The Daily Kick: Loafing About

This week we’re going to be featuring some loafers on the Daily Kick.  Remember that at time of writing at least one color of each style will be available in a size 10.

I love loafers. Don’t own any but I love them and when sported in snazzy colors they lend a great kick to a casual outfit. YOOX (yo-ox) has a number of fab ones on crazy sale, but –and this is just between us– I especially love a good white loafer.

They’re just so old school Milan and although she gets trotted out entirely too frequently for my liking, there’s also something very Princess Grace about it too.

It reminds me of when she hurt her arm and just used an Hermes scarf as a sling. Was it sexy? No. Was it particularly avant guard? Not really. It was simply chic and thoughtless and beautiful but understated.

These are under $70icon, made in Italy, available in white (sizes limited but available in a 10 at time of writing), a tremendous sky blue, navy and black. Ciao!

    You had me at “sky blue.”

    Loafers are to me not unlike Plumcake’s Calvinist tale. I love them–how cute are these? too cute for words–but can’t wear them due to high arches. One of many heartbreaks in a life of pain.
