Unpacking Surprise

This is not what I'm wearing today.  Today, I'm sitting at home working from my couch, dealing with some annoying summer allergies.  Could this year be any worse for allergies?  Really?  In any event, I wore this last night to go out to dinner with Fella, his mom and his cousin, who is visiting from Colorado.  We went to one of my favorite restaurants here, a tasty Mediterranean place up in Andersonville.  I love a weeknight dinner out, complete with pomegranate sangria, tasty food and a free box of homemade baklava.

This outfit is pretty plain, which is the norm for me in this weather, but I have to point out the shoes.  I took a break from my work yesterday and finally got back to unpacking.  We had a pretty big pile of boxes in our dining room, and there's about 6 or 7 boxes left in the guest bedroom, so I'm finally making a dent in those.  I unpacked a box marked "Anne's old clothes and shoes" and stumbled upon these sandals.  I completely forgot about them, even though it's only been a couple months since I boxed them up.  Before that, it had been at least a year since I'd worn them.  They're not the most comfortable shoes, so I remember why I haven't worn them, but aren't they cute?

Jude can't stand the heat

  1. Your outfit is cute, love the sandals. And can I say, I love the pics where Jude is pic crashing best. That dog is adorabibble.

  2. Jude is so cute. I have to ask really really the baklava was free : )  ?  Oh my gosh it's been years and years since I've had any!  

  3. It really was free! We left right as they were closing, and they had a few
    boxes left, so they were just giving it away :) It's so good when it's

  4. Lucky : ) perfect timing!

  5. Those are cute! Gotta love those unpacking surprises! Mmmm baklava...I LOVE baklava!

  6. They are really cute!  What makes them so uncomfortable?

    I hope the allergies get better soon!  

  7. They pinch my toes! I have this problem with all peep-toes it seems :(

    Those shoes are adorable, but peep toes aren't great for my piggies either.  I usually line them with moleskin though and that helps some.

    Also, pomegranate sangria?  I'm soooo jealous.

  9. very cute shoes...peep toes also tend to squ-sh my toes into pain!! Was it reza's you went for that place!

  10. the sandals are cute.  I think the heat has been hard on my sinuses.  Have had killer headaches a couple of nights this week.  The dinner sounds yummy.  Hope you are feeling better soon.

  11. I've had similar headaches, though I thought it was dehydration from the heat.  Hope your headaches are gone!

  12. It wasn't Reza's, though they're pretty tasty too.  We were right next door at Andie's!

  13. I'll have to try the moleskin trick!

  14. That blue-green is a great color on you, Anne.  It looks so cool and fresh.

  15. I always try to tell myself that if i've forgotten about something for months, and they are the seasonal months for said item, that when i find it again, i should just get rid of it.
    but i wont.

    hope you feeling better and can enjoy the rest of your weekend!
