Had a lovely evening at dinner – shrimp and grits – yum – it’s amazing the food I now adore that I would never have eaten before moving here. We went to South City Kitchen which is a great restaurant and has a fabulous location in Midtown. I am a little sad that they have now opened a location in Vinings – it makes it a little too close to a ‘chain’ restaurant for my liking, but it is incredibly convenient for me so I can’t complain too much…Lots of fun banter was had, though since starting this blog I do find myself a little preoccupied with it (my OCD – never do things by halves…) and looking for ‘interesting’ things to write about.
One of the hardest things I’ve discovered since starting blogging is what to write when. I’ve surprised myself with how many ideas I have for posts and how varied the subject matter is. MM has warned me against politics though especially with the GOP leadership debates underway and my basic lack of knowledge about US politics. Though now I can vote here I have made a commitment to immerse myself and try to make an informed decision at the polling booth. Anyway until then let’s stick with something a little more trite like clothes and boots!
My shopping habits are those of a tremendously brand loyal consumer, or put another way an addict who can’t say no to a particular brand. So it’s time to lay it out on the table and confess to the the ridiculous number of items that are stashed in my closet. I’ll post on each of these brands in no particular order of preference.
#1 addiction is to Frye boots. I only purchased my first pair about 4 years ago but now I have – **deep breath** – 11 pairs of boots and 1 pair of sandals. I don’t even want to calculate how much that is in dollars. I’ve always loved boots – especially being a Brit where you can wear them 11 months of the year, and since discovering Frye I relish the joy of a great quality pair of leather boots. I wear them with jeans, leggings and skirts – in fact one of my favorite looks is a knee length simple black dress with my fawn Carson pull ons or my Sabrinas in sunrise.
My first pair was a pair of the ubiquitous Carson pull ons in smoke – and I still love how versatile this color is. I think my favorite pair are my Jane tall cuff in black – next on my wish list are these in burnished brown. They are really tall (I never wear them cuffed) and feel very sexy with skinny jeans – great for a night out, only it’s a good job that MM is understanding as he has to pull them off for me every time I wear them – so maybe not the best footwear to wear if you’ve just started dating someone **wink,wink**;)
Okay so now to list them for you (I’m cringing now – it feels like a confessional :0)…again evidence that I rarely buy an item in a single color.
