I wore this outfit one Saturday as I ran errands, got my nails done, took Emerson to a birthday party, and went out to dinner.  Emerson told me she liked my outfit and said it was a “cool mom outfit.”  I know she was giving me a compliment but it only made me think of:

im-not-a-regular-mom-im-a-cool-mom-gifShe digs the heart on the tee (I think that's what makes the look “cool” for a first grader), and I like its soft feel and that it's a break from the band tees.  Speaking of break, after many years these silver brogues are finally broken in enough that not only was I blister-free at the end of the day, these shoes were darn comfortable too.  It reminds me of the Doc Marten break-in period back in high school; it was long but worth it in the end!

    I love this! You posted something a few weeks back with you wearing a really similar outfit, and I wasn’t sure about it then, but I really like this one. You look stylish yet comfortable!

    My daughter is 14. I like your shoes but my daughter would not even ride in the same car with me if I were wearing them.

    Any shoes that take years to break in would have been tossed long ago by me. You do look cool and the shoes make the look, but I couldn’t hack the break-in.

      I didn’t wear them that often to be honest. But to have a shoe that is such a statement yet a classic style that works for years to me is worth the time and effort! 🙂

    I use this reference all the time! With pride. I AM a cool (slash weird & embarrassing) mom *awkward Lucille Bluth wink*.
