For a long time this, right here, was my favorite moment of the day. Standing in the parking garage at my job when I’d kick off my heels and throw on the pair of flip flops in my car for the drive home. I mean, SWEET JESUS, I know you know this feeling. Garrett is always giving me a hard time about wearing uncomfortable shoes, and I always say back, “Baby it hurts to be beautiful.” But you guys, WHAT IF IT DIDN’T? I’m sort of at this crossroads in my style life. I love looking and feeling cute and on-trend and like I am taking care of myself, but I am also 100% OVER walking around in shoes that bring me more excitement when I take them off, you know? When I got an email from BlogHer at the end of a long work day asking if I was interested in a campaign opportunity with Clarks I took a long deep breath. Because the truth was, HELL YES I was interested. Comfortable, quality well-made shoes sounded AWESOME. But then, honestly, I had a moment where I was like, “Wait a minute, am I turning into an old lady? SAY IT ISN’T SO!” So of course, I took to the internet to do some research. I hopped over to Zappos
and was actually very surprised by what I saw: Yes, shoes that were well made and crafted with comfort in mind. But also beautiful, stylish shoes for someone who is NOT an old lady. I rejoiced right there in my car!

Immediately I knew I wanted to participate. Because stylish ladies of the world, HEAR THIS: you can totally have both gorgeous AND super comfortable shoes. It can be done! And no one will be the wiser. Clarks sent me a few pairs of shoes to review and honestly they have really worked well into my wardrobe. Wessex Azure
I wore the booties they sent me the other day and all day long people kept complimenting me. Each time I felt the need to lean over to whisper “You’ll never guess where they are from…” Every single lady I spoke to was shocked to hear they were from Clarks, but I think the secret is getting out. And the best part? At the end of the day, I didn’t even look for my flip flops!
