Outfit: Shoeper Challenge #61 and a Scorcher of a Day






Hush Puppies Ursa

It is boiling today. I went for a light cotton strappy dress and short sleeve cotton shrug and added a belt to nip in the waist a bit. I have just turned up the air conditioning (and I requested it went on in the first place – not like me at all) and I’m still warm.


Now that I’ve quit the 30x30 I can get on with the important business of saving my shoes. These sandals are new – courtesy of the lovely people at Spartoo. They are by Hush Puppies and are super comfy. The soles are all squishy, like walking around on foam all day. They remind me of a pair of sandals I had when I was about 8 or 9. That pair was by K’s Shoes, also red, and had super cushioned soles. They had a small heel (very exciting when you’re at middle school) and I can remember wearing them all the time as they were so comfy.


As long as the young man doesn’t change his mind about not wanting a barbeque tonight, I will be going to my gym class as usual.

  1. Lovely outfit!! Love all the red details bringing it together, those shoes sound very comfy! The dress is nice, but I would be wary of wearing it in this heat, due to getting too hot in black clothes!

  2. Thanks! And yes, you are quite right - walking to the shop at dinner time I was slightly regretting going for all black.
