I remember when I was in high school, I was irrationally self-conscious of my height, or shall I say, lack thereof. All of my girlfriends were much taller, with legs for days. So in an effort to fit in and be more like them, I wore the most hideous platform wedges I could find and I wore them almost every single day. My boyfriends would make fun of me, pointing out that even with a three foot wedge, I was still pretty damn short and they thought it was funny that I wore "blocks" on my feet instead of just accepting the simple fact that yes, I am short.

I'm not sure when it happened. Maybe college when I decided that stomping around campus was a waste of time and I was tired of getting blisters. I decided to try flats, and I've been hooked ever since. At some point, I accepted that I'm 5'2, and that it's okay to be shorter than a lot of other women. I may have trouble reaching the top of a shelf, but I can also squeeze myself into the back of an uber rather nicely. Being short does have its advantages, but I'll leave that topic for another day.

Back to wedges. I haven't owned a pair of real ones since college, but I'm starting to notice them this year for Summer and I think I may have to get a pair. Just one! I'm in search of THE perfect nude wedge that will go with literally everything. In honor of my guy friends from high school (bless their souls), one pair of "blocks" on my feet is enough.

Top Picks:

I also really LOVE these, but they are sold out in my size

Which of these is your favorite? I need some advice!

Will you be wearing wedges this Summer? Speaking of which, have a great Memorial Day! Enjoy, possibly wearing a fabulous pair of wedges.


  1. LOL! I remember getting comments about "Frankenstein shoes" back in the 90s when platform wedges were in and they were all I wore. I definitely think you should give them another chance! I wear them all the time, (although not the platform variety that's popular again). I bought and returned that last pair of stacked heels you showed from (Hinge from Nordstrom) because I didn't think they were comfortable enough for the price! Hope you find something you like!

  2. Too funny about your "blocks"... I remember when I was a teen, I SO wanted to grow to be at least 5'6....I managed to make it to 5'4 lol - but I'm still unable to wear heels for a long period of time - and am amazed at how people manage it! Can't wait to see which shoes you pick <3

  3. you're too cute! I'm the opposite, I'm tall (5'7") and I still wear heels. I just feel more comfortable in them and feel like I walk like a duck in flats hehehe.

    I wear pointy toe stilettos in cooler months and wedges all summer long. I think I have 3 pairs of nude wedges -_- Thinking of buying a brown pair this year :)

  5. I'm 5'2 as well girl so I can totally relate. I'm currently obsessed with lace up wedge espadrilles. I ruined my favorite pair and am looking for replacements. These nude ones, especially the last one is so gorge!


  6. Target has a GORGEOUS pair of wedges I've been eyeing. And for $35 I don't know why I haven't bought them yet.

  7. Thank you so much for your feedback ladies! I definitely am getting a pair, I just need to figure out which! Some look pretty tall, and I'm not used to walking in them anymore! So wish me luck :)
