It sort-of works, but really I'm just ready to climb into the woolens already.
Wedge-heeled loafers. What can I say? I own two pair and love them. I had similar shoes in the mid-70's, and I adored them. I wear flats sometimes, but after so many years wearing heels, they really hurt the muscles in my legs. I also have a habit of dragging my right leg (easily visible by looking at how my heels wear) which is a bit trickier in heels, effectively forcing me to pay attention to how I walk. I've always leaned a bit to the side, but flat shoes seem to exaggerate it. So there-I need the heels, they're therapeutic.
The embroidered fabric of this skirt is difficult to photograph, but I wanted to get a close-up so you could see how well blue, green and brown work together. I nearly packed this skirt away for the season figuring linen would look funny in October. Am I ever glad I didn't.
These beads were from the same collection as the brooch pictured above. I was glad I had a chance to speak with the woman's daughter when I bought them-it makes me happy to know she was a well-loved woman.
We took a ride out to Blair, Nebraska today. Every Halloween, local shops will put out pumpkin/scarecrow displays and it is such fun driving around the town looking at all of them.
These fellas were outside the Goodwill.
