A Fun New Award and Fashionable Friday: Wedges

Friday, February 26, 2010

Sweet Ashley over at  The Ramirez Family gave me the neatest award yesterday... it's called "The Best Part of Waking Up" {yes, the infamous longtime Folger's tagline} and it's given to  the 5 bloggers that you're most excited to see have posted when you log into your dashboard/google reader/etc--OK so I feel pretty important =). If you're always checking someone's blog to see if they've posted, they deserve this award!

Now I have definitely increased the number of blogs I read on a daily basis, but if I can only choose 5 ladies that I just have to know about, this award goes to the following:
Caroline at Simply Smithwick
Elizabeth at A Wedding Story
Taylor at The Undomestic Momma {formerly Jimmy Choose & a Baby Too}

And just because last weekend we got a little taste of spring, I thought this week's Fashionable Friday post should be dedicated to my favorite shoe in the ENTIRE world... wedges/espadrilles! If you're petite like me {5'4"}, they really help give you height but don't kill your legs by wearing the platform heels, for which I am notorious for owning. There are so many great choices for this year--which happen to be budget friendly as well--and for that I am even more thankful! Here are some of my absolute favorites:

Steve Madden Ven Rosette Platform Wedge at DSW {$39.95}
**My sweet Mom bought these for me in black and they are freaking adorable!!
and FYI- free shipping when you spend $35, too =)
GB Rock Band via Dillards {$79}
Michael Antonio Harriety Style via Piperlime {$55}
Breger Slingback Wedge via Aldo {$75}
Seychelles Kip Up Your Heels Wedge Via Nordstrom {$90}
Colin Stuart Patent Wedge via VS {$55}
Colin Stuart Cork Slingback Sandal via VS {$39}
Nine West Getby Sandal via Endless {$69}

Hope you all have a FANTABULOUS weekend--I'll be slaving away at the new house drowning in all things paint, with a bit of a break on Sunday for church and the Bridal Brunch, but I wouldn't have it any other way =)
