I did not know what I was getting myself into when I went to the new Milk Bar in DC’s CityCenter. Honestly I didn’t do much research about it, I had just heard about it and seen cute photos of the soft serve on Instagram. Being the ice cream & sweets fiend that I am, I knew I needed to try it.

The second post in my ultimate guide to espadrilles — wedge espadrille sandals! I like a wedge I can walk in. Nowadays, I’m much more inclined to buy a lower wedge so that I can actually walk around in it, versus a high one that I have to bring a set of flats along with me.
DC has what I call “career enders” meaning uneven pavement, missing bricks in a brick sidewalk — basically anything that you could just step on wrong that could easily injure your ankle and therefore end your career. Career just meaning like doing anything physical for a while. I probably picked that saying up from my husband.
Personally, I want all types of espadrilles this season, flats, wedges, open-toe, closed-toe — I’m on the espadrille train. They are just such a versatile shoe. Not too casual, but not too dressy. Or they can dress up a casual look, or dress down a dressier look. How does one shoe do all of that!?!
To shop, you can click below, or on each image above. Many come in several colors, but again, they are selling out kinda fast so don’t hesitate. You can always return them if they don’t end up working out.
WEDGE ESPADRILLE SANDALS

It is finally warm on a regular basis. The ups and downs of March and April were killing me! One day I’d wear a sweater, the next I’d be peeling layers off. Now spring shopping is in full swing, and this year it’s all about espadrilles! If you weren’t an early adopter last year, this year they are hard to resist. Espadrilles are coming in all shapes, sizes, colors, and heights!
I was kicking myself for not getting a pair last year because there were so many times I had an outfit that they’d be perfect for. This year, I was not going to make the same mistake. I said in my book The Life Edit that you know something is a necessary item in your wardrobe when you get dressed and wish you had that item multiple times. Then you know it’s time to invest in that item. I thought about these black boots for a year before I took the plunge and have never regretted it for a second.
During my own hunt for the perfect espadrilles, I’ve scoured all the shopping sites and have come up with my favorite styles to share with you. Today are some of my favorite open-toe flat espadrilles. But I’ve got a few more espadrille posts for you in my ultimate guide to espadrilles. I’ll cover closed-toe espadrilles and the wedge espadrilles as well!
Just click on each image above to shop the shoe! Several of them come in multiple colors, and they are selling out fast. Some of the ones I want are already gone in my size! I currently have two pairs for summer, but am on the prowl to get a few more.
Also, don’t miss the Loeffler Randall 20% off sale (off your entire order), it ends tonight! Use the code FRIENDS20 at checkout. I got myself these espadrilles, but I also love these clogs, these wedges, these oxfords, and these sandals.
