It’s that transition time, cool in the morning (ok, downright cold) and you bundle all up to head out to start your day. But then by the time lunchtime arrives, the sun comes out full blast bringing with it a warmth that you had almost forgotten existed. So you start to slowly peel away those layers as you wiggle your foot out into those little spots of golden light. It is there that you get that lovely taste of warmth that has you pausing and dreaming of the summer days to come.
Me, I’m starting to flirt with the idea of shedding my winter layers of suede boots and ugh, those seen better days, sneakers (that come to think of it have not seen enough of the gym while it was still cold.) and going for something prettier and lighter to put a new spring in my step.
Now me being a tall girl, I’m not one to teeter around on some spindly heels so I always gravitate towards the classic espadrille as a go to summer shoe. Something about that natural rope style always takes me away to a calmer place. It’s like a vacation for your feet. I’m glad to see that this year there are plenty of styles to choose from ranging from your basic flats, which I adore, to fun and flirty stacked sandal styles that add height while still giving a girl like me (klutzy) much needed stability.
With so many espadrilles styles to choose from I can feel a shoe frenzy coming on. But first I’m thinking a trip to the nail salon for a long overdue Pedi is definitely in order. Another place I hardly saw over the winter months. Uh oh.
Tell me what is your favorite warm weather shoe style?
Side note question: Do you, like me, skip the Pedi’s during the winter?
