Don’t get me wrong, I live for summer, but when the weather starts to change and I feel that chill in the air, I start looking forward to fall. The pumpkin spice lattes, colorful leaves, family holidays and especially the fall fashion. I love the thick September issues of InStyle and Lucky and I start planning my fall shopping… this year one of my must haves is the loafer.
My Mom has worn Stubbs and Wooten loafers for as long as I can remember, and I love their preppy Palm Beach esthetic. I can’t really justify the $400 price tag, so I love that stores like the Gap and Nine West are doing an affordable interpretations (you can also pick up Stubbs and Wooten for JCrew if you like). I picked up the polka dot Gap loafers the other day and the studded Steve Maddens will be my next purchase. This style is really versatile, depending on the fabric you choose, loafers can go with a a great skirt and blouse for work, an LBD for evening and skinny jeans and a sweater for the weekend. Plus I love that they are practical enough to make running errands and being on your feet all day both achievable and stylish! ”If you’re priority is comfort and you’re on your feet all day, make sure you take a look at these comfortable shoes from Simply Feet.
