Mommy & me matching plus the case for buying quality kids’ shoes…
I officially have too many kids to all dress up cute every day (or even more than once a year!) but every now and again I put some effort into one or two of the little stinkers, and today we got to match! Marilyn’s chubby thighs looked so cute in this romper that I just couldn’t pass it up…and I won the nursing-mom lottery by finding a shirt dress that is actually long enough!
These rose gold moccs from Freshly Picked just kill me though. Rose gold is everywhere right now and I can’t get enough! The stripes on my sneaks are the same color and seriously the most comfortable shoes I own.

You guys know I’ve recently learned how important it is to invest in a few quality wardrobe pieces (like great fitting jeans and swimsuits) but kids’ shoes are just as important. It’s tempting to buy them cheap because they grow out of them so fast (and let’s be honest, my 11 year old just wears flip flops all year round) but for the little ones quality really does matter!
These moccasins fit both long, skinny feet and short chubby ones (I’ll give you one guess as to what type Mimi has) and they DO NOT come off! I got this pair a tad big for her to grow into and she can’t even pull them off herself. Which means no more lost shoes in the grocery store! I anticipate them lasting a lot longer than her other shoes and I’m in love. I also anticipate more embarrassing matching with this munchkin in the future. Maybe until she’s 12…
