The Shoes We’ll Dance All Winter In

November 24, 2016

When cold weather kicked in one Saturday afternoon not so long ago and I knew I had to kiss the slippers goodbye, I still kind of fooled it with a sweater instead of a jacket and the white sneakers from summer and felt like doing this forbidden – but totally enjoyed, obviously – act of dressing up. And you thought it’s all about undressing, uhm?


But white sneakers instead of what? Well, this was the question precisely. Now what? Well, now we know what! Block-heel ankle boots. White block-heels ankle boots.

And remember when I had this hunch of cropped flared pants really kicking in, just like the cold weather did? Interesting timing, though, pants! It is anything but super appropriate for you to not cover our feet completely, but I will tell you I am digging you, guys, right now and will tell you why.

The trend with puffer jackets has been escalating for some time now. I love a good puffer jacket because, hey, I love to feel warm and I love a good shape when it’s the biggest one ever. I love the feeling of being on a planet of my own when underneath it. Where I’m allowed to do and be whatever it is I want to do and be.

Yes, to wear a pajama!

Fashion is on our side now more than ever. So, the cropped trousers are here to spice up the puffy look. Socks or no socks, the boots are, apparently, about to hit the dance floor if we are to think that the world is the dance floor. I think so.

I’m still not that convinced about the boots yet, but I have just said something about a dance floor a couple of words earlier and when it is something about a dance floor… I am totally in! For the thrill. They’re off-white and create almost the same effect as off-white sneakers do. Is it an effect or a twist, though? Hm.

The sneakers, however, will always have a special place in our hearts. They are in for the thrill, with us, forever. What? Tell me you don’t feel the same. You might leave them by the door or you might wash and put them in your closet, but you will always want to see them, wear them when nothing else seems to fit. They’re the life line, as Justin would say.

I won’t let go, either.


In your mailbox would be ideal, yet in your e-mail is pretty close, yay!
