Outfit of the Day | Tweed, Plaid, Stripes & Grandpa Loafers

Sweater: Target, old {similar} | Vest: Target | Jeans: American Eagle | Flats: DV Dolce Vita 'Lunna' {same in a fun spotty print} | Scarf: via Kohl's, old {almost exact} | Necklace: F21, old {super similar for cheap} | Watch: Fossil

ahhhh... The Vest. I adore this thing. I only have one other vest (a situation which should be remedied immediately if not sooner, obviously, probably with either this or this), a white pleather number from Forever, that I thought at the time would go with everything but in reality somehow goes with nothing. Clothes are weird.

My grandpa loafers are sort of the same thing. I don't think I've worn them on the blog since this outfit, because I feel like there's a pretty specific vibe they give off, but instead of giving up on them like I do my poor pleather vest, I think of them as playing hard to get. They're like the unsluttiest shoes in my closet, both because no self-respecting whoring jezebel would be seen in loafers and because they don't go with just anything.

aaaand that's probably enough shoe/slut shaming for your Monday morning.

My Thrifty Chic


  1. I LOVE those shoes! I don't think they're grandpa-y at all, and imagine them going well with an all black outfit and just gold and fuchsia (that's not the right color.. raspberry? Squished strawberry?) accents.

  2. I haven't been over to your blog in such a long time that I was shocked to find you red-headed! OMG! It looks so great on you! Super cute outfit, too. I love the best/top/scarf combo. So cozy for fall.

  3. I love your shoes! Though my grandpa loafers could probably beat up your grandpa loafers, cuz mine got TASSELS!

  4. I'm pretty sure the vest goes with EVERYTHING. The loafers would go with SO much too! Great weekend outfit, and you are SO good with the selfies.


  5. Go Target - this vest is so cute! You'll be able to wear it with everything! =)

    I hope you have a great week!


  6. I've been drooling over that same twill vest from ON but it is sold out everywhere. And the only other options I can find might as well cost a billion dollars because they are out of my poor budget. On the bright side, ON is currently carrying flats very similar to those, just not loafer style. Check 'em out!

  7. I ADORE that hair color on YOU!! You look fab!!
