Summer Dreamin’

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

It’s that transition time, cool in the morning (ok, downright cold) and you bundle all up to head out to start your day. But then by the time lunchtime arrives, the sun comes out full blast bringing with it a warmth that you had almost forgotten existed. So you start to slowly peel away those layers as you wiggle your foot out into those little spots of golden light. It is there that you get that lovely taste of warmth that has you pausing and dreaming of the summer days to come.
Me, I’m starting to flirt with the idea of shedding my winter layers of suede boots and ugh, those seen better days, sneakers (that come to think of it have not seen enough of the gym while it was still cold.) and going for something prettier and lighter to put a new spring in my step.

Now me being a tall girl, I’m not one to teeter around on some spindly heels so I always gravitate towards the classic espadrille as a go to summer shoe. Something about that natural rope style always takes me away to a calmer place. It’s like a vacation for your feet. I’m glad to see that this year there are plenty of styles to choose from ranging from your basic flats, which I adore, to fun and flirty stacked sandal styles that add height while still giving a girl like me (klutzy) much needed stability.

With so many espadrilles styles to choose from I can feel a shoe frenzy coming on. But first I’m thinking a trip to the nail salon for a long overdue Pedi is definitely in order. Another place I hardly saw over the winter months. Uh oh.
Tell me what is your favorite warm weather shoe style?
Side note question: Do you, like me, skip the Pedi’s during the winter?

Orange You Glad…

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Looking ahead to 2012 the Panotone people say are mad about tangerine this year. As a fan of the color orange I’m happy to get behind this trend.

 

 

So what to you think. Will you be doing the tangerine tango come 2012?

It’s a new day and I’m putting my best foot forward to get into the swing of things on this hump day.

How are you swinging today?

I can’t wait to see this documentary on New York Times Photographer Bill Cunningham. His On The Street scenes are works of art.

Happy Friday!

I love this fun video of Vogue’s Hamish Bowles and New York Knick Amar’e Stoudemire in a game of hoops (well sort of hoops).

Enjoy.

And the Fashion Oscar Goes to…

Monday, February 28th, 2011

So did you watch last night? No matter it was dullsville in quite a few parts. Honestly, to me the Red Carpet was more lively than the actual show. Here are my favorite Red Carpet looks:

Loving Natalie looking pregnant and beautiful, Mila gorge, Hailee so sweet and Anne loving the red.

Halle, Kate, Celine and Camila (girlfriend of Matthew McConaughey) hit it out of the park with their looks. I so want that black gown. And I’m giving a special nod to Kate for making me look twice before I decided her dress was really a work of art. Thanks Kate for not playing it safe.

 

Down here Jennifer, Gwyn, Amy and Nicole sadly don’t make the best list. They do get E’s for effort but there is something a little off with each look that keeps them for hitting their marks.

 

Best,

Hold That Tiger

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

So all of NY was a twitter last night over the premier at Madison Square Garden of the newest Knick Carmelo Anthony but it seems Carmelo was upstaged and Twitter was a twitter by veteran Knick and announcer Walt “Clyde” Frazier and his stunning tiger print jacket. Did you know that GQ has called Walt a style icon? Oh yes they did.

 

 He’s got the flash and the dash!

But here…All I can say is Hold That Tiger.

 

On the other hand, Walt has me thinking these shoes are kinda hot. Darn I’m torn now.

Best,
