WALK IT: We wrote about a rather glam pair of espadrilles just a few days back, but since we're on a roll with a tribute to the simpler times, we'd like to present you with the very chic French Soule flat by Mauleon from Madewell. Curated from the Basque Country in France, where the espadrille is said to have originated from, the French Soule line is hardly a Madewell exclusive. They're practically a staple throughout the country but Madewell loved them so much that they had to put them in-store alongside their fellow French footwear favorite, Bensimmon. We like the Rainbow striped version, but Madewell stocks them in chambray and traditional sailor stripes for the tame at heart.
