Happy Spring! Espadrilles Galore

Lacoste "Marthe"
Old Navy Canvas Wedge Sandals
Soludos makes this classic style in  a rainbow of colors and patterns for both Men & Women.
They are also available at shopbop.
Whether or not you believe that Christ was resurrected on this day about 1,980 years ago, we all have reason to celebrate! Easter marks the first real day of Spring (I refuse to accept the Vernal Equinox as a psychologically, religiously, or culturally significant day). This morning, after checking out my adorable Easter basket, I headed out into the backyard to capture some shots of my shoes among the spring blossoms.

This season, espadrilles are everywhere, not just just in our garden. They can be flats, wedges, sky-high platforms, open-toed, peep-toed, sandals, laced-up, with uppers in a variety of materials. I suggest heading on over to Wikipedia to read a bit about the espadrille. This blog has a condensed history and some great pics of celebrities in their espadrilles including JFK and Grace Kelly! This season, both Jennifer Garner and Kate Bosworth have been seen wearing their seersucker Soludos.

After the jump, another pair from my closet plus some more great styles.

Lace-up espadrille wedge with bright colored striped foot bed--I got these on a great sale at the Coach store in San Francisco
Here are a few other cute styles out there:

 Old Navy also has style very similar to the Soludos (and a smidge less expensive). These come in warm, cool and neutral stripes, as well as black, metallic khaki and olive.
The Coach wedges are about the highest shoe I own, but of course there are lots of great options for a (comparatively comfortable) height boost this season.

The stylist behind recommends this fabulous pair:
