My "Something Blue" is...Shoes!

Since blue has been my favorite color for as long as I can remember, it was important to me that the color be incorporated within the wedding.  With the color teal chosen as a main color for our peacock-themed wedding, integrated in everything from the Save the Dates, to the invites, to the bridesmaids' dresses, I wanted to utilize teal/blue in another, not necessarily traditional way.

Everyone knows the old saying "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue", so for my something blue, I decided that I wanted it to be my shoes!  So of course the next logical step was to create a board just for shoes on Pinterest for inspiration.  Can you guess which ones I ultimately decided on?

And the winner is...the glittery gold and teal Kate Spades (Corinne)!  When I saw that shoe--that perfect shoe which encapsulated both my wedding colors so seamlessly, I just knew I had to have it.  Initially in my search, I was pretty set on getting a shoe that was either 3" or 3.5" since I plan on dancing up a storm, however Corinne only comes in 4" so I'll just have to spend the next few months breaking her in.

What will your "something blue" be?
