If had to choose one type of shoes to wear everyday, it would 100% be a pair of loafers or oxfords. Not only are they comfortable but they’re chic, classic, and timeless. I very much remember the start of my loafer love affair. It was my freshman year of college and Steve Madden was getting into women’s oxford shoes. I saw a pair of brown tassel loafers, basically an exact women’s replica of the men’s version. This is around the same time I was seeing menswear inspired outfits in Vogue and other magazines I tore photos from for inspiration. I had no idea this sense of style would still be one of my favorites almost a decade later.
On my trip to Seattle a few weeks ago, I stopped at the flagship Nordstrom I used to go to all the time in high school. You know when you walk into a store and don’t have to look around much before one thing instantly catches your eye? That’s what happened with these loafers! I’m generally not a burgundy person but I just fell in love with these especially the color. They have a wonderful 80s vintage feel and they look amazing with navy. I could wear them everyday and do!
