I have a love hate relationship with shoes. I love them, they hate me. They hurt me. In revenge I make them live in the back of my cupboard for eternity (or until guilt drives me to donate them to the charity shops)
I spent the first four years of my life in a very hot country, where I either wore flip flops or nothing on my feet. I’m pretty sure this is why my feet, although small, are rather flat. Almost square in fact. Stupid little trotters.
So I struggle to find shoes that fit, or that are comfy. I usually end up with blisters on my blisters, and wearing the same pairs of shoes until they fall off my feet. Like these.
BUT (as I *may* have mentioned) I am getting married in a few months, which means I will have to go shoe shopping…gulp.
In an ideal world, where I had normal sized made of steel feet like other women (and bags of cash) I would want a pair of these beautiful Rachel Simpson peep toes heels.
Aren’t they just gorgeous? But the backs would kill me, and I’m too much of a coward to try that “breaking them in” malarkey!
I also covet this beautiful blue pair by the same designer. But again, I has the fear!
I also like these little lacy ones – surely they wouldn’t be too painful? But then I don’t have any other lace going on…grrr…also I am the same height as husband-to-be and don’t want to tower over him. Maybe flats!!
Lovely, lovely, lovely flats. One of my (many, don’t ask) bridesmaids has informed me that I should wear heels to – and I quote – “make you look like you’ve actually got an arse” Ah yes. Well. Unfortunately my lumps n bumps don’t really include a booty, and I’m not sure heels would generate one as if by magic, so I’ll ignore that…flats!
Look at these little beauties! Unfortunately I can’t actually find where they are from or if they really actually exist because I found them on pinterest and they have been repinned so many times I don’t know where they came from originally. Humph.
These are also nice and summery!
Another Pinterest find (no, I’m not obsessed with Pinterest) (OK I am) so no idea where they are from or anything, but a cute look no? And I don’t do bling usually but I might make an exception for these.
I should probably stop kidding myself though – I’m wearing a pouffy floor length dress (yeah I was shocked too) so I may as well just wear trainers…check these bad boys out! Winning!
