Mix List: My Pointed Toe Loafer Picks for Fall

If you guys buy one shoe for fall, make it the pointed toe loafer.  By now, we all have multiple pairs of boots and booties in our closet, and heels galore– the freshest way to update your looks this fall is a pair of these guys.  They will ground any look with a more masculine edge– for me, traditional flats feel too expected.  Pointed toe loafers are literally my dream shoe for so many reasons– tomboyish appeal, a sense of irony, sharpness and edge, annddddd comfort! As a teacher, I’m always on the run (sometimes literally lol), so these are my fave way to stay on trend footwear wise, while giving my feet a break during the week from heels!  Some of my fave ways to wear them:
With skinnies, cuffed or shortened to show off some ankle– this is vital…there needs to be a few inches of ankle if you wear pants or jeans with these guys…otherwise they appear more dad-ish than fashion-y.
With dresses, to offset the femininity.
With a mini skirt, leather or suede/denim button up, with a sweater or button up– kinda 70s collegiate vibes…
With overalls, duh.
Below, find some of my favorite pointed toe loafer options out there now, in varying price ranges:

New to the Mix: Transitional Sweatshirt Dress

Hey guys! Happy Spring Break! One of the perks of being a teacher is that you still get a “Spring Break” — sorry corporate/office/cubicle-confined friends!
Just a quick post today– I found this awesome henley-style sweater dress at Nordstrom’s Topshop section this week, and wanted to share it with you guys as the PERFECT transitional basic that can actually be worn year-round…in the winter with tights and booties, in the fall with a leather jacket and now, in the cooler part of spring, as I have it styled here– with my go-to Converse and my fave denim jacket.  I wore this look today for running around NYC today…al fresco salad in the park, shopping at Zara and H&M (scored the black overalls of my dreams!!! post to come soon!), and happy hour drinks with Tim.  Shop my EXACT look below (except for the Loeffler Randall bag– that was sold out, so I linked to a very similar option, on sale!)
