At 45, high heels are getting harder and harder to wear. I just don’t have the stamina nor do I want to be in pain. And with ball season in full swing–some that are decidedly outdoors on grass–I just really don’t feel like aerating said grass this year. So, very happy to find blinged-out wedges at DSW and Dillards, which are not only beautiful but are also pretty functional and don’t puncture my heel into soft surfaces. Check out the Adila wedges at DSW ($59.99); and at Dillards, the Adrianna Papell Adore metallic wedges ($119) and the Jessica Simpson Salona Shimmer wedges ($89).
