Time to come clean, I'm having a full on, fall love affair with the penny loafer.

But really more like a full time kind of thing because I just love em, year round, through the years. Started back in grade school with my trips to Bass, when I was so beyond excited to get a new pair, and plop a shiny penny in the front. Now, the basics remain the same, with colorful, shiny, or two tone finishes.

I'll be back soon with some of my favorite pairs available now....... 


Fringe, Druzy & a Little Boozy

Above: Zara dress, Frame Le Skinny jeans, Isabel Marant Crisi boots, Jerome Dreyfuss Carlos tote, Chic to Chic Druzy Geode Earrings




Who: As in, who am I listening to. Sleigh Bells, End of the Line.  Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss ride BMX bikes while still managing to look simultaneously moody and fashionable. I'd like to personally thank them for seeing me through that final mile. This is a great add to any running mix. 

What: As in, what went down this week/end. Ran my first half marathon. Still in recovery mode. Nursing my sore muscles by indulging in lots of fried food. I prepared for the race by hitting a wine tasting on Friday and Saturday, because that's what one does before a big race, right? 

I have been off earrings lately (mainly due to grab-happy toddler hands) but I was lucky to test drive these geode druzy beauties from local jeweler Chic to Chic. The diamonds have me rethinking my stance on the no-jewelry policy- hubs, take note. 

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about.
