Live Real. Eat Real.

The Ultimate First Sign of Spring

No, it’s not that the pussywillow tree right outside of the kitchen is about to explode with beautiful, fragrant blooms. No, it’s not that my daffodils are coming up. It’s because I wore these today:

Pink Crocs!!

Yes! I was able to wear a pair of my beloved Crocs today!! I love these things. My daughter says they’re the most hideous shoes she’s ever laid eyes on (that’s what I get for raising a snobbish fashionista), but I adore them. They are comfortable, durable and WASHABLE. And, by golly, they come in such a dazzling array of absolutely eye-watering colors that if they won’t coordinate or compliment your wardrobe, they’ll certainly make your feet stand out.

I have four pair of the Crocs Beach model, pictured above. Fuschia, Lavender, Kelly Green and Celery (funny, I could have sworn they were hot pink, purple, bright green and light green, but what do I know – I’m just some middle-aged woman with a penchant for shoes). So you can imagine my utter delight – and my husband’s resignation – when they began making all sorts of shoes…and how my Crocs collection has grown.

Crocs PatraI own a pair of the Patra…

Crocs Cleo…and my absolute favorite so far, the Cleo…

Crocs Mammoth…and even a pair of these, the Mammoth (okay, so I wore Crocs all winter, too, but it’s just not the same).

Then today, browsing their site, I saw THESE:

Crocs AdaraThe Adara! They are cute, cute, cute!

That sound you hear is my husband groaning while he tries to hide my credit cards.
