Wedding Shoes You’ll Want to Wear Again

Glitter and sparkles aren’t my thing and I’m generally a mess in high heels, so one of the most annoying wedding related tasks has been finding a proper wedding shoe. Everything’s just so ugly (in my very honest and probably overly-strong opinion) and I don’t want to spend money on …
