Pinspired: A pair of penny loafers

A penny loafer saved is a penny loafer earned, right? (That’s true, according to Relient K.) That’s what my mom would say. These shoes are yet another thrift-store find that after I put them in the cart, my mom said, “I wore those when I was in college.” To quote yet another musical artist in this paragraph, what goes around comes back around … even in fashion. (That was a Justin Timberlake reference, in case you missed that.) Here’s the breakdown:

Jacket: Goodwill
Striped T: Old Navy via Saver’s
Denim: Elle via Kohl’s
Penny Loafers: Bass via Salvation Army
Rings: Forever 21/Charming Charlie/Rue21
Necklaces: Forever 21/Garage sale 

This pinspired Wednesday is based on this pin and this pin. The last time I wore this jacket, I paired it with navy-blue polka dots, and while the stripes aren’t a major deviation from the overall theme, I couldn’t help but want to emulate the navy stripes with a big pop of orange found in the two pins. They’re a classic but slightly sporty pairing. Also, did you notice the pennies in the penny loafers?
