Europeans amongst you, let’s be honest. This summer the weather has been distinctly average to say the least. All those trendy pool slides I invested in have been renegaded to the back of my shoe closet where they are gathering cobwebs until I migrate further south.
In these transeasonal times it’s virtually impossible to appropriately style your feet. It’s too cold for sandals, but too depressing to be donning your winter boots in June, so what to do? Well, in good ol’ Espanha they have found the perfect solution to our twinkle-toe-woes – the espadrille. I’ve already gushed over Lika Mimika‘s organic leather and locally made ethos here, so I won’t repeat myself, but there is no espadrille producer (that I’ve found) creating such comfortable models in equally gorgeous colours and fabrics. I highly recommend you take a look at a selection of their metallic models, or some of the confectionary coloured pairs below – and here’s an insider’s tip for you, they’re having a mid-season sale as we speak!
