A beautiful afternoon spent roaming Wall Street and various other places near by with Luke in New York City. We were tempted to catch the ferry around The Statue of Liberty but after finding some cute lavender bushes lining the ferry docks we decided to relax and take in the view from a far instead. It was the perfect temperature for warm winter coats and Luke's bear hugs to keep me nice and cosy on the waterfront. I couldn't have been more content at that very moment. Here's a better view of my black patent loafers too. Really simple and so easy to throw on with basically anything. Shortly after purchasing these I discovered there's actually an endless supply of patent loafers in NYC and was torn between a penny loafer style I spotted at J.Crew. The style was more structured but had an additional $180 price tag, so I was happy to stay with my Steve Madden's. I've always felt really young and little when I wear ballet flats (is this just me?) so I just love how easily these loafers have replaced them and instantly added a preppy and polished feel to my outfits. Not that they need to get any more preppy but you know what I mean. I'd never say no to more man style dressing. Next stop, Brooklyn Bridge and their unbelievable flea markets!

  3. Pretty cute there miss nicole!!
    Loving the loafers, so jealous. I also feel the same way about 'ballet' flats. Not really a huge fan, I'm a boots girl.

  26. I have a pair of tan leather loafers that I wear with pretty much everything. I think I'll have to invest in a patent pair too (though summer is fast approaching). Love these colour blocked outfits you've been wearing lately. Oh, and I like Luke's hat!

  46. I agree with you about the ballet flats. I never could get into them so I always just toughed it out in heels or wore runners instead, so needless to say I am excited about loafers being abundant. Yours look great <3

  62. Those patent loafers are sweet. I had a cheap pair of loafers with tassels on them but one of the tassels fell off so I think I'm going to throw them out and invest on a nicer pair.

  64. i can't imagine you'd ever be willing to do this, but it would be so fantastically wonderful if you made a little makeup tutorial. no even a video maybe just steps of your normal 'do'. you look gorgeous in every picture and i just can't seem to encapsulate the simply beautiful face that you can... :)
    just a suggestion. either way you look amazing, and i want those loafers.

  68. Ah, yes, more pretty color blocking! Black, navy, and gray really are my go-to shades. Whenever I try to incorporate an actual color into my wardrobe, I just get stuck and then think, "Now where is Nicole when I need her?" :]
