Hi, all -- I am safely home and trying to adjust to Canadian temperatures again. (Brrrr!!!) It wasn't as warm as we'd expected in Israel but it was certainly warmer than it is here, and bonus -- no snow! Alas, here the stuff continues to fall. But Saturday dawned fresh and sunny and I was commuting on my errands by car, not foot -- so I risked an outfit starring my Tel Aviv purchase, a new pair of bone coloured booties!
These are beauties, leather and leather lined, handmade in Israel and very comfortable. Better yet, they were on sale because in Isreal, of course, these count as "winter" boots. (HA!!!!!) And for Israelis, it is "end of season."
Whereas, as I explained to the lovely, thoughtful, warm, and just plain FUN Shevia (meet this woman if you get a chance; she's brilliant), here in Canada, I should have two more good months of wear from these babies before I need to retire them until autumn. I am so grateful to Shevia for taking me shopping and showing me the sights! I had wanted a pair of light coloured booties for a long time, and these are the perfect pair.
So. I have put the puffer coat away, and I'm starting to wash and put away the cashmere. But this sweater remained in the "wear" pile because of its fresh spring colour. I can trick myself into thinking it is spring even if it is not, no? Ditto for the creamy flannel shirt, the jeans, and now, the booties.
