A fun thing to do on a Saturday

donut

Every once-in-a-Saturday a friend and I do donut runs to Blackbird Donuts in the South End.

I recommend it but for the love of Laura Palmer, don’t go at 10:30AM because that is when I go and if it is fucking busy I will FREAK. IT. OUT.

*A donut run is when you put on athletic garb (sweatband encouraged) and trot to a donutery. You must run at least 20% of the way or it doesn’t count.

 

I bought yellow shoes and they’re changing my life

Daffodil yellow slides from H&M

Do you have a power shoe because I do.

I was shopping for black pants, which is the most practical shopping you can do, and after an uninspiring 15 minutes in the fitting room I was on my way out of the store, ready and willing to hang up my shopping bag for the day.  I passed the shoe section, which at this H&M is really just a wall of shoes.  Amidst the brown loafers and low-heeled black boots hung an out of place pair of summery yellow slides.  One pair, my size.

I don’t need yellow sandals.  (Nobody needs yellow sandals.)  I almost put them back three times.  But I’m glad I didn’t and I will tell you why, Jim:

I LOVE YELLOW THINGS. So far yellow has been an underutilized color in the fashion world, so these shoes were a real diamond-in-the-rough situation. And the instant I put them on I become a free spirit who has plans of traveling through Europe but for now lives on a coastal surf village in southern California. For me, that’s an important quality in a shoe.

More importantly, they remind me that I’m not a practical person, screw the black pants.  From a distance, they make it look like I’m wearing bananas on my feet. I look down and think, ‘These are hilarious. I’m hilarious.’ Get a power shoe.
