NEW SHOE PLATTER

10-19-09 5

How cool is the sun in these pictures?  I'd like to say I'm really that good, but reality is that is was
purely accidental.  Nonetheless, it's pretty darn cool.

I FINALLY, after months of needing them, got new running shoes today!  Yay!  We are lucky enough to have an amazing athletic shoe store in town where the employees actually KNOW something about feet and shoes and fit you with the perfect shoe.  Even better, they guarantee the fit and will exchange them for a different pair is they don't work after a couple of weeks.  Cool, right?

So, I was able to take advantage of the beautiful fall day and went for a nice run.  It's been so long - it's gonna take a while to build up my endurance again.  Oh, well - I'll enjoy every minute of it!

After the run, I walked Iggy, showered, dressed and finished a chicken and rice soup I had going.  From scratch even - whole chicken and all!  Then, I lounged on the couch and worked away on some design work I had to get done.  Of all the purchases I've made in the last year (or even more), a laptop was by far the BEST, BEST, BEST!  I'm so happy I bit the bullet and just got one!  Then, I was off to an evening meeting.  The perfect Monday, no?

(For those of you who asked what I got, I got a Dell Inspirion.  As much as I LOVE Macs, they're just too expensive for me right now and all of my software is PC based.  Either way, I totally love my new laptop and would recommend it hands down.)

As for the outfit, I pulled out a favorite skirt from last year and my new boots.  With a little extra money burning a hole in my pocket, I found these shoes at the mall and couldn't resist!  I love that they're ankle high without being tight or heeled.  And they were only $30!  Me loves!


Skirt: JCP, $20ish - Tee: AA, $22 - Scarf: Vintage, Mom's - Cardigan: H&M, $25ish - Belt: Gap Outlet, $5 - Boots: Wanted, $30

  1. I bought my Dell Inspiron four, almost five years ago on a Christmas deal ($299 for the computer, Windows XP and a nice printer). I have lugged it back and forth to school every day since then, used it to type up almost every paper I've ever written, conduct all the research for said papers, taken it across the county with me a few times via car and airplane, dropped it, spilled stuff on it, etc, etc, etc... They're indestructible! In fact, I'm so pleased with it that I'm getting the exact same thing this year (I've maxed out the memory on mine and need a slight upgrade).

    Sorry, nothing fashion-related... just had to enthuse about my fav machine to a fellow lover. :)

  15. I love the jaunty little scarf and skirt!

    We have a MAC, they're great and all, but you most certainly pay a high premium for the name. I don't know if we'll get another one again.

  19. I need new running shoes too!! Hubby and I are training for a marathon (eek!! so crazy), and my shoes are getting a bit worn out (causing me some arch issues).

  21. that scarf sets everything together.
    great choice.

  22. So, you buying running shoes reminds me of how pathetic I am. I was actually just thinking I have no real running shoes (skate shoes with patent and leopard print do not count!). I need to invest...function before fashion (sometimes).
