I have to say, these thrifted loafers are right up there with my blue Shoemint heels, I just love them! They are by far the most comfortable of any of my flats and I like how they instantly add a special element to any outfit, they look cute with both skirts and jeans.
I talked about trying to find my own style yesterday and I think this outfit is very typical of what I like to wear. I really am such a jeans girl, I always roll my sleeves since I'm silly about having sleeves cover my forearms (it just bugs me) and I can never say no to a print top. The masculine element of the outfit with the loafers is something I love and part of how I've always dressed, thanks in part to a Katharine Hepburn obsession.
Katharine Hepburn has always been my biggest style icon, I always loved how bold she was and how she was able to pull of the masculine looks she was known for. I was actually named after her, as she was both my grandmother and my mother's favorite actress. I've always admired her bravery for wearing masculine clothing at a time when it really was quite scandalous and how she really stood apart from many of the other actress of her day. (Not to mention she had a rather fascinating life!)
Who you admire style wise? I know Audrey Hepburn and Alexa Chung are always at the tops of the list, is there any one unusual you like?
