what i want today: darling blue shoes!

the first sign of spring is officially here: the january anthropologie catalog arrived in my mailbox yesterday. you'll be seeing bits and pieces from it for a few days to come, as it's the first catalog i've seen from them in months that had me swooning.'s love.

but today, what i'm loving are the '40s-style pin-up heels they were showing off all over the place. in particular, these gorgeous blue two-piece mary janes by frye ($148). now, i'll admit these aren't a style i'd normally go for, but it's the color that has me head over heels. i'm dying to sport these with any number of darling spring dresses, or really, even shorts. but they don't have to sit in the closet until may...i'm thinking they'd be completely stunning with tights, a mini-dress and a long jacket, or something along those lines. really, the perfect dash of color for a grey winter day.

plus, i just got a very timely email from this morning, telling me that i need to "get on board" with the tights + peep toes trend. hey...who am i to argue?
