SWL- Three Seasons of the Espadrille

This is pretty basic really, but can you name a shoe that crosses over from spring to summer to fall with ease?  If you just said a flip flop, EEERRNNNTT.  That was a sound of a buzzer.  Nope.  If you said boot, you might want to send me an email about style.  The answer is… the espadrille! Ladies, there are lots of you who wear sandals year round, so this post doesn’t ring true for you. But for those of us who live in the frozen tundra that is the Midwest, you might get a good three months out of those sandals.  And then it is back to reality.
That’s where the espadrille can be your best friend.  Many a time these shoes can also be open toed but for maximum wear-ability, finding one in a close toe is a great option.  When it is springtime and not really warm enough to bare the toes…don the espadrille.  Wear it with short-shorts in the summertime for less “exposure.”  And in the fall, pair it with ankle jeans, a tank and a cardigan for casual layers that may or may not be needed for warmth.
Also, consider purchasing in a color.  It’ll give your outfit an extra pop!
Espadrilles…They’re fun, comfortable and as Lloyd points out, great for when you need a pedicure!

White (Re)Cap

Lloyd talks in the next few chapters about the wonderfulness of white jeans.  I’ve written a post on them myself –here.  They really are wonderful.  They are a great blank canvas to create all kinds of outfits.  They go with everything, can be casual or dressy and bring a little oomph to your outfit without overpowering other pieces.  One word to the wise.  Be very careful wearing skinny ankle white jeans.  They are adorable, but you don’t want to go too skinny and tight.  They’ll be see through and unflattering!
To keep things current I made a few new outfits for you to enjoy via Polyvore!
