After several days of fever, flu and Felicity marathons, my mood has started to resemble Berlin's winter weather: grey and a little sad. But today's brilliant blue skies and sunshine - not to mention a lifting of the chills and an inability to eat much more than table crackers - have lifted my spirits in ways I desperately needed. A long way off from bare legs and open toes, I still can't help but take this bright dose of vitamin D and dream about the seasons ahead in which it will shine with regularity. And what better way to imagine oneself in warmer months than coveting bright, fun footwear that is not covered in mud and crusted with salt?

The recent discovery of Orla Kiely's collection for Clarks has me feeling much the same as today's weather: optimistic about the coming sandal season and excited to shed the many layers we have all been buried under for months. While the collection is a bit '60s-inspired for my current urban streetwear tastes, it's hard not to be won over by Orla's simple, graphic flowers and punchy color palette. Don't even get me started on those classic stem-print soles! I suppose those green sandals could be the perfect way to keep my grey and black wardrobe tendencies from feeling too morose this spring...
