Seed Heritage Espadrilles

It's fair to say that when I set my heart on owning a certain item of clothing, it becomes my mission to find and own it. And if some well-meaning shop assistant foolishly utters the words 'sold out in your size' it only serves to add fuel to the flame. From that point on I will almost certainly be ringing every store (or getting said shop assistant to), scouring the internet and doing everything I can to find whatever it is I simply cannot live without.

Occasionally the search can end in disappointment when after all the hype, whatever it is I'm after fails to live up to the expectations I have set so high. Not so recently however when my search for some espadrilles I saw on Instagram eventually ended in success.

I've always been a fan of espadrilles; they are comfy and perfect trailing-around-local-markets wear on a summer holiday. Most of my purchases have cost me around the 10 euro mark from said markets but once I saw these beauties from Seed Heritage, the budget went out the window.

The leather is buttery soft and I can already see myself living in them this summer. Each pair is hand made and have a leather sole so at $99 I actually don't think the price is too bad because theoretically they should last pretty well.

There is also a leopard print pair on offer which I was highly tempted by but in the end I decided I've seen better alternatives (like these from Kurt Geiger) so managed to control my urges (*pats self on back*).

While on my quest I came across another brand of espadrilles called Mint & Rose which I wanted to mention as I think they are fab. If I could find a local stockist (I've tried!) to try them on I might have even chosen them over the Seed ones. With a distinctly Chanel look about them, they look super chic and super comfy.

  1. Couldn't agree more! This is literally the story of my life!!! ... Actually went through the same hunt today to nab a pair myself, and so glad I found them in my size - I really had my heart set on them, and wouldn't rest until I had them in my hands!

    Lovely outfit and gorgeous post!

    Enjoy your Sunday!
