In an effort to hurry along warmer weather, I’m doing my part by buying sandals.

Not just any sandals…

Cute sandals.

It started when I bought a super cute new bright blue floral pencil skirt. I loved the skirt but, sadly, had no shoes that matched it. I was forced to go shopping.

Really, I was. It was completely necessary. (At least that is the story I gave Captain Cavedweller!)

My quest for blue shoes ended when I saw this pair of wedges at Shoe Carnival by Cabrizi. They’re called Rubee. Love, love, love them. Comfy and cute! What more could you ask for in a shoe! And if you’re an Elvis fan, they are blue suede..

While I was at the Shoe Carnival I also found this cute pair.black sandal

Jasmin  Madison. Love the casual look. These will be great for running errands or days when I don’t want a high wedge.

I also may have given in to the urge to own a pair of red wedge sandals and ordered these.

Aersoles Plush Above has this plush, super-comfy footbed. I love the cork blended with the red leather.

Yes, I like shoes.

A lot.

And if Captain Cavedweller asks, these were all absolutely essential to have.

Those who know me, know I have a thing for shoes.

My history with shoes has been a love/hate affair since I was really little.

Due to some foot problem that I can’t even recall the reason for now, my mother always took me to buy the ugliest brown shoes at the one nice shoe store in town. And I mean ugly. They were clonky and brown and plain. I hated them. If I didn’t think dire consequences would befall me if I hacked them into pieces, I would have destroyed every single pair of them. One Christmas program at school in particular sticks out in my mind. I had a beautiful new blue dress with lace trim and there I was on stage with those horrid brown shoes.

Sometime around the sixth grade either my problem went away or I refused to wear the brown shoes anymore, but my footwear selections began to look up. For my eighth grade graduation I remember getting a pair of three-inch high white wedge sandals. I thought I had hit the big-time.

For the next decade I fell in love with shoes. I had heels and boots, flats and sandals in fun colors and styles.

Then somewhere in my mid-twenties, arthritis set in an old foot injury with a vengeance and I gave up all my beautiful shoes. I took to wearing ugly support shoes in shades of black and brown. It was like a return to my childhood footwear nightmare. This went on for many years. I hated my shoes and I think they hated me right back.

One day I was browsing in a store and found a pair of shoes that practically screamed out to me to buy them. They were cute and sassy and fun, unlike anything I owned at that time. Surprisingly, they were comfortable and I had no problem wearing them.

Cute shoes reentered my world and I’ve been on a bit of a campaign to restock my closet with as many pairs as possible.

The latest addition was this pair of Red Rialtos.

red shoesThey practically jumped off the shelf and chased me around the store. Super comfortable and so cute and sassy, I absolutely love them (My shoes stay on my feet for about 12-hours a day so when I say they are comfortable, I mean they were comfortable all day!). The best part is, I just saw them on sale for only $14.99.

The other day, Captain Cavedweller and I drove to the city so he could get some new boots for work.  While he tried on stuff that was not so fun, I spent my time drooling over the boots in the women’s section.

Apparently, I have become a bit obsessed with cowboy boots.

It started with this pair of Justin Boots.


Which then moved on to this pair of Justin Punchy Boots. (I still want these, badly).

Then I saw this pair while we were shopping the other day. They are from Roper and felt so comfortable. I loved the contrast and textures!

Then this pair from Twisted X Boots caught my eye. The stitching around the top of the boot speaks to me, quite loudly in fact.

This pair from Macie Bean, called I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, did me in. I really, really want these.

I don’t think my psyche can handle any more trips with Captain Cavedweller for him to get work boots. Nope, just  can’t do it.

It’s spring and I’m in love.

(Besides with Captain Cavedweller, the new look of our bedroom and my new microplane!)

What I’m gushing all over these days are the new spring fashions. There are so many I love! That hasn’t happened for a while and I’m nearly giddy with excitement.

Spring’s favorite shades of pink and “honeysuckle” are right up my girlie-girl alley.

How could you not love this gorgeous dress from Dress Barn that just oozes charm, sophistication and flirty fun?

Much to my delight and Captain Cavedweller’s dismay, ruffles are still popular. This sweet T-shirt has flutter sleeves and a nice spray of ruffles that can take this simple T from ho-hum to fabulous. This is also from the Dress Barn. Look for interesting details this spring that can add pop to your outfit.

And these espadrille’s with the awesome flower in knock-your-socks off pink? I may have been overcome with the desire to have them and ordered them three seconds after I saw them online. Maybe. Perhaps.

In case you haven’t picked up on this trend, flower and rosette details are wildly popular for spring. You’ll see flowers adorning headbands, dresses, shirts, handbags and shoes. Literally, everything from head to toe!

Polka dots are also big for spring. Much to my ever-lasting joy, pencil skirts are still on the radar as well. I thought this skirt from JC Penney was so cute!

This spring’s fashions are so soft, feminine and lovely. I know that’s not everybody’s cup of tea, so I’m sorry to those of you who hate all the girlieness. But for those of us who love it – Woohoo! There is a lot of great stuff out there to choose from!
