If yesterday was Monday, today must be SHOESday! Today’s edition: my wedding shoes.
Before I was married, I had often toyed with the idea of wearing a red wedding dress (hmm, red dress – me – who’d a thunk it??!!). I used to tease husby about this after we got engaged, and he swore that if I walked down the aisle in a red dress he wouldn’t marry me (I’m pretty sure he was joking…).
Anyway, reality got the better of me, partly because I’d look like a huge beetroot in a red fooffy wedding dress and also because, you know, what colour would my bridesmaids wear?? So I wore the traditional white dress, but I thought hang it, I’m going to wear red shoes at least! It’s not like anyone can see them under a long dress anyway!
And so when I saw these, I knew they had to be mine. Our wedding was in February (that’s summer, people!) and I did NOT plan on wearing stockings, nor did I plan on particularly high heels (husby is only a little taller than me, and besides, if I was going to standing up a lot, I didn’t want to have sore feet at the end of the night). So sandals were perfect.
Red suede sandals with a cool heel and flower trim – are these not the most perfect wedding shoes ever! (Well, they were for me, anyway). (And for the record, my bridesmaids wore purple…)
