I hadn't intended to start with the shoes. I have nearly everything else planned out, which I was going to tell you in lovely detail. Later, apparently.
I was browsing Zappo's, looking for blue shoes in my size with a good-sized heel & these little babies jumped out at me. The style is the Charlotte, from Rock & Republic. They're not at all my normal style, but something about them appeals to me. They've got the right color scheme (blue & white) & the little gold buckles somehow seem nautical to me, which is the wedding theme. Hmmm . . . maybe it's not so crazy after all?
