My Wedding Shoes are Boring.

My Shoes - BLAH!

Photo Shoot-Worthy Shoes - HOORAY!



What to do? What to do? What to do? What to do? I am running out of time to decide. Today is my birthday and my gift to myself is unplugging. I've turned off the Morning Joe that Andy leaves on every morning. I've asked coworkers not to tempt me with cake. I've cancelled my usual birthday plans with my girlfriends. It's just me, myself, and I in my last birthday before I have to start checking two new boxes on surveys (Married and, next year, 35+). Maybe I will relish the silence of my day in the comforts of the Nordstrom's, J. Crew, and Bloomingdale's shoes departments on the way home from work tonight.

First - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Second, your shoes are beautiful and classic. I love them. And the ankle strap makes them great for dancing!

Do what Amanda did - dye them and add a vintage clip on earring to each one. You can read about it on her Knot Bio:

Go look at shoes, woman! Maybe you'll find some you love, maybe not. But you won't know until you look!
