We live in the country. So in early spring when townies are able to wear summer footwear, I risk messing up my nice shoes in our muddy driveway. Plus, I hate having cold feet. So up to now, I have been wearing my light ankle boots.
But now I am ready to break out my Tod's loafers and my summer pumps ... book an appointment for a pedicure ... and then hit the shopping trail... desperately seeking a new pair of sandals.
And finding new sandals is not an easy task for me.
These are my old black sandals. I've had them for at least four years; they're falling apart, and I cannot find anything to replace them.
And believe me, I've tried.
But I am nothing if not perennially optimistic. So as Shakespeare said in Henry V ... "once more onto the breach, my friends, once more"... who says that Shakespeare can't teach us anything about shopping, eh?
One problem is that many of the styles this spring are not made for narrow feet like mine. See the Birkenstocks below? I saw these on Netaporter.com. Cute eh?
The Chloe sandals below are gorgeous. I love the ankle strap. And they ARE more narrow than the Birkenstocks.
Okay...so I might be exaggerating just a little. But not much, trust me!
The Tod's patent sandals below would certainly fill the bill. And I love the nude colour. I mean I don't have to get black, right?
So.... to come back to Shakespeare and Henry V... I must "stiffen the sinews" and "summon up the blood"..."the game's afoot." Off I go.
But with weather today like this...
I will be taking full advantage of the trend this spring to dress like this...
And wear my new sneakers with my jeans. If it's good enough for Phoebe Philo...well, who am I to argue?
