I fell in love with loafers by accident when browsing a J. Crew catalog (yes, catalog) about 10 years ago. I turned the page and there they were: a pair of bright red loafers. And I knew that I had to have them. There were way out of my budget, but I wasn't going to let that stop me. I started haunting the J. Crew website until they went on clearance, and snapped them up for a fraction of the original price. I was overjoyed when they arrived in the mail, and tried them on immediately. And then I promptly realized that I had no idea what I would ever wear them with.

I noted last year that I'm apparently the only style blogger around who doesn't love fall. There's nothing inherently wrong with the season itself; I've said before that fall is the only sane season in upstate New York. But as pleasant as it usually is, I can't forgive fall for its role as a harbinger of winter. So when it got chilly enough last week (in August, for chrissake) for me to break out sweaters, jackets and boots, I was not happy.

I'm a sucker for a good polo shirt, so this week's Making It Work is dedicated to just that. This is the third installment in a weekly series of posts about how to style clothes in a work-appropriate way.

So I am basically in denial about the fact that fall is almost here. But I can't ignore the signs any longer. The days are getting shorter; the leaves are starting to turn; and I saw my first pumpkin-related post on social media the other day. Yup, summer is coming to an end, boo. But, good news: that means big end-of-season sales!

Welcome to the next installment of Making It Work, a series of features about styling unusual or distinctive pieces in an office-appropriate way. Today's look features brightly colored trousers: a wardrobe item I was slow to embrace, but have come to rely on for work outfits.

When I started blogging again in earnest earlier this year, one of my goals was to build my network by connecting with other vintage lovers (and sellers) online. And around the same time, I started reaching out to other blogs to advertise with them.
