What I'm Wearing : Floral Print Shoes

Confession time. While I may be swooning over pretty shoes on here, I'm technically on a shoe ban at the moment. I recently cleaned out my closet and found a number of pairs of shoes that have either never been worn or just worn once. The number is more than I care to admit but not quite enough to constitute a problem. Please tell me I'm not the only one. These floral print wedges are a few years old and they're one of my Spring favorites. Hubster actually picked them out. I never really gave much consideration to printed shoes because I have alot of prints in my wardrobe but these are just perfect on the days when I'm wearing a monochromatic or less patterned look. Do you own any printed shoes?

They are so adorable Rowena! I wish I had a pair like this for spring! My number of shoes is fine, I usually buy the ones I know I will wear, though there are some that still havent put on^^' Kisses and have a lovely weekend! xo

They are so pretty and it's certainly perfect for Spring. I hope to own a Spring pair of shoes one day.

I love those shoes, your husband did a great job picking them out! I have a ton of printed shoes because for a while, I was afraid of wearing pattern or didn't find any I thought was nice. I have polka dots, stripes, snake print, Missoni for Target zig zags, and a purple leopard pair.

I hope you have a great weekend and you have nice weather to enjoy!


O, these are so pretty -- you should wear them more. I love printed shoes, though I'd never wear them! I sometimes just drool over the J.Crew ones, but go right back to my old boots haha

I don't but I want to! These are so chic, I have such a problem with ballet flats. The thing is I have long toes and my second toe is longer then the first and when I wear them in my size they totally squish my toes and are too tight but when I go up a half size to compensate then they are way to big and flop off my feet :( but occasionally I come across a pair that is comfortable but they generally have a strap.

i love them! Though you say you wear a lot of printed tops, I don't think prints should be confined there! Your husband has great taste too btw!
I have leopard heels and floral embroidered flats - love them both!

I love the saturated colour, the shoes look pretty! I actually wear most all of my shoes, but I do have several pairs that don't get as much wear as others during the week. I tend to wear a handful of the same pairs, until the weekend. Enjoy your weekend! xx:)

these are so pretty! i actually don't have a lot of printed shoes expect for 2 leopard print pairs. the floral print is so great for spring/summer. and i might have a shoe "problem" too, so you're not alone :)

I dont own any but these are just too pretty. Haven't seen anything like them.

I used to hoard so many pairs of shoes Rowena. However i wanna slapped myself when i cleaned out my closet a year ago. There were so much stuff that i didnt wear or only wore once. This happened EVERY year to the point i told myselfmy something had toa change. Since then i become a minimalist. Try to limit to buying 3 pairs a year or less.

Cute and perfect for Spring! :) I don't own a ton of shoes (compared to most women) so now I'm curious what your number is. :P

Sam said...

You're not the only one Rowena, I am guilty of shoe hoarding too, I am hopefully going to try and follow your example and try to wear some of those hidden shoe closet treasures. I adore this pretty printed pair, I personally love printed shoes more than prints on clothes.Thanks for your lovely comment...have a great start to the weekend!

They are sooo lovely. I´m not on a shoe ban but I have so many shoes in my closet that I have never worn or probably completely forgotten about :)

Love tour shoes


Sam (Savvy City Chic) said...

Those shoes are so pretty. I'm slowly starting to buy more and more fun colored shoes.

You are so not the only one... my mum went through the garage the other day and she asked me if I remembered leaving a suitcase full of shoes! OMG, I'd totally forgotten about them, but it is such a lovely surprise, as it means I won't have to buy anything! Found some amazing wedges for summer, but can't wear them yet... plus they're a little on the high side too, so might be safer to avoid them for a while!

Happy Weekend sweetpea!

Corinne said...

Those shoes are so cute! I am also guilty of wearing shoes only once. Or nonce. I think I only have one pair of printed shoes - they are black and pink leopard print and I haven't worn them in about 3 years!

Jane said...

love these shoes!

Alexa said...

Those shoes are stunning. I just cleaned out my closet and am always amazed at how many things I have that I"ve only worn a couple of times or Never!

M.E said...

Your shoes look great! I have a pair of printed floral wedges which are always great for the spring/summer time :)

Classiq said...

You know how to put spring in your step. Lovely! :)

Natalia | Look-A-Porter said...

Beautiful shoes - the pattern is gorgeous and the colour is so vibrant! I only have one pair of patterned heels and a pair with a heel covered in pattern. :)

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

These are cute Rowena, and so perfect for SPRING! I don't have as many patterned shoes as solids, but I love them and I especially want some new patterned flats for summer (love flats that I can just slip into for summer, easy breezy and chic! Hope you had a wonderful weekend, lovely ... and yes, I'd love to see a Ian and Rena in a picnic post! xoxo ~S

Most of my shoes are solids but I totally need to add some print to my collection. Love these here!! Your husband did a great job at picking these out!

I am pleading guilty as charged :) I, too, have too many pairs of shoes in my closet, that don't get all the attention they deserve. I guess I really have a weakness for "bookshelf" shoes :) But this is such a perfect find, sweetie, floral heels are all the rage this spring, so you'll be right on trend :) They are gorgeous and your hubby has a great taste!

PS: I received my prints today, and they are PER-FECT! I'm obsessed :) And I already have two spots for them on my gallery wall: can't wait to share the pics once it's finished!

Have a wonderful week, hun!

Love that pretty print. And no, you're not the only one. I often "find" shoes that I've bought and forgot about.

Test said...

i actually dont have a pair but been wanting a pair for a long time! very cute pair!

Love the shot of your shoes Rowena! I'm usually quite conservative and boring with shoes and I don't have a lot of colour in my wardrobe. Maybe because I'm a capricorn, however, after reading this, you gave me an idea. I definitely don't like prints on my clothes, except in my accessories, but now it makes me think that having prints on shoes is a pretty good idea to add some colour and pizzazz without feeling self-conscious.


Jo said...

I absolutely love your floral print shoes Rowena! Ooh, I have problematic feet and so I don't buy as many shoes and yet I have so many which are left unworn after only wearing them a few times. Guilty as charged.

Glam Mania said...

Really cute shoes Rowena! And your hubby has such a great taste! :) My husband don't choose anything for me these days cause I never like what he chooses for me :P hehe

Lima said...

I'm not much of a shoe person! I'd love nothing more than to wonder the streets without shoes on, haha! However I do have quite a number of shoes for someone that isn't a fan.

Your floral ballets look lovely! Your hubs did well!
