color me happy

happy feet

Colleen and I were just talking the other day about needing to add more color to our lives.   I’ve done a good job with my house but somehow over the years my closet has turned from vibrant jewel-tones to brown, black and gray with a couple of semi-colorful tops thrown in.   Getting dressed in the morning has become less than inspiring.

So this weekend, to celebrate my final run of C25K Week 4, I went in search of a little special sauce for my wardrobe.  Ok, really I was just looking for some new sandals, preferably something beyond my normal neutrals.   After trying on many, many shoes (don’t get me started about my stupid skinny non-shoe-fitting feet), I finally found something that was both comfortable and contained my considerably long tootsies.  Also it had rhinestone bling!

But then, the dilemma – what color?  The red patent leather or a more practical beige?   A quick consultation with my sisters (I heart my blackberry) confirmed my instincts – RED!  Now I just need some warm weather and toenail polish and I’ll be set.

  1. Love the red! Speaking of grey/gray (which is it?) I just got some new converse sneakers in that color. Pooh. Should have gone for bright green. Pedicure Heather. I haven’t touched my own toes in years. And I really like my feet.

    • Maybe you could get some green laces to brighten up the grey (I don’t think it matters gray/grey). Or red. Or Pink!

      Pedicures are officially off my list after the last one in which I almost lost a toenail thanks to an abusive pedicurist. The thought of doing that again stresses me out.
