We're having our usual May drizzly weather and the rain and chilly wind is back, making wearing all those summer sandals pretty much an impossibility. So today it was a photoshoot inside the house with the twinkle-lights on and summery peonies by my bedside to cheer up a gloomy afternoon. I love quiet indoor photoshoots for the obvious reasons - there's no one watching you test out poses and faces but most of all, it's warm. Ben and I have been making warm dinners every night to keep the chilly weather at bay and snuggling up with tea and blankets. Sometimes it's nice to have a little spell of bad weather to give you some indoor time that doesn't fill you with guilt.
And now, let's talk about the important part of this post... these shoes from ShoeDazzle! I recently wrote about their great collection and broke down and bought this pair, the Lou, and they arrived today. Oh my gosh am I in love! This shoe choice was totally out of my comfort zone but I am thrilled - the retro chunky heel? The patterned bow? Perfection! I was also surprised at a) how cheap they were ($30 after my 25% new member discount), b) how well they fit, and c) how gorgeous they are in person (prettier than on the web). ShoeDazzle is having a memorial day discount sale going on as well as their regular new member discount, which means that clearance is an extra 30% off and regular priced shoes are an extra 20% off. Start looking now as their shoes often sell out quickly. The sale runs from tomorrow, May 23-May 27. I'll just be over here just rejoicing about these gorgeous kicks. Let me know if you end up getting anything! I'd love to see them on you.
