YOU NEED A PAIR OF LOAFERS IN YOUR CLOSET

Turtleneck || Jeans, similar || Faux Fur Stole || Velvet Loafers || Handbag || Sunglasses

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!

BEANIE – THE PERF COLD WEATHER ACCESSORY

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!
