Mom Shoes

First let me say, sorry. It was brought to my attention via Facebook message from a reader that said she couldn't read my blog posts recently because I was using black font on a black background. When I read it on my computer it was grey font, but I went ahead and just changed backgrounds for the time being. So hopefully now, everyone can read it!

So Mom shoes. You know, kinda like the mom haircut, or mom jeans. Being a mom, comfort is numero uno. Unfortunately, I have somewhat of a shoe addiction, but come on ladies, who doesn't? My addiction usually is for heals. Why? I have no idea, since I don't really wear heals. They just appeal to me. Anyway, heals are not comfortable, or safe to wear while toting around a tot, I have fallen TWICE carrying Dylan wearing them. So I have entered the world of flats. You see, I tried to not buy flats for a long time. I felt like they would make me look shorter than my 5'2 self. But recently, I have been on a search for the perfect flats. I mean come on, this year, I actually bought flat BOOTS. Someone is stepping up in the style department.

For my birthday last year, Adam bought me Tory Burch Reva flats. I had heard these are THE most comfy flat there is. Well, maybe it's because I am like an in between size, not a 6.5 but the 7 flips off my heal, but these are not that comfy. Comfy, yes, but walking on clouds? I don't think so. I also have a pair of Cole Haan Nike air flats, that I purchased shortly after Dylan was born. I should have waited. Apparently my feet were fat, seeing as now those are too big. I think a slip stop will help. Note to self.

Along with my search for a comfy flat, I also wanted them to be brown. The above mentioned shoes are black, and a cranberry color. So I thought brown or grey would be good. Do you KNOW how hard it is to locate brown flats? Impossible! I looked at Macys, Nordstroms, Dillards, and several DSW's. Until yesterday, I was at a loss. DSW finally helped me out by bringing in some bronze shoes. Ok, so not brown but close. They are simple bronze shoes. And guess what? LIKE WALKING ON CLOUDS! They are so comfy! I love the brand Me Too. It's my new favorite! Now, I have heard TOM's are great, so of course, I put them on my Christmas list, and hope that I will be able to try those out!

Do you have any suggestions for flats I should try!?

I have been on the hunt for brown flats or wedges (that don't have that fake wood look) for like 3 years & they are almost impossible to find!! The bronze ones are cute!

Ok- I know I've already given you my plug for TOMS but you have to get some! I don't wear tennis shoes (unless I'm at the gym) and these are an awesome alternative! So comfy!

I'd love to get together but we live in Keller...Where are you?
