Backless Loafers are Trending

What do you think?  Are you liking the fur lined backless loafer that is HUGE right now? I can’t seem to wrap my head around spending $995 for something I would wear as a slipper, but if you check out these street style photographs you will see they are being worn just about everywhere. Maybe it is the fur plus that they are backless that is throwing me off? Turns out it is a big trend without the fur and I wanted to see if any caught my fancy.  I found 14 pairs of backless loafers that are not as expensive (some are very easy on the wallet) and got me to thinking I might be able to embrace this trend.  What about you?  Will you be wearing backless loafers?

15 Pairs of Loafers for Everyday Wear

I am going to try to wear my new loafers (on sale!) as much as I can before the dead of Winter settles in and I am in boots for the long haul. We had such a long Indian Summer in the Northeast that I am not ready and I don’t think I have ever been ready for the bitter, freezing temps.  I woke up to snow covering every surface this morning and did end up wearing boots to work, but I have my loafers at the ready to change into when I got home.  So many great options and Nordstrom is having a HUGE sale so many of them are on sale.. Happy Dance! I hope you find some great deals!
