Oh The Places You'll Go!

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
 any direction you choose.
You're on your own.  And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.

excerpt from "Oh, The Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss, which every adult should be required to read at the start of each new decade of their life

And with my feet in THESE shoes, I am thinking that anything is possible.  Shoes that are as awesome as these must have special powers.

They put a spring in my step

Adventure is calling, and the shoes say GO! Who am I to argue with shoes like these?

 Doc Marten brogues from the Doc Marten store in Toronto
jeans - The Sentimentalist
silk t-shirt - gift from a friend
sweater - Joe Fresh
Rambunctious behaviour - I blame it on the shoes


  1. Those are truly fabulous Seussian shoes! Wonderful! I like your action shot!

  2. Those shoes surely must have superpowers! I love the pink and red combo too.

  3. Oh ya! Those shoes are awesome! I almost got them!

  5. Well that just cheered me up, and left a good thought in my brain right before going to sleep! I'll blame it on the shoes, but also on Dr. Seuss and you, a formidable combination!!!

  6. I can't concentrate with you jumping up on the rail like that! It makes me nervous!! You look like you're about to fly right over!

    1. If you are referring to the travelling yellow skirt, it is headed to the Fashionable Bureaucrat after me, and then a couple of other bloggers in Canada, then over to Curtise in the UK so its dance card is full for the next little while ;)

  22. Ooooh, I can't tell you how much I love these shoes! They are fabulous, and I too would be doing a happy dance if I had them on.
