So happy that Croc’s asked me to check out their new styles! I’ve been a huge fan for the longest time and my kids practically live in them, and I have to tell you the new selections are so adorable it’s gonna be really tough picking a favorite. There’s a ton of affordable options for everyone in the family. I’ll definitely be snagging a few pairs for family and friends who love to be stylish and comfy! Check out some of my favorite and what to wear them with below!
Pair the Aolani boots with leggings, skinny jeans or even a pair of shorts with tights. They’re super styilsh, super comfy and will be your go to boots!
These loafers are so cute and not too girly which I love!! I paired them with a basic trench and plaid top but they can be worn with everything all year round.
My boys live in crocs and these Cobbler boots will definitely be under the tree this year!!
My youngest has the Hover boat shoes and he calls them his ‘dressy’ shoes – so cute!
Nubuck Chukka Boots - Great boots for winter casual looks.
Crocs Hover Leather Boat Shoe - The all year round comfy shoe!
This Kim Kardashian look for less is an oldie but goodie! Since I spend most of my days working from home, I’m a big fan of quick ways to spruce up bottoms and tee’s in case I need to run out. By pairing with a classic black blazer, cute sandals and some of my favorite accessories like a boyfriend watch and aviator sunglasses, you’re good to go in a matter of minutes!
Blazer from Gap (similar version here), asymmetrical tank from Old Navy (no longer available), cargo skinny pant from Buckle (no longer available), Balenciaga inspired bag from Belloiris, sandals from The Jennifer Lopez Collection c/o of Kohl’s (similar version here), Ray-Ban Cats inspired sunglasses c/o Pan Oceanic Group (also seen here & here), gold boyfriend watch c/o meet mark (also seen here)
It’s the little things that count in life, like sending quick hello to a friend or birthday wishes to a loved one. Which is why, in today’s crazy busy world, I am such a big fan of a new App called justWink.
It’s FREE, super easy to use, full of personality and each card can be personalized with photos (my favorite part) and even a signature! I decided to have my son help me send one to his dad (he thought it was so cool that he could sign his name).
Check it out below and brighten up someone’s day with justWink…I guarantee they’ll love it as much as you do!
justWink is an awesome collection of greeting cards that feature bold colors, adorable illustrations, and witty copy for every occasion.
