Wishing for Wednesday: Dr. Martin's

   Welcome to this week's Wishing for Wednesday: Dr. Martin's edition! Now, I know what some of you are thinking. Why?? But for some reason that I can't possibly begin to explain, I am completely in love with Dr. Martins. They just seem so comfortable and well made. While I currently don't own a pair, they could very well end up on my birthday list. 
I love the leather of these boots. As a plus, they are super versatile.

The antique inspired style is genius.

Oxfords are one of my favorite types of shoes, and the color of this pair is perfect.

This pair is my favorite! I don't usually go for shoes this bold, but these boots are just too perfect!

Style Spotlight: Sonia Rykiel

Fun and fresh. This is the alliteration I will use to describe Sonia Rykiel's designs. Her work is always amazing, and the Spring 2012 collection is not an exception. I could go on and on about all the reasons I love Sonia Rykiel, but the main reason is that she is such an incredible woman. Knowing her story gives her designs a whole knew meaning. Do some searcher about her; I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

My picks from the Spring 2012 collection:

Look of the Day: Feeling Blue

   Blue is my favorite color. This is not a secret by any stretch of the imagination, but at times it can be a bit of a problem. For example last night I was trying to figure out what to wear out to dinner and was having difficulty putting together an outfit. This was because at least 85% of my wardrobe is blue or some variation of navy. While I managed to pull together this monochromatic look which I like, I think I am going to make conscious effort to avoid purchasing blue items. At least, for a while. Do you think this is a good idea?
P.S. The sun is casting a weird yellowish glow on most of the pictures. Sorry! Also, I have no idea why the picture of my shoes is sideways.

Look of the Day: Sunny

   The sun has finally come out! To celebrate, I'm wearing one of my happiest outfits. A fun floral dress, a bright yellow jacket a found a few weeks ago on deep discount, and (although you can't see it) a Beatles t-shirt. All three of which can instantly brighten my mood.
P.S. When we took these pictures the wind was blowing like crazy!
