In honor of my recent search for new sandals, I figured it was a perfect time to highlight one of my favorite summer trends – wedge sandals! I always like to have about two pairs on hand, at minimum. My last pairs headed into retirement, and again I was on a quest for the perfect wedge.
What does the perfect wedge consist of? Well, for me, a few things: comfort, a cork or braided base, and simple colors that can mix and go with just about any color palette. Your list may be different, but if you follow my advice, you’ll be sure to have a couple pairs of shoes that are in regular rotation!
Let’s start out with a few pairs seen on various celebs. The first – my absolute FAVORITE. Sigh. The Stuart Weitzman Alex.
