If you caught last week’s “Recent Finds” post, you might be sensing a trend. ;) But I’m obsessed with leopard footwear for the fall. It just goes with everything, and it gives otherwise “bleh” outfits that extra little punch. My go-to leopard block heels are from Talbots, and my go-to leopard loafers (shown above) are from Nordstrom.
You’ll see them in a lot of my upcoming outfits, but they deserve the spotlight for a minute, haha. I’ve actually owned the solid version of them for over a year now, and I can honestly say that they’re the comfiest loafers I’ve ever slipped into. And the leopard pair is just as comfortable. What makes them so magical is how flexible and soft the leather is. It provides for literally no break-in time, and there’s ZERO rubbing. The backs of new shoes are usually what get me, but these convert to mules if you step down on the backs… so I think that’s why they’re SO flexible. Definitely my #1 recommendation of the week! Oh, and in case you’re wondering about sizing, I ordered my usual size in flats (7.5), and they’re perfect, so order your usual size.
Before we get to this week’s Recent Finds, I should mention a few awesome sales going on right now:
L.L. Bean: Use code “FALL20” to take 20 percent off your order. I’d recommend this ragg sweater in “Oatmeal”; my favorite pair of Bean Boots (SO WARM!); this vest; this plaid shirt; this fuzzy pullover; and this one; and, okay, this one, haha!
J.Crew: You can take 30 percent off your order when you use code “GOSHOP.” I would definitely pick up this gray blazer, as I really can’t tell you how much wear I get out of my sweater blazers. (It also comes in navy with a striped cuff, which is so cute.) This is also a great time to pick up a classic camel or navy blazer, the tissue turtleneck (in navy here), and some great outerwear. Faves include my yellow toggle coat, my camel topcoat, and the “Lady Day Coat.” In my own cart is this plaid skirt and this houndstooth skirt. (I’m back on skirts now that I have some over-the-knee boots to go with ’em.)
J.Crew Factory: It’s J.Crew Factory’s fifth birthday, so you can take 50 percent off everything!
Okay, on to this week’s shopping/wish list:
