A Little Pick-Me-Up

image

When I say a pick-me-up I don’t mean coffee, I mean shoes. I’m sure that goes for a lot of people?  They always make me feel so good. Anyway, I snagged these for $12.99 at Zara. Yes. $12.99. So, already that makes me love them even more. And they are just what I wanted to lift my spirits since it is still winter and I am still recovering from shoulder surgery.

Lace-up boots and booties bring me back to a time in my childhood when I found a pair of lace-up heels in my mom’s closet and wore them around the house pretending to be a grown woman. Those were circa 1989. Who knew my little fantasy would come to fruition.

Wearing Vintage Levis jacket | Truly Madly Deeply top | BCBG skirt | Steve Madden mules 

The weather has been unseasonably warm here in upstate New York. Usually around this time of year I’m wearing the a coat, so to be bare-legged and feel comfortably warm is beyond ordinary.  Keeping a light denim jacket by my side is perfect for when the sun goes down and the temperatures begin to drop again. I snagged this Levi’s jacket in New York City at a flea market. I just could not pass it up; I tend to find the best things when I’m not really looking.

For now, I’m happy to soak up the sun and swim in the colors of fall on this sunny Sunday afternoon.

Sweater: Free People | Top: Zara | Jeans: Guess | Shoes: Steve Madden

I love the freedom of this city, when you catch the right wave of energy it feels like an incredible breath of fresh air, a massive push in the right direction.  Plans can change in an instant.  I am in charge of my personal legend, every day has a story, come join me on this beautiful adventure…

New York has a funny way of giving us all four seasons in one week. The good thing about that is being spoiled with some warm sunshine, so much so I had bare arms the other day. On the down side the flu is in full force and I fell victim to it last week. All I can say is I am so happy to be in the light at the end of the tunnel and just in time to enjoy these last few days I have off from work.

I was excited to wear these shoes I snagged for quite the steal.  I saw them a couple months ago when they first came out and immediately needed them.  Reluctantly, I waited because I knew I would have them when the time was right, and voila here they are.  Velvet is a huge trend right now and how cool is it that they’re this beautiful blush color. Spring is all about transitioning and this shoe has transition all over it. I’m a little too eager for spring and Mother Nature had me confused yesterday with a beautiful 70 degrees and light breeze.  Today was not so forgiving, so I threw in the towel on my plans to adventure and settled with the idea of sipping on a hot chai tea in this cozy restaurant I found just down the street from my apartment.
