I haven’t photographed it before now, but this has been the official uniform of Katie’s Unemployed Summer (K.U.S., which is what I often felt like doing). Really, it’s just the summer version of this.
I’m please at the combination of black, brown, and two shades of green with nary a pattern to be seen; I wasn’t sure it would work, but strangers were stopping me in the library to tell me how cute I looked. Then the librarian chastised me for my overdue book and my smug bubble was good and popped.
Now, let’s talk shoes. I tried on, and loved, the black version of these sandals last summer, but they were too rich for my wallet. When we were shopping for new shoes for The Rocket Scientist to take with him to Germany, I found the brown version tucked away in a corner of the store. Again, too pricey, but I couldn’t bring myself to put them down. So The Rocket Scientist got them for me and now I think of them as my Shoes of Love. Every time I wear them it’s like I’m walking on The Rocket Scientist, or something like that…
