This spring, Crocs has unveiled their several styles for their spring 2013 collection. They’re perfect for the fashion-minded mother that is always on-the-go and seeks comfort as she journeys through errand after errand. The new collection includes boat shoes, wedges, and sandals.
Espadrilles were originally worn by warriors, peasants, and Mediterranean fishermen. They gained popularity in Catalonia, along with the Basque Country, but they didn’t become a fashionable statement in the United States until the 1940s. In 1948, Lauren Bacall’s character in the film Key Largo donned ankle-laced espadrilles. The espadrilles has come a long, long, long way since its humble beginnings. Now, mostly high-heeled, they are essential for one’s summer shoe wardrobe. Its breezy style harmonizes perfectly with capris, structured pencil skirts, caftans, white skinny jeans, and sundresses.
Inspired by the timeless espadrille wedges, the A-Leigh Linen Wedges ($69.99; Available in Hot Pink/Chai, Black/Chai, Parrot Green/Chai, and Oat/Chai) will add leg lengthening height with comfort, style, and ease. They’re adorable, but the downside is that it has a hook and loop closure that is an issue with many, according to the reviews on their web-site. Also, they run big, so I suggest going down a size.
The Really Sexi Flip Sandals’ ($29.99; Available in Black, Espresso, Island Green, Burst, and Fuchsia) versatility enables one to dress up or down. They’re sleek, slim, lightweight, and they have been my go-to shoe for a myriad of outfits. However, they’re a little uncomfortable from time to time since they sometimes hurt between my big toe and second toe, which has always been an issue for me with any pair of sandals that feature a strap between the toes.
