i made the mistake of convincing myself that spring was on the way and then mother nature was all, 'YEAH RIGHT, SUCKER! here's some more snow for you.' so i've completely resigned to wearing sweaters and boots basically forever. which is cool and all, except i'm bored to tears with wearing the same thing day after day. so, i'm slowly adding some less wintry items into my outfits, like say color or a non-boot shoe. both of which take this otherwise simple jeans-and-a-sweater outfit to a slightly less snooze-inducing level. a little pop of grapefruit, a printed wedge, and a bubblegum lip step it up just enough for me.
also, i bought these wedges several years ago, before i was a real wedge/heel-wearer. they haven't received much wear, but you better believe they will these days. my feet have finally been trained to not throb within 2 minutes of wearing anything other than a flat shoe, so i'm finding myself reaching for them more and more. what i love most about them is that they can take an otherwise simple outfit (jeans and a sweater) and dress it up just enough with the addition of the right accessories and a lip color. every girl should own a pair of animal print wedges (or any type of shoe!), if you ask me. these wedges are old, but i found some similar pairs here, here, here, and here.
