Sometimes I struggle with shoes to wear to work. It’s hard to find a pair that is comfortable enough for all day wear and still on point style-wise. I have a couple pairs of trusty ballet flats but as it gets cooler I find myself wanting something that covers up my foot a bit more for warmth and also to hide my pale feet a bit (since I usually only tan for the weekends). So this year I set out to find a pair of loafers.
Last week I was browsing the Nordstrom site and came across these Sam Edelman loafers. SOLD. My favorite flats are Sam Edelman and they have held up great so I figured these would be a good choice. And when I saw that they came in black velvet with silver hardware I almost couldn’t get them in my cart fast enough. I think that combo makes them trendy, yet is still so classic. I think these run true to size/maybe a tad big. If you are in between sizes I would definitely go down. [wearing a 7.5]
I plan to wear mine with black skinny pants to the office and with jeans in the evenings and on the weekends. I have them on here with a pink stole (How fun?!), black turtleneck (Great basic! Wearing a small) and levi’s. and I cant wait to wear them with my stripe cashmere sweater soon too. I love how they will elevate a simple outfit.
If you are in the market for some loafers and want to browse a few more options then scroll through these picks:
Alrighty, and now it’s on to packing. We leave on Thursday for our trip to San Diego and LA and while I cannot wait, I am also having a hard time squeezing everything in this week to get prepped. So wish me luck. HAPPY HUMP DAY!
I think it’s always good idea to buy a couple of fun tops each Summer. Ones that you can wear with jeans and heels on a night out or with jean shorts and flip flops for a day time lunch. This little red number certainly fits that bill! I have worn it too many times to count in the past few weeks. I love that it’s a bold color, is one shoulder, and has the cutest ruffle detailing.

&& I can’t even begin to tell you all how much I am loving these heels! A classic style–but this color helps them make a statement. They also come in neutral options and would be a great shoe to have for weddings and cocktail events. [runs true to size]
I wore this outfit when we went out for mexican and margs with friends in NYC. We sat outside at the Cascabel Taqueria on the Upper East Side and had the best night. Try it out if you are looking for a casual place! We snapped these photos on the balcony of our room before we headed out. We stayed at The Viceroy Central Park for this trip and I would recommend it! The location was great–close to several different areas of the city, the decor was chic–white black and brushed gold and the rooftop bar is a dream–nice view of the park and a great atmosphere.
Hope you all had a great weekend! Ours flew by, per usual but it was a good one none the less!
I love a good warm day spent in the sun, but I also LOVE a good summer night. After the temperature drops a little and you can sit around in a lightweight sweater and sip wine…that’s the best!
This is the perfect outfit for that! You all HAVE to grab this sweater. I wore it last week in the evening–we took a pizza and some wine down for a boat ride to celebrate my dad’s birthday–and I have worn it twice already to work since. So handy! I layered this casual tank under during the day and this cami under it at night. [wearing a small & it gives an oversized and slouchy fit]
Oh, and I definitely have to mention these pearl sandals. They’re new and I am in love. I was obsessed with the Chanel pearl slides when I saw them but I knew they were out of my price range, so I was about to buy these. But, then I found the ones that I am wearing here and decided to give them a try first. Honestly, I expected the quality to be poor but it’s surprisingly great! I’ve already worn them a bunch and get compliments on them every time. [Be sure to size up one]
With this week being split up by the 4th, we’re trying to squeeze a few things around the house before the weekend hits again. So it’s laundry and organizing time around here! Fun right, haha? I am switching up my closet/office room a bit so I actually am excited about that. Stay tuned because I will share the finished results… & in the meantime, you can see the closet video tour we did a while back here. It’s going to change quite a bit and I can’t wait!
