Classic Light Blue Darlings

I wasn’t planning on buying any shoes this year - I’m very set in my ways with footwear!

Until I unexpectedly found these Cole Haan’s.....

They fit my very low volume feet perfectly with an extra insole. And match my old light blue Furla. They don't look like a perfect match in Finds, but they are. Pics are more accurate. MAGIC!

To my eye, classic and pretty. Very comfy and neat on the feet. Will work with much of what I wear in Spring and Summer.

I looked for this type of bag and shoe match 3 years ago when I got the bag....nothing. All good things come to those who wait ;)

Waving at my light blue shoe sisters! Tanya, Janet, bonnie, JAileen, LisaP....

    Ah, perfect match indeed! How satisfying! I admire how calm and patient you are with your style. 3 years!!

  • JAileen replied 3 weeks ago

    This makes my matchy matchy heart go pitter pat!

  • DonnaF replied 3 weeks ago

    Glad your bag didn't meet an untimely end before you found your shoes! Did you find your shoes IRL or did you cross your fingers and order online? Online colors can be so misleading and inaccurate!

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Synne, it's my goal to be calm and patient in life, so that is high praise.

    JAileen, you have light blue shoes too - right!?

    DonnaF, crossed fingers. Lucky! My Furla looks new, and is frequently used.  KILLER quality.

  • Scarlet replied 3 weeks ago

    Very sweet!

  • cat2 replied 3 weeks ago

    Oh, that will be pretty together. And Cole Haan wears like iron for me, so you should be able to enjoy this combination for a while.

  • lisa p replied 3 weeks ago

    Very pretty . I love the little tab at the back of the heel .

  • Vicki replied 3 weeks ago

    This is a total LOVEFEST for me and I’m so happy you found the shoes. I have a Kate Spade handbag in the same pretty light blue like your Furla. Win-win.

  • anchie replied 3 weeks ago

    Matchy matchy heaven! Love it, I wish I have your patience.

  • Tanya replied 3 weeks ago

    What an amazing find!  And a perfect match with the bag, too, incredible.  Can't wait to see how you wear you light blue complement.

  • Jenni NZ replied 3 weeks ago

    Oh I love perfect matches. Heaven indeed. How great that the universe brought them to you xx

  • JAileen replied 3 weeks ago

    Angie, yes, I have flats, sandals, booties and sneakers that go with my light blue Furla.  Mine don’t match as perfectly as your do, though.  The flats are Seychelles, with a scalloped edge.  

  • bonnie replied 3 weeks ago

    Your new flats are a wonderful match. I've found that my light blue sneakers are very versatile and am thinking that I may need light blue sandals. 

  • rachylou replied 3 weeks ago

    Oh wow, what an amazing match! That’s incredible.

  • slim cat replied 3 weeks ago

    So adorable! I love when shoes and bag match ( or at least go together ;) ).
    Congrats on finding perfect match! Your patience paid off big time.

  • Runcarla replied 3 weeks ago

    Sweet perfection!  I want to see the rest of the outfit!

  • catherine replied 3 weeks ago

    They look so pretty on your feet.

  • Jonesy replied 3 weeks ago

    This color makes me feel serene and soothed, somehow :). Love it! And the fit and style looks so perfect! 

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Thanks, everyone! It's such a lucky match :) and go Team Matchy-Matchy.....

    JAileen, fab! Can I see?

    Vicki, NICE to see you chime in :)

    Bonnie and Tanya, I find light blue very versatile too. 

    Jonesy, soothing and yummy, right? I love wearing light blue with white, citron, red, and other blues. 

    cat2, I hope so. I am hard on shoes and walk everywhere, most of the time. Urban Seattle life. They wear down faster. 

  • Jenna replied 3 weeks ago

    Score! It’s fun to see you get your perfect match.
    That color is so calming and pretty.

  • Nikki replied 3 weeks ago

    Outstanding darlings!

  • Style Fan replied 3 weeks ago

    Very pretty!  I can't wait to see the outfits.

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Thanks, everyone. I'm excited to wear them! 

  • Irina replied 3 weeks ago

    What a perfect pairing! Looks so beautiful and will work with all colors in your palette. Big win, Angie :)

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Thanks, Irina. YES! I find light blue very versatile. Much like light denim. I bet you do too :)

  • cat2 replied 3 weeks ago

    Angie: I switched to Cole Haan pumps and wedges when DC streets were ruining my higher end shoes. Hopefully you will have the same experience on Seattle streets that I did of remarkable resilience.

  • Laura replied 3 weeks ago

    Light blue complement for the win! It is so versatile, isn’t it? I especially love it with red.

  • smittie replied 3 weeks ago

    Matchy matchy!! Woot woot!! :0)

  • Debbie replied 3 weeks ago

    I am glad you found those and I hope you get a lot wear from them.

  • shevia replied 3 weeks ago

    They were meant to be! And look how beautifully they fit your feet! I recently found the structured light blue bag I have been waiting for - it is a cousin to your Furla. Perhaps I will find your shoes' cousin too!

  • Janet replied 3 weeks ago

    Congrats from another fellow matchy-complement club member! :-D Those look like such a perfect fit on your feet and of course the color is excellent.

    I received a pair of pale blue and silver sandals I ordered to try. They are much more comfortable than a black and silver pair that came in the same shipment, but I need to evaluate their usefulness and test them around the house to see if I really need them. The color is appealing to me!

  • Helena replied 3 weeks ago

    So so pretty!

  • Mirjana replied 3 weeks ago

    Beautiful loafers Angie. I love light blue footwear.

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Thanks, everyone! I appreciate the kind words. 

    cat2, good to know. I'm already thinking of getting a backup pair. (I duplicate footwear because the strategy works well for me). 

    Waving to Laura, Jaime and Mirjana. Go Team Light Blue Bag & Shoes!

    Janet, I like those sandals.

  • kkards replied 3 weeks ago

    It was meant to be!

  • Cardiff girl replied 3 weeks ago

    Mmm,these are so pretty,light blue is one of my favourite colours.

  • ChristelJ replied 3 weeks ago

    These are special shoes. The elegant shape and compelling color make them sort of quiet standouts, if that makes sense. May you walk many happy miles in them.

  • JAileen replied 3 weeks ago

    Angie, here are my light blue shoes.  They aren’t perfect matches (like yours), but they aren’t bad.  I think got the boots last year, and haven’t worn them.  I hardly wore anything but slippers last year.  :(

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Thanks for being supportive, everyone. 

    JAileen, FABULOUS. Talk to me about those boots...

  • JAileen replied 3 weeks ago

    The boots are Kork-Ease.  I don’t know if they make them in this color anymore.  They have a nice low heel.  

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    JAileen, the light blue is sold out, but now I have light blue boots on my radar. I love my pink! 

  • cat2 replied 3 weeks ago

    Hmm, Stuart Weitzman has the Dree espadrille in periwinkle, should anyone be looking for pale blue espadrilles for summer. Their shoes are made in Spain, so good espadrilles.

  • Sal replied 3 weeks ago

    Lovely complement Angie!!

  • Joy replied 3 weeks ago

    This is such a delightful pairing. It makes me smile and want light blue shoes and bag.

  • Suz replied 3 weeks ago

    Those are lovely, Angie! Spring-like and soft. I love the matchy-matchy!

  • AJ replied 3 weeks ago

    Oh very nice! You're right, your pictures show them to be a perfect match!  Kudos!

  • suntiger replied 3 weeks ago

    Pretty :) There are lots of light blue shoes this year!

  • RobinF replied 3 weeks ago

    Ooh cute! Love the match!

  • lyn67 replied 3 weeks ago

    Lovely refined style, great match with the bag think they will have a happy life on your feet!:-)

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Thanks, everyone. I'm loving the comfort and the pretty! 

  • Janet replied 3 weeks ago

    Angie, funny about those sandals — I tried them on around the house yesterday and was a little excited about them... until I walked off the carpet and onto tile or hardwood floor. The soles are SUPER squeaky on the floor! So bad that one of the dogs came running to see what was up — I think he thought it was a squeaky toy. LOL

  • Sisi replied 3 weeks ago

    Beautiful shoes and beautiful shade of light-blue (one of my favourite colours). How nice that they match the bag! You lucky duck. :) 

  • Firecracker replied 3 weeks ago

    Beautiful! What a serendipitous find. They look great on you.

  • Angie replied 3 weeks ago

    Janet, HAH :)

    Thanks, everyone. I will debut the darlings soon. 

  • JP replied 2 weeks ago

    Such a pretty color and perfect match.  I can't wait to see your full outfits.

  • Angie replied 2 weeks ago

    Thanks, JP. It was quite the score ;)

  • Runcarla replied 2 weeks ago

    @ JAilene - I have shoe/bag envy!  Genius collection.
