I think one of my favorite current trends is that mules and loafers are extremely popular and coveted.
I for one have always loved the clean look of a pair of loafers but always felt it was too 'mature' of a style for me. This is likely because I appreciated my parents' tendency towards this look so I guess I always thought it was more for them, not for me. Whelp! In comes my favorite rendition of this look: the mule.
I noticed this trend start to pop up maybe two or so years ago when peep-toed, heeled mules started being sold everywhere! Now this trend has evolved to my newest obsession: the loafer-style mule.
I would argue that there is no more classic of a shoe then the Gucci Loafer. Well that is, besides, this Gucci Mule. I am absolutely obsessed and wish I could get my hands on a pair immediately. Unfortunately my budget doesn't quite allow a $700 pair of shoes, so I had to find an alternative and fortunately... there are a million!
So I've rounded up my favorites so you, too, can get the Gucci style at my Haley price:
