I lost my beloved loafers to a day of muddy slush after a heavy snow last winter. I'd been on the lookout for a pair that filled the loafer-shaped hole in my heart and I think I finally found them (after trying on a dozen or more pair). I've been wearing these vintage loafers ever since they arrived in the mail.

These are my new skinny-but-not-too-skinny jeans. It's amazing how much better one feels when one's not suffocating in ill-fitting jeans!

I have never been a jeans person, but months of cold weather have encouraged me to wear them more often, just as much out of a desire for wardrobe diversity as a need to stay warm(ish). I have, however, been a big fan of artful graphic t-shirts ever since I discovered Threadless freshman year of college. The combination is casual and thoughtful, so I find myself gravitating toward this look on weekends and afternoons off.

The above looks incorporate glasses from ethically minded companies, Benji Frank and Warby Parker; fair trade and domestically produced tops and jeans, and Swedish Hasbeens boots.
