Wedges (under $40!)
Murphy’s Law always comes into play when you want everything to go just right. Do you all agree? We had our friends in from Virginia Beach this past weekend and although they have a beach, they were ready to indulge in the white sand and sunshine of the Emerald Coast. Well, the weather was not the best but they assured me they still had a great time on their visit. Regardless, wedge weather and beach season are about to be undeniable (and I told them they can come back anytime for a sunny beach weekend haha).
Wedges are my favorite mode of transportation in the summer time. I love that they elevate (both literally and figuratively) any warm weather outfit! I picked up this pair (color shown above is taupe) last season and they get A LOT of love. Because I realized I wear this pair so often, I am on the hunt for a few options to rotate in! Here’s what I’ve found so far:
I am going to pretend like the following break down is for you all, but really I just need some justification to assist me in my decision on which option/s I need to add to my shoe collection. Bear with me, okay! 🙂
- Suede Detail Wedges: Although these look very similar to the pair shown above, I like the color options and strap feature. They have that sturdy base but seem lighter due to the straps that aren’t too strappy if you know what I mean.
- Patterned Wedges: As if you don’t know this already… leopard is my favorite pattern. Please note the clutch in the above image. Clearly, this pair is a no-brainer for me. How cute would these statement making wedges look with a simple pair of jean shorts and your favorite tee?
- Laser Cut Wedges: I like this slightly different take on the classic wedge. I used to be very opposed to cork heels (they can be a little touch on go on the look and quality) but this pair passes my test. I have the black pair of these laser cut wedges and definitely need the brown pair (they’re on clearance too!). The lace up feature is so cute and casual paired with your favorite summer dress!
- The Dream Wedges: Or in this case, they’re actually espadrilles. THIS pair of Chloé espadrilles are everything I love in life, really. They’re my favorite color, feature scallops and have a little bump of height. I will warn you however that they’re an investment. One right now that I can’t make but I still wanted to share them with you because I wasn’t able to find a dupe (this wedge option shared in this Spring Musings post is close but not quite). Ugh. They’re so cute! Us girls can dream!
Do you have your eye on any wedges for the summer season ahead? Raise your hand if you’re ready for wedge weather. After a gloomy weekend, you bet I am*!
*Although I can’t complain as I know some of you have snow on the ground right now. Crazy! Don’t worry… summer is coming!
