charlotteolympia2012.pngOn a rainy Monday morning, this week's "dream on" is a pipedream in more ways than one: a shoe that's resolutely designed for good weather, and for those with a spare £550 to blow on unpractical but utterly gorgeous shoes. The espadrille platform marks them out as summer only shoes, and the print is just too adorable for words...

Made by Charlotte Olympia, the 'Dolores' pump is covered with a fashionably pastel-toned cotton fabric and decorated with a Brazilian-themed print incorporating palm trees, sea creatures and tropical fruit - it absolutely has to be seen close-up to be fully appreciated, but the overall effect is simply stunning. The sun-tanned raffia weaving at the toe completes the look.

So, let's all take a moment to detach from our desks, or daily commute and the goddamn rain and enjoy the though of the Brazilian sun beating down on our backs as we recline in these beautiful shoes! Then wake up, smell the coffee and get back to work...
