shoe per diem jan 28, 2011 – applegreen and furry

30 Jan

The light applegreen hue of El Naturalistas have always been one of my favourite hues. If the shoes aren’t red they should be green, preferably applegreen. I would love to have a pair of Oxfords in this green hue, sadly they no longer seem to make those in that colour.

But. I did stumble over these clogs (Iggdrasil model, but not the swirl ones I already have, this swirl is the same as in my boots instead. Lotsa swirl going on), in just that much coveted hue at online sale, by accident. Very happy accident. They arrived swiftly and they are grand. Tad higher on the ankle, would probably not be perfect for someone with high ankles.

Little Loaf also totally approved of the clogs, he even claimed the empty box as his little throne.

Now I can’t wait for spring! And the wearing of green (the lace socks are from Sock Dreams, droolworthy place of socks galore). There’s a new clog on the block, his name is Apple Green.


shoe per diem jan 27, 2011 – red and bread

30 Jan

In contrast to Tuesday – good mood, bad weather – Thursday unfortuntely proved to be just the opposite – a crap mood day (and due to other people’s crap behaviour), lovely weather – but there was nice lunch at a favourite cafĂ©/sourdough bakery Gamla Enskede Bageri. And the buying of bread.

Yes, the love for red runs in the family. My mother has a red jacket and sensible winter boots (brand unknown), me I have a sensible jacket and red boots (brand obviously very known).

28 January 2011 // a new trend?

30 Jan

Last time I posted on SPD – and I am ashamed to admit it was a few days ago now – I uploaded a photo of some abandoned shoes I had come across that day, remember?

Well it happened again. What is it with people leaving their shoes behind?

On a rather dreary, weatherwise, January day in Stockholm, these were the things I was grateful for –

:: my always lovely red El Naturalista Iggdrasil red tall boots,
:: my very yarny, perky outfit that kept me warm and happy,
:: the purchase of new yarn (to feed my newfound amigurumi bug)
:: the freshly squeezed Brämhults fruit smoothie (peach and strawberry). The juice for which I missed the train and had to wait on a bitterly cold and windy station for some 20 minutes longer. I think it was worth it.
