Let's briefly discuss shoes. Given my affinity for footwear, you'd think I'd have dipped my toes (so to speak) into the mule trend much sooner, right? Well it took a while, but I'm finally warming up to the effortless vibe of slip-on shoes with these new backless loafers. They tick off two trend boxes at once; not only are they mules, but they're also menswear-inspired. The tailored construction lends them a polished and professional feel, and they work well for the warm fall season that we have here in California. Plus, they are so comfortable and easy to walk in that I hardly miss my Birkenstock Arizona sandals.
