The red Swedish Hasbeens that I was lucky enough to snag for $74.99 at Modcloth just before they sold out have officially arrived, and they are AMAZING. They are incredibly comfortable and truly easy to walk in, even for someone as heel-challenged as myself. I literally cannot wait to wear them. And as usual, the wheels in my head are already spinning, trying to figure out how I can start up a fund for a pair in another color -- Black? Nature? Okay, I should stop getting ahead of myself. Let's try to focus on the pair that I already own, shall we?
As I've never really had a pair of brightly colored shoes in my closet before, I think that my initial attempt at styling these gorgeous t-strap clogs will be similar to the outfit that Erin of Calivintage wore in this blog post from November. Well, minus the straw hat. And let's not lie to ourselves -- there will most likely be a scarf involved. See below for a photo from Erin's post that I'm using as inspiration.

1. They disappeared quickly at Modcloth, especially once they went on sale, but you can still get your hands on a pair in this particular color (albeit for full price) at Endless.
2. Kevin's reaction: "much better than those other new shoes" -- thus confirming my suspicion that these booties probably qualify as man-repeller-chic. I'm still not sure what he'll think of these floral saddle shoes, though.
