Obsessed Over Oxfords

Blogs_TroupeBlackIf you don’t yet know, oxfords are going to be everywhere this season—in all shapes and styles. Grey, black, two-tone spectators, wedges, cut outs, leopard print, granny style, and so on. And frankly, you really can’t go wrong with them. They’re a classic style that’s been updated for 2010 (and beyond). Pair them with baggy boyfriend jeans (no socks, please); create a slick silhouette by using them to complement a pair of skinny jeans; wear them with a short skirt and tights; try the streamlined spectator version, or even the bootie take on oxfords.

Check out local stores in Santa Cruz to see who’s carrying the new “must have” shoe.Blogs_Yellow n Brown We’ve seen the black Melissa oxford wedge at Stripe (trés chic) and several varieties at Bunny’s Shoes. We’re obsessed with oxfords because of the stylish quality and flexible outfit options that these shoes present. In the same regard, because there are currently so many varieties of this shoe out there, you won’t feel like a copycat. Instead, you’ll be your own trendsetter.

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
