so clever

hooray for fridays and getting through another week and warm weather and bare legs. this weekend is supposed to be flippin awesome. and i say, bring it on.
so i got these sandals in the mail from clever nettle and i immediately put them on my feet. i came in from my run, saw the box inside the door, opened it, and ripped off my sweaty socks, and PUT THEM ON MY FEET. they are seriously my new favorite shoes. so very comfortable and accommodating enough for my hobbit hooves. they are super fantastic. i even painted my toenails for the occasion. no joke. it's been almost 2 years since the last time. this is big, i tell ya, BIG.
siloam has loads of dogwood trees around. we even have a festival dedicated to them (and by 'dedicated', i do mean that it's a chance to have tons of booths of really bad crafts and even worse food for a weekend all over downtown). but they're just so pretty. especially when they line the creek in the spring time.
now, go have a good one :)

that skirt dress is bom dot com. And i love those sandals, glad they are on your feet!!! I had a similar pair of navy ones last summer and wore them to death.

Perfect chill summer day outfit. I think the run of good weather is over here now...we have a chilly weekend ahead of us.

Enjoy your weekend and pretty dogwood trees.

I do very much like those shoes. And I do adore a good cheesy festival! And lucky you, bare legs! And YES, FRIDAY! Gosh, it seems the weeks go by faster and faster...oh dear!

this is really amazing. I don't know what else to say but I love it. I'm glad your sandals are so comfortable. I laughed that you called them hobbit hooves.

Your dogwood festival sounds like the azalea festival in Norfolk, Va. They have a parade, a beauty queen thing, just a lot of weird nonsense. It's really just a NATO celebration. Anyways, you look gorgeous! Those sandals are just too cute:)

Those sandals are SO RAD. After reading your post I immediately ran over to etsy (well, you know... digital running.) in hopes they were from a handmade shop and that I could get me a pair - only to be heartbroken that they're darn old one-of-a-kind vintage! Wah waaah.

the dogwoods are always my favorite sign of spring in the Ozarks and seeing them already in your area suggests that it will be too late by the time I get to the lake next weekend. I am so jealous of these saltwater sandals. I've been shopping a pair in navy.

I'm really into nude-colored sandals. Cute top. I love it!

Oh man, this is such a perfect casual outfit. I fully intend to recreate it on the next hot day. :)
