I think this day was invented for me. I have been wearing open toed shoes for weeks. And sandals. And since there is a holiday related to this — check out holiday insights for more info –it’s nice to know today is a special day.
And it’s in May. And it is 53 degrees — not exactly balmy in some latitudes, but compared to the polar vortex we’ve experienced, this IS balmy!
These are my latest new sandals from DSW. I was possessed the day I went in there to buy them. I wasn’t leaving without sandals. I really wanted blue, but these are peachy. I just have to buy more pink to go with them on Fashion Friday!
If your feet aren’t ready for the light of day, I understand — been there. I got my pedicure last week, and it feels so good. But you can still honor today for a few minutes. Slip off those socks and enjoy the sun or clouds — just let them get some fresh air. When my kids were little, I would always pull their socks off at night and say, “Let those tootsies breathe!” I think that might have been my oldest’s first full sentence.
Free you feet today — even if it’s for a few minutes. And take a shoefie — Her Times fashionista Christine Eddy coined that term, and I love it.
