Loafing Around This Summer

by Kristie LeVangie

If you are like me, you can’t help but notice one of the hottest trends this summer is…Loafers.

Ballet flats are so 2000, and the Loafer is blazing its way onto the store shelves as well as the runway.

Whether it’s Erdem’s Resort 2014 runway show

    1. There are a lot of things I don’t think go well together that those college kids can pull off. I wouldn’t be surprised at all.
