Born Shoes are so comfortable and I love that I can find them at Zappos.com I’ve teamed up with Born Shoes and Zappos.com for this post #SeeComfortDifferently
A few nights ago Craig and I were reminiscing about moments in our lives when we were just completely naive. My finest example was that when I moved from New York to San Diego I worked in the fashion industry and had it in my head that I would turn our third bedroom into a huge closet of my own instead of sharing one with him.
Eight years of marriage, two kids and three changes to that room later (nursery, office, nursery) I can laugh at 22 year old me and declare her clueless. Priorities have shifted in both my closet and my life. Significantly. Happens to us all, doesn’t it?
However, my style hasn’t changed all that much over the years but it certainly has evolved. I’ll always pick gold over silver. I’m a sucker for anything in a blush tone. I still don’t own a little black dress, I prefer to live life in color. But motherhood has taught me a few things.
One thing I never thought becoming a parent would give me is a better body image. I look back at 22 year old me and think, well you had some amazing clothes but wow, you weren’t very comfortable in your skin. These days I accept and embrace my knobby knees and my super long monkey arms that are totally disproportionate to my body. Plus (yay!) they’re great for scooping up wiggly toddlers.
And with new found confidence I’m getting into the swing of things and refining my style. Finding the gems that let me feel like me and still allow me to be a mom of two, wife to one, a hard working woman and a girl who knows what she wants to wear.
Chasing a toddler who is wielding a broom as a weapon is hard enough. Chasing them in uncomfortable shoes is just plain miserable. Which is why I am in love with these Tera wedges from Born Shoes. I can actually (gasp) chase Blake in them without falling on my face. And walking? Walking in them is like stepping on little clouds. Not kidding.
They’re the perfect combination of comfort and style. Shoes that do double duty. And shouldn’t our shoes do just that? After all we’re usually running around doing triple or quadruple duty. Mom, career woman, nurse, chef and the list goes on and on.
Which is why I love that I can shop my favorite Born Shoes over on Zappos.com I ordered these beauties from Zappos.com late at night while on a business trip and found them waiting for me when I returned home. The selection is huge, the shipping fast and free (just the way I like it) and with a 365 day return policy even those of us with the most hectic schedules can find a way to take a few minutes for ourselves and find shoes we love that do what we need them to.
