On The Wedge

If you live in Minnesota, it might be hard to imagine spring shoes with all this snow. But it’s March now, which means a new season is right around the corner (yay). One of my favorite spring and summer shoes is the espadrille rope wedge. They are sexy, fun, comfortable, and adorable. I can remember my mom wearing similar styles when I was growing up, so I guess there’s a sense of nostalgia there as well. What I love about them is that they work with almost anything. Jeans, dresses, shorts, skirts-add an espadrille and you have instant style. I happened to take a lap around the shoe department at Target and was stunned at the variety they had to offer in these sandals. Here is just a sampling of what they’re featuring this season.

Mossimo Patience Espadrille Sandal $24.99
I love a good slide. Super easy to take on and off, and the platform is so comfortable.

Mossimo Pearlynn Espadrille Wedge $34.99
Love these!! The gladiator style is still on trend this season, so these are a great bet.

These are the Christian Louboutin Barcelona Gladiator Platform. Kate Beckinsale wears these and I have always wanted a pair. The Pearlynn is almost identical and much less expensive.

Mossimo Twyla Espadrille Wedge $24.00
The floral pattern is super cute and this shoe is available in other prints. The perfect footwear for a summer date night.

Mossimo Pam Rope Wedge with Braided Strap $24.99
These are a great neutral wedge and can be worn with practically anything. The thick, braided ankle straps make them super sexy.

Jennifer Aniston is often seen in a very similar pair from Stuart Weitzman (the Alexa)

Xhileration Teresa Espadrille Wedge $29.99
The patent leather gives it a very edgy feel and the color combination is awesome.

All styles (except for the Barcelona and the Alexa) available at Target

I don’t know about you, but spring cannot come fast enough. Guess it’s about time I get that pedicure!

Holiday Wish List

I thought it would be fun to do a holiday wish list. There are so many fun, amazing, cool things I would love to have. This is just a “wish” list (don’t worry mom-I don’t intend to purchase everything on this). Some items are practical and some are just outrageous, but they are all lovely items that have captured my attention. Enjoy!

Fashionable Books

I love books. I read at least 2 books a week, and I’m not talking ebooks. I mean real, hold in your hands and flip the page, books. I love buying them, I love collecting them and I love displaying them. Coffee table books are the best for display, and I am especially drawn to the ones about fashion. There just so very pretty!
