Silver Shoes for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With White Pants
Quote of the day: “I see my body as an instrument, rather than an ornament.” Alanis Morisette
Since I’m the only one who had to buy the showcased item for this series, I figured there could be many more of you with silver shoes already in your closet! I would consider silver as a neutral—thus really, it should go with anything, although I’m betting many of you might consider silver more formal. Since I wanted to show that silver footwear could just as well be fine to wear casually, I put us all in pants for all of this series. To begin, I pulled out the white jeans. My rationale is that white and silver look very similar from afar, so this would be an easy project for most of us! The variety is in our types of silver shoes. My open toed sandals are flats, Nancy’s open toed sandals have a small heel, and mom’s silver shoes are a closed toe flat.
50’s Outfit: I knitted my sweater a couple years ago—it’s one of my faves since it’s such a colorful print! I picked these sandals because they have memory foam in the sole! They are quite comfortable, but they still don’t have much arch support so they are not the best for an entire day of walking.

60’s Outfit: The sun embellished tee is one of Nancy’s favorites! Her sandals were actually from her square dancing days, thus are very comfortable.
70’s Outfit: Mom’s tee says “I’m not going gray, I’m going platinum.” She considers wearing a t-shirt & pearls as confusion instead of stylish, but I think I’m wearing her down! Her sandals may not be open toed, but since they are a crochet weave, they still feel cool for the warmer days!
