Well, I don’t know about you, but over here in The Midlands Spring has finally sprung for sure – the sun has been shining, the sky is blue, the cherry trees are all in bloom. It’s blinkin’ lovely truth be told and hasn’t half improved my mood! I’ve mentioned on several occasions before how badly I suffer from SAD, and all this brightness and daylight and flora and fauna sprouting everywhere is having a really positive effect. I just can’t stop smiling! I almost skipped into work today, and let me tell you, I don’t often do that…! It’s not just me though, everyone I know seems to have had their spirits cheered in the last few weeks and there is a sense of happiness and frivolity and the promise of fun in the air that is just darn infectious.
So infectious, in fact, that even the like of Monsieur Louboutin himself seem to have caught the bug! Just look at these:
Have you ever seen a shoe that summed up the start of Spring quite so well, I ask you? I certainly haven’t! I’m a huge fan of cherry prints anyway as they embody that playful, retro ‘pin up’ style so well, but these are something else – all the style and glamour of the Pigalle style but with a young and fresh makeover, I’m quite frankly bowled over. It’s not often I’d be so enamoured with a white shoe, or even something quite so kitsch (erm, dinosaur handbags aside….) but just how darling is that print against the iconic red sole? I don’t think I could resist going full on 50’s in pairing them with a white sundress and a slick of red lippy, but they’d work equally well with a classic jeans and cami combo. Simply adorable, I think that’s the best adjective for these – adorable.
