if the shoe fits

when i got married, i vowed not to be one of those gals who ditches her wedding dress into the back of the closet never to be worn again. {since mine was a short, strapless from anthropologie, i will have a much easier time of this than most ladies i know.} so, next month i will be wearing my dress for our dear friends' wedding. 

the only problem? i don't want to wear my wedding shoes. i love them, but with the dress they look too much like something a bride would wear. and so begins my search for a pair of colorful peep toes.

i can't decide between teal or pink, but i am leaning more towards the teal. i do like the pale pink steve maddens, though. i definitely don't want to look like i am getting married, and an oatmeal colored dress and nude heels may do just that. i think the pop of color with teal peep-toes would be just perfect, especially if they are a bit quirky like the modcloth or moschino ones.

{and no i will not be getting either of those... they're a bit outside of the pharmacy student price range}


what are your thoughts?

ooh definitely the teal! love the moschino and luiza barcelo ones! I agree that in pink, you might still lean too much towards 'bridal.' A bright colour like teal will inject that fun element you need :)

i love either choice, but i say go with the teal, it's so springy, and a perfect pop of color!

I'm digging the teal!

One suggestion: make sure your friend is okay with you wearing white to her wedding. Lots of gals I know still ascribe to the "only the bride should be wearing white" rule.
