Ever since I was a kid, I have had scrawny little legs. It was an awesome trait for kids to poke fun of growing up but as an adult, I have come to accept that my lean extremities are not going anywhere (no matter how hard I try to bulk them up at the gym). This proves to be a fashion challenge during boot season but come warmer weather, there are some advantages, mainly I can wear strapy sandals without any issue of visually chopping my legs off or making myself look short or squaty.
This spring I have been obsessing over ankle strap shoes and with my growing baby belly, wedges are my lifelines for comfort throughout the day. I recently splurged and bought a pair of banana republic army green suede wedges and I cannot take them off. Which, got me surfing the interwebs for more ankle strap wedge options. Luckily, there are so many styles out there, nearly any body type can now rock a pair of these shoes and look fabulous doing so.
My obsession can now be yours, please enjoy.
