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.
