Oh man, where to start today? New gold shoes, new-to-me ruffly skirt…actually, I guess that’s about it.
My Golden Ponies oxfords finally arrived over the weekend and they fit amazingly well and are surprisingly comfortable. I’m really just so pleased with them, since I have a spotty record when it comes to internet shoes.
The only downside so far is that after one sedentary day of wearing them at work, I’d already put two scratches/scuffs in the gold. Since I’m not the most graceful person in the world, I’m a little worried about how long it’ll take before they look totally beaten up–but I guess I’ll just walk softly and worry about that when I get there. (Do they make gold shoe polish?)
A while ago at the office I was quite taken with a coworker’s pink-and-gold outfit combination, and I can finally replicate it as often as I want. Gold shoes pretty much go with everything, but I’m looking forward to thinking up some particular pairings for maximum effect.
Over and over lately, I keep finding myself drawn to a particular type of feminine clothing–“romantic” is really the word that comes to mind for me, despite the fact that I don’t consider myself a very feminine or romantic person. There’s something about the drapey fabrics and muted colors that really appeals to me, though, and I think I just have to accept it instead of feeling self-conscious about it.
I’m not planning on going full-on romantic anytime soon, I should note. I like loud colors too much and would be loath to give up my hot pink floral pants. But even so, it’s good to know myself just a little bit more.
