In less than 24-hours, I've gone from forest fire to freezing cold, and it's reflected in my wardrobe. Did you notice that after I championed the Birkenstock in my last post, up popped Sam Cam in a pair, in Mallorca? But readers, I have an admission... I've also been embracing the espadrille. If you can't be bothered to schlep to Spain, there's a great website called er, Espadrille where you'll find a decent selection of summer shoes. I like this pair of olive wedges and they'd look great with my imaginary outfit above.
