I've never thought I would opt for a Gucci loafers dupe, but when I saw the Adeline slide from Vionic's collection, I knew I had to have them.
As a huge fan of the comfort brand (and the only shoe brand that will always support my high arches!), I couldn't help but be drawn to the festive poppy red color of these amazing shoes.
And I knew opting for a pair of slides from Vionic would be a perfect fit. Quite literally!
Loafer slides are one of the different types of loafers that offer a more laid-back spin to the preppy shoe.

I've had slides in the past but none of them were very comfortable & they hurt the sole of my heel where the shoe ends at the back.
Let's just say it's been over a decade since I ever wore a pair of outdoor slides! But I decided to slip into the slide game once more & give this shoe type a chance.
As Vionic shoes generally fit wide, I opted for a 7.5 rather than my usual size 8. And they fit my foot (well, both feet, actually!) like a glove.
The molded insole technology is in full swing in this red slide style & the insides of the shoes are as soft & cosy as are the creamy leather uppers.
I call these my outdoor slippers & what better way to style them, than with a long soft cardigan & stretchy jeans? Well, with the cold days we've been having in Toronto, maybe a pompom toque & parka wouldn't hurt!
The clothing I'm wearing is from last year, but I've linked to similar items in the above widget. My fave high-low fray hem jeans in store right now are from Frame Denim, over at Nordstrom.
I'm in love with layering all of my dainty geometric necklaces from Prysm, a jewelry company based out of Montreal. The two pendants I'm wearing are my favorites at the moment. As are the circle earrings.
My go-to larger cross-body purse from Brave Leather (the Virtue handbag) looks as perfect as when I received it last Spring! I love how a sturdy purse contrasts so well, layered onto softer pieces.
And I have to say that the festive Starbucks cups floating around this time of year are are a pretty fun accessory, too 😉
