ShoesDay Apr 5.11

. . It's a dull, damp Shoes-day here on the South Shore. I woke to a sprinkling of snow on the ground which has since melted, and now it's drizzling outside. Spitting, as my mother would say. I think I'll wear something a little more substantialon my feet today. . Ah! Here we go! How about these gorgeous brown suede boots. They're mid-calf in height, look practically brand new and never worn, and they're very, very comfortable. They were a bit pricey for thrift at $14.99; but for fit, comfort and fashion (plus a little va-va-voom), they were well worth it.. They make my feet feel happy. So, seeing it's National Poetry Month, I composed a little poem about them.

My calf and foot is wrapped in suede.


The wedge has just a wee, slight grade.


They're cheap but stylish, comfy and cute.


At 15 bucks! That's a darn fine boot!


.

To brighten what seems to be a dreary day for me, I'm wearing a new thrifted scarf ($1.25 at Frenchies). I love the bright colors and the polka dots. The only jewellery I'll add are these blingy little hoops from Fifth Avenue. . Hi ho, Hi ho. It's off to work I go. Happy Shoes-day my friends; I hope your feet are happy too. . .

I loved this post. It made my dreary day happier just knowing you are wearing these fine books and that lovely scarf and jewelry.
I love a good find at the thrift store. Hurrah.
My mom always said it's spitting snow too. I was raised in Putnam County, West Virginia in a tiny town. Evidently our towns are closer than we think since they used the same language.
Have a great day.
Thanks for lifting my spirits.
Blessings, Barb in Ohio
