Okay, FINE.  So the truth is that I just bought a pair of loafers — these Everlane ones; I hope they fit! The reviews indicate that they run small — and thus I have loafers on the brain. As I was shopping for them, I thought back to my years in a uniform in high school, and how much I enjoyed my loafers (it was the classic Bass ones back in the day); I wore them until the soles literally came off. The return of the loafer/oxford to the forefront is a huge relief to me — there are SO many Cute Loafer Options now, which means that I have so many more opportunities to wear cute flat shoes around town. (There is something comforting about returning to a uniform, although I definitely swap jeans for the skirt.)

Check out these very cute loafers. Velvet loafers! Plaid loafers! Leopard loafers! Shiny loafers! Loafers with the Queen’s Guard on them! The more I type the word “loafer,” the less it means to me!

I am not totally sure how I’m going to resist the red Boden ones.

FYI: GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you get yourself something new. I can assure you that all loafers were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking coffee and watching Law & Order reruns.
