Red Sandals 2 (Matching)

Red Sandals for the 50's, 60's, & 70's.

Red Sandals for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: As a Matching Item

Quote of the day: “Let your past make you better, not bitter.” @ThisInspiresUs on Twitter

Progressing on with the discussion of outfits that will look great with your red sandals!  The matching idea of pairing like colors is one of my mom’s favorites.  It’s true that wearing the same color with same color was grounded into our psyche when we were young. And it’s relatively easy to figure out when putting an outfit together.  How many of you love to match your shoes to your bottom half apparel?  I had the three of us sport the red sandals as a pop of color in the last post here.

50’s Red Sandals: My friend, Julie, gave me this dress when we went to a swing dance lesson since the skirt has great movement.  I can’t say my feet had great movement (at least not where they were supposed to move) but it was a fun time!

60’s Red Sandals: I would have never paired the turquoise jewelry with the red until reading many blogs. It was a “hit the hand to the head moment” since many turquoise jewelry pieces have red in them!

70’s Red Sandals: Mom’s necklace is actually a shoe clip with a black cord threaded through it!  Aren’t we innovative?

Linking up with Fun Summer Finds,  & Top of the World Style

Here’s some red sandals that are wedges (all under $30):

  • Kathleen McDermott

    Love the red shoes matching a red portion of Charlotte’s and your outfit. The red shoe with Nancy’s darling dress doesn’t work for me. I think a red patterned shoe could be cute, or if her red shoes had a different color adornment on them. She still looks very cute though.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I totally get what you’re saying Kathleen. I, too, am not much of a monochromatic color outfit lover (at least that’s what I’d consider Nancy’s outfit to be). But I’m amazed at how many women gravitate towards this look!

  • Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I love that you show that ageless items can be worn at any age and look great!

  • Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. Again a great post! I really like your blog!

  • You each look darling! Love the dresses/outfit and red sandals; you’re all ready to take on summer.

  • Love all the looks! Everyone looks so bright and cheery!

    • Of course we are…we’re not in the middle of a move to another state!!

  • Great looks Jodie. I also like to match colours in my outfit, however sometimes I go crazy and mix colours and patterns.

    • I’m getting braver trying to mix colors & patterns…I think it’s a learning process!!

  • I do use shoes that match a color in my outfit and yes it is hardwired for me. Last night I wore white pants and top with a hot pink sweater and hot pink wedges. I try for a variety of both matching and just using them for an extra pop of color, but do struggle and blame my mother and grandmother’s generational legacy, lol. Makes me wonder what my daughter will blame on my generation!

    • Ha ha…I so know what you mean. It seems like what we learn at that young age tends to stick with us over time! But I think you’re very good at trying new things!!

  • All you gals look great. I have pined for a pair of red shoes lately. I remember a paid of Keds I had as a kid (I was probably 4-5), and a pair of red clogs I owned in high school (70’s). I *need* some new red shoes, LOL! And I absolutely LOVE the shoe clip turned into a necklace! Wow, what a cool idea!

    • Thanks!! I do think red shoes are a must have…they just seem so classic! (And see the great memories you have of your from the past?)

  • MaryAnne

    As usual you all look great. It was drilled into me as a kid always wear shoes that match the dress. Sometimes it is fun to switch it up with a splash of unexpected color, as you did in your last post.
    PS I love ballroom dancing as well but the swing is my favorite. 🙂

    • It was drilled into us, wasn’t it? I think that’s why it’s not my favorite and hard for me to do! But I thought I’d show it, since our age groups are used to it!

  • This isn’t something I would have thought to do, but it looks great! It can be tricky to make sure the shades match closely 🙂

    • This (to me) shows how wonderfully young you are, since us older generations were trained that the shoes should match!! It’s not my favorite look (to me it looks dated) but my mom loves it!!!
