Gone are the days when you had to check your “cute” card at the door the minute you became a mom. Today, there are lots of options that offer busy moms comfort without sacrificing style. Here are five must-have shoes that help you be a hot mama while still playing tag, riding bikes and cheering at soccer games.
Wearing a simple T-shirt and jeans? Throw on a pair of riding boots and a statement necklace, and you just took your outfit from drab to fab. Plus, because riding boots tend to have little to no heel, you can wear them all day without tiring out your tootsies.
Some stylish women run errands and chase babies around in heels. (If you are one, you have my undying admiration.) But that’s certainly not the majority. If you feel the need for a little height, but still need to be able to walk around in the grass, reach for the wedge instead. That way, you get the lift without getting your heels stuck in the mud.
I know this might sound funny, but I love peep-toe shoes because I only have to polish my first two toes. If you don’t have the time for a pedicure, but you want to give your feet a little air when you wear heels, this is the perfect option. Slap some polish on the first two little piggies, and you’re off to the office.
Ballet flats are one of the most versatile shoe styles out there. They’re easy to slip on and off, plus you can wear them all day. These pretty patent leather flats go with anything and help you dress up your look in a flash.
That brings me to my next, and last, tip. Have a few pairs of colorful shoes that add the perfect punctuation to an otherwise neutral color palette. These fuchsia sandals will be a staple all spring and summer.
