After carefully taking inventory of my closet (am I the only one who feels they have nothing to wear despite lots of shopping?), I decided that I was lacking in the shoe department. Don’t get me wrong — I have plenty of work appropriate heels, flats and riding boots in my closet, but once the summer rolls around I seem to live in either my C. Wonder sandals (which I love) or my Michael Kors open-toe heels (which I love…have served me well…and are very comfortable!).
But after some consideration, I came to the conclusion that my closet was missing the classic wedge. It’s the best of both worlds. All of the convenience of a heel, but way more comfortable.
I’m a bit picky when it comes to shoe shopping. I tend to find something I don’t like about every single pair I see. So when I ran over to DSW to check their selection, I was not immediately hopeful. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for, except that I wanted a wedge sandal.
Naturally, I got distracted from my original mission (easy to do at DSW!) and wandered aimlessly down a few aisles, before I spotted them…a pair of Franco Sarto wedges! Not too high…not too flimsy…and in just the right shade of brown to elongate my legs when I have a tan. Since I own two pairs of Franco Sarto riding boots, I was confident that I would love these wedges too. In less than five minutes I had found my size, tried them on (so comfy!) and was happily on my way to checkout. Now if only I can bring myself to retire my Michael Kors heels!
