Lets talk about TomKat...

Oh my gosh remember when they were a thing?!?
I do, because I just watched a Katie Holmes style story on E! last week.. but anyway I'm not talking about that Tom, today I'm talking about these Toms...
Toms one for one sneakers.. would you call them sneakers? I wouldn't go running in them but I suppose they're a form of sneaks.. anyway I never hopped on that Toms train, I thought it was a great gesture I love when companies give back. If you don't know the story you can read about it here - Toms give back
 
But I just didn't see myself wearing them, they aren't really cute to me.. ? They're kind of weird looking and not my style, I figured I would never purchase a pair BUT THEN I got a pair for Christmas 2013 and everything changed...
 
^ these are the exact pair I received Christmas 2013
purchase them here - My toms
 
Christmas morning I was like "oh yeah, great, alright.."
That spring when I remembered "Oh hey I have those toms in the basement"
I put them on..
and I never took them off ever again.
End of story.
 
Seriously they are soooo comfy and go with everything!! shorts, pants, capris, fancy, formal, wedding...Wear them to whatever! They're like marshmallows on your feet! I wore mine until they legitimately died. Honestly they took a dagger to the heart.. It was tragic really.
 
I was at my grandparents house letting my dog out to pee and their driveway is pebbles (stones? rocks? I'm at a loss for what those driveways are, but you know) I stepped on an arrow shaped teeny tiny rock and it stabbed me right through the sole of my Tom!
Its the tiniest little rock but it must be as sharp as a knife because its now stuck in the sole and every time I wear them, my foot gets stabbed to the point of blood loss.
 
So I caved this year and bought a new pair. If it hadn't have been for the rock of death my other toms are in mint condition, even though I wore the heck out of them! The hardest part about ordering new ones was deciding on a style! I am so indecisive, I'm the kind of person who needs there to only be 3 choices not 300 because I will never pick!
After much debate I decided to go with these - My New Toms! 
They're neutral enough to go with anything, won't cut me off at the ankle like a dark or bold pattern would - because I need all the height I can get!
But yet they have a little flair with the inside design and the colour Agate is like a mild grey/greenish so it won't show the dirt like the cream colour would.

Anywho I am in love and have been dancing around the house in them for 3 days...
The shipping was incredibly fast!! I don't think it was a week and they were at my door and I also shopped the sale! I sign up for emails from everywhere, I knew there was a Toms save the shipping sale coming up so I waited for that. I may have been able to hold out for an even better discount but I really wanted them by April for a special vacay. (Never pay full price unless you desperately want something and/or its almost out of stock!)
 
Have you been wondering about the toms hype? I'm a hype believer now!
Have you boarded the Toms train??
Am I cray???
Or as these like sneaker marshmallow pillows for your feet????

  3. I was the same way...I said I would never buy a pair, I did!!! They are light weight, comfortable and adorable! I love how they come in so many patters, very overwhelming to pick just one tho! My favorite pair is a silver sparkly pair, which of course I said I would never wear anything sparkly and yet here I am...Cinderella in my Toms!! Thanks for sharing and hope you enjoy your cute new pair of Toms!

    1. too funny!! I am normally the Cinderella of my family, anything and everything blingy draws me in!! It hurt me to purchase this pair because they're too plain for my typical taste, but I'm turning over a new leaf! hahaha

  4. I've been wearing Toms for years!!! When you have size 12 feet you are limited to stylish girly footwear. I can't speak highly enough about the comfort and functionality and recommend them to everyone. I own a good 10 pairs including boots, sandles and leather flats.

    1. I feel ya! my size is 7-8 and because its so common things are always sold out!!
      the struggle is real!
      I saw some really really really nice toms boots this year, I didn't even realize they had so many options! I think I'm going to splurge on a pair for next year :)

  6. I totally felt the same in the beginning and then I got a pair of Bobs (similar style) and fell in love. We like to take long walks, so comfort is a must!

  7. I considered a sparkly pair for my wedding but couldn't decide and ended up going barefoot for the ceremony and had lovely H&M gold flats for the reception. But this has renewed my Toms interest. If they're truly comfortable and cute, I may have to try a pair!

    1. The toms would've been cute! but barefoot sounds so sweet and romantic. is romantic the right word? I don't know but it makes me feel like it was a intimate moment! I bet the gold flats were lovely too! I cant get enough H&M!
