For the love of espadrilles

Style is something that is constantly evolving. I don’t know about you, but I have found that with time my aesthetics tend to change. What I once disliked, I’ve come to reconsider as I get older. Of course, this doesn’t apply to everything, but there are definitely items that I’ve grown to love.

When talking about style, I mean not only fashion and way of dressing, but also lifestyle choices, way of approaching different situations , etc.

Now that I have more free time on my hands, I find myself reminiscing about those times when my dad would give me advice on how to look more elegant, and I’d carelessly ignore it becauseI knew better. Well, most of the time he wasright, but he obviously can’t know that 🙂

Examples of his wisdom include his advice on packing smarter. I used to take my whole wardrobe wherever I went (even for a weekend retreat), and he’d always tell me to be more selective, since I wasn’t going to produce a fashion show. After having to carry multiple heavy suitcases by myself, I learned the hard way that the diva-style travelling was not for me. He still likes to make fun of me about that.

Or the times I wanted to pull off the Victoria Beckham travel look and wear heels while taking a flight. It didn’t take multiple experiences like that for me to learn that this was not for me.

Talking about shoes, this has been an area in which my tastes have changed greatly, if not the most. And today we’ll be covering espadrilles.

I didn’t really appreciate the beauty of these shoes when I was younger. Perhaps it was the “French chic” Pinterest boards that inspired me, or my need for a summer shoe that looks elegant, while adding a bit of comfortable height, but I have grown to love them. So much so that I bought two pairs from Sezane and have already declared them my ultimate summer shoes. Below you can see one of my looks wearing espadrilles.

I’d love to hear what you think about this kind of shoes, so feel free to share.

The espadrilles I have are: Melanie & Ilda
