aching for them

pretty much i have no idea when the last time was when i wanted something so bad. at least something materialistic. since i study jcrew like it's my part time job, i noticed these the second they hit the site. grant's sperry's are my favorite, but i am a sucker for guys in boat shoes. they are THE iconic deck shoe, such a true american original. and now someone AMAZING made them in a platinum gold??? oh my gosh i can't contain my excitement. and ya know what? i think that is such a happy feeling. to love something. whenever you find a song you love and listen to it over and over... one that you love turning up really loud in the car. or even a movie, it's so fun to have favorite movies with parts or scenes that make you laugh or cry every time. the journey of finding yourself and what makes up you is such a cool process (especially because we are always changing). and finding your own personal style fits right into that. this is another reason why i love love love my tumblr pages. posting pictures of what you love helps in finding yourself. i've saving my pennies and can't wait to put these on my feet. one day grant and i will go sailing wearing our sperry's.

Ok I can't stand it anymore! You HAVE to come over! I don't care that you're sick! Rob was supposed to invite you and Grant to come over on Thursday, but I can't get a straight answer from him whether he did it or not, so I will just do it myself. So please come over on Thursday, or we will just come see you! Love you!

OH I saw these shoes too and I also am in LOVE with them. I have been looking for a great pair of boat shoes because like you aid they are a classic and everyone should own a pair. I hadn't found a great pair until I saw these beauts on the site...thank you j. crew!
I too will be saving my pennies.
Aren't they just fab!?

David and Shalynna said...

We are huge fans of Sperry Top Siders. David owns six pairs (he's like a girl)- my favorites are the yellow ones. Back when we were dating I bought Navy ones to fit a toddler. I secretly knew that someday David and I would have a little boy and that we'd have him wear the same shoes that David wore when we dated. Cute story, huh?

Only YOU could pull these platinum gold ones off. You are so stylish. :)

So I met you at Shalynna's baby shower and I couldn't place where I knew your name from-- then I realized it was from your fashion blog that I had gone to from Trudy's blog. haha sorry for the stalking! Anyways, I just thought I'd comment and say how much I LOVE Sperry's. My husband and I bought them for each other on our first Valentine's day and they are my favorite. I might have to ask for these ones for this upcoming Valentine's day!

Niki {A*Lovely*Lifestyle} said...

love them! i bought hubs a pair of sts's last year for christmas and he wears them all the time.(just about the only thing i've bought him that he actually wears.) it's so funny how people have just started noticing them lately. he gets compliments all the time.

i can't wait to see you in these!

ps. i've been out of town all week and got home late last night and to my surprise was greeted by a lovely package! can i just tell you that i LOVE my blossom. it makes me so happy. i can't wait to wear it. i need at least two more to be content...but i can hold off with just this one for now :)
