Sock It To Me

May 26, 2017

I think watching Nancy Drew (the Emma Roberts one) too many times got me fixated on loafers. In the movie Nancy says, "Penny loafers are practical." I got thinking about penny loafers and the style of shoe that seems to be popping up from every brand. Although loafers are practical shoes there's more to them.They're clean and modest and a bit androgynous. Personally, they are a nice in between when I don't want to wear birkenstocks, classic Vans, or chelsea boots (which I tend to wear a bit too much).

When I was browsing Urban Outfitters, I found a beautiful black pair of loafers Bianca Leather Loafers originally $69. I was hoping to find this pair in D.C. but they didn't have them in store, fortunately they shipped them to me and the pair was only $20?!? 
Styling loafers with cool and cute socks is a must. One of my favorite places for a cute pair is M Taylor Gifts. M Taylor Gifts is owned by Marilyn Taylor, a K-State graduate. Yay for alum! Marilyn sells beautiful and unique accessories. She considers her store partially an art fair, partially a gift boutique, but overall stocks unique gifts. Although her store is traditionally online she has merchandise at Hawthorne 109 in the historic City Market in KC in collaboration with other local businesses along with her online store.
This pair is called Love You a Latte from M Taylor Gifts. I am usually not a brown sock with black shoes kind of lady but this pair is life changing! I love that this pair isn't knee high. They work throughout the fall-spring season! I like them best with a light to mid wash of jeans with a bit of a cuff.
These Frida socks are my second favorite pair from M Taylor Gifts. I think I'll wear this pair with a more minimalistic white blouse and jeans. I'm sure I'll find some crazy Man Repeller like looks and I'll be sure to update on  my Instagram Story!
M Taylor Gifts has so many fun and unique picks for gifts. One of my favorites is her SLIM Sonic Toothbrush in Stripe. Since I travel domestically fairly frequently the last thing I remember to bring is a toothbrush but how can I forget this SLIM Sonic Toothbrush - Stripe?! This toothbrush is for real, it has a triple A battery and an extra head! Its $15 but in my opinion its a steal. No one likes a long day of traveling to realize they forgot a toothbrush and have to rush out to a drug store. Plus this Toothbrush fits perfectly in any size make up bag!
What do you think of my take on funky socks and loafers? Hope everyone has a lovely Memorial Day Weekend! See you next week ^__^

I received these products complimentary from M Taylor Gifts for testing purposes. All opinions are always my own.
