Penelope Chilvers Espadrilles
The British designer Penelope Chilvers is perhaps best known because Kate Middleton wears her Spanish riding boots. But she's also made her mark with a collection of authentic Catalan espadrilles.
I found the perfect pair of linen metallic leather flat ones (with Chilvers signature green and orange striped tab) at M29 Lifestyle late last year.
This season's colors include a must-have azure blue leather metallic.
They're $140 with selected colors and sizes now 30% off. As Kate Long of M29 says, "They're so comfortable, they've replaced my tennis shoes."
