I tried on soooooooooooo many wedges and had a blast!
I can’t say the same for the sweet girl that was helping me at Nordstrom.
She really worked for her money that today.
I wanted to buy like 4 different pairs.
But I didn’t.
I’m the picture of restraint.
I only bought 1 pair.
But fyi: I am already campaigning for another pair for my birthday that is next month.
If you are a Nordstrom person, get excited because every single pair I feature today is from Nordstrom. If you’re not a Nordstrom person, you need to be.
Re-evaluate your stance. 🙂
Speaking of Nordstrom, there’s something I’ve been meaning to add to a post for awhile now, and today seems as good of a time as any.
There are lots of you out there who want me to only post Nordstrom things.
I get it, their free shipping and free returns are AMAZING and their customer service is
THE BEST ANYWHERE.
Others of you want me to stop posting Nordstrom so much and post other stores.
(Some of you just aren’t Nordstrom people, and that’s okay!)
Nordstrom is where I shop, and this is a blog about what I wear, so I will continue to post Nordstrom.
I will also continue to post LOFT , GAP, and Anthropologie.
Because it’s what I wear!
I’m a busy wife and mom, I work 3 days per week as a Speech Therapist, and I blog.
So, at this stage in my life, I’m going to continue to post items from where I actually shop.
It just makes my life easier!
And I’m all about making my life easier! 🙂
It doesn’t mean an item I find from another source won’t find it’s way onto the blog…because if I LOVE something, I PROMISE YOU I will put it on the blog and scream and shout about how much I love it and how much you NEED it no matter where it is from.
So, that’s my disclaimer for the day!
Things I love (no matter where they are from) will find their way onto the blog.
It’s just that most of what I love comes from Nordstrom, LOFT, GAP, and Anthropologie.
If you are a wedge person, then you are going to love today’s post.
If you aren’t a wedge person, you need to re-evaluate your stance. Again.
You SHOULD BE a wedge person.
If you’re not a wedge person, it’s usually because 1 of 3 reasons:
1) You think they are going to be uncomfortable.
2) You think you won’t be able to walk well in them.
3) You are already tall and you don’t want to make yourself taller.
The only “reason” I give any validity to is #3. #1 and #2 are dependent upon the wedge you get, and I PROMISE there is a wedge out there for everybody that is comfy and easy to walk in.
Want to see a graphic that will get you all sorts of excited for wedge season?
Well, here ya go.

Wedges SERIOUSLY make you taller, prettier, and skinnier.
Let’s get this wedge party started!
I should tell you that I’m not showing you every pair I tried on. If they weren’t cute, or if they were wayyyyyyyy too tall, or if they weren’t comfy….they didn’t make the cut.
Now before I try on the first new pair, you must know that I still endorse THESE with every fiber of my being. YOU NEED THESE WEDGES, I PROMISE!
But if you already have THESE wedges, then you can get another pair from today’s post.
If you don’t have THESE (I recommend the putty), I would suggest that you get these 1st!
Or just in addition to a pair you get today.
Here they are on my friend Erika! Try to block out the seriously DARLING family and just focus on the wedges. 😉 Soooooooo cute, right?
(They kind of look like they have a green tint in this picture, but they don’t AT ALL. They are a very neutral taupe and go with EVERYTHING.)
I promise you (as does everybody that has them) that you will LOVE them.
I’m here to enable your shoe buying problem.
You’re welcome. 🙂
Right out of the gate, these next ones were the first ones I put on.
THEY are classic and I love how they combine cognac and black together. And the rope detailing on the wedge was so cute.
They were very comfortable and not too high
These are the 2nd pair I put on, and I was TOTALLY loving THEM!
was am CRAZY about ’em. And there are 4 color options, including a black and cognac pair, I just happened to really like this light color combo of the camel and bone.
Something about the light color combo was just different and fresh!
I didn’t know if I was going to love the thick strap across the top once I put them on, but I did!
It made the unique, and they were quite comfortable.
Need some leopard in your life?
Well, THESE are great, especially if you want a really tall wedge.
But beware, these babies are seriously TALL.
Their info says they are the same height as some of the others I tried on, but I don’t agree. I was very comfortable walking in all of the others, but these were noticeably more difficult to walk in. But again, if you are used to heels and tall shoes, you would probably be okay.
So even though they were too tall for me to feel comfortable walking in them, Shay bought them. She can manage a tall wedge without any problem.
And Shay, I would like to take this opportunity to say “I told you so.”
The day I tried them on I called her and told her that she needed them. She said she had seen them the day before and didn’t get them. Later that week she tried them, and she bought them.
Told ya so. 🙂
Check out THESE jade beauties! Don’t you just love the color?
THESE are another option with some color AND they are 25% off!
Sadly, they didn’t have them in the store for me to try on.
I usually prefer a wedge with a strap on the back, but these are too cute!
There are only 2 reviews, but both are 5 stars.
Here is one of them:
am in love with these shoes. So cute and comfortable. I am 6 months
pregnant and was able to wear these all day Sunday. They are great
quality, run true to size, and I love the cork platform. I bought in
black and would love another color. These will be a summer staple!
In addition to the summer wedges,
I also found myself drawn to the new spring and summer booties that are so “in” right now!
Click HERE for this cognac pair that I was a total fan of.
I posted them on facebook and got mixed reviews on them, but I REALLY liked them.
Click HERE for a caged pair that comes in this honey color as well as black.
Click HERE for the below bootie with lots of great reviews!
The sales girl told me they were one of the most popular shoes in the store!
It also comes in camel and blue.
So, the above were the ones I tried on at the store.
Now I’m going to show you some that I ordered and were sent to the house.
Everybody knows about my Putty MUST HAVE Wedges from last year (click HERE).
when I saw that Callisto (the makers of my Must Have) came out with
some new wedge choices, I ordered them back in January to try them out!
I was soooo hoping I was going to love one of them just as much as I
loved my first.
I liked them fine, and they were definitely comfortable, they just didn’t make me scream and shout like my putty
wedges. Still, they were nice, and they might make you scream and
actually LOVED the color combination and really liked how the looked A
LOT! However, they weren’t nearly as comfortable as I had hoped. They
kind of pinched my pinky toe. Boo. Because otherwise I LOVED them.
I’m just not one that is willing to sacrifice comfort for style.
Still, I thought there cute enough that they still needed to be shown!
I wanted to love them, but they were kind of gapey (just act like it’s a word) around the toe area.
Still, if you LOVE your other Callisto’s so much and are dying for another pair, I thought you might be interested.
There are also these Callistos with snakeskin HERE that are super similar to the MUST HAVE pair. They come in Putty and Black!
And if you’re new here, make sure you check out my spring and summer flats post I did a couple of weeks ago HERE.
I think it’s a great post ifIdosaysomyself. 🙂
