JUNE MOOD


Things that have happened in June. 
Tying jute in pretty little bows.
Jumping, playing juveniles.
Summoned to the jury. 
Happy Father's Day, Joe. 
June 28, the day we met.

TAKING STOCK: LOAFERS & OXFORDS

Black Leather Shoes - Style Interplay
I popped over on instagram stories to talk about these babies, but figured it'd make a great post as well. SO— here's what we've got.

In 2014 I bought the patent leather mila loafers from Topshop. These babies have traveled across the country with me, have been my everyday go-tos to class back in college, and have made a few appearances post-college as well. I've worn and loved them so much that there is a hole straight through the ball of the foot on both shoes. Some of my favorite posts featuring these shoes are this everyday look, this outfit with my fav Rachel Comey jacket, and with the spring dress I made.

I've kept them because they are still a favorite, but haven't worn them in two years. I moved on to the Everlane Modern Loafer, which was my first purchases from Everlane. Loved these. The breaking in process was very similar to my Brixton boots, which I reviewed here. These are my every day, wear with anything loafers. At this point, I need to get the sole repaired, and see if there's anything we can do about that BS toe dimple happening at the tips of the toes. It happened shortly after I bought them and have been my least favorite thing about these shoes. If you guys have any tips on fixing or avoiding that—please let me know!

Now, the new new. I was shopping at Crossroads this weekend and ran across a pair of Everlane Modern Oxfords. (Far right in the image above.) Very excited for this find, especially because I got them for $37.50 and they retail for $168. Also, I am a size 8/8.5 shoe, in Everlane I size up to a 9, but in my experience with the Brixton boot and Modern loafer I think I should go up another half size. So, finding these at a size 9.5 was perfect. I can finally bid farewell to my Topshop oxfords and replace with these new babes.

Taking stock: loafers and oxfords

This has made me want to take stock of a bunch of other things in my closet. Sneakers, tees, jeans, button downs... Might be a good addition to make sure I'm getting rid of old or unworn things, as I invest in the new definitely-will-wear-every-day things.

MAY MOOD







For male and female
To get out of our minds
Outside in May, most 
Masking melancholic smiles
Mesmerized by the masterpiece
That lies in months ahead.
Possibly monumental 
Only to mark my age. 

Just let those words flow from your gut, mind and fingertips, ya know?
