WHITE SHOES

Many thanks to all of you who helped me with which shoes to wear with my blue-striped top. Thanks to you, I have put my white shoes in the Goodwill pile, and will not wear coral sandals with that outfit.

Today’s post is a short one. I am showing you another summer outfit (last white one for this year!) with different shoes. The purpose of these posts is just to get you thinking. Sometimes just changing your shoes can make or break an outfit.

Hmmm. After seeing these, maybe I should keep the white sandals. What do you think? I will abide by the majority. Just vote YES or NO.  YES means I keep them, NO means they go to Goodwill.  Thanks!

Also thinking I really don’t like this necklace with the outfit. This is why you take pictures 😉

Still learning! See you soon.

BLUE’S SHOES

Dear readers, you did such a good job on helping me decide what to wear with my striped top. Thank you! Today I am asking for help (in the shoe department) on what to wear with another striped top. I am going to wear this pretty summer sweater with white pants or a white skirt, but can’t decide on the shoes. The only ones I am eliminating are the flat white sandals, because they are going to Goodwill. They did not look good in my earlier post, and they don’t look good now. Luckily they were very inexpensive, so I don’t feel too bad about passing them on, but really never should have bought them. At the time, I thought they would replace a pair of white Clark’s flip flops that I gave to my daughter for a beach trip, but no. They will not look good with anything.

So, once again, please vote for your favorite shoes, and those are the ones I will wear. Have to hurry, because Labor Day is approaching fast!  LOL

And the automatic loser:

Thanks for your help! After looking at all the photos, I have a definite favorite in mind. It will be interesting to see if you agree with me. 🙂

TBT #5 Big White Shoes

This post was part of one I did when we returned from an Alaskan cruise. I thought the shoe advice bears repeating, so here goes:

When I travel, I ALWAYS wear comfortable shoes. You cannot have fun if your feet are not having fun. However.….you do not have to wear ugly shoes.  And let me say right now that I really cannot think of any occasion when big white athletic shoes are appropriate.  If your comfortable shoes look like any of these, it is time for a change:

These photos are are just a sample of what I saw….big white shoes were everywhere.   It is a little hard to take pictures of people’s feet without them noticing, so I was only able to get pictures of a small percentage of the offenders, but I think you get the idea.

Please note that I am not saying that you cannot wear white sneakers. But there is a way to wear them and a way not to wear them. Jennifer Anniston makes white sneakers look adorable.

Here are the ones that she is often photographed in:

Here is a link to a blogger that I follow. Notice how cute her shoes look!

And speaking of what not to wear on your feet, PLEASE be careful how you wear hose. Most people do not wear pantyhose at all anymore, but if you do, they should be sheer and worn with a dressy closed-toe shoe. I know you would NEVER do anything like this:

Or this:
