I’ve been addicted to style for as long as I could earn a buck and take myself shopping. The day I had a driver’s license AND earn my own spending money was like hearing angels sing. You guys think I’m being dramatic but I’m totally serious. As much as I love my mother (hi Mom!) she used to dress me exactly like her! And I hated every minute of it. She’d come pick me up from ballet every night, sometimes with a shopping bag sitting in my foot space. You’d think I’d be excited for the surprise clothing but I cringed. Normally she would find a t-shirt or some such at one of our local department stores and then find one in another color for me! The horror yall, the horror.
Fortunately both of our senses of style have evolved throughout the years and the age of online shopping arrived! Zappos has been a forever love of mine. The variety of brands, sales, and next day shipping (YESSSS) secured in me an immediate fan. I’m very pleased to introduce you guys to ECCO – a beautiful line of premium leather shoes and accessories. I’ll admit, I’m a tough buy when it comes to choosing sneakers over a pair of heels. It’s an odd thing but sneakers seem to cut my feet up when heels never treat me wrong, weird right? I’ve found a revelation, however, in ECCO sneakers.
I wore these guys (besides trying them on for fit) on my blog shoot. We did quite a bit of walking around the farmer’s market and it felt like I’ve worn these sneakers for years. They were SO COMFORTABLE and I don’t say that lightly. The leather is super soft and the wear is snug, supportive, but not stiff.
The baby pink naturally made me weak in the knees. Pink definitely categorizes as a neutral to me – I pair it with just about anything. This is also a newer pairing for me in terms of sneaks with a dress – but I’m freaking loving it, aren’t you? I feel super fab, a little dressy with a little casual and a whole lotta sass! What do you like pairing your sneakers with? Have you tried mixing with a dress?
Let’s also talk about my super roomy yet non-bulky backpack, also by ECCO. Made in their premium leather, this beauty felt as soft as a pillow. It’s great for toting around my essentials without weighing down my arm like most of my purses do (because I’m a pack rat). I love using this as a camera bag on days I’m running around shooting! ECCO was founded in Denmark back in 1963. They are a family owned brand inspired by the colors and textures of nature, so you find all of your essential neutral accessory staples in one place! They provide over 20,000 jobs worldwide, isn’t that incredible?
A few things to remember when it comes to Zappos: their customer service is impeccable! I actually had to call about an order recently and the rep on the phone seriously made me want to be his best friend! He was super nice and hilarious! We got on the subject of my blog and he left me some commentary. Is that not amazing?! LOVE people like that! They have fast, like super fast, and free shipping, a 365 return policy (hello Christmas shopping!), and all the ease we need in our busy lives. I hope you fall in love with them as much as I have!
