If I had them in my possession, I probably would have worn my new loafers with this outfit, but I had to exhange them for a half-size up. I have been dying for a pair of heeled pennyloafers since last winter, when I declared loafers to be the new oxfords. TopShop had a great, overpriced pair, and Jeffrey Campbell came out with another fabulous, even more overpriced pair, but all of my waiting and bating of breath must have paid off, because when an affordable version popped up on Lulu*s this summer I couldn't wait to snatch them up. These are not them ;)

When I left the house this morning I thought that this outfit was going to be a example of why we should follow Chanel's advice and always remove the last accessory we put on... there is definitely a lot going on here, but I think it works. I did, however, almost put on my mink hat, which would have been too much :) I guess that's the lazy woman's Coco Chanel.
