Espadrilles, this summer’s must-have shoe

When I was in college, espadrilles were HUGE, as they were several times before in 20th century fashion trends.

I had a few pairs by Andre Assous, one of which was an olive and white checked pair that I adored.  As in many cases, I donated them or gave them away or something…. and am kicking myself now.

About seven years ago, I purchased another wedge pair in turquoise satin with bright turqoise ribbons to wrap around my ankles.  And I did hold on to those, and probably always will.

But if you were like me, and got rid of all your espadrilles… or you need to try some out for the first time, you’ll find no shortage of options.  And in no shortage of heel heights too!

Daily Covet: Snakeskin + Platform Loafers = Must have!

Women's Authentic Original Covered Pump by Jeffrey, Sperrytopsider.com $250

I know shoes are probably featured on the Daily Covet more often than not but it’s the easiest and the most fun thing to shop for.

Your shoes always fit (save during pregnancy.)  And those days of the month when your clothes don’t fit or you’re feeling a bit frumpy for whatever reason – slipping into a gorgeous pair of shoes can make you feel as good as new again!

And these adorable platform loafers from Sperry Top Sider are no exception.  I’m also making the assumption that are outrageously comfortable and heavenly to wear.  A great multi-season pair of shoes, these are a must-have to wear with jeans, pencil skirts, twin sets and anything else that needs an edge!
