summer feet: espadrilles

I wanted a pair of classic espadrilles for summer, something light and easy to slip on, bright and with that air of being just the thing for wandering around Mallorca or Barcelona.


It took me a while to decide, but I went for these aqua striped espadrilles from TOMS, which have that Spanish touch of the jute edging. IMG_5159


I think I must be one of the last people to get a pair of TOMS, they are so ubiquitous. There’s no arguing, though, that it’s an admirable company and a comfortable shoe. I find the plain ones you see everywhere a bit ugly, actually (even sometimes a lot ugly), but the bright print and the braided jute edging fixes everything for me, it seems.

into: hot pink…evidently

I don’t think of myself as having a special affinity for pink but I seem to have kind of a lot of it. Where by pink I do not mean pink at all. I mean hot pink.


How do these things happen? Many of these items are by no means new, either. This is an old, slowly developing pattern that I am only just recognizing. A few items lined up in my field of vision and there was just no denying it: nothing out of control, nothing unhealthy, but a definite pattern. Well. What can I say? I am not against neon at all, in certain contexts. More certain contexts than I thought.

Some combination of always wanting to have been an 80’s aerobics instructor and Marc Jacobs, I guess.


And this is not even getting into coral. We still need to talk about coral. Just wait until you see the swimsuit I found, it is nearly blinding.
