For the love of all things great and small. Seriously, I left the house in two different shoes today, and then had to work a shift at the grocery store this way. The lower-cut penny loafer was less comfortable than the one with the button trim. They are less broken-in. Lesson. Learned.

Minnie, on the other hand, manages […]
