Memorial day weekend is upon us, and shoes are on the brain. In particular, shoes to wear to a wedding. I’ve got a family wedding to attend this weekend out of town, and I bet many of you have weddings coming up in the next couple of months.
I’ve got three stipulations for a new pair of dressy shoes:
1. Not super expensive
2. Must be able to transition to casual (aka worn with jeans or dressy shorts)
3. On-trend but not trendy, persay
To my surprise, I found a lot of great options! I won’t divulge what I purchased (so I can Instagram about it this weekend, ha!), but what I bought WILL be included. Maybe you can guess. ;-)))
First up, something basic and beautiful. Nude platform pumps with just a touch of something different about them.
There’s no denying my obsession with these. Subtle animal print + hot pink? Yes, please and thank you.
Fell in love with these Ivanka Trump sandals/pumps once I tried them on. They look gorge on your feet. A lady walking by me in Nordstrom’s shoe department even said ” You MUST buy those, they are fab.” Can’t argue with that!
Another Joan & David I couldn’t walk away from – gold and black will match almost any LBD in your closet.
This is the perfect shoe if you need something on the lighter side, color-wise. I love that it has a little bit of glitz to it, but it’s not a super high heel.
Need something saucy and black? These lace ups aren’t really a lace up (thank gawd) since they zip up the back (even cooler) and – they will never go out of style.
This one is a little obvious for a wedding, but sometimes the most obvious shoes are the hardest to find!
Dear Jessica Simpson, surprisingly you make some awesome shoes. Thanks, Style Spies.
Finally – if you ARE looking for something metallic – this is IT. Silver AND gold – so versatile.
Happy long weekend, everyone – and remember to start this season in style!
