At 38 weeks pregnant, we can all agree that I’m in the comfort phase of life. Style is still important to me, but less so when compared to comfort. Can I get a resounding AMEN from all the expecting mamas?!? I desperately need to feel comfortable while I waddle around these days and loves, I have a gem to share with you today!
But first, a little history — slowly but surely I’ve been capsuling my wardrobe. It started after I read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up this summer. That book taught me to ask one question when organizing my life, and more specifically, my closet. The big question is: “Does this item bring me joy?” If the answer is no, adios! If the answer is yes, that particular top, dress, pair of shoes … gets to stay. It’s that simple and has totally helped me par down what I need in my closet.
This “joy” question has been especially helpful when it comes to shoes. Because, well, confession alert — I’m a recovering collector. Now, as I enter my 30s in 2016 (what the what?!?), I have fully embraced quality over quantity. No more do I nab every cute pair of shoes I see. I’m past that season in my life; I’m a busy mom on the go who needs a blend of comfort and style. Quick, cheap, and cute just doesn’t cut it for this gal. Which is why I love and adore Dansko. Like, really, really love.
For many, the brand Dansko will first remind you of their traditional shoe that is so popular among professions. But, did you know that Dansko is booming with amazingly chic boots, clogs, mary janes, and more?
May I introduce you to my two favorites, the Markie Ankle Boot and the Maisie Mary Jane.
Outfit One — Markie Ankle Boots, Dansko /// Socks (simliar), SmartWool /// Leggings, Ingrid & Isabel /// Dress, Target /// Scarf, Stella & Dot /// Jacket, Costco /// Hat (similar), Nordstrom
Outfit Two — Maisie Mary Jane, Dansko /// Lucy Skirt, LulaRoe /// Black Tee, A Pea In the Pod /// Necklace (similar), Nordstrom
Apparently I’m not the only one head over heels for Dansko these days — Dansko was recently nominated for Footwear Plus Magazine’s 2015 Plus Awards. You can place your vote for Dansko through December 31, 2015 here. I did, obviously :) And don’t forget to visit Dansko around the web —> Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest!

Thank you to Dansko for sponsoring today’s post! I’m a lover of your shoes for life!
