What I'm Wearing: Route 66 Sandals from Kmart

Kmart Fashion recently bribed me to do some outfit photos in exchange for free shoes (joking...sort of), so here's what I put together! Yesterday started out chilly then warmed up, so I wore a striped J. Crew sweater, skinny LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's cords and my Route 66 "Miel" cork wedge sandals ($24.99 in teal or tan). I love these sandals because they remind me of Swedish Hasbeens, those so-ugly-they're-cute sandals wore by fashion-forward ladies like Sarah Jessica Parker (here). A bright green H&M crossbody bag, Sorrelli necklace and Shashi bracelet finish my casual look. Check out Kmart for more fun and affordable spring shoe options, they have some surprisingly chic offerings.

Disclosure: I received 3 free pairs of shoes and a giftcard from Kmart in conjunction with this post. Opinions expressed are 100% my own.
You look fabulous honey and I love the wedges and the sweater. Great outfit. :-)

So cute! I love wedges like these for adding some height while still being walkable. I bought a pair of wedges from Kmart last summer that were similar to these and they are so comfy!

Are they comfortable? Any chafing? How does the quality of the materials seem? Will they last a while or are they going to fall apart immediately?

So far, so good. I've worn them for about 6 hours at a stretch, running errands, driving, and no chafing. Straps hit in all the right places. The straps look convincing like leather. They don't hurt my arch either because of the gradual incline and overall low platform. Will they fall apart? I don't see any red flags in construction but only time will tell, I'll keep you posted!

Looks great! Whats the heel height? Is it comfortable?

just measured...3 inches in the back, 1 inch platform in front. I haven't worn them for more than 6 hours at a stretch but so far they've been very comfortable. I can even drive in them, always a plus.

I love almost everything on here but that outfit is just horrid. Also, the pieces by themselves are not cute, either.
