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 had been that girl complaining that the temps weren’t feeling Fall enough around here–until this past weekend that is. It took a turn for the COLD and I dealt with it by pulling out all my favorite beanies.
I wore this look to grab coffee and then go to lunch with Ethan yesterday after we got finished with a shoot. I had forgotten how cozy and warm a beanie can be! Totally makes a difference when in the chill when it’s windy outside. If you don’t have a couple in your closet then you should change that asap! I can be pretty picky. I don’t like slouchy ones and I always make sure they have a pom pom. I get a lot of wear out of this nude one and I also keep a basic black one in heavy rotation. && I have my eye on this one. Might have to order it next!
Today is my Mom’s birthday! HBD, Pam! 🙂 We are heading home to celebrate with her tomorrow night and then we leave for CA on Thursday so it’s going to be a busy week. I can’t wait! Hope you all have a good one. ps, I have a caaaa-ute pair of shoes to share with you all on Wednesday so be on the lookout!
When in doubt…just throw on your favorite black pieces! That’s my go-to! This sweater is the best. I love the texture of it and the rolled up sleeve that is slightly oversized but not extreme. And the turtleneck is perfect becuase it not tight or constricting. [wearing a small]
I threw this on this morning so Ethan and I could come grab coffee before shooting and when I was putting this post up for you all I noticed that the exact pom pom key chain I have on my purse is on sale today for only $5! Sooooo, that prompted me to give the rest of the Express site a little run through and I ended up buying the following things:
I couldn’t help but snag the same pom pom in grey and tan and I also got this extra large black one to pair with the one I already have. They would make a great stocking stuffer or gift for a girlfriend!
I also love this chunky knit so I ordered it in beige. [I sized up two and went with a medium, hoping it’s oversized that way]
It’s no secret that I love a beanie this season… so I couldn’t resist this one with a tiny pop of color!
&& I was just kicking myself this weekend for not having a black a-line mini skirt. I was even searching the internet for exactly that yesterday so I am thrilled to find this one today! I always end up wanting a black skirt to pair with tops/sweaters and over-the-knee boots this time of year and I think an a-line cut is much more flattering than one that fits tighter at the bottom and sticks to your thighs. [I ordered a size 0 in this]
Let me know if you all end up getting some goodies from this sale too! I found SO many things I wanted. I had to delete a lot from my cart before tapping on the ‘place my order’ button. Ha!
