I’ve been neglecting you, my darlings. I hope you can forgive me. There was the election and my birthday and I’ve been traveling.* In an effort to set things right between us, I am drafting this post as quickly as I can before boarding a flight home. Let’s see what I can do in 25 minutes.
My favorite pants! With a top and a jersey that you haven’t seen for awhile. And tough sneakers.
This outfit only works with a belt around my waist. Without it, I would have no shape.
This outfit combines so many good things: stripes, leopard, favorite pants, layering, fun sneakers. Perfect for the weekend or a very casual Casual Friday.
I’ve had these sneakers for years but hadn’t worn them much because I thought that they would make my feet look exceptionally large. They have thick, exaggerated soles that extend beyond the outline of body of the shoe. That ought to make my feet look disproportionately large — it’s adding at least 1/2″ by width and length to a shoe that is already big and boxy — but interestingly the color of the soles allows them to blend into the ground in a way that black soles would not.
O.K. That’s not interesting, but it’s true.
Setting aside the question of whether these sneakers make my feet look freakishly large, they are very comfortable. Therefore I have been reaching for them on the weekends.
Can you see the soles here? Do you see what I have tried to describe?
Come closer. Behold away! If you have the day off, stare as long as you like.

* I’ve been blue, too, which sometimes makes it hard to write. I hope that you don’t think that the light tone of these posts reflects a lack of attention to the news. I read it all and it breaks my heart. BUT to my great relief . . . the Blue Wave happened and it’s Mueller Time.
