While I’ve enjoyed this shoe-a-day project, it has caused me to turn a bit more critical eye on my shoes.  Several times, I’ve blogged a pair only to decide that was the last time I’d wear them.  Nothing like a good camera with decent lighting to show you just how poorly you treat your footwear.

As much as I don’t want to admit it, school is back in session, football is about to kick-off, and it’s about time to start pulling out the transition clothes.  A good shirt-dress is a great way to move from summer to fall – a plaid or other less-summery pattern conjures up images of corn mazes and bonfires.  But, a light-weight fabric and the shorter length keeps you cool when you live in Georgia where it will still be 108 degrees until October 15.
