Gracey Wears: Red Shoes

I have never been a red shoe type of gal.  I have always, for whatever reason, preferred blue shoes.  And then I met these:

Fidji V623 Sandals

I think it was probably the scalloped edges that did me in.  But, the totally walk-able heel isn’t hurting matters.  Or my feet.

Still, I wasn’t sure I’d really wear them.  After all, they *are* red and I’m a lifetime member of Team Blue Shoe.  But, can I just say that those little babies are easily as versatile as my beloved blue shoes.

This replacement was nabbed for a song at a Land’s End Inlet near my parents’ house. read more

I love animals, I love being out of doors, and I love feeling strong and capable. But I’m fairly certain I’d make a horrendous cowgirl. I’m a wimp at heart, I sunburn easily, and ever since I got thrown off my horse in Iceland I’m a bit shy of riding. But I still love my cowgirlish clothes and accessories, especially for summer wear. read more
