I'm lost in loafers and never want to leave



I'm finding it hard to justify why, as another tropical storm threatened Tampa Bay, I entered DSW for wellies and came out with loafers.

Not just any loafers. Suede loafers, with tassels. These grandpa-style shoes have about as much in common with wellies as thong sandals (except those are usually waterproof, so I lose again).

But you know what? I regret it not. Low-cost loafers are all up in the stores again this year, and I think they're perfect for fall in Florida. It's about time I figured out how fun turning a male style on its head can be.

Plus, you know it's right if Suri is wearing it, right?


You know they're at Target ($19.99).


And at DSW.

In studded form, $49:


Nine West, $59:


Rocket Dog, $35:


Qupid, $29:


And, via Payless, we have these moccasin-style loafer cousins for $25.


I can't escape them. I don't want to escape them. I want to wear them to work and to the bar and in all of these variations.

Just like that, I have a new fashion obsession. Sorry, wellies.
