Ask Belle: Shoes for Spring/Summer Weddings
Mar 16, 2015
With the change of seasons, there are a lot of Ask Belle e-mails in my box that I want to cover this week. Not every post will be a reader query, but many of them will be.
Help! I’m the matron of honor for an evening in late-May California wedding(think: mountain, outdoorsy, lace, a bit southern style) and the bridesmaids are wearing short navy dresses all the same color, different styles.
We need shoes! Wedges preferred, nude color, but no canvas style heels as that’s a bit too casual. We’re open to some metallic as well. Under $80 please!
Thank you!! Matron Mal
For spring and summer weddings, I like to stick to flesh-toned shoes and metallic shoes. I know this will be a topic that applies to many readers, so I’d like to expand upon this question for all the ladies who are headed to weddings this summer and don’t want to spend a fortune on footwear.
This post will cover shoes that can be worn to warm-weather weddings, indoor or outdoor, casual or cocktail. All choices are under-$100.
Wedges for Outdoor Ceremonies
*also in gold metallic.
Pumps & Heels
*also in gold.
*I like these for a casual wedding. I think they’re unique and stylish.
For Darker Skintones
This article from Disrupting Dinner Parties discusses some options for flesh-toned shoes for darker skin tones, but the links are all a year old. So I put together a few choices.
