the white shoe rule.

i once read [years ago] that you should never wear white shoes.
why? because it brings attention to your feet...and ultimately, you want people to look at you, not your feet. (unless you have really cute shoes and want people to look at your feet, right?) well, i've stuck to that rule all this time, because 1) they are in-your-face bright, and 2) they remind me of prom or wedding shoes.
but white shoes have really evolved, and with all the cute styles now, i might actually consider purchasing a pair.

this kellen wedge from JustFab was the perfect baby step for me. the two-tone black and white allowed me to test the waters while staying in my comfort zone. plus, it's really, really comfortable. check out this week's JustFab promotion below.

do you or would you wear white shoes?

How is the shoe sizing? I have been tempted to buy my first pair of white shoes too! And I love the ones your wearing!

lauren - it's pretty true to size. if a particular style isn't, they'll say so in the description. let me know if you get them!

Love those shorts and your blazer! I'm not the biggest fan of white shoes (or white in any sort of solid block of color...) so I just kind of avoid it. I do have a pair of white wedges, though, which are pretty okay, as well as a pair of espradilles that I wear as house shoes.

Those shoes are so cute...perfect step towards an all white shoe! I've been wanting to try the white shoe, but I think my legs need some color first!

White shoes have come a loooong way. I love yours. I just bought a pair that criss crosses in the front (white) and is tan in the back (ankle strap). Fabulous styling Becks.

I haven't consciously had a rule against white, but now that you've made me think about it, I haven't had a white pair since I was in my early 20s! That's a long time ago! I like the two-toned pair you're modeling.

Thelma Frayne said...

I love the shoes, so I say screw that rule.

Diva In Me said...

Wow!! It's definitely a gorgeous pair of shoes and it matches your blazer so well =D
I like white shoes and they're great to pair it with not-so-loud dresses or outfits. Or when you want the attention to go to your legs and not your top =D

Laura said...

Yeh, I've always been told that white shoes make your feet look bigger and I definitely don't need that. I really like these sandals though :-)

Chicago Chic said...

That's a great rule... adore the mix of black and white!

I don't, but I may.
I feel about the same way you do...and I hate them completely once there is a tiny scuff.
Those, I would wear!! xo
