paris and the country, plus lots of gray everywhere.

Camel has not emerged on the streets where I was yesterday, but I did see the beginnings of a timid navy blue movement -- more on that subject next week. Camel is in the boutiques, but so far as I saw, not yet out and about.

Take a quick glance at the shoes in the top picture. Every time I see chaussures like these, I think, "Surely no one can wear them." How wrong I am. And let me tell you, she could really move in them. Terrifying and amazing.

I agree with you about the shoes. They are only wearable if you don't have to walk.
I have some shoes like those platform pumps, purchased in a weak moment when I thought I was being chic. Of course I never wear them.

I love the variety of looks you've captured here, Tish! It looks as though les bottes et les ballerines are still popular shoe choices. I know one or two women who can walk in those heels but I think they're genetic aberrations!

The shoes scare me. I'd rather NOT twist and ankle. I am seeing lots of gray as well and not camel to be found. Have a wonderful weekend.

I've always wondered who bought those shoes too. Nice to know she can walk in them. Certainly not me anymore.

Those shoes would impress me minus the platform. My above ankle boots are 3.5 inches and I love them. No, I don't wear them all the time. My tall flat boots are worn more. (Gee, you've even got green leaves on trees. We don't.) Funny how we've all zeroed in on the shoes. I saw her flat tummy/waist first. Wonder what that means. xoxo, C.

Bill's ex-wife broke her ankle falling off her high heels (alcohol may possibly have been involved). The forced immobility caused her to gain an enormous amount of weight and she wasn't slim to start. I think I'll remain unfashionable, thank you.

Bonjour Tish ~ I love the look of those high heels but oops... I think I'd be topling over!! Love the lady in the bottom pic ~ she's very stylish.
Have a lovely week-end

WOOOOOO, honey, I know all about movin' in heels....my sister in law visited us once out in Boston and we went ambling along BEACON HILL where there are some hills to climb. I was sporting heels and she said, "HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU WALK IN THOSE?" I was trained as a dancer and in heeled character shoes, so I said, "I AM LIKE A MOUNTAIN GOAT!" At 52, I WOW the crowd at school with my pace in heels. They always say, "ELLE VIENT, MADAME RIVERA" because they can hear the click-clack rhythm of this old dame comin'!

Dearest, please visit Ruben this weekend; he will have a great post to share. Hope all is well....Anita

I"m always so impressed when I see women wearing shoes like the one in the first photo - and not just wearing them, but moving along with an effortless stride. I can't do heels higher than 2 inches or I look ridiculous so I watch with admiration.

My 24-yr old daughter navigates NYC in shoes likes these. But like Castles, Crowns and Cottages, she was trained as a dancer. I guess after pointe shoes anything is comfortable! I love your Out and About posts! I like seeing the clothes but I also like seeing the scenery. It really makes me want to pack my bags and hop on a plane!
