As I have said before, Fall is my favorite fashion season. Its time for cashmere sweaters, boots and pumpkin spice lattès, which I realize are not technically a fashion piece, but really a great accessory to any Fall day. The one problem I have with the changing of the seasons (besides the weather beginning to get chilly- I hate the cold) is that you don’t get to see the other half of your wardrobe for an entire half year.
Well, this is where you’re wrong, my friend.
Wearing winter clothes in the summer is just plain wrong, especially if you live in a place where summers are sweltering. I push it about as far to the limit as possible, wearing sweaters and my ever-present faux fur vests on a cold day in the office or when the weather dips below 70 (I get cold VERY easily), but even I have to store those cozy clothes for at least two months a year.
Lucky for us, Fall is all about layyyyyerrringggg, virtually doubling your closet. Two of my favorite colors to take from Summer to Fall are red and pink. Pairing a red dress with black tights really makes the color pop, while pairing a pale pink with black tights and a blazer makes for the perfect outfit for a sunny, Fall, pumpkin picking kind of day.
Ballet flats? So five years ago. Get with the times, people. They pinch the back of your feet, you feel like you’re walking barefoot on the sidewalk, and let’s face it- some people were just NOT made out to look like ballet dancers (though for the record, if you do go that route, ballet flats from Lacoste are your best bet- they’re like walking on clouds, no joke).
Anyway, back to the
future present, and the present is the LOAFER. I know what you’re thinking, the loafer has been around since the dawn of time, but you ain’t never seen a loafer like this one. Introducing the loafer, Jeffrey Campbell style.
Can you say Sparkling and Chic??? These come in an array of colors- INCLUDING TURQUOISEEEE- but including both black and white for those of you who like to keep your feet a little more modest (I do not fall into that category). Since these loafers are Jeffrey Campbell, you can be sure they are comfortable, as are all of their shoes. Seriously, I have a pair with 5 inch heels and two inch platforms that I could run a race in, if I were the type to run races… or run.
So go out, and get your foot shine on. Your tootsies will apprecitate it.
