There’s nothing that is not awesome about campus in the spring and summer. There are trees, and flowers, and grassy expanses. There’s more parking close to either the library or one’s office, and the line-ups for morning coffee are much more bearable. Also, when one is rewarding oneself for having done a good pocket of work, the Sally Ann around the corner is over-flowing with beautiful things—and there are no students around to snap up the treasures. (I’ll be featuring some of today’s finds over the next couple of weeks.)
In short, today started so well. Then all of a sudden, it was 3:30 and I had less than an hour to do a zillion errands and drop Fuzzy Roommate at “Canine and Kitty Camp,” where he’ll chill for the long weekend while A-Dubs-Hubs and I head out to see the constellations reveal themselves one star at a time.
Anyway, let’s use our imaginations so these shorts appear as crisp and non-baggy-in-the-front-and-unrumply-in-the-crotchal-region as they did this morning before the hour-long drive to Dog Camp. (And while we’re at it, let’s imagine I have a bitchin’ camera and a back-drop that highlights but does not blend into my very pale skin.)
I was trying to mix stripes as I’ve seen much more daring style bloggers do, but thought I’d start with a relatively safe combination. From afar, before I added the pink shoes and the green cami, I looked like a waiter. I kind of wish I’d worn a darker cami, though, as things could really use some more drama, no?
In all seriousness, things really were slightly better this morn; but even now, I remain excited about these shoes. In an effort to preserve the balls of my feet, I bought these flat platform beauties last summer. I’ve decided they can take the place of heels with shorts and skirts. Because flat shoes with long shorts or knee-length skirts make my legs look about an inch long.

So, what about your feet? When, where, and how do they get a break from heels?
