I don't think I've ever done a "fashion" post before - because, well, I'm not very interested in fashion. That said, I have a new love...its called the wedge. In the past few years I've been a bit of a wedge-ist, judging those harmless shoes far too severely and never even bothering to put them on my poor aching feet.
Oh, how naive.
Wedges. Are. Amazing.
As spring rolled in, the wedges rolled out; and I saw them in an entirely new light. They give the wonderful height of heels along with the comfort of slippers. That's right, I said slippers. I've been running around the house in these little doozies for weeks now.
The ones above are my newest pair which I haven't had the pleasure of wearing outside yet. They are from Sperry Topsider. As you can see, they are adorable and incredibly well made. I bought these as a reward for my tootsies after running the half-marathon in February.
These espadrilles are as authentic as they come, straight out of a tiny shop in Madrid. Simon's mom, sister, and I all bought a pair in varying colors. They were very reasonably priced, especially when I saw this pair at DSW at $70 for the same exact shoe (I paid 1/3 of that).
This style, also from Sperry Topsider, will hopefully be mine soon.
The only downside I've found is that none of my current pants are long enough to wear with wedges, which isn't surprising since I bought them to wear with flats. Either I need to buy some new pants...or I need to work on my patience and wait to show the world my shoes until it is skirt and dress weather...I think I'll manage.
