Birthday Shoes

The sandals I bought with the birthday money my parents-in-law sent me!! On a dilapidated chair that looks far better than my pedicure at the moment. 

 

Months ago, I asked Mireio’s FB page readers, “Which color should I get?” I had birthday money and a will to spend it!  These gorgeous sandals also come in this really pretty creamy yellow. And I was torn. Which pair should I splurge on?

This color was the universal favorite. Almost everyone said “Blue!”*  And I opted for it because 1.) so much of my wardrobe works with this color, and 2.) I was afraid the creamy yellow wouldn’t look appealing on my turkey flesh white legs. I sport an Oregon tan.

Maybe a bit more green than I expected. But so pretty. Love that zipper… scared to pull it, tho!

So, I took the plunge. I bought a pair of sandals to replace my beloved sandals that died 2 years go.(Remember these??) Oddly enough, I bought that pair for a wedding and the sandals didn’t arrive in time to get packed in my suitcase. Omen??  And then they died after wearing them to a wedding 4 years later after non-stop summer wear.  I cried. I still have them, useless, tucked away in my armoire.   

I’m realizing I have a thing for blue sandals. I may need to branch out. What color? Red? Orange?? Which makes me wonder: do you find yourself drawn to  the same color sandal each year? 

*Several people on Facebook mentioned they might buy these (Masque Geo Sandals). If you haven’t already, order a half size down. I wear an 8.5-9 in most shoes and ended up returning the 8.5 for an 8. They run a bit, loose. They don’t grip your ankles like you’d expect. I’m still trying to decide if that’s a good thing. But IZ convinced me to keep them and I think I’ll love them when skirt season finally arrives.
