You may or may not have noticed our loft is almost finished – clean white floors and walls! It’s almost my own personal studio…except my husband gets to sleep in there, too. Needless to say, everything looks pretty good against white, however, these shoes would look good almost anywhere.

I actually almost bought these online last week and decided I did NOT need another pair of espadrilles. Or any shoes for that matter. But then I went in-store…and accidentally tried them on. They are really comfortable and the straps are really soft on the skin. And they looked great with the ripped jeans I had on. Basically, I lost all willpower.

Did I mention they also give a bit of height with the slight platform? They’d look great with my And Other Stories summer dress or my Asos leather skirt and t-shirt. They also come in leopard print and green (which I was also very, very tempted by – but I was trying to keep to my ‘minimal dressing’ rules!). Ibiza here I come…!

  1. Oh I love them but I love espadrilles full stop. The black and the green are both gorgeous – it's all a matter of head (black) vs heart (green) for me. Sometimes if I can't decide, I end up with neither which isn't really part of the plan.

    1. So true! I went in for the green ones that I saw online…and when I got there, I remembered my vow to be all minimal and sensible with my clothes – and went for black – and I'm actually so glad I did.
