Given that the thermometer was consistently above 30 degrees in Brisbane this week, light structured shift dresses with this season's tones of blue and green are going to be perfect this summer with a pair of espadrilles.

My affinity for espadrilles (or wedges) came a bit later but I now can't get enough of them. I have pairs for the office when I'm not in the mood for navigating the uneven pavements of Brisbane's CBD and I have pairs for the weekend when heels aren't the best option to battle the grass at garden parties or the risk of a rolled ankle is too high.

Some males I've talked to have a particular distaste for them (although I can't figure out why - clearly they are deluded). What do you think about espadrilles? - Yay or nay?
