pretty shiny things


this week has been lovely and warm. the perfect time to bring out sparkly bling and color!


my toes are enjoying the sunshine, too. do you like my new birkenstocks? these are actually a pair from last year's flowery crop; i was disheartened to discover that they're only making solids this summer. but never fear, the internet came through and now i have happy feet.

i keep thinking about this song by paolo nutini:

Hey, I put some new shoes on,
and suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling,
it so inviting,
Oh, short on money,
but long on time,
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
and i'm running late,
and i don't need an excuse,
'cause i'm wearing my brand new shoes

it's rare for a man to capture accessory adoration* with such eloquence, but in this case, paolo's right on the money.

* i can't think of a better way to describe this, but m knows what i'm talking about. accessories make all the difference. shiny, sparkly, blingy things make me happy. jewelry and scarves. fun shoes. beads, sequins, rhinestones, long flowy ribbons. all that cutesy girlie stuff. so there. now you know. and i'm going to keep on smiling, because i've got my new shoes on and everything is right...

I sooo get this accessorie thing. I think a pretty scarf makes an outfit as the nice necklace does.
I see the ability to accessorise a gift from the above. Who would want to be good at footie...?

P.S. Cute shoes :)
