Spring Dress and Metallic Espadrilles

Dress// Espadrilles (lots of retailers but linking the site on sale, similar leather option)
Bag// Lip Color (in babe, it's on sale!)
Shop the Look:
The one item I really want to highlight in today's post: these gold metallic espadrille wedge shoes. This style of shoe is such a summertime classic and has been around for decades! I find them to be very comfortable and stylish. They also pair nicely with most of my spring and summer outfits. 

There are a ton of different brands that make this style of shoe. I have worn this style of espadrilles from brands like J.Crew and Soludos. However, a few summers ago, I ordered Castaner. Unbeknownst to me at the time, Castaner is the brand to buy when it comes to espadrilles!

I originally ordered these metallic espadrilles to replace an old, worn pair of Soludos. I had no issue with the Soludos brand and almost ordered the same exact pair I was replacing, but spotted these metallic espadrilles and had to have them! 

Once I got them in the mail, I thought they felt so much nicer than my Soludos. So I got my Soludos out to compare and sure enough, the Castaner espadrilles were better made. Not to say Soludos are poorly made by any means, they are a great brand, but the Castaner shoes were next level! 

All that to say, if you are looking for a comfortable, classic, neutral summer shoe, this is IT! They run true to size and are very comfortable. 

This entire ensemble reminded me of the movie The Talented Mr. Ripley. I could see Gwyneth Paltrow's character, Marge, wearing something of the sort traipsing around the Italian coast. If you haven't seen the movie, not only is it well done and well-acted, but oh my goodness is it FILLED with eye candy. The clothing and sets are just beyond. I think it came out in the '90s but is set in the 1950s and the outfits are just spectacular. 

I shared this dress on Instagram and someone sent me a DM saying it reminded her of the dress Liesl wears in The Sound of Music, and I also totally see it because it has a very similar silhouette!
