Winter Shoes, A Summer Dress .......... and A Stupid Week
The best thing that's happened all week was a great pair of shoes on sale for exactly the price I wanted to pay for them. Otherwise, it's been one of those weeks when I've tripped over stuff, missed deadlines, forgotten appointments, dealt with internet trolls, gained weight instead of lost, and discovered that I'd run out of milk for my coffee immediately before I realized we were also out of coffee.
One makes tea and goes on.
So, back to the shoes. JCP has been selling off last season's display models, and they usually use size 6.5 for display. My size! I bought this pair of cap-toe pumps in black and pewter, took them home and put them in the closet to wait for fall.
Sometimes, though, you just can't wait to wear something new, and lately I've noted some women I admire wearing suede and wintry-looking shoes with their summery ensembles. ( Beverly at her blog Beverly Like Hills, did it really well HERE ... second outfit, in a combination I particularly admire with these adorable shoes.) Seeing the first glimmer of inspiration of the week, I called off my self-pity party and put together some summer-winter combinations.
Finally, and in keeping with the rest of my week ...
Take the picture.
Take the picture!
No ... WAIT ...
Lessons learned: you can wear wintry elements with summery elements if you want to, and a stupid week can get lots better with new shoes on sale.
