My Favorite Things: Loafer Love

Nothing says preppy, classic, and timeless like a good pair of loafers.  Recently I have really become a huge fan of the loafer and have found that a few pairs have suddenly appeared in my closet and on my feet.  They're classier than a flipflop and way more comfortable and supportive than a ballet flat.  They also always remind me of these photos of my parents back in their early 1980's preppy Greek life days.  All that's missing are some argyle sweater vests, Lacoste polos, and knee socks.  

I recently treated myself to a fabulous pair of gold Tory Burch driving moccasins.  Not a huge splurge as I did have a giftcard.  Luckily.  I wore them so much that I was afraid I was going to wear them out, so I went on a hunt for some better everyday loafers and found not one, but two pairs of Sperry Topsiders for a great price at Nordstrom Rack.  Nothing makes me happier than a shopping trip like that!  And thank goodness I have younger sisters who have informed me that Topsiders are now cool.  Until recently I have always associated them with the little boys I went to Catholic elementary school with and how none of them ever tied the laces-- they just made those little barrel knots on each side and slipped them on and off.  Does anyone else remember this?

As an homage to the ever preppy loafer, I did some digging on Polyvore and created my loafer/moccasin wishlist.  See below, do some online shopping, and enjoy!
