Pretty in Pink Sandals

Pair no. 35: Sandals always give me hope. Even when someone is wearing them in the fall. Hope for summer, hope for fresh raspberries, and hope for walks near cool streams. These sandals are so darn cute — I don’t blame the wearer for wearing them with black ill-fitting pants to work in autumn. In fact, I think that cute shoes can totally redeem all of the comfortable and fashionless pants in the workplace.

Pumps in Philly

Pair no. 34: These pumps belong to someone much sassier than you would expect. Although, since they are alligator embossed and with a slight metallic sheen, you might guess that the owner has her own style and her own blog. I mentioned to the owner that when I turn 50, I will follow my Doctor’s advice and wear Dansko clogs — she scoffed openly at me! She told me she was turning 50 in a month and no way in hxxx, was she going to give up her high heels. Here’s a shout out to you Miss Fifty. Keep on workin’ it and keep on feelin’ it! See her blog at Renegade Conversations!
