Though everyone and their moms are keeping a positive mindset about spring rearing its beautiful head post-polar vortex, we couldn’t help but feel a little defeated every day this past week when we stepped outside to perpetually nippy temperatures, grey skies, and occasional snowfall. “Hang in there!” said the Monday morning news guy, “we’re so close!”
On most days, we’d react by shutting off the television and turning our attention to our floor-to-ceiling windows, meant to let plenty of sunshine in to start the day. Our eyes would fall to the floor in gloomy realization that there is no sun, only large clouds and cruel winds. A single tear would fall from each one of our eyes (that’s four tears in total, BTW). But, today was different — when the anchor chirped with his usual positivity, Danielle and I jumped up and squealed, “HOORAY 4 SPRING!!!” as 5th Dimension’s Age of Aquarius began to play in the background.
As you’ve probably figured out by now, none of the above events happened. That story was just a long and metaphorical way to describe Monday’s very real reality: shopping for shoes. The aforementioned newscaster was actually a Call It Spring sales associate bringing us boxes of parties for our feet, the squeal went more like “HOORAY 4 CALL IT SPRING!!!” and Age of Aquarius was actually a fellow shopper whispering “What is wrong with those two?” to a friend.
Unfortunately, the cold weather wasn’t part of the façade, but we don’t care! We now have fun, warm-weather footwear and graphically superimposed tulips at our disposal!!! Who needs real spring when you’ve got CALL IT SPRING SHOES and SPRING FLOWERS IN PIXEL FORM?! The answer is nobody.
Anyway, we picked two *very* wearable styles to show y’all today: white open-toed mules and minimal flat sandals. We love the extra height of the former and the comfort factor of the latter – plus, they both look g-r-e-a-t with full-length pants, especially compared to the frumpy boots we’re used to dragging through the snow. Overall, we’re soops happs with how these looks turned out. So soops happs that we decided to shimmy distastefully in Dani’s living room!!! Check out the video below to watch us in slow motion (and potentially cringe from the awkwardness):
Was that life changing or was that life changing? Let us know in the comments section below, along with your personal cold weather vice!
