It’s starting to look like spring around here but not feeling like it just yet…I’ve had to pile on the layers just to survive the biting windchill. A benefit to a looser-fitting, drapey trench is being able to layer other jackets underneath without looking too bulky. I put these both on out of necessity for warmth, but ended up really liking the pairing of brown and gray together!
I wore this same outfit last weekend traveling both to and from NYC, with booties instead of the espadrilles. I had sweats in my bag for the car ride since I don’t like sitting too long in skinny jeans, but these were actually so comfy I never had to change.
These Soludos shoes have been perfect for our in-between weather lately. The leather uppers keep feet fully covered, while the woven espadrille bottoms help outfits instantly feel more spring / summer. Other features I love include the non-slip rubber soles, and the 1″ platform for a little extra height. It was tough deciding between all the versatile color options (also love the “dolphin grey”)!
I found these platforms to be a lot more comfortable out of the box than my ankle strap ones from this post, but again I think it will depend on how well your feet fit into their whole sizes (please start making half sizes, Soludos!). I’m so glad I tried on both sizes 5 and 6 instead of just sizing up per the item listing. I’m usually a 5.5 in most US brands, and found the 5s to be snug but the better fit amongst the two. The 6s were a bit loose, and I’d expect leather shoes to further stretch out some with wear. I’ve been wearing mine in size 5 and already feel them stretching a bit to become even more comfortable.
I wear my minimal Baublebar necklaces so much, I finally picked up another one shown below (on final sale) with a pretty and versatile white mother-of-pearl stone. If you like this style of jewelry, Nordstrom also has tons of new Kendra Scott markdowns at 40 to 50% off. This seems to be quite the sale weekend as my sunglasses are marked down as well for a good price – mine here are the “brown” gradient lens and they go with nearly everything, but I also love my mirrored blues!
