When I think about my ideal summer shoe, it would have to be the espadrille. I’ve been wearing espadrilles during the warm weather months for as long as I can remember. Whenever I slip on a pair of espadrilles, I’m instantly reminded of lazy summer days filled with flowing sundresses and sunshine…and that always puts a smile on my face!
Now that I have a daughter, I get to shop for my favorite summer shoes, times two! Our mommy-and-me summer uniforms usually consist of little dresses and espadrilles because it’s an easy, cool look that’s comfortable for both of us. Although, cropped pants look awfully darling with espadrilles too. I love a little flash of ankle…but I digress.
For my little girl, I go the flat espadrilles route…And for myself, more often than not, as well. You know how important it us for us mamas to have flat comfy footwear to run after our kiddos in. So, whether we’re talking about a traditional slip-on style or an on-trend ankle strap pair, flat espadrilles are where it’s at. And I’m loving all the color options that are available. How could you be in a bad mood when you’re rockin’ a pair of sunny colored espadrilles? And lace…let’s talk about lace! Lace is such a hot spring trend. It will definitely carry over into summer. How fun would it be to rock lace in espadrille form?
If flats aren’t your cup of tea, you could go for wedge espadrilles. I, for one, would love to rock a pair of wedge espadrilles with a tank and midi skirt this season. I’m particularly enamored with the ankle wrap style. How many pairs of espadrilles is too many? There’s no such thing in my book! Not when there are so many fabulous styles, colors and prints out there. Who’s with me?
