The other day I stood in front of my closet, just starring for a good 15 minutes. You know the game – the “I have nothing to wear” when really you have a lot of options, but you’re just being really hard on yourself about the way things look on your body. Yep, that was the one I was playing. I tried on shirt, after shirt, hating everyone, the way it hit me, the way it looked, my arms in it, whatever. I had a reason for every single one. It wasn’t “comfy cute” enough – because you know, Mom life. I need something friggin’ cute but I also need functional.
After playing this game for awhile, Blake walked in and said “Mama do I look pretty?!”, with the biggest grin on her face. She had picked out a black dress, her cute little shoes and followed her question with another, asking me if I would do a bun in her hair. I melted. Those five little words and it was like she knew it was exactly what I needed to hear. So I picked out my current favorite dress, grabbed my new Dansko shoes and put a little bun with a bow in Blake’s hair.
It was just what I needed. I feel like some days I need to just get out of my comfort zone, put on my fun heels, a pretty dress and have fun! So that’s exactly what I did and it was perfect. We danced around, ran our errands and did our thing and I didn’t worry about the rest. I felt good, I felt confident and my sweet girl couldn’t stop talking about how we both had ‘twirly’ dresses on. These are the moments I live for.
Also these shoes – y’all need these shoes, so go ahead and make that happen as well. I got them from Zappos. They’re Danskos and seriously so cute and so comfy – like heels, THAT ARE COMFY. There are a few reasons I love shopping at Zappos and they are, their fast shipping, free shipping, 365 day return policy and tons of style options. Seriously their customer service is incredible and they carry all the brands that I love already.
Now these Dansko Octavias are seriously gold, I hit the jackpot. Plus I just love that they inspire me to just kind of step out of my comfort zone and just be myself and have fun. Plus they literally make shoes that are simply, good for your feet and meant to be worn all day which means – even their heels (like these) are FRIGGIN’ COMFY. You can shop them, here.
