always a bridesmaid & shoe poll

Well, I'm not ALWAYS a bridesmaid...but I definitely am one this coming weekend. One of my best friends is getting married and I will be one of her bridesmaids.

The wedding is at her and her fiancee's antebellum historic house and property, outdoors, and full of rustic charm.

The bridesmaid dresses are GORGEOUS. Well, at least mine is! :) We did the thing where the bride picks the color/line and the maids pick the style of dress.

Here is my dress (style AND color):

Here's my dilemma, y'all. The ceremony will be outside on their front lawn. That means grass and other turf to tackle. Normally in a situation like that, I'd go with flats. However, because my dress is short, I want to wear heels. And let's face it, I need an excuse to go fancy shoe shopping. BUT, I really have absolutely no idea what kind of shoes to wear with this dress. The shoes need to be brown or brownish. But I could get away with something flesh-colored, I think.

These are sort of what I had in mind. Which color/style do y'all like? Or, do you have a suggestion?

So, there's a peep-toe nude pump, bronze-ish strappy heel, peep toe nude patent pump and a brown strappy sandal. These aren't the actual shoes I'm considering (cough...Jimmy Choos cost more than my monthly car payment...cough) but this style.

Alright blog friends...weigh in and let me know what you think!


  1. I really hart the nude patent pumps! But, the first one's may do better on turf. :-)

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog!
    I choose option #3 (a close second is #1)
    Happy Halloween!

  3. I'm a huge fan of classic peep-toe pumps!

  4. the 3rd ones! patent leatherpumps-ash

  5. Have you considered a wedge? Dressy and turf friendly. DSW has these lovely nude peeptoe wedges:

  6. Thanks for the input y'all!

    Selah, I thought about wedges, but was worried they wouldn't be dressy enough. I'll browse around for some too.

  7. I think the 3rd ones! I almost bought a very similar pair at Marshalls and am wishing that I did. Plus, they're versatile enough to wear with anything.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
