Baby Steps....

I'm long overdue in telling you all about these beautiful little baby shoes my lovely friend Michela sent us!


aren't they cute?

She explained that it is an Italian tradition to give pregnant women booties as a symbol of luck for a healthy pregnancy and baby!

When we arrived on our honeymoon some dear Italian friends has decorated our awning with ribbons and bows and lots and lots of flowers and left these on the table!


Such a lovely tradition don't you think?
Obviously Victoria and I felt the need to add to baby girl's booming shoe collection!
Look at these cute little boots!


And these little Chanelesque shoes (Just like Auntie Victoria's!)



I'm thinking of starting a new English tradition. It involves the new Mummy receiving shoes of a different kind!!!


Are you with me?

Lots of Love

Word of advice..............don't get her on the shoes just yet or you'll end up with another Jess, her shoes seem to take over the whole house lol.

what a lovely tradition and such cute shoes! Not sure I could wear shoes like that anymore - too many years needing to chase after toddlers means I have forgotten how to walk in heels :-(

Hey Kelly, thanks for popping by my blog! The booties are gorgeous but those little Chanel-esqe shoes are where I'm at, divine, wouldn't mind a pair of Louboutins myself, would be rude not too - they're design classics now aren't they!

Victoria Plum said...

I'm with you on that new tradition! Ha Ha Ha!! I haven't picked up enough courage to try on any heels since the arrival of Baby Plum ... am worried that my feet will still be swollen and I will spend my life in flip flops!! :) Managed to get my wedding rings (and new eternity ring from Mr Plum!) back on yesterday! Hurray! Things are slowly getting back to normal! :) xxx

Lisa said...

That is a lovely tradition, bless Michela for sending something so sweet!
