Spring Flats & Sneakers

Normally I would be on the lookout for cute spring sandals (heeled peep toes, platform pumps, wedge espadrilles, etc.), but foot = still broken, so for now I need to play it safe with flats and sneakers.  The crazy thing is that I’ve never really been a “shoe girl”, but since I”ve only been able to wear one shoe I keep seeing shoes I want and can’t have … yet.  I guess we really do always want what we can’t have.  And after unpacking and organizing the closets I realized that my husband owns more pairs of shoes than I do and that is just wrong – lol.

Darn This Broken Foot

(A quick catch-up:  We moved to Portland, OR [woo hoo!] and one week later I broke my foot.)

I am super lucky that the bottom of the fracture is aligning nicely and I didn’t have to have a cast or surgery.

But for the next two – three months I am stuck sporting a so-far-away-from-stylish cast shoe.

My foot just HAS to heal FAST because I saw these shoes today and I want them oh so badly.

Awesome, right?  My left foot would be soooo jealous.

Reader Discount – Whooga Uggs!

What could be more comfy [for your feet] than boots that feel as warm and cozy as slippers? Actually, they are warmer and cozier than slippers – and you can wear them outside!  I’m talking about Whooga Ugg Boots.  [Not to be confused with the UGG (all caps) brand … ugg is a style … read more here.]  Made from sheepskin and lined with Thermofleece, the boots conform to the shape of your foot, keep your feet warm, don’t get smelly, and even help increase circulation.  Can your slipper or boot do all of that?

To be completely honest, I never really liked ugg boots.  But now you can find all kinds of styles and colors and I think if you pair them with leggings and and a long sweater, anyone can rock an ugg.

If you sign up for Whooga’s newsletter, you get entered in their monthly drawing for FREE BOOTS!  You can also follow them on Twitter, where their latest giveaway asked fans what was their favorite Whooga Ugg color and why.  What are you waiting for?!

In addition to all the giveaways, Whooga is offering a special discount for Furious Shirley readers – 10% off your orders for the next week!  Just visit Whooga Ugg Boots and use code 963FURIOUS !  XO

A Few Fall Fashion Faves

There was a slight chill in the air this morning.  It didn’t last long, but it was there … fall is coming.  It is my favorite season and with good reason.  Cool and crisp jacket-optional weather, hot coffee instead of iced, leaves crunching under my boots, snuggling instead of sweating, and the clothes – oh the clothes.  Here are a few of my favorites, and expect more soon.

The boots.  The boots.  I love these boots.  Urban Outfitters.  They also come in a maroon/navy option and will look great with just about anything – like this dress from Zara.  It looks so comfy.  I think I’d pair it with an oversized cardigan, thick tights, and boots.

How great is this cowl neck tunic from ASOS?!  Loving the plaid, loving the neck … makes a simple tunic something special.

Totally rad halter vest from Topshop.  This backless number would work great with a fitted tuxedo shirt or even a turtleneck.

And let’s not forget about the men in our lives.  I can definitely see Michael rocking these new styles from Keds at Bloomingdales.

Baby Loves Her Shoes

The other day I took Ava to the beach.  She loves the water and especially the sand.  We splashed around, dug holes in the sand, and smiled – a lot!

On our way back to the Jeep, we stopped at the playground so Ava could run around and swing [and hopefully dry off and ditch some of the sand].  When it was time to go, she didn’t want to leave [big surprise] and started to throw quite the tantrum.  She did that thing where she arched her back and let her legs go limp when I tried to pick her up, and I dropped one of the bags I was hauling.  When I put her down to pick up the tote, she took off running for the slide.  I caught her and started walking to the car.  She was sobbing and kept trying to say something, but I couldn’t understand.  I thought she was having a worse than normal reaction to leaving, but maybe she was just tired.  I still couldn’t figure out what it was she was yelling, and then she took a deep breath, looked at me through her teary eyes and said, “shoe, mommy”.  I looked down at her feet and saw one of her shoes was missing.  It must have fallen off when she went for the slide.  As soon as I acknowledged it and headed back to pick it up, the tears stopped and she was all happy-go-lucky again.  Baby loves her shoes.
