It is fact, that as a mom, we spend less time and money on ourselves and more on our kids. I will say I struggle to spend money on myself so I’ll wear the same things until they fall apart. But my kids are clothed and looking cute. I’ve learned that if I can simplify my needs and streamline things I’m more likely to have the correct items and look decent. I know I have too many shoes but I just can’t part with some of the pretty heels that I once wore, before kids and messing up my ankle during pregnancy. Twice.
Below I’ve listed the shoes that I believe are must haves. Yes I know you probably have those flip flops and even some Crocs, but I’m not counting those. You’ll probably also want a pair of boots, but I’ve learned that boots aren’t the easiest to find and there’s so many options so that’s a major personal choice.
