OH shoes. How I do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Shoes are the perfect accessory. They are for everyone. It doesn’t matter if I am in my fat pants or slimmer than ever, shoes always take my fashion mood to the next level.
This season, as a mom of two boys I need comfort. I am often baby-wearing my 6 month old so I need to be able to be surefooted and stable. But that doesn’t mean I can’t look cute! I jumped at the chance to try out some adorable leopard print flats from the new CL by Laundry line and I can’t wait to tell you all about them!
These flats are sturdy and built to last. The materials are soft yet stable and I love that they are satin lined. I also really like the rubber soles so I don’t slip.
At just $44.99 these shoes are a steal! Honestly, for the quality I feel that they are definitely reasonably priced. And this is coming from someone who more often than not shops at chain stores that may or may not also sell bananas.
Like I said, my life is very much based in function right now. I am ok with that, but I instantly get a boost when I wear leopard print. And it doesn’t matter that I am not yet at my pre-pregnancy weight. My shoes will always fit.
The fit of these shoes is great. They are very comfortable and fit well. I like the little bit of elastic on the sides because I have high arches and sometimes they not play well with flat shoes. My only complaint is the slight rubbing on the back of my heel that sometimes happens with new shoes. I have no doubt that this will go away once I break them in more.
