I have yet to tell you about my shoes.
I wanted yellow. Not a bright sunshiny yellow...but a darker mustard yellow...and since I can't typically wear heels for longer than an hour or two...I really loved the idea of rocking flats. Plus...how can I walk on the nature trails with my love that day if I wear heels?
And then I changed my mind and fell in love with dark teal....and thought teal shoes would be really cool.
So what did I buy?
A pair of royal blue Nina heels. Random. Yes. I know.
They happen to be wicked comfortable (umm...welllllllll...they were comfortable when I put them on in the store, and that doesn't always equate to actual "real life" comfort...so we'll see). I wasn't looking for shoes while I was out that day...they just sorta jumped at me. The price was right. So I bought them. Even though they weren't yellow or teal...umm...or flats. They are blue....and they are heels. (A lil weird right?) I guess this solidifies the fact that I'm a compulsive shopper...instead of hunting for "just the one most perfect thing" I grab what will work and move on. Except our flowers....hummm....I thought long and hard about the flowers.
I fully realize that my heels will get stuck in the earth as I enjoy all that is rustic Flagstaff...maybe I'll pick up a pair of those heel guard things. Whatevs.
I probably won't wear these shoes much after the wedding. (They happen to match my blue graduation dress...so I will get to wear them four days after the wedding for that....but then...I dunno.) See, I do believe in good shoewear...I do invest in them...my Dankso's...my Chacos....my Naots....shoes I wear to work everyday. Therefore, I chose not to go overboard with a pair of pricey pumps I might only wear once or twice...ever.
One more thing I get to cross off the "to do" list.
*note: if you are wondering about the random signage that my shoes are stepping all over in these images...it's our coffee table. I picked up a wonderful art book of vintage pharmaceutical advertisements at a used bookstore...cut them out...arranged them...and then applied a liquid epoxy to the top...which hardened to a flat shiny plastic surface. Oh...and then I painted the rest of the table a bright red. It kinda rules. Anyway...that's that.
