I am not confident in heels.
I have a really hard time walking in high heels! I try to practice going back and forth in my room, but I just never seem to be all that steady. Back up in DC, walking down the cobblestone sidewalks was a near nightmare! Of course, I do wear high heels (when absolutely necessary), but I’m a complete klutz. It’s practically a miracle that I haven’t broken an ankle yet.
(There are times when I nearly twist my ankle wearing flats… my heels sometimes slips off the shoe and I’m stumbling to maintain my balance.)
But I do long to get a little bit of height! Recently, I’ve been turning to wedges. They are much easier to walk in than a traditional heel. I also think wedges go with just about every summer outfit. White jeans? Yes. Maxi dresses? Yes. Summer dresses? Yes. They can even (sometimes at least) be worn with shorts.
My current go-to wedges are a pair of Ann Taylor espadrilles that I’ve had for years, the mid-wedge Jack Rogers in platinum, and the Lilly Pulitzer ‘Good as Gold’ wedges.
These provide just a smidge of height. I love wearing them with my Lilly dresses when a regular flat just won’t do!
My mom got these wedges a long time ago and I was always lusting over them. I finally decided to get them for my graduation. Wedges are great for summer parties. Heels make walking on grass impossible… or at least not that much fun. (Does anyone else hate that sinking feeling you get when you’re in heels on grass? Yikes!)
The Lilly McKim wedges also look like a great option. I have a few pairs of the McKim flats, but the wedge totally jazzes it up a bit! Perfect for the beach, right?
Is anyone else not that comfortable in heels? Have you tried opting for a wedge instead?
