Threads: Penny for Your Thoughts

Yep! This is officially my 6th post within a year about shoes. Some would say it is an unhealthy obsession; I like to call it an appreciation. Today’s inspiration comes from that classic staple that has stood the test of time, and a compliment in both men and women’s fashion, the penny loafer. Fun Fact! Did you know that the shoe was first designed after Norwegian dairy farmers? I mean who know!? Since its inception in 1932 the shoe has undergone some minor modifications with variances in the form of color, material, and patterns. I think the thing I love most is its ability to translate any sort of personal style whether it be preppy, hip-ster, or nostalgic. Just cuff those jeans and go! Want to read more on the history of penny loafers? Check it out here.
