Details  I found some adorable new shoes for a steal and couldn’t wait to throw them on directly after returning home. Truth be told I eyed these at Nordy’s several weeks ago when they were $128 and was happy to find them in my size at just $45. (Sweet!) Good things come to those who wait and there’s always a great sale or coupon which is why I never buy things at full price.

I also finally picked up some of that fun crackle polish that’s popping up everywhere right now. I got the last color available which was actually a happy accident. I keep wanting to layer it over yellow for a little Husky spirit!  This week I layered it over a neutral metallic shade, but it turns out it was too neutral for an undercoat. Husband thought my polish was just chipping (Well I never! I thought he knew me better than that!). Next time I plan to layer it over black or grey for a more defined, crackly look.

I can’t stay away from these gorgeous hydrangeas in front of my building and am tempted to take some snippers and give them a new home on my dining table (I won’t, but I want to…).  Ah, lovely.
