Riviera Chic

In Shoes on January, 14 2011

The freezing months of Winter make taking a vacation to a warm place very appealing.  The thought of going away for this long weekend, honoring Martin Luther King Jr., makes me want to only look at resort collections; however, I’ll be staying in the city.  Just because I’m not going to be in Miami and Palm Beach until February doesn’t mean that I can’t fantasize about what I’ll be wearing.  For my next trip to the sunshine state, all I want is a pair of Tory Burch “Striped Canvas Espadrilles“.

The Miami Beach boardwalk is one of my favorite places to take a long walk: you can see all of the amazing hotels on one side with the beautiful beach on the other.  The first time I walked the boardwalk, I had on a pair of pumps-bad idea.  Now I know better to either wear flats or sneakers, and I haven’t made that mistake since.  The Tory Burch espadrilles will be perfect for walking, and are a warm-weather necessity.  I love high-heel espadrilles, but if I can’t wear them, these Tory Burch flats are the best option.  A girl can’t wear heels all the time, can she?  Well, I can.

The “Striped Canvas Espadrilles” come in three color combinations: navy and white, pale blue and natural, and latte and natural.  I love all three colors, but the navy espadrilles have a riviera-chic inspired look, which is very now.  The navy espadrilles are embroidered with the signature Tory Burch logo -it feels like I see the logo everywhere I go- in bright red which gives the shoe a pop of necessary color.

Slip on these adorable shoes with navy blue shorts, a navy blue and white striped quarter-length t-shirt, a nude hobo bag, and a mixture of silver and gold bangles for a day of fun in the sun.  Keep the sun out of you’re eyes with a Ray Ban shade in either blue, white, or black.

Not only do the espadrilles look great, but the price of them are great too.  The espadrilles are available on for $95.
