Today was all about sunshine, flowers and comfy outfits. It was also one of those days where you feel like you look better in the mirror than on camera (you know what I mean?). But...I still couldn't resist taking a few photos while in the presence of such colorful objects of nature.
Although the fog soon set in, it was still a happy, relaxed and calm kind of day. Not an ordinary Monday.
I am currently reading Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O' Dell. It's a story that I first read when I was in 4th grade and even then, it captivated me. But now, reading it for the first time in years, I am able to fully understand and appreciate it even more.
Today, while walking through a cove that I recently discovered, I couldn't help but imagine that I was like Karana (the girl in Dolphins), thoroughly observing my surroundings while wearing "handmade" jewelry (that I only wish I had the skills to know how to make) and a skirt (although not made of cormorant feathers as Karana's had been). But as I brought myself back to reality, I realized how thankful I am that I do not live alone on a secluded island.I never would've survived...would you?
Now that the flowery month of May has finally begun, I am so excited that the sun will be warmer and shine longer. And...I might also kind of sort of really be excited about the fact that I will be able to wear one of my newest pair of wonderful shoes! Allow me to introduce you to them:
These beautiful sandals by Pink Studio (regularly sold at Anthropologie) officially became mine after I won them for a ridiculously low price on eBay . When I first received them in the mail and tried to slip my feet in, I panicked....my feet were WAY too wide to fit (either that or the sandals were abnormally narrow) and they were literally hanging over the sides. "How do I lose weight on my feet?" I thought. Yeah, I know, it was a silly thought, but hey, I was desperate. There was no way I was gonna let these sandals go without wearing them! Nevertheless, I put them in the box and forgot about them for the next month. However, the next time I slipped them on my feet, I was in shock: the sandals fit perfectly, my feet looked normal, and it was as if the sandals were made for me. I don't know what happened, I'm just glad that it did! 'Cause you know, as the old saying goes, "if the shoe fits, wear it!" Well, I most definitely intend to.
