Slippers – Your Winter Style Staple

Even though this week it was 72 degrees in November, we know winter is on the way. Long, cold, dark winter. And I don’t think I’m being a fortune teller if I predict that we all will be spending more time at home this winter, than in winters past. Less going out, more staying in. Dark at 5pm. Cold and snowy. Germs floating everywhere. That’s what we can look forward to. While this scenario could sound dreadful, I’m going to re-frame it to sound cozy. A time for hibernation perhaps. So, if there’s a place in your wardrobe to invest, to really get the return on a cost per wear basis – it’s your house clothes and even more specifically your house slippers.

Because even me, an infamous shoe addict (yes, honey, I do need to pack 3 pairs of black shoes for a weekend away – they all serve a different purpose).  I tend to not change my house slippers with every outfit. It’s more of a slippers for a season or two and then they get old and grungy (and smelly too if I’m being honest – barefoot + sweat = stink) so I replace them. Usually with the exact same style – because A. I’m not that exciting and B. my slippers are more function than fashion.  But also because in the past I’ve only really worn them at night or on the weekend. But now, I’m wearing them most days, all day long. So, it’s time to shake things up a bit. The moral of the story is, I’m on the hunt for a new pair of slippers.

Mother’s Day Gifts

Ladies can be super hard to buy gifts for. And mom’s in particular. Yes, we say we are happy with a handmade card or breakfast in bed. And we are. But, trust me, the effort of actually getting a gift for mom, especially at this time in history, when we are all cooped up, can make all the difference.

And if there are any guys reading this, ORDER SOMETHING NOW! The gifts your kids usually make in school and bring home are not happening this year – just FYI.

As women, we put our families first. And right now there is either a lot of cooking and cleaning happening (omg, in my house there is SO MUCH LAUNDRY!!). Or things are sort of lonely when you can’t see your loved ones because of quarantine. Neither is ideal, but it’s our collective reality.

Any way you slice it, we ladies need props. This is the time to cheer up the lady or ladies in your life. Mother’s Day, birthdays, just because I love you days. With health worries, and family worries, and money and job worries – you can spend a little or a lot and she’ll love it either way. Here are some gift ideas at all different price points I’m confident she’s gonna love.
