Among the many, many perks of the endless summer that marks L.A. weather is the chance to wear easy, breezy shoes all year long. Truth be told, I’m a heel girl, but the wedge has always been daunting for me. Something happens to my balance while teetering atop wedges that doesn’t occur as I manipulate the sidewalks in (non-platform) heels (even the big guns). That’s it! It’s the platform that ruining my equilibrium! So, in an effort to unlearn some bad wedge habits, and to correct my shoddy wedge balance, I’m wearing wedges. Like, all the time. If you’ve got the legs to pull it off, they can be fabulous with shorts, but I’ve been loving mine with long skirts or skinny pants. What might otherwise be too fancy instantly gets toned down a notch by swapping out heels for wedges. Take your pick from some of my favorites this season:
The “Belize” wedge by from B.F.T. by Barefoot Tess comes in this incredible shade of icy white with a lilac heel (among other colors) and is the perfect go-to wedge that pairs easily with everything from jeans to minis. I adore the resort vibe, the sky-high yet comfortable 3.5″ wedge heel, and the subtle, wraparound, snakeskin details that make this a bit more upscale.
Actually, B.F.T. by Barefoot Tess is pretty much my favorite brand for wedges this season, and I’m also rocking the “Montego Bay” espadrille raffia wedge, which is a little more casual and amazing for the boardwalk. I actually like wearing mine with skinny sweatpants from Monrow or Free City on Shopbop. Loving this look!
