Even though I could have sworn that 2011 just arrived, here it is May already. When I look out my window, instead of mountains of snow I actually see green grass and colorful flowers have finally arrived.
Mother Nature seems to still be deciding on whether or not to stick with the warmth and sunshine, but I've decided that it's definitely time to pack away the thick coats and winter boots for good. My t-shirts and capris have had just about enough of the waiting game and my feet are desperate to get back into sandals.
This year my tootsies are even more excited, because ever since they were introduced to the stylish and affordable options at Jenlinn.com back in January, they know that they are going to be able to look good for any occasion this spring.
Last month's Jenlinn.com giveaway focused on the adorable Platform Wedge Sandals that they have to offer and just how hot they are this season. From the lower, neutral-toned classic styles to the trendier, brightly-colored, sky-high variety, wedge sandals are going to be everywhere this year.
I, for one, am thankful to be prepared.
The ACTIVE-1 Platform Wedge Sandals in black are just as fashionable and chic as I had thought they would be... but, in my opinion, look even cuter on than they did in the picture. I love the peep toe criss-cross design and the combination of the 1" platform and 3" raffia-covered wedge heel give me a little extra height that my short stature needs.
The hidden elastic does a great job of ensuring a comfortable fit and I really appreciate the adjustable side buckle, as I was able to shorten the strap a notch or two until they were perfect on my feet. They go great with a skirt or dress, as pictured above, but they also are adorable thrown on with a pair of jeans to head out to meet friends or take the kids to the library. I love the versatility of this style!
Available in three different versions (the ACTIVE-1, ACTIVE-2, and ACTIVE-3) and nine different colors, these sandals truly can be customized to suit your style. Whether you choose the criss-cross on the ACTIVE-1, the buckle on the ACTIVE-2, or the studded ribbon decoration on the ACTIVE-3, the hardest part about selecting which wedges to purchase is making a decision on your favorite.
However, maybe a style slightly dressier than the ACTIVE line is what you're looking for this year - something that will make an even bigger statement when you head out the door.
In that case, an equally fashionable collection (but with an extra inch of pizazz) has to be the ADORE Platform Wedge Sandals.
With the criss-cross bands of the ADORE-2 or the open toe with ankle cross design of the ADORE-3, these 4" wedge heels are sure to be a fun addition to any spring wardrobe. With color options ranging from black to white to blue, these shoes feature a synthetic lining and outsole that will keep your feet cute and comfortable all season long.
As the weather gets warmer, it's time to treat your toes to a pedicure and a great pair of sandals. Whether your style is a little more laid back or a little more wild the ACTIVE and the ADORE wedges from Jenlinn.com will have you looking great... and, for only $29.99, it might be awfully hard to not pick up a few pairs. There are so many different colors to choose from!
And, if deciding between the options at Jenlinn.com seems difficult now, just wait! They are in the process of adding hundreds, yes hundreds, of new styles to their site - just keep checking back and you'll find something new each week to catch your eye!
