If I were to dream up the perfect summer shoe, I think I would come up with something very much along the lines of this espadrille design by Castañer. They just look so... fresh. And comfortable. And beach-like. Remind me again why I'm sitting in an office sweltering in the heat rather than sitting on a beach somewhere wearing these shoes?!

The colour and material combination of the blue fabric cross-over, brown leather ankle strap and straw wedge heel make these slightly nautical, slightly preppy and very classic. I see myself wearing these for many summers ahead! They have 30% off right now at My-Wardrobe and come in at a pretty reasonable £92.
