Sailor Jerry set up shop at Deuces and the Diamond with a poolside pig roast (complete with whole pig) and complimentary Sailor Jerry Rum drinks.
Since it was about 1,000 degrees out this weekend figuring out what to wear was an issue. A black halter sundress won out, and than came the shoe challenge.
|I felt they fit the theme of the event.|
As I was getting ready my thought was that I'd just wear my black wedge sandals that I got in Vegas a couple years ago. They're comfortable, easy to walk in and cute. Then my dear husband reminded me that I was attending the event as "Cat in Heels" and representing the blog. That meant every shoe I own had to come out and get tried on as an option.
Finally, I decided to channel the Sailor Jerry vibe and with my black, red and white TUK peep-toe heels with the horseshoe on them.
The thing I didn't think about was navigating around a pool in a pair of giant heels after having a few rum and lemonades or rum and ginger ales or a few of both.
|The whole pig. Head and all.|
Most of the people there had the sense to wear flip flops or some sort of other summer appropriate shoe that belongs poolside. But no, I had to go ahead and complete an outfit perfectly (although I was dissatisfied with my earring choice) and leave logic totally out of it.
Luckily I managed to teeter all over the party and not fall over, get drunk or otherwise embarrass myself, and I looked good while doing it (must have been the horseshoe). Still, it would have been easy to wear a pair of sandals or flip flops and no one would have looked twice.
Well, maybe if someone knows me they would question me being in a pair of flip flops, but that wouldn't happen, so we don't even need to speculate.
