Finally, I think spring is coming. It was cold today in Pittsburgh (highs only in the 30's), but it's supposed to start warming up after this. Finally!!! Everyone is so tired of the snow and cold. I'm slowly getting my wardrobe ready for spring with brighter colors. I do have a lot of clothes, unfortunately many of them don't fit. I've see-sawed from one size to another for most of my adult life, so I hang onto things that I really like even if they don't fit at the moment. Right now, however, I'm at the largest size I've ever been, so I don't have many clothes in this size. And I really don't want to buy that many, because I don't plan to stay this size. But I'm going to have to get a few things. I've started with some things that won't change no matter what I weigh - shoes!
Come summer I'll be living in flip-flops and sandals, but for spring I need something that can get mud on it and wipe clean. What better than these patent leather Doc Martens? I love the three-tone color, and the oxford styling. The flat soles are good for my back, but they're fun and stylish at the same time. If any of you are interested, I ordered them from the online Doc Marten store. The style name is "Harrie". They also have a pair that are yellow, pink and orangey. Just too cute! I prefer these classic styled Docs, but they're branching out and have a lot of different styles of boots and shoes now.
It's hard to truly see the straps when it's on a hanger, but this gives you a general idea of how they look. I love the criss-cross.
Last, this shirt is made in such a clever way. Most of it is cotton, but the side panels are made from stretch knit. And it's such a fun color.
