seeing red

Happy St. Patrick's Day! It's been a productive Monday so far—the best way to start the week. I'm still reeling from the jaw-dropping start to House of Cards season two (just caught up Sunday), but otherwise feeling rested and focused. There's a new bouquet of bright pink flowers on the counter, fresh sheets on the bed (the best feeling!), and some Whole Foods treats stocked in the kitchen. Cartons of jumbo corn nuts and salted caramels aside, I'm not really allowing myself to shop right now—but when I do, the footwear department is the first place I'll unleash the plastic. A show-stopping shoe elevates your entire look—even when wearing the same jeans and tee you always have. Sophia Webster agrees. I was skimming the April InStyle (I think?!) yesterday and caught her twelve-styles-strong spring collection for J.Crew (I know, everyone flipped out over this during fall fashion week ... but it isn't even available until May and wearing anything other than Bean Boots just became a practical possibility again). Inspired by the attention-grabbing aesthetic, I cut to my closet and found something disturbing: I have zero red heels, flats or sandals. There are so many Sophia Webster-esque patterns and designs also conspicuously missing, but red is an attainable kind of flashy I should already own (and a color I definitely want to wear with the chartreuse shift I bought on sale a few weeks ago). If you're in the same situation, here are a few pairs to fill the void: one, two, three, fourin my dreams. And because today toasts all things GREEN, read what is says about you if the shamrock shade's your fave (like me) here!
