These shoes are a great example of how sometimes you really need to see a shoe being worn to know how you feel about it. Or perhaps they’re just a great example of how good styling makes aaaaallll the difference.
When I first came upon them, you see, I was underwhelmed. They were nice, yes, but they were also loafers, and as loafers will forever be “school shoes” as far as I’m concerned, I just can’t bring myself to see them as objects of lust.
Then I saw this photo, in the Next Directory:
And suddenly all I want from life is to be this girl, walking her little dog on a crisp Autumn day in her tweed skirt, her big floppy hat, and her tan wedge loafers.
Well, I have the little dog, and I have the floppy hat. I just need the rest of the outfit now (Actually, I love that yellow sweater too), but as buying the lot would be a little extravagant, even for a confirmed shopaholic like myself, I will just have to content myself with imagining it instead.
