Shoes That Make My Heart Flutter

I used to wear heels all the time. When I was in high school, I always tried to dress nice. Even though it didn't always come together perfectly, I tried. Luckily, my friends were some of the school's fiercest fashionistas and they always encouraged me to dress well.

 We all loved buying shoes. And I've alwasy been a sticklet for the highest heels.

My legs are my best feature and everyone knows a high heel accentuates the legs. As a matter of fact,  the weekend I met Mr. B, I wore nothing but platforms.

A few years ago, my perfect wedding shoes would have looked something like this:

or this:

Nowadays, my style is much different. While I still love getting in a pretty pair of heels for an evening on the town or out with my hubs, my everday wear is definitely flat. I work in an office, so I don't have to do a lot of walking around, but I walk to a bus every morning and I need to be comfortable.

The same goes for our wedding day. I don't want stingy feet or ouchy blisters!

But there's another reason I won't be making a cameo in heels on our wedding day and it has to do with Mr. B: we're the same height. No, I'm lying. He's probably an inch or two shorter than me. Our pictures (and everything) would like really weird if I was towering over him.

So more than likely, I'll be in a pair of lovely flats like these:

Or some pretty open-toesy ones like these:

Or more than likely, my absolute favorites, these:

What type of shoe are you wearing?

Is your man shorter than you? Will you wear heels or flats?

I'm with you. I'm a huge fan of the flats-to-work-change-into-heels-when-you-get-there club. :)

You've got to go with one of the butterfly shoes! I love the last 2. Unfortunately, I'm only about 5'3" and he's 6ft so heels weren't an issue for me.
