When I come across a must have piece, I immediately imagine myself in the most uncomfortable, non-mom shoes–which then ruins the whole moment. Yet, in reality, just because you’re mom’ing, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to eliminate all of those amazing outfits you fantasize about..
Last week I fell in love with a beautiful drop waist ruffle dress by English Factory from Shopbop, perfect for the summer. When it arrived, I thought, well how am I supposed to wear this if I can’t really wear heels most days?
I first tried paring this gorgeous number with a very light weight pair of white sneakers–which worked like a charm. Next I tried my baby blue Keds, Kate Spade edition, and instantly fell in love. I then realized that this dress would work great with nude flats, which worked beautifully. Next, I felt a little more brave, and tried out some good ol’ wedges–I honestly find wedges to be the most comfy just because they take pressure off of my heels. I suffer from an off and on case of plantar fasciitis, so I tend to do better with a little height. Finally, my last look is definitely the ideal look for this dress… hair up, a basket purse (see my last post on the picnic basket trend here), blush sunnies and pastel colored heels. Now with this look, I wouldn’t be caught trying to keep up with my kiddos–no ma’am!
I believe that it’s super important to wear what you want–but the reality is that some of us still have to get our mom on. While mom’ing around, simply adapt to your kids by changing up your shoes!
Check out my pics below to see how I took this dress from chic, to mom chic! You can shop this post below for this gorgeous dress, and all of my featured shoes.

Happy Monday loves!
