Those look like you....

That is exactly what my Mom would have said about the shoes that I bought yesterday.

It has come to the time of the winter where I am dying for the dawn of Spring.  I need sun.  I need warm weather.  I need blue skies and a cool breeze that requires a cute trench coat.  And, I needed a new spring pair of shoes.  This was the time of year that Mom and I made our first venture to the mall in search of something that said spring.  We were usually looking for a spring accessory, a new bags, some new shoes, or something to replace the drab of the winter.

Well, yesterday, similar to something like a nicotine attack for a smoker, I bought a new pair of shoes.  I needed them.  And, I needed them at that exact moment.  So, I found my way to Cole Haan in search of a new pair.  I needed something that would be flexible as far as utility but that said spring to me....And, I found them.  And, knowing my Mom the way that I did.  I knew exactly what her comment would have been, "those look like you."  Now let me translate for the rest of you...."Yes Ann, those are ok, I wouldn't ever wear them.  But, I know you will love them, so buy them and be done with it."  So, here are my spring new shoes....by the way, there were only 2 pair left in the country in my size....and this dear sweet salesgirl at the Plaza store who found them for me.

    These are cute and they do look like you! My mom used to word things in just the exact same way. Sometimes, it infuriated me, because, inevitably, I would say "What does that mean?" Enjoy them...I'm jealous!
