Mommy in Sneakers

I was chatting with someone recently about how I very rarely wear heels anymore, and that I should change the name of my blog because of that. But, they pointed out that it actually does fit, and makes it kind of funny that my blog is called “Mommy in Heels” when I in fact don’t wear heels.

It’s funny, because I used to teach in heels-like 3-4 inch heels every day. How crazy was I? Now if I wear heels I have to make sure there is somewhere to sit, or it is to an event where I know I won’t be standing for long periods of time-how old/lame does that make me sound?!!? HA!

Because heels don’t fit into my life as much as they used to, I am more than likely always searching for a cute pair of sneakers. I seem to wear those more frequently than anything else.

What I love about sneakers is how versatile they are becoming. Gone are the days of just wearing sneakers to work out- now there are so many different styles, which makes them easy to incorporate into any outfit. From a cute, casual dress, to jeans and a tee, they look great!

I had my eye on these shoes since I was in NYC a few weeks ago. I saw them in Anthro, and didn’t get them-but they were still on my mind!

When I got home I looked on their website and they weren’t there, so needless to say I was bummed. Fast forward a few days later and I was still thinking about them, so I took a chance and googled “tassel slip on sneakers” and I FOUND THEM, you guys. Amazing what Google can do for you!

Needless to say, the price was a little steep for me-I don’t typically spend that much on a pair of shoes, but I had been thinking about them non stop, they were neutral enough that I could wear them with a lot, and I had just earned some money from blogging so I figured why not?
