Bridesmaid Sandals


Wearing chunky green sandals, teal tights and a fringed bag. And a lace dress... Which, contrary to what it might seem on the pictures, is fully lined, girls! And boys! :)


As you can see, I love this bag. I have to admit though that my biggest love are the sandals.
They proved to be faithful friends through thick and thin - accompanying me to one of my best friends' wedding last May, for instance. I should thank her (Hi, Ildi!) for these lovelies, as she had the idea to dress her bridesmaids in green, and in the instant I heard this, I envisaged green shoes... And stalked them in Tamaris. Honestly, after seeing a picture of them on display, I kept pestering the shopkeepers about when they will arrive. I figured as I found a dress for the wedding for insanely cheap, I really deserved some nice shoes. :)

Dear Green Shoes, sorry for this picture, which really doesn't do you justice. I promise you will get your chance to shine another time!

It's so funny. As I discovered on Saint Patricks day, I really don't have much green in my closet at all. Love those shoes though :) I want some chunky strappy heels. Plus, that dress is so so flattering.

This outfit is probably one of my faves so far! I love how monochromatic (but NOT boring) it is! I'm a sucker for mixing textures and tones. And yes, those shoes deserve their own post. Just sayin'.

Sarah said...

I love all of the jewel tones in your outfit! I don't know what else to say. Maybe that I envy your lace dress and those fantastic shoes? (:

Madeline Quaint said...

These sandals are great indeed, Lea! :) And the dress is a huge love affair... I had to wait for the sales to get it, but then I was there in a flash! :D

Thanks Maya, I'm sure the shoes will come to the limelight again! :)

Thank you, Sarah, jewel tones are my favourite! :)

I love the colors here...and that fab fringey bag! I admire people who mix it up color wise. I'm such a chicken, always slinking around in black.

Thanks for your recent comment on G&G. So touched by your kindness, and the kind comments of so many others.

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you Federica! Happy Easter to you too! :)

Which reminds me - sorry for not being around the blogoshpere a lot these days, we have a huge family gathering involving endless entertaining. Which is not so bad if accompanied by nice wine. :)

Awesome shoes. And bag. And who am I kidding, awesome everything! :)

Madeline Quaint said...

Thank you so much for the award, Ipek! :)

Steffy, great that you stopped by! Teal has to be my favourite colour. :)

Ildi!!! :) You know I only did it for the shoes.
Joking, joking, why would I regret having been your bridesmaid? :)

Tiia, thank you! :) Your latest post offers so much food for thought!

Gracey said...

Amazing. I have wanted some green shoes forever and you've convinced me I just need to take the plunge and get some so I can wear them with my teal tights. You look fabulous in this.

Also, that bag is ridiculously awesome.

Madeline Quaint said...

Thanks Gracey! It's great to wear colourful shoes, but I'm a very colour-oriented person anyway. :) I've been toying with the idea of hot pink shoes for a while, for instance...

Thanks Catherine!
I'm still not sure about the socks with sandals trend, tights with sandals are a safer option. :D
