Happy High Heel 4th!

So before I head out for a fun little 4th of July weekend in my sweet hometown, filled with hot summer nights, fireworks and champagne...I wanted to leave you all with a few RED, WHITE, & BLUE lovelies! It's my civic duty to do just that, isn't it?! Well, I'm 99% sure that girls all over this free land will be tossing on sassy sandals, wedges and heels to celebrate firework-filled BBQs and fun family celebrations. To inspire the red, white, & blue-wear I wanted to show ya these delicious patriotic kicks:

I'm majorly crushing on TOMS shoes right now (as you can see from one of my last posts and the 'Aira' Cordones). Well that crush continues with TOMS 'Calypso' wedge and the summery, candy-striped style that it boasts. This canvas peep-toe wedge is a comfy 3 1/2" high, and perfectly paired with your summa'time wardrobe. Plus, with every pair of shoes purchased, TOMS gives a new pair of shoes to a child in need (more TOMS info here).

It's just plain inevitable that I feature Jessica Simpson shoes--that girl has one of the cutest shoe lines my eyes have ever feasted on! For example, stop right now what you're doing and take a look at the Jessica Simpson 'Gaie' wedge. One great espadrille-style wedge with the cute jute detail all around a 4" heel...what more could ya want?!

Bettye Muller's 'Menu' wedge is another hot espadrille-inspired shoozie, wrapped up in raffia and tied with a bow! An easy-to-wear 2 1/2" wedge has a 100% satin upper and a sweet little silver buckle to close it all up and send you on your firecracker way! I don't know about you, but somehow it sweetens the deal that these Bettye Mullers are made in Spain (romantic, huh?)! You may not be heading to Espania for your holiday, but you can walk like a bonita in these wedges just the same!

Ok ok ok, BONUS blue shoe, because I'm wildly into blue shoes of all shades right now. Chinese Laundry's 'Keep Up' pump in gorgeous royal blue has stolen my high-heel heart! Ladies, I've seen these with my own two eyes (not just online) and trust me: they are stunning. Well worth your hard-earned dough they're ready to accompany you to any weekend event this summer (and can be a solid pump for spring too!). Saweeeet!
Hope you all have fun plans for the big-bang 4th of July weekend! Celebrate with some all-American fun and some fabulous heels to sweeten the deal!

  3. The Toms wedge appeals to me quite a bit more than their original style.

  4. I've been trying to find out everywhere how Toms shoes fit. Do you know? I'm a 7 or 7.5 depending on if shoes run small or large. WANT those wedges!



  6. i was thinking about geting those Tom's wedges to wear when I shoot summer weddings. Seems like a good option but I have yet to try them on in the store. just want to make sure they are comfortable since I am usually on my feet for 8 hours during the wedding day.

    I'm really loving the jessica simpson wedges!!

  7. Very cute, perfect for the 4th!
    I'm a rosebud too :)

  8. AWesome picks!
    Happy 4th of July!


  9. Thanks for all the love, ladies! I'm SUCH a fan of the red, white and blue shoes! Kristen: I don't own any TOMS (yet) but have heard they run true to size. I allllways have the same problem--am between a 7.5 & 8 but in these I'd order a 7.5. Plus, I'm thinking they might give/stretch a bit since they're canvas. Hope that helps! Treat yourself! :)
