I've been seeing floral footwear and thinking about it this fall, as I pointed out here last month. Yesterday I bought a pair, and I'm debating whether to keep them. I really like them, but I'm questioning whether they will work with my wardrobe or my style.

Today I'm trying them out with Angie's fall/winter 2017 must-haves in mind: I was going for "maximal" with the plaid shirt and floral shoes, plus some new red lipstick I got recently. However, the floral on the shoes is SO subtle I think this outfit hardly looks maximal. Also I am wearing full-length jeans--rolled up in photo 1 and unrolled in photo 2.

I'm eager to hear what you all think about the loafers for me. Some of you may know I have a hard time wearing loafers. If these were oxfords, there would be no question about them for me, period. But when I get loafers, I often do not wear them as much as I think I'm going to. I could use some ideas of how to wear them, while still looking authentically me. This particular outfit feels a bit preppy for me. But then both "plaid" and "shirt" are two things I rarely wear, also. So maybe too many unusual-for-me yet very conventional pieces here??

The outfit: dark skinny jeans (Mother, the Looker high rise, in Coffee Tea or Me), blue plaid shirt (Treasure & Bond), long blue linen cardigan (Halogen), floral loafers (Ron White).

Thanks for looking! I look forward to your thoughts.
