I’m on my way to Salt Lake City today, so I have a guest post from the wonderful Laura at Hollywood Housewife. She’s talking about one of my favorite topics – shoes! I have to admit that I’m not a wedge gal – I feel like I clomp around in them. But after seeing how cute these are, I may have to ditch my stilettos for some wedges this summer!
Fashionable AND Functional Wedges
I’m so happy that it’s finally spring, which means that open-toed shoes are everywhere. My footwear of choice: wedges. Oh, how I love how pretty and versatile wedges can be. You can dress them up, you can dress them down, and most importantly, they don’t kill your feet.
Even in Los Angeles, I spend most of the winter in boots or flats, so it’s welcome to get a pedicure and put on pretty shoes. Since I’m a mom to two small kids, I can’t get away with stilettos or anything too fancy. Wedges are the perfect compromise between my fashion-loving self and my functional and productive needs.
A few of my favorites include these Michael Kors wooden wedges from a couple of years ago and these Mea Shadows wedges from last year.
The Michael Kors pair have a 70’s vibe, and the wooden heel makes them feel substantial enough to put away for my daughter, who will someday find them and deem them “vintage.”
So what do you think? Are you on the wedges bandwagon? What are some of your favorite styles? Leave your favs in the comments, and be sure to stop by and visit Laura at Hollywood Housewife!
