I have been a huge fan of TOMS Shoes since they first came out!
My first pair ever was a pair of black sparkly ones, and I think they were given to me by my beloved Sam!
Since then I have acquired many pairs. Between me and Paige, I am sure that we have had over a dozen pairs.
Paige recently received her monthly Stitch Fix box (another obsession of mine)! She opened the box and I immediately caught a glimpse of the beautiful blue and white bag that I know all too well. The anticipation was boiling in my stomach as she looked over each piece of clothing, concentrating way too hard on this blue sweater thing that would definitely not fit me. But I knew whatever was in the bag would fit me just fine!
She finally made it to the bag and pulled out a pair of plain red canvas Toms. Though she was not as enthusiastic about the shoes as she was about that tiny sweater, I was immediately drawn to them. So much so, that as I was putting her new things away, the Toms got put away in my closet! She found them later and informed me that they were “hers” and she carted them off to her room. No worries though…it was not long before I found something to wear them with and I quickly snag them back. I will never forget the first time I wore them (even though it was like 2 weeks ago). All day long, I would have this happiness run through my body every time I looked down at my feet.
Since then I have worn every item in my closet that would complement these beautiful shoes. Since I do not have a lot of red things, every neutral outfit has recently gotten a splash of color. Even my son wears and loves Toms.
When I have them on I feel like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz,
and I just want to click my heels together and say “there’s no place like…vacation, there’s no place like vacation.” Then when I open my eyes I will be laying on a beautiful beach in the Caribbean where the water is actually blue and my responsibilities are nowhere in sight. Lathering tanning oil on my much thinner tanner and taller body…
Oh sorry, I got a little carried away.
These shoes have brought new meaning to my wardrobe. They can turn a plain ole gray and black tee into a masterpiece! My skinny jeans have never looked so good. Being in close proximity to these beautiful cherry bombs can bring life to any old garment!
