Each year of my life (specifically, the years in which I have been walking), I've gotten a new pair of Keds in the spring. It's my personal celebration of the season. When I was a little girl, sometimes I would pick a color. But most often, my new Keds were white. Last year, in a sudden, bold change, I bought K-Swiss instead. But they were still white. The slight change felt good.
This year, I went all-out. The Spring sneakers are neither Keds nor are they white. I'm a rebel in (tough girl) khaki Keens.
