Toe Polish…

It might be the spring solstice, the impending daylight savings time change…or just the fact that I’ve had a bit of vitamin d the past few days, but I AM READY for spring. Or more likely it’s just a growing obsession with neon, but I would loooove to have a pair of neon toe cap flats for my springy toesies. They seem to be ‘everywhere’ at the moment, but all at quite a springy price. I tried to pacify myself with a pair of £10 Zara metallic toe caps in the Christmas sales, but the feeling of what I can only describe as ‘binder clips on my toes’ is not a good look ( or feel). Can anyone vouch for Jcrew or Kate Spade flats and their worth/quality? Any justification can be forwarded straight on to me, Brittany  c/o the spring shoe fund…

The short of it…

Wow, where have I been lately? I’d like to say I’ve been off having adventures…but sadly I don’t have much to show for my time away. Just work, life and trying to get off the computer to give my eyes/wrist/brain a liitle bit of relaxation. One thing that has changed in the last few weeks is my wardrobe…an order to ASOS and the new season launching at work and voila—every day a new box of clothing is being crammed into the 2.5 foot wide space I call a closet. Certainly not something to complain about…

I’ve been desperately seeking new skirts for several seasons now but am really struggling to find ones I like…they are either too businessy-long (which requires heels, something I’m not up for very often) or way too short to be considered appropriate. So shorts it is…somehow I feel you can get away with them being a bit shorter? The cutesy River Island Flocked Spotty Shorts from ASOS (pictured above) have recently made their way into my life..you can’t be too short if you have twee spots, can you? Maybe don’t answer that…

Oh and then there is Madewell. Sigh. The Silky Trouser Shorts in their fabulous Napolean blue colour (bottom left) are fabulous… BUT NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING! Ah, but never fear as ASOS is near with the decently similar Asos Soft Turn Up Short (bottom right) which somehow snuck in too…(cue innocent whistling).  Not quite the same zing, but I think they will do. Paired up with my new pair of flat, over the knee ‘Puss ‘n’ Boots’ style suede boots and perhaps I AM ready for a bit of adventuring-pirate style…maybe that is where I was going wrong!
