I know, I know. It’s me in black again. Why don’t we just call this my all-black summer and be done with it, shall we?
I have been wearing head-to-toe black to work (well almost…the shoes tend to be the only break in color) for weeks now. Lately, it’s been so dang hot I am reluctant to go out and shoot photos, so morning, weekday—and workwear—shots it is. Maybe me wearing all this black is a rebellion against the searing temps of late. I have been know to rebel.
Anyway, to keep you from getting bored, I mixed in a new pair of loafers I snagged at Nordstrom Rack for a song. Don’t you love them? I fell in love with the burgundy-black color and rose gold hardware as soon as I spotted them. They are high, but very comfy…no blisters on first wear! For some reason, they also don’t make that clackety-clack noise when I walk on hard surfaces (Hubby can always hear me coming). So now I can do a sneak attack. Bonus.
This dress is one of my latest all-season LBDs. A simple shirtdress with not-so simple details, like wonderful, billowing 3/4-length sleeves. I seriously cannot wait to wear this dress in fall with my OTK Burberry boots. I think DVF is always a smart investment…the woman knows how to make a dress for the working class.
Oh, and here’s a shot of my first attempt at a classic, Dita-esque half-moon mani. More about that in another post.
And one more shot…a close-up I took of the loafers via Instagram. Can’t you just imagine them with black opaque tights and a 60s-style mini-dress this fall?! Y’all know chunky loafer pumps are coming back again, right? Makes me want to kick myself for disposing of a great black pair I had about 10 years ago. They would have been perfect now.
So, what do you think…are loafers on your fall shopping list?
