Sandgrens Environmentally Friendly Shoes

It can be hard to find shoes that are comfortable and cute at the same time. Some of us (this chick included) can fall into a rut of tossing anything on that fits and is easy to wear, even if it’s not all that flattering. Sneakers and flip flops are the footwear of motherhood, right? Sometimes, a girl’s gotta remember that….well, she’s a girl. And she was a woman before she was a mother (with a whole separate identity). Yes, your child(ren) come first, should, and always will. But what’s wrong with taking a few minutes (and dollars) for you now and again? As far as I know, none of us are martyrs destined for Sainthood, and it would do us good to be reminded of that now and again.


You deserve to look and feel pretty. Invest in yourself- a few items that make you feel good, and that you can wear with multiple items of clothes (so the guilt monster doesn’t come to eat you). For Spring and Summer, Sandgrens clogs and sandals are adorable, comfortable, and versatile. They are able to be dressed up for formal occasions like weddings and anniversary dinners out on the town, but easy to dress down for regular use with a pair of capri pants and a cute tank top. I have worn my Caspain sandals with my long formal IGIGI dress that I adore to formal dinners, events, and a wedding. I also took them with me on a recent cruise, and wore them dancing (they really are comfortable) and for every day touring. I wore them with a cute tank top and shorts, capris, and summer sun dresses. They really do go with everything, and they can be worn for long periods of time without hurting your feet, unlike most heels and wedges.

Spring has sprung, and many of us are taking the time to refresh our wardrobes (and having fun doing so).  It’s always fun to get new shoes as well- nothing to make me feel pretty like a cute pair of shoes.  That includes sneakers.  I have a pair that I wear to the gym, and a pair I use for daily use.  I love the new Reebok Skyscape for daily wear, they are very comfortable, lightweight, and even machine washable.  (Right?  How great is that.)

Like many of you, I do a lot of running around in my daily life.  I also do a lot of walking in my traveling, and these shoes are both cute to wear and comfortable for the whole day.  I don’t usually wear them with socks, and so far, no issues with blisters or rubbing on the heels or toes or anything like that.  I got them in the bright pink color, because I have a “thing” with pink sneakers.  It started out with a pair my son bought me for a present, now pretty much all my sneakers are pink.  Strange how things happen, ay? But I love the color, and that the laces are the same color.  I also love the black and pink ones- if my store had carried those, I might have gotten them.

On the set of the TV show “The Middle” in my LUV shoes- and catching a flight in just a few hours, which made the on and off easy. Not a perfect match to the shirt, but what can you do in a pinch? Haha.

No, that wasn’t a typo- if you Luv shoes, you will love these.  LUV Footwear makes adorable, cute and comfy slip resistant shoes for girls and women.  Lightweight and easy to kick on and off, they are a favorite to wear not only out and about, but also to pilates classes, mat classes, and even stand up paddleboarding since they help keep you from slipping.  Sounds like they would be great in the rainy season as well. They are super cute as well, with lots of colors to choose from.

3 disneyI love shoes- I think that might not be a secret.  My husband is certainly aware.  For me, the shoes make or break the outfit, and I adore my latest pair from Born Shoes.  They are not only super cute, but so comfortable (I swear) you can wear them all day long without getting sore feet or a blister.  I have worn them 4 times since getting them a few weeks ago (it’s still winter weather here, but I have been on a few trips to warm-weather locations!)  and and not one time did my feet hurt afterward, and every time I wore them I got compliments.

3 8 14 toys 010After having my son, I (much more quickly then I thought I would have) lost my style.  I went from having fun shopping and picking out my outfits, shoes, and accessories to just grabbing my track pants and t-shirts and going.  Dude- they are totally clean, what’s wrong with that?  Right?  Yeah, right.  Well, I don’t feel as good as I used to, for one.  This year, I am trying to get my body and my style back, and trying to look more like ME and less like…well, like a schlump.

3 8 14 toys 007I was asked to be a Kohl’s Fashion Ambassador-for the next 6 weeks, I will be bringing you weekly posts about Kohls, their new line of St. Berth’s inspired fashion from Peter Som, videos, and amazing giveaways for you as well.  We can learn to bring our sexy back together, and for less then you would think.  I am all about making one piece work in multiple ways, and making style easy.  I’m not an over-primper by any means, so this will be fun for me.
