Inspiration + Shopping: Espadrilles

I could lie and say that my my espadrille obsession is fueled by warmer spring temperatures and the lure of days spent by the water. But like I said, that would be a lie. The real reason I’ve been aimlessly putting espadrilles in my online shopping carts and pinning pictures nonstop is because I’m trying to channel my inner Jules Sarinana from Sincerely Jules. That laid-back, effort-less, wanderlust style has me wishing I was planning a summer long beach trip and packing only white sundresses, cut-offs, breezy tops and of course, espadrilles.

My reality is vastly different and seriously less glamorous but hey, a girl can dream. Well that and buy the espadrilles, which is what I intend on doing, if only I could settle on a pair.

One thing I am planning on doing once I get back to regular sized clothes is pairing down my closet. More simple basics and less stuff that I’ll only wear once (or for one season) or that just aren’t me. A simple pair of espadrilles won’t go out of style in a hot second and I’m thinking if I spend a teeny bit more, they’ll last longer than just this summer or at least until we can plan a {semi-glamourous} beach vacation – a la Sincerely Jules.

The best part about this simple summer staple is that you can find a great pair at every price point. I’m thinking of doing a tiny splurge on these Soludos (just like the ones in the middle right picture) but as much as I’d love to have a pair of the black and white Chanel version, they’re not quite in my budget (these Tory Burch ones are WAY more reasonable – still a little splurge but nothing crazy). Here’s a round-up of pairs from lace-up to slip on, wedge to flat and more.

Shopping: Pumped Up Kicks

Like pretty much every other girl on the planet, I love shoes. Ask my husband and he’ll probably say I have an unhealthy obsession with them. That or I have a total aversion to cleaning them up in my closet, either way, he think it’s a problem.

Things are only going to get worse since fall is coming up and I’m looking to add a couple new pairs of pumps to my collection(don’t worry, I’m not going to start dressing all seasonally inappropriate on here – I know it’s still a million degrees and swampy outside).  You know, it’s time to replace the pairs with the rundown heels and scuffed up toes for some fresh pep in my step (it’s like school supply shopping only better).

I’m really big into incorporating color into my shoe game since I keep a lot of my wardrobe pretty basic. Grabbing a versatile heel in a bright color is, by far, the easiest way to make a seriously simple outfit a little more interesting and fun. So here’s a handful of options you can’t go wrong with that will work year-round, better yet – they are all under $150. I’ve already snagged #2 in pink (can’t wait for them to arrive, p.s. – they’re 25% off right now) and I’m thinking about picking up the Sole Society pair (#7) in black since they are on big time sale.
