Crazy for Espadrilles!

Espadrilles are the perfect option to pair with your sundress or bermudas this summer. A great alternative to regular flip-flops, they are comfortable, casual, and give you a little height, which can make your legs look a lot longer (especially if the entire shoe is nude).

They originated in Pyrenees, where they were outfooted the soles of peasants. Nowadays, they're everyone and in every price budget. How do you know if it's an espadrille or not? The Jute rope is the key ingredient on the heel of the shoe. This fiber is natural and eco-friendly. A high heel or wedge not your thing? Don't fret, they also make espadrilles completely flat just like your flip flop! Happy shopping!

These espadrilles from Stuart Weitzman are perfect and a favorite of Jennifer Aniston. Sadly enough, I can't afford their $365 price tag. Fear not though, I found and purchased a look-a-like!

Steve Madden espadrille for $80. A steal in comparison!
