I am totally obsessed with men wearing espadrilles. I think it’s easy, relaxed, and different. I mean, I don’t know many men who wear espadrilles. I could probably bet my life, if I asked men I know, about wearing espadrilles, 98% probably wouldn’t know what I was talking about.

But as summer moves in at the pace of a tortoise, I love the idea of the relaxed & easy look of a man in an espadrille.

ladies & gentleman… let me in on your thoughts. yay or nay to the mens espadrille?

 

oh yeah… bae is moving to NYC, and one thing I can’t wait to do is change his wardrobe from “ATL shawty” to “I’m stylish, and I owe 75% of that to my girl.”

*he’s going to kill me when he reads that. hehe.

Obsessed with… ESPADRILLES

 

All Black Flatform Kid Espadrille

brand: all black (MUST HAVE)

every summer I find something to fall in love with. in 2014, it was mara hoffman swimsuits, 2013 it was wedge sneakers, 2012 henna, and 2011 fringe, leopard print, and bucket bags… pysch, that last part, I’ve been in love with those things since 1984.

but… 2015 it’s all about the ESPADRILLE!

an espadrille works as a comfy summer shoe, for walking these NYC streets, and rippin’ n runnin’ through summer festivals all the while giving you fashionable footwear.

here are my favorite picks for summer espadrilles:

valentino psychedelic camouflage canvas

brand: valentino

 

mara hoffman jaguar espadrille

brand: mara hoffman

 

 

chloe striped suede fringed espadrille

brand: chloe

 

House of Harlow Carolyne Espadrille

brand: house of harlow

vintage in december

 

When I think about growing up, and being a teenager, I remember HATING winter. Probably because I wasn’t into vintage fashion back then, who knows… oh, and because summers in Philly are pretty much epic. But today, I can say I appreciate the season. It’s just that time of year that makes me grateful to have/ had two great women in my life. My grandmother’s, the late great Amelia Virginia Wright, and the amazing Ira Mae Salter. Both taught me their personal definition of style and I am so thankful.
