I used to the be the type of girl who wore heels and stilettos. No more. My footwear choices these days usually consist of flats, flats, and more flats. (Essentially whatever can get me from point A to B in comfort, while still looking stylish).
I’ve been a fan of TOMS for a while now. Not only are they cute, these shoes are comfortable to boot. An added bonus is the way a purchase of TOMS makes you feel. Founder Blake Mycoskie created his company with the intention of giving to children in developing countries. To date, over one million children around the world have received shoes because of TOMS. This is the One for One promise; with every pair of shoes purchased, a pair is given to a child in need.
TOMS Eyewear was launched this summer, also with the One for One promise. For each pair of sunglasses purchased through this line, someone in need will receive medical treatment, sight saving surgery, or prescription glasses. What better way to outfit your face than by helping someone in need.
A few weeks ago Peanut and I were invited to a “Style Your Sole” event hosted by Momma’s Gone City. With a bevy of amazing bloggers, we were given the opportunity to decorate our own pair of TOMS. Peanut loved jazzing up her shoes and I was thrilled to support the One for One mission.
We’re planning on investing on a few more pairs of TOMS for the fall season. You can check out all the new styles at toms.com.
