Can it be summer soon?

Okay - I know I've been complaining that it's not wintery enough, but really... if Mother Nature is going to dilly dally on the subject, I think we should just go back to summer.

Because, I just got a new shoe delivery and I've got four** new pairs to show off...  there's only one problem.. they are mostly sandals...
It all started with these yellow ones. I've been the hunt for the perfect yellow wedges for about two years now. It's been my goal to have summer wedges in every colour (to go with all my sundresses). Sure I could wear a neutral... but what's the fun in that? Yellow was the only colour left (with the exception of orange, but I'm not a huge orange person). But it couldn't just be any yellow - it had to be the right shade of mustard. And I wanted a nice looking wedge - not too high, not too clunky. I saw these one last month and they fit the bill perfectly (even more so because of the snakeskin texture.. I'm a sucker for snakeskin)

But... being that they were on ebay.. and you save on shipping when you buy more than one... I had to get more...
A nice white leather dress sandal can take you from work to play and back again - every girl should have at least one pair (and I didn't!).

I could have stopped there... but you know me too well...
I've been eyeing these ones for a looooooooooooong time. It was the last pair in stock, so it was now or never. I'm so glad I chose now. Look at that beautiful heel
I'm a total sucker for a funky heel.

And in concession to the time of year, I had to get just one pair that I could wear as soon as they arrived
A black suede shootie, like the white dress sandal is one of those "wear almost anywhere" shoes.


** I feel no shame at buying four pairs of shoes at once. All four pairs cost me what one pair would have in the store. If you're looking for shoe deals, I can recommend this ebay seller. They buy up old stock, liquidations, that kind of thing... and sell them at deep discounts. Just make sure you read the listings well, they also sell defects (some very minor and you can get REALLY good deals then), some mismatched sizes, and some used (though always gently).

Cute shoes! You make me long for flip flop weather too. It's been spring-like here until today and today it is freezing and I'm not liking it. At. All. A slight chill is nice-ice is not.

I am slowly adding more shoes to my collection. When I worked in retail I had over 100 pair of shoes/boots. Some only matched 1 outfit! Now I am down to 30 pairs. I am sure you have way more than I ever did!! I so get your addiction.

Nice! You'd have pretty wet feet here in those sandals though. The "sun" kind of came out today long enough for a dry walk. Yay!

Wow, you really scored big! That fancy wooden heal is a beauty, for sure. I think the yellow sandals might be my favorite; they sure are cute.
