Perfect Day for a Picnic

Northeast Kansas was blessed with blissful weather today: sunny and 70s. To celebrate this pleasant change of pace, I took little Igby for a picnic in the park where I debuted a new pair of sandals I acquired recently. Awhile back, my sister-in-law told me about a limited-time shoe sale on 6pm.com with some crazy clearance prices. For about $30, I got four pairs of shoes (including shipping!). Among them were these ankle-wrap sandals. I had been meaning to get a pair like this for awhile, but it didn't happen while the weather was still warm. I wondered if they would still be in style by the time spring rolled around. I reasoned that they are pretty edgy for Kansas, and for less than $10, I've got nothing to lose. I'm really glad I decided to get them. They felt fun and fresh today, and Igby likes to chase them...

Four pairs for thirty dollars? Jealz.

ps: lovely photo, as always. Igby is pretty much the cutest dog on the face of the planet (or at least Kansas, hee).

Today was gorgeous here too. After minus temps last week, I was wearing shorts to work today. Work is not as fun as frolicking in a park with a pug puppy (say it 10X fast) but I'll take this weather anytime!!
Cute shoes...worth the 'investment'.
