My Go-To Summer Wedges

I’m currently having to pack away all my shoes, bags and clothes in my wardrobe room, which as you can imagine is a slow and painful process because it’s full to the brim of stuff. I’ve managed to pack seven boxes of shoes alone. Some in shoe boxes some without. Now, while this is tediously boring I did find a trend emerging in the sorts of shoes I buy, treasure and promptly wear to death.
It seems I just can’t get enough of the clompy, block heel. I have around five wedge-heeled boots for winter and four for summer.

These four are my go-to sandals. The shoes that will adorn my feet on any date night, girls night, family night and evening venture outside the comfort of my own home.

They all have a time and a place to be worn.

Let me walk you through the line up. 

Black Strappy Wedges – River Island
These are the sexiest of the bunch by far. There’s no platform, just thin straps of leather that crisscross up the foot to the ankle. They are just perfection. Plus, they’re super comfy which is always a win. These wedges are whipped out when I want to sex up a look and dance the night away.

Grey Suede Wooden Heeled Wedges – Dune
Meet my every day wedges. These suede beauties are perfect for work when I want to make a bit more of an effort and wear heels. Again, they’re comfortable so can be worn when running for the train without making me fall arse over tit. I love how the grey suede covers my whole foot, apart from the peep toe, with a simple strap around the ankle before joining the contrasting wooden wedge heel.

Dark Brown Cut Out Wedges – Kurt Geiger
These bad-boys have been in my collection for years. I am a massive lover of Kurt Geiger shoes and would not like to confess to how many pairs I actually own. They are my complete weakness in life. The platform, dark brown leather and cut outs give these stompy and heavy wedges a tough edge when paired with a girly summer dress, that I can’t get enough of.

Tan Buckle Wedges –

French Connection
I guess these look the most summer appropriate. The light tan, the big buckles, the thick straps, you can see why I was drawn to these. These are maybe the most versatile because they can be chucked on with absolutely anything. Jeans and a tee, done. Cute summer dress, sorted. Maxi dress, why not.

So that’s my wedge obsession out in the open. What shoes do you collect en masse?
