Wedges. There's never been a more classic spring shoe than the wedge. Although they can make walking gracefully a bit difficult without practice, when worn correctly, they're a piece of art.
I love all of the following equally and would gladly welcome any of them into my closet. Here at A Blonde Ambition, we don't discriminate when it comes to shoes.

Here are a few self-learned tips for wearing wedges, if you're a newbie:
1. Make sure they fit correctly. You want them snug. More snug, actually, than your regular heels.
2. When walking in wedges, lean forward slightly in your stride. This keeps you from looking like a mule, plodding along the farm : )
3. Start small, then work your way up. Start with a 2 inch "kitten" wedge. Once you're comfortable with that, take off the training wheels and go for the classic 3-4 incher. You'll be walking sky high in no time.
4. Try them with flare leg jeans for a retro, fun look this summer. Just make sure to pair the look with a simple and fitted top, to look "retro chic" instead of...well...just old.
I'd tell y'all how I feel about them, but I think this post speaks for itself. Big, colorful, insanely high shoes...I'm 5'4", ya'll! These are a God-send!
What say you about the wedge? Classic or cumbersome?
Be blessed, lovelies-
