I found some dress shoes I thought would look good with my outfit for the wedding. They were $36 and change, with tax and shipping. The box arrived on Tuesday.
I don't think I like them. The above photo was taken under incandescent lighting. The one below was taken with natural light.
The shoes will be a whole dress removed from the jacket so why care? I think it looks more put together to have them closer in shade. Plus, I think, now that I see the ruffle, it looks a bit like an afterthought. They didn't think the shoes would sell without adornment so they sent them back and someone suggested a ruffle. So, I'm going to send them back, exchange them for a pair of jeans, which I know I'll wear, or some colorful tops or something.
It's back to square one now. I did think maybe finding a pair of green or pink shoes would be fun and different, but I'm kind of set on bone or ivory. There is a sale upcoming at Penneys for friends and family. That will be a good time to go see what they have that might work. The other side of this is that I rarely wear heels anymore. I have no need to. I put these on and walked about the house and felt a bit unsteady. I want to feel comfortable in my shoes at the wedding and I wasn't. But, whatever shoes I do end up getting I will wear so I'm comfortable.
A little over a month away. Time has just flown.
