Pink- it's like red but not quite

I love me a summer pedi. And rather than the various reds I've worn all summer, I decided to go with a bit of PINK; the color is called "cotton candy baby"! And this is how I like to be- barefooted, with no toe rings and no shoes. Though I do apologize for the swollen feet- all the heat is killing me. There was no angle and no shoe that made my feet look cute today.

And while I am lover of shoes, I am really a shoe hater. The problem is that I would prefer to be barefoot all year long but Midwest winters don't accommodate. So I have a shoe crush, a shoe fetish, my ITSam calls it an obsession. And since I'm a "fat" girl, shoes always fit when no other line of clothing does. I guess I'm just a whirlwind dichotomy.

Thanks to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hostessing Pink Saturdays. And visit fellow pinkie Vintage French Hen, a beautiful and quirky little blog that reminds me of my favorite antique store. I never know what I might find but I'm always delighted with the results and always have a smile. Her blog is so much fun!

Your Pink toes are PERFECT for Pink Saturday! I too LOVE shoes but would rather NOT wear any if I didn't also live in the midwest that has horrid winter! lol

Happy PINK!

I am sooooo lovin' the toes! perfect for a PS! :)
I am in such agreement with you on the 'no shoes' thing..... love to look at them and buy them, don't wanna wear them. grins!
my toes are currently a color called watermelon rind... it is gorgeous and sparkly and really stunning in the summer. I was going to go with pink, but this bluey green just screamed 'pick me'!

have a great weekend!

Ha! I'm like you ~ a love-hate relationship with shoes. I really prefer not to wear them but since sometimes I really have to, they might as well be cute! Love the pink toenails btw!

Happy PS,

Not a big fan of shoes (I'm all about bags)... Like you, I prefer going barefoot. Luckily for me, our winters aren't nearly as nasty as your winters. This means I can get away with flip flops all year long (though we have had some nasty winter moments - which means I have to reach for my Sketchers. That said, the toes look marvelous, Dahling!

Happy PS

ps as I read your profile - I could put all that on mine - as far as music and movies!!! Other than the Bourne series (which I have not seen) I could do your list all day - same with the music! When they ask that question, other than Casa Blanca, White Christmas and Rudy - I can't think of all the others. Thanks for the list - back to the video store to relive them all!

Happy PiNk, Maggie....

I used to be a lover of heels back in my 20's and 30's...I wore the sample size and found a shop that had nothing but MY size....if you don't think that was an obsession gone wild..LOL

Love the color! Thanks for coming over to visit with me. Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

What a great shade of pink for your pedicure! I need a pedicure in the worst way, LOL. I'm so lazy though, I wear sandals all the time and hate changing colors so I found the perfect shade of pearly white with just a hint of platinum in it, Revlon Pure Pearl, 020. It goes with everything! Thanks for stopping by my blog, Nan
