Stripes & Loafers
Loafers, no longer that sad shoe you see traipsing around your office cubicle. No, add a platform, patent leather, pointed toe and a tassel and you’ve got yourself a fresh perspective on the once saddened spectacle.
I also think it’s nice to own a jacket without a lapel. This jacket is unmatched in my humble, unbiased opinion. I haven’t seen anything like it in a while and it was a mid level splurge for me last year at Nordstrom. You’ve probably seen me wear it here before. Halogen has a similar one this season, the neckline and cut are very close.
You know as easy as is it would be to hate on the ripped knees trend, I’m going to back it. I was a little shy about the trend because growing up you’d always get some teacher or friend of your dad commenting “you paid for that?!” Enough to make one feel absurd and embarrassed. Today, I know it’s all about balance. In the winter when you’re covered almost head to toe you need something to balance out the amount of skin shown. Ripped knees do just the trick.
If your digging this necklace, I found it here in the Mirina collection.
