Summer Shoes

31 May

My feet (fingers crossed, I know) are part of my body that won’t be growing too much over the next few months. So, when Ike bought some much-needed work clothes a few weeks ago, I used my best puppy-dog face to score a couple new pairs of shoes on our outing for…just because.

Without further ado, here they are:

Pair #1: Flat Espadrilles

Without putting on my shoe-blogger hat too firmly, espadrilles are those summerly classics with a braided detail around the midsole. These days you’ll see them in wedge form most often, but the originals were flats, like mine! You like?

I love just slipping them on with dresses and heading out the door. They have the casual ease of a sneaker with the added fun of summery canvas with a touch of shimmer.

Pair #2: Wedge Sandals

There’s something so feminine about adding a little height to your step. I usually avoid tall shoes A) because Ike and I are the same height and B) because I have basically no practice and feel like I’m on stilts all day. But these mid-height wedges are super comfy and stable, and Ike and I just get over our temporary height difference:)

These are also great with dresses and even cropped pants. I have decided that the light tan goes with everything and that the thin ankle strap is leg-lengthening. In other words, I’ll be wearing these a lot!

Baby Update:

At our appointment on Wednesday, our doctor gave us her best guess on Baby Peters’ gender! We are doing a low-key gender/name reveal on Sunday with our small group from church…which means, I’ll cover that shindig next week!

To tide the 2 or 3 of you who care over until then…here is a belly pic I took after the appointment I’d say I’m late 16/ early 17 weeks here.

Sorry, not too impressive I know. I’m sure I’ll pop soon?

See ya soon!

      I’ll be 30 weeks over Labor Day, I’m sure the bump will lose the quotes by then:)
