Earth shoes for the winter (and a giveaway!)

standard September 21, 2012 166 responses

So, a while back, as spring was starting to break, I wrote a blog post raving about how Earth Shoes was going to make my summer, but how I couldn’t really demonstrate how gorgeous they would look with my summer wardrobe because all of my summer clothes were still in boxes.

I have good news. My summer clothes are no longer in boxes. Neither are my winter clothes. Though, to be fair, I live in California where it neither gets really hot nor really cold, so all my clothes are the same no matter the season.

I also have bad news. Today, on the day when I’m to write a blog post raving about how Earth Shoes are going to make my Winter, my lead photographer, C, fell off the monkey bars and broke her arm.

It is rather hard to take photos with just one arm.

She’s feeling fine, but we did have to enlist the little sister’s help with the photos and, even though the photo shoot proved highly entertaining, I didn’t have it in me to attempt more than one outfit.

So, in short, I love the adorable shoes that Earth sent me to see me through the winter. I’ve always had a soft spot for loafers and I love how these are so grown-up all while being a fun reddish shade of brown aptly called “Merlot.”

In my past lives I’ve always looked to loafers to carry me through the winter. In recent years I’ve somehow fallen prey to other, less classic, styles of shoes and I’m thrilled to be getting back to my roots.

Look how great I look in these? (Please to remember that the photographer is 5 and that her broken 7yo sister was laughing and distracting her. Plus, I think I look cute fuzzy and/or without a head. No?)

Alright, alright, I’m kidding. Here’s my winter uniform: my new jeans (not Mom Jeans thank you!), a cute t-shirt, and my new Earth shoes. Guarantee that if you see me about town, and I’ve had a chance to shower already, that’s what I’ll be wearing!

Cute, right?
