Long before I saw those two pink lines show up on that pregnancy test (yes, the one that I STILL have on my nightstand … gross), I imagined having a baby.
More specifically, I imagined a baby girl. Pink. Frilly. Pretty. I couldn’t wait for all the fun clothes, shoes, purses, baby dolls and all things sweet that come with raising a little lady.
But most of all, the shoes. Shoes, people, are a staple even in a baby’s life.
I’m kind of ashamed to admit there are at least 11 pairs of Charlotte’s shoes not pictured here.
And by “kind of ashamed,” I mean super sad that I didn’t round them all up and include them in the photo.
We love shoes at this house, and I’m positive Charlotte has the best collection of us all.
So, when the sweet people over at Freshly Picked offered to send Charlotte a pair of their baby moccasins for me to review, I
peed my pants a little just about freaked out and sent the fastest confirmation email I’ve ever sent in my life.
Because let me tell you something. The first time I saw Kourtney Kardashian’s kids in FP moccs (that’s how you say it if you want to be cool), I knew I … I mean, Charlotte … had to have a pair.
I chose the Heirloom Limited Edition moccs, because the gold-studded leather spoke to me. (Something like, “You need to choose me or else what is the point in life?”) I was worried that they might not go with very many outfits, but I’ve made it work. Basically, I plan her outfits around these shoes. Totally not kidding.
But here’s the thing. I have several pairs of shoes for baby that are some of the cutest things on the planet, but they’re so impractical because they will. not. stay. on. her. feet. (I’m looking at you, baby flip flops.)
Well, Freshly Picked knew what they were doing. The elastic in these moccs keep her shoes on her feet, even through her incessant pulling and attempting to eat them. (True story, right there.) However, they aren’t tight and don’t leave indentions on her chubby little feet. I even ordered them about a size too big so she could wear them longer, and they still stayed on. We all win here.
And look – if that leather can withstand those adorable little inverted-bunny teeth (two on the bottom), it’s all worth it in my book. Quality is scarce these days, but these – these are legit.
I’m also super excited about having these shoes for when Charlotte starts walking (which will seriously be any day now). They’re soft and comfortable, and they don’t get all wonky when she takes steps, and she won’t trip over a hard sole. Basically: awesome.
I’m so in love with these shoes, and we get so many compliments on them every time she wears them.
But they aren’t just for girls! No, sir. There are so many colors that would be stinkin’ cute for a boy. But these – they are my favorite. Now I need a little baby Jack.
You’re welcome for introducing you to your next obsession.
Now, if only they made them in my size.
They don’t, sadly. But you know what they do make? Bags. I’m pretty sure I need this one in my life. I wonder if they need someone to review it? Pick me, pick me!
Fortunately for you, my dear friends, you could win your very own pair of Freshly Picked moccasins for that little one in your life! Or, maybe there isn’t a little one in your life – enter the giveaway anyway. You’ll inevitably be invited to a baby shower in the near future, and if that Momma opens a pair of these moccs from you, you’ll be the envy of all the guests. I’m just saying.
So, enter the giveaway below, and tell all your friends! Tell your enemies, too, I don’t care! I love these shoes so much, and I know you will, too!
