Toms Spring Preview and Shoe Design Event

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to check out Toms Shoes showroom to see what they have in store for spring. And let me tell you, you NEED a pair of his new flats. I know, I know, we are heels girls around here, but if you are going to swap your 4 inchers for some flats, these are just too perfect.

I love what Toms Shoe Company stands for. Their one for one program is helping give shoes to the less fortunate. So with every pair you buy, Toms gives a pair to someone who needs them. So amazing right? For Spring you are going to see a few new style, like the fabulous wedge pictured below. I mean, how cute would these looks with shorts or  fun printed summer dress? There are several new printed classics as well as some funky patterns too. And we can't forget Toms new sunglasses line. There were so many great styles for both men and women. I am itching for summer to get here just looking at all the cool shades! 

Once I checked out the upcoming styles, I was given a pair of white classic Toms and told to design them however I wanted! EEK! This activity is something they are starting to incorporate in schools, youth centers, and organizations around the country. Getting kids involved in Toms purpose and organization is a great way to help them understand what they are doing and giving to others.  This was such a great idea. Although I had a blast chatting with other fellow "shoe designers," I must say creativity is something I am not always the best at. I think my patience starts to get the best of me. But I gave it a shot and came out with some basic albeit unique Toms. You could say I stuck with my College school spirit. I am actually pretty amazed that I was able to finish both shoes! But what girl turns down the chance to designer her own Toms? Not even this creatively-challanged fashionista. Sorry! 

Summer is almost here and you know comfort is essential on those hot summer months. I highly suggest you get your hands on a pair of toms for the season. You will kick yourself later if you don't. And my suggestion? The new wedge sandal, of course!

My end result. Kept it simple and minimal with a little bling thrown in.
 Mostly for fear of messing them up beyond being able to wear! 

Happy Monday! Here's to a fabulous week! xo
