Don't judge me - I'm considering buying a pair of old lady shoes

Seriously, when did Aerosoles start making cute on-trend shoes? I wouldn't have been caught dead in a pair of their shoes back in my twenties, but let's face it, they were known for their orthopedic-looking clunkers! As I get older, though, I've started to put more stock in comfort when it comes to footwear (sad face), but it's a lovely thing when you stumble upon something that can fill both needs - comfort and STYLE.

Some other cute wedges I've been drooling over are these, these, and these.

I also tried on these shoes made by Sofft while in NC last week, and was in love love love. Seriously, people, they felt like slippers. And while they aren't the sexist-of-sexy shoes (I know, wont be mistaken for Loubies), they were darned lovely! The nude patent is right in my wheelhouse, and made my stumpy legs look longer than I thought possible. They didn't have my size in stock (took a 7 in these, usually waiver between a 7 and a 7.5), so they didn't come home with me to Chicago. That being said, there is a Nordstroms a few blocks from my office, and despite my current self-imposed shopping ban, I plan to hit it up next week. Hey, these are a smart INVESTMENT, therefore they should be exempt from my ban. Right?

Don't forget to enter my inaugural giveawey to wine a MAC gift card here, and have a lovely Friday!


  1. I love those wedges! Aerosoles are super comfy too and relatively inexpensive.

  2. Go for it! I've got some Aerosoles boots now, and they are really great, good looking and comfortable, and they were a good value, too.

  3. I went to the Naturalizer outlet a few weeks ago and Mr. M said, "isn't this an old ladies's shoe store?" But they, too, are starting to put out more stylish designs with the same comfort level of their shoes always had. Those Aerosole wedges are CUTE! Go for it! You're feet will thank you~
