My Summertime #Solestory

My Summertime #Solestory

*I was sent product to facilitate this review and post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.” I am going to preface my story with the fact that I will always choose comfort over style when it comes to shoes. ALWAYS. I just cannot stand to have uncomfortable shoes on. I can’t even function in them. Jimmy Choos, Manolo Blahniks? No thank you. Unless they’re very comfortable flats. It’s now post-Memorial Day weekend and if you haven’t … Read entire article »

Getting Back in Shape with Reebok Easy Tone Sneakers

Getting Back in Shape with Reebok Easy Tone Sneakers

Now that the swelling in my feet is gone and I’m up and moving, I’ve been trying out the Easy Tone sneakers Reebok sent me. Although I enjoyed wearing Reeboks as a kid, correct footwear wasn’t something I paid much attention to in my early 20s. But after three pregnancies, I need to treat my body a little better if I want it to last me a lifetime of being active and enjoying my family. The … Read entire article »

Ahnu: Step to Better Fitness and Stamp Out Breast Cancer

Ahnu: Step to Better Fitness and Stamp Out Breast Cancer

Although I do not exercise as much as I should, we’re an active family.  Almost every nice weekend finds us walking the local trails with our kids. We get moving for the health benefits and the fun learning opportunities we find out in nature. And all of our friends know that good footwear is a must when hanging out with my husband. A predisposition towards back pain, three pregnancies, weight gain, and maybe a fondness in … Read entire article »

Yes We Can…Wear Cute Flat Shoes

Yes We Can…Wear Cute Flat Shoes

Politics aside, every woman- whether Democrat or Republican- can celebrate Michelle Obama’s preference for hip yet comfortable flats. During my single days, I would suffer for fashion in high heels. But the birth of my son has turned me into a style pragmatist. If you want to keep up with your kids, flats are a must.   So I couldn’t be happier to see a high profile woman- especially one who has been celebrated by Vanity Fair … Read entire article »

Fall Shoe Shopping at Marshall’s

Fall Shoe Shopping at Marshall’s

Shopping is more fun when you can actually afford to buy things.  And discount stores like Marshalls have some great deals on brands I might otherwise not be able to afford.  This is especially great with children’s clothing and shoes, which they outgrow so quickly! Marshalls just announced their Shoe Megashop, which features a 5,000 square foot expanded footwear department in select Marshalls stores. So, I headed over to my local Marshalls to browse for some fall … Read entire article »

Hip and Comfortable Shoes for Mom

Hip and Comfortable Shoes for Mom

When we first got married, my husband was very confused about why I owned so many pairs of black shoes. I explained to him that each of the shoes fell in a different position on the style-to-comfort continuum. The best-looking were also the least comfortable, but I needed them for parties. The low-heeled practical shoes fit well and were essential for running around the convention center floor at trade shoes and conferences. He was (and still is) baffled. “Why don’t … Read entire article »

Mary Jane Crocs: Do or Don’t?

Crocs: Alice Mary Jane Call me out of touch, but I must admit I haven’t been digging the whole Crocs fad. Several years ago when Crocs first appeared on the scene, my fashionista friend proudly showed off her “traffic cone orange” pair. Although I have to admit that she is generally an early adopter of the hippest trends, I must say it was with great satisfaction that this particular shoe seemed to be a … Read entire article »
