stuck on spring

it seems to be all i can talk about lately. i am totally, 100% ready for spring. warm spring. i know that it is actually spring now, here in the US, but y'all...brooklyn just isn't warm yet.

my honey and i have a great dynamic. he talks to me about obscure movie stuff *see his blog here* and i talk to him about my spring/summer wardrobe. both of us just nod and smile as the other is talking...but it is nice to share. we both love food tremendously...so there's the common bond.

now i'm not always fashion centric...and that isn't my intention for this blog *although it may be a large part of it* but i just have to talk about more things for spring. yesterday we talked about dresses...today it's footwear. specifically, gladiator sandals.

i think these strappy, large ankle flattering shoes *...maybe i have large ankles* would be perfect with any spring or summer dress that i listed yesterday. i plan on getting multiple pairs. i've listed my favorites below.

the uniform


these are shoes i would wear every single day. these shoes would make me keep up a pedicure. these shoes are perfect *i think.*

the bright

everyone needs a little bit of color in their wardrobe...and i need a lot more than most. i want a pair of these sandals in every color of the rainbow.

the dressy

i love dressy flats. i've always been tall...and my honey isn't the tallest guy, so these flats are right up my alley.

the modest but not modestly priced


these sandals are simple and expensive. not my personal taste...but they have to be super nice. thought i would throw them in the mix.

the wacky



i like unconventional accessories. paired with something simple, these surprising shoes would look amazing. who doesn't want to be the center of attention?
