I have very fond memories as a child of snow cones. I loved snow cones, and never one to be normal, I really loved unique flavors. Last night Nashville got a light dusting of slush. Its very snow cone-esque and today's outfit reminded me of Tiger's Blood flavor. I think it was grape and cherry and strawberry all mixed together but it was my favorite. It turned my tongue and lips a deep dark red and I loved it. In fact, I still love it even though my taste in frozen treats has only grown more dignified as I have aged. I spend my summers longing for gelato and the love nest at Mr. Snow in Waco, TX.
This weekend I stopped by Clothing Xchange because I had a gift certificate that I was itching to spend. Of course, I skipped the clothing (oh it was so painful) and went straight to the shoes. I tried on at least five pairs of shoes and walked out with two pairs (spending under $10). The ones I am wearing today are a black, brown and tan Florsheim low pumps. They make me feet look so dignified. Don't worry, I brought my rain boots to work so that I can stomp around outside in those instead of my new shoes.
Also new, are the tights. I had an entirely different outfit envisioned for the super bowl party I ended up attending, but wore something completely different. The first option required tights, and since I didn't want to wear solid black tights and the only other color I had were my suffocating purple ones and blue (which I was not cheering for the colts), I needed some with pizzaz. Thank you Urban Outfitters and your 2/$20 special on tights. These are actually incredibly comfortable, and not suffocating (I also bought a bigger size! woot!). I will say this though, I can't wear something too short with these, I feel like going above the knee and seeing the flower pattern on the tights totally stretched out is not flattering.
