Step Out This Spring in a Pair of Wedges

Published in: Fashion, Sponsored Post

This post is sponsored by Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse, and it’s all about spring wedges! For information about my posting policy, please see my Disclaimer.

After a blustery winter spent burrito’d in cat lady socks and knee-high boots, my feet are ready for warm weather. Woo-hoo, sandal season! Here we come!

Winter footwear is fun and all, but I’m partial to spring and summer because 1) I get to show off my pedicures (#priorities) and 2) I can finally wear wedges. :)

Yeah, I’m a bit of a shoe hoarder… Wedges, preferably platforms with a good cork heel (I’m only 5’1″, so I like the height), are some of my favorite shoes this time of year.

For high heels, they’re surprisingly comfy. Like, I know that I could spend a day walking around San Francisco in wedges, no problem, but I couldn’t imagine doing it in stilettos.

Plus, if/when it starts drizzling or a heavy fog rolls in (summers in SF can be COLD!) and I’m wearing cork wedges, they’re naturally waterproof.

In spring and summer, you’ll pretty much find me in a pair of wedges every single day. No matter what I have lined up, it’s not hard to find a pair that works with whatever outfit I’m wearing.

When I have a work meeting in the city, I’ll often don a colorful dress and cardigan, and slip a tan pair like these Franco Sarto Sherry wedges ($59.99) on my feet.

Being neutral, I don’t think they aren’t too flashy for a business meeting, but the detailing, in this case the crossed straps, dresses them up a little while giving them some personality.

On weekends, that’s when my fun wedges come out to play. I might put on that same colorful dress, but make a few little changes to the ensemble to take it from work to play.

Or Sunday brunch, which is one of my favorite things!


I’ll just swap out the cardigan for a vintage denim jacket, the bib necklace for a pair of dangly earrings, and the nude wedges for something spunkier, like these navy blue Yvonne wedges by Jellypop ($39.99).

I think the color and detailing give it some weekend sass and keep it from looking overly stuffy or formal.

If you’re interested in either of these pairs, or if you’re otherwise on the prowl for a pair of wedges to update your spring wardrobe, Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse has a wide selection, with many pairs under $50.

And now through April 30 they’re running an online promotion. Purchase $79.99 in shoes and get $20 off with code SPRING20. A $99.99 purchase gets you $30 off with code SPRING30, and a $199.99 purchase gets you $75 off with code SPRING75.

Happy spring shopping!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

      The answer to many of life’s most perplexing questions: shoes.

      What is the meaning of life? Shoes.
      Why am I always hungry? Shoes.
      Why are they splitting the last Divergent book into two movies? Shoes.

      LOL! I really like the extra height from these. This is how tall I imagine myself in my head.

      Happy Monday, btw. MEOW!

      • Kim says:

        HAHA! And I always say “sleep”! You are definitely a shoe ninja. If they make a movie about your life, it’ll totally be at least 2 parts. ;)

        I do hate that trend of splitting books for more movie cash, though. I think people got really excited about the Lord of the Rings being a triology (rightly so) but it’s really Harry Potter that set the stage for (unnecessary) splitting. The Hobbit is the absolute worst possible example. :(

        That said, happy Tuesday. MEOW!

    Gee, I never realized you were about my height (I’m 5’1/2″ lol)! I love your new sandals. Cork soles are so comfy! At that price I need some, too :)

    Although I’ve been on a bit of a flats kick for a while, I do love me some wedges when I get the chance! The tan ones here are lovely – sadly, we’re going into winter shoes in these lands!

    I was so excited to get some wear out of my sandals last week! A couple 70 degree days, but let’s be real, I was wearing sandals when it was in the 50s.

    We’re supposed to get something like three inches of snow tomorrow though. WTF.

    Very cute! Although I can’t wear heels (knee trouble), I checked out the site for cute shoes. Unfortunately, nothing in size 9.5 slim, and only 19 shoe styles in 9.5 narrow, with most of them sold out in that size! It’s almost as hard to find cute shoes in very narrow sizes as it is to find an exercise bra in a DDD+ cup :-(

    Both are great! I’ve got my eye on a couple of wedges too!
