This summer, find your fun in cute new styles from Crocs.com.Okay yes, so this is a food blog and here I am writing about shoes. But the great thing about writing a personal blog is that I am the master of my own destiny. If I choose to write about shoes, there’s no one to tell me I can’t. I am my own editor in chief, my own boss, my own CEO, my own creative director and my own head writer. I’m actually quite an exacting task master, so it’s not as easy as you might think. I am always putting pressure on myself to do more and I don’t give myself nearly enough time off. But I do allow myself some leeway in content creation and so I allowed myself to write about shoes on a food blog. Besides, they are REALLY cute shoes, don’t you think?
I will be the first to admit that I had to challenge my preconceived notions when this opportunity arose. The only kind of Crocs that I ever knew of were the comfortable, colourful clogs they’ve made so famous. I simply had no idea that they also made wedges, flats and loafers too. And I was not alone in my ignorance either. I posted a photo of my Leigh Graphic Wedges (Crocs.com) on Instagram the other day and everyone was surprised they were Crocs. And jealous too, I daresay! The shoes are stylish and fun, and so perfect for summer. I am delighted with them and happily disabused of the notion that there is only one kind of Croc. We’ve been having an unusually warm, sunny spring here in Portland and I’ve been so excited to wear these cute wedges around my new hometown to really test them out. But as Murphy’s Law would have it, almost the moment the Crocs arrived, the weather turned cool and rainy. Still, they are too cute to let sit in my closet until the sun makes an appearance again. If you are waiting for sunshine to do anything in Portland, you might never leave your house. So my bright and fun Croc wedges and I are going for a walk. Care to join us and see them in action?
The warm weather in a damp climate means gardens are incredibly lush and the grass is incredibly green at the moment. The flowers in my neighbourhood are amazing! And my lawn is growing like crazy.
One of Portland’s many nicknames is Rose City. I moved here in November and I had no idea why. Until now. The roses are everywhere and they grow so beautifully. So do the azaleas, the poppies, and the irises and almost every other flower!
I see these orange poppies everywhere right now and I am very taken with them.
Why is there an old typewriter in someone’s garden? I have no idea but it actually looks kind of cool! So what is the takeaway here? Well, not only are the Crocs from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection really fun, but they are also amazingly comfortable. They also have an easy on-and-off catch. It looks like a buckle but takes far less time to do up. I am really pleased with them and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase some of their other fun styles. When the sunny weather returns, I will be out and about in these quite a bit, I expect.
