I love a classic espadrille, and I love Soludos' no-frills, stylish flat roped and canvas St. Tropez-style version of the staple shoe that works with everything. There are no bells or whistles here. Their espadrilles are really chic and very comfortable.
I like Kate Bosworth's style with shorts and Jen Garner with a cool cargo pant and pastel top. The cleaned up and casual shoes are feminine without being too cloddy. They can take you from the beach to a barbeque without having to worry if you have to change. And they're great to wear if you want to skip a flip flop.
