A Few Shoes To Go With Those Dresses…

Yesterday was just one of those days. The post I was working on for today just wasn’t coming together. I finally gave up and decided to look at pretty shoes instead. Here are a few styles that would work with yesterday’s wedding guest dresses…

AGL metallic ankle strap sandals. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

As with the dresses, I lean toward styles that aren’t single-purpose, and can dress up or down. I love shoes with metallic finishes, and find them to be incredibly versatile. These aren’t too over the top and have a nice low heel for dancing. This brand usually gets high marks for comfort, too.

Paul Green pointy toed ballet flat silver. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

If you prefer a closed shoe, here’s a pretty silver ballet flat.

Naturalizer Macy jeweled sandals. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Just a little bling. Available in Wide widths, and under $100.

L'Amour des Pieds metallic print sandal. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Well reviewed for comfort! If your style runs a little more Boho or artsy, these would be a fun choice.

Eileen Fisher d'orsay ankle strap pump in metallic suede. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

And here’s another closed-toe option. I like the soft metallic finish. These would also look great with your white jeans!

Do you ever have days where you just can’t finish projects? 😆I hope to get back on track by tomorrow.

Stay in touch.

    Yes, sometimes I’m supposed to “ go with the flow “, instead of “ following my plan”… just saying…

    The ‘bling’ sandal is very appealing but when I tried to open for details, the ankle strap style kept opening….maybe I’m having ‘one of those days”, too!

      Sorry about that! No, something weird was going on with the links. I’ve re-applied them, and they should be working correctly now. Here’s the link to the “bling” sandal: http://bit.ly/2HMBhem

    The link for the ballet flat is the same as the first shoe.

    WHY am I always attracted most to the most expensive shoes in your posts??? LOL! That first pair is gorgeous, but for some reason, every time I try on shoes with those ankle straps, my legs start to look very frumpy … and “cankle-like!” But those are cute shoes!

      I find that sometimes if they’re close to skin color, that “cankle” effect is minimized. 😉

    Please don’t fret about everything not coming together in perfect synchronisation once in a blue moon. Your posts (and their frequency) are marvellous. You do a fantastic job!

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have a summer wedding in Newport in August and the cocktail hour is going to be held in a grassy area which overlooks the ocean called Bel Mer. It’s a beautiful venue but wearing heels is not possible as they often get stuck in the grass and sand. The wedding is dressy casual so I ordered the Yasmine Espadrille from Eileen Fisher to go with a midi dress. The shoes got great reviews so I’m hoping for a comfortable fit.
    On another note, I ordered some Everlane tees and after one wear and delicate wash, hung to dry, it developed the dreaded HOLE! Never tucked in and wore over a pair of EF pull on pants. SO disappointed. Longing for a tee that makes it through a season intact.
