It's true.
I'm bringing velcro back.
and velcro is sexy.
I'm bringing sexy back ;)

JT would be proud.

But on a serious note, these Capri Chunky Heels in Chestnut from Prima Donna have a VELCRO ankle strap--in lieu of a buckle strap--and they are awesome. I'm pretty sure the last time I had velcro as a way to secure the shoes on my feet was in 3rd grade. Major nostalgia hit when I put these heels on!

Feeling young again is something I'm in desperate need of right now. Yes, I am technically only 22 years old, but the whole graduating-from-college-and-having-to-become-a-big-girl-now stage I'm at is making me miss the days where the only concern I had was what tree I was going to climb that day.

Anyway, besides the fact that the velcro on these heels give me flashbacks of my childhood, the velcro makes them my new favorite pair of heels to wear because it is so easy to put on and take off! Sometimes I spend 5 minutes just trying to adjust those dang buckles on ankle straps! With these heels, my feet can be ready in 5 seconds (instead of minutes), and they come off in a jiffy. Get yourself a pair from Prima Donna because these babies are suh-weet. They also come in Cayenne and Black!

On a side note:

They flew in yesterday along with my Aunt! I haven't seen them in almost a year aaaaand it's their first time back in Utah since they left for Japan 28 years ago!!! It's kind of cute that they're back in the town where they met and fell in love. Lots of ooooh-ing and ahhhh-ing on the car ride home from the airport. Apparently a lot has changed since 1986 . . . . .

Me and mumsy. I obviously get my looks from this pretty lady.

Another thing to note:

Well, technically I'm officially graduating tomorrow. Today is the big commencement where ALL the graduates of BYU file into the stadium and we listen to an important person tell us to go out and change the world. But tomorrow is the actual convocation for my specific college/major where I get my name called and I get to shake people's hands and stuff.

These past couple days have seriously been a whirlwind. Things are happening so fast and honestly, I just need time to slow down a bit so I can really enjoy these little moments. I'm afraid I'm going to blink and suddenly my parents will be back in Hawaii and I'll be job-less. I'm going to just take a ton of pictures because I heard somewhere that those last longer. . . . .
