Today’s look was far from spring,
and all about staying dry.
But, I promised you all some wedges for today, so wedges it is. I don’t know about you, but I am so ready to spring forward!
If you missed Wednesday’s spring shoe round-up, click on over to Get Your Kicks On, Spring Shoe Trends, and get up to speed on what’s happening right now, in the world of shoes.
Wedges are always a winning shoe choice; they make us taller, our legs look longer, they work back to just about anything – what more could a girl ask for?
In addition to the wedge sandal we know and love, this year’s update; the wooden platform sandal, has us boho girls oh-so-happy!
One issue I have with a wood platform, is the weight of the actual shoe. So instead, I look for “wood-like” platforms that are lightweight. Who wants to walk around feeling like they’re dragging around lead weights? There are brands like Callisto, Kork-Ease, and others, who make super lightweight platforms, with the look of wood, combined with comfort.
I purchased a pair of Kork-Ease years ago. I still have them, and find them to be super comfortable.
New Spring Wedges:
Row 1: Sam Edelman ‘Camilla’ , NEW MARKDOWN! was $130.00, now $89.90, Nordstrom | Charles David ‘Ames’ Wedge, $99.00, Nordstrom | Dolce Vita ‘Linsey’, $140.00, Nordstrom REVIEWED HERE. Row 2: Michael Kors ‘Josephine’, $150.00, Nordstrom | UGG ‘Fitchie’. $120.00, Nordstrom | Charles David ‘Arlington’, $99.00, Nordstrom. Row 3: Via Spiga ‘Wallis’, $225.00, Nordstrom | Vince Camuto ‘Garden’, $129.00, Nordstrom | Donald Pliner ‘Camdyn’, $248.00, Nordstrom.
Many of these styles, are available in black, along with other colors. To me, a nude color is a must-have. A color close to your skin tone, will go with just about anything, and elongates your leg. I threw in the silver pair as I find metallics are difficult find, and this pair is pretty darn cute!
Want to try a wedge, without breaking the bank?
I came across this pair over at Target last week. No, its not real leather – but it sure works if you are looking to give a wedge a try. And it’s only $29.99!
This wood platform was not in the store, but is available online:
While at Target, I came across a few other fab finds I gotta share!
The Kaya (bottom row), is a knock off of the Dolce Vita ‘Anica’ from a past season. The ‘Kensley’, closely resembles the ‘Ayden’. As I recall, these both retailed around $65.00, so this Target find, is a great deal!
How fun is this clutch?
Sam and Libby | $29.99
I am loving the tassel and cute lining. Perfect for a night on the town!
I loved the color combo of this chambray clutch.
MERONA | $16.99
See the cognac in the tassel?
Pair this up with a pair of cognac wedges!
I’m always on the lookout for a lightweight cocoon sweater, to throw over anything from dresses and denim to joggers. I love Michael Lauren cardigans, which run about $110.00.
This next target buy, reminds me of the Sun & Shadow cardigan over at Nordstrom,
KNOX ROSE appears to me, to be Targets attempt to grab the Free People gal. This newer line, has a boho feel, and decent quality for the price. Some of the styles may be more geared toward a younger audience, as is with Free People. If you sort though the racks though, there are some fun pieces for us gals over 40 as well! This poncho caught my eye with it’s neutral colors. It would look great with denim or white denim, paired with a simple white tee and a pair of wedges or lace up sandals.
