Of all the benefits to being a mom, finding creative ways to take care of myself is one of the best. Since having Zara, I always check myself to make sure I’m presentable. It’s a rare occasion for me to wear leggings out in public, unless I’m working out, but being ready and fully dressed just makes me feel much better about how my day will turn out even before it’s started. Now I like to think that I’m pretty practical and try not to wear anything too complicated or fussy, but one thing I love doing when I’m planning outfits is starting from the ground up and of course, that means shoes with the help of my friends at Shoe Carnival.
I know you may think I’m strange for picking out my shoes first, but I promise you there’s a perfectly, logical reason behind it. I do this because I like picking out something that will allow me to do what I need to get things done. Imagine me running errands in stilettos? Yes, I’ll look cute and people will be applauding me and thinking, wow how does she do it? But trust me, I will be dying on the inside and my feet will ache after a few hours. Not really my idea of a fun time.
The Y-Not Emma Shoe is so ideal for everyday wear and for going out and about. I love that I don’t have to worry that I’m too casual because it has the perfect sized heel. And the best thing about them is that I don’t have to sacrifice my own comfort for fashion’s sake! Whether I’m running errands or running around after Zara, it’s just always nice knowing I can feel and look good. Which is a pretty great confidence booster, if you ask me!
Two spring looks that I’m loving this season are matching, two-piece sets, which is actually romper but with a fun twist and of course a midi dress. They’re loose and flowy, and that means I don’t have to worry about feeling uncomfortable. I am definitely looking forward to wearing these out more with these sandals as the days get warmer.
