What are Juils?

You know that feeling you get when you are walking barefoot in the grass or on the beach? You get that same “feel good” mood-lifting effect from wearing Juil’s Footwear. Wearing Juil’s is like the next best thing to being barefoot.

 

I reviewed a pair of JUIL Mesa sandals last spring and honestly, I wore them ALL SUMMER LONG. They became my favorite pair of sandals. I even found myself wearing them around the house as slippers… So comfortable and actually just quite addictive.

Aren’t they cute?!

So of course I was dying to try a pair of their new ballet flats! I received the Juil The Wing Tip Women’s Ballet Flat, one of three ballet flats they now offer in addition to their large selection of sandals.

First off, these flats are wicked cute! What’s not to love? Perfect shade of brown, soft and supple design, stretchy elastic to keep them on and a cute wing tip design on the toe. Absolutely just the cutest flats I’ve seen in a while!

I got size 7 (I normally wear a size 7 in flats and 7.5 in other styles, but they only come in whole sizes). Well, I should have gotten size 8 I think! I recommend if you wear a half size that you size up because these do run a big snug. Just something to keep in mind!

Price: $99

The Must-Have Item for All Sock-Free Shoes

With “barefoot style” shoes like oxfords and boat shoes being all the rage this season, you will definitely need a pair of Sock-Free Saviors from Foot Petals.

Sock-Free Saviors from Foot Petals
($18.95 per pair from Zappos.com)

Tired of wearing socks with those low profile skimmers, flats, and sneakers and having them obnoxiously stick out in an annoying fashion? Ditch the socks and slip these Foot Petals® sock-free saviors into your favorite shoes for instant foot protection! You’ll be able to wear your favorite shoes and feel great at the same time! And honestly, isn’t that every gal’s dream come true?

Well it certainly is! You can’t always wear “fashionable socks” or ankle socks with every style of shoe. Some styles just call for bare feet like Sperry’s and flats.

Sock-Free Saviors have a DRI comfort moisture management system that is built into the terry cloth padding that keeps feet cool and dry all day long while the PORON® cushioning absorbs shock making these ideal for any pair of shoes that you wear often.

The amazing Microban anti-microbial protection in these shoe liners doesn’t rub, wear, or wash away AND they fits all types of closed-toes shoes. If they get dirty, just gently hand wash in cold water with mild detergent and dry flat. Best of all, Foot Petal products are proudly made in the U.S.A. Score!!!

Here are a couple of pairs I’m wearing sock-free saviors in right now…

Mommy & Me Ballet Flats from Yosi Samra

This Mother’s Day, you and your daughter(s) can both rock your favorite Yosi Samra ballet flats! The classic, colorful and super comfortable fold-up flats are a favorite of celebs like Tiffani Thiessen and her daughter Harper Renn Smith as well as Sarah Jessica Parker and her twins Marion & Tabitha, and Jessica Alba and daughter Honor Warren.

Yosi Samra flats are available in an array of leathers, prints and glitters! So mothers and daughters can go matchy-matchy or mix it up with unique YS styles.

My daughter and I chose polka dots…

Yosi Samra Flats

They are SO cute! Not only that, they are probably the most comfortable ballet flats…er… actually they are pretty much the most comfortable shoes I own. Period!

My daughter LOVES her pair and wants to wear them all the time. I was very happy to find a pair of ballet flats for her that not only stay on her feet but don’t give her blisters. These flats are definitely a win all around.

The flats retail from $44 to $55 for kids (toddler – teen sizes) and $66 to $88 for women, making them the perfect Mother’s Day gift if your budget is under $100!

I found that the women’s shoes run true to size, but some of the children’s styles run small. Call the company at 646-837-7914 before ordering to double check since it’s almost Mother’s Day and you wouldn’t have time to exchange them!


You can find Yosi Samra flats at Shopbop, INTERMIX, Scoop and online at www.yosisamra.com.

Outfit Ideas: Spring Time Blues

I saw this outfit idea from AVON featuring a wardrobe staple – the chambray shirt. It’s a must-have for spring and looks especially chic paired with leggings on the weekends or with a pencil skirt and heels at the office.

What an easy to put together alternative to jeans and a tee, right? So much cuter for spring too!

I decided I’d give it a try and I think it really is a cute look…

The two-tone comfort flats ($35) are actually very comfortable and are a great pop of color. I wanted to bring even more color into the outfit though so I decided on a coral bubble necklace I got from Zulily a few weeks ago. I think it really completes the look!

I’m also loving these super comfy capri length leggings (2 for $20) because they are soft, comfortable, not-too-thin and a must for the weekends!

What do you think of this outfit? Is it something you’d wear for a casual occasion?

Outfit Ideas: Red with Polka Dots

Wondering what to wear with polka dots? How to wear red? Or maybe you’re not sure how to accessorize without overdoing it? This spring, try your hand at mixing and matching patterns and bold colors like wearing polka dots and accessorizing with red shoes, red lips and a bright red handbag.

While browsing Pinterest last week, I found this pin and I just fell in love with this look…

 

So I put together a similar outfit to show you how you can mix and match different types of accessories to create a similar look…

The Jafa Mary Janes are a key component to this outfit being “mom friendly”. These shoes are part of Jafa’s new spring line and are not only super comfortable (and come in lots of colors besides just red) but they are handmade in Israel with incredible attention to detail. If you are looking for something comfortable, that you can run around and chase your kiddos in, these are the ticket.

If you don’t have small children and prefer to wear heels, switch the comfy mary janes out for these Red High Heels ($26) with double strap across the foot, and flower accent at the side. Or maybe you’d prefer Red Patent Ballet Flats ($52) with a cute bow on the toe. Either way, a bright red shoe is key to this outfit!

Would you wear this outfit? How would you change it to suit your unique style?
