To Tom or Not to Tom?

I've thought about buying a pair of TOMS Shoes for a while. The only thing that has held me back is well, let's face it... they just aren't cute. It's such a great cause though and I've heard they are SO comfortable! I've found some that look my style...




I also just realized they come in a wedge! Cute!

I only wished they had sparkly wedges... then it would really be right up my alley.

 I'm sure most of you know that for every pair of shoes you buy they donate a pair to a child in need. This would make me feel so good!! I love helping people, and wish that somehow I had a ton of money so that I could actually help others. Right now it's just a dollar here and there at the grocery store. Let's also not forget founder, Blake Mycoskie, is a fellow Amazing Race Alum... shout out to Season 2! He actually got the idea for TOMS while traveling through Argentina on the Race. I can totally see where he is coming from too. I saw the same poverty while in Brazil... it is SAD y'all. I believe everyone needs to see this to truly appreciate what you have.

Do any of you own Toms? Do you like them? What do you wear them with?

  2. I have some friends that where them and look super cute in them. I just think I would look like a dork in them and I don't know what you wear them with? I think they wear leggings with theirs and I don't wear leggings. My cousin wore a sparkly pair at her wedding reception.

  3. I thought the same thing at first-hideous! But then I bought some and fell in love. I think they look best with shorts or like short skirts. I'm buying the pink glitters next! I'm not a fan of the wedges.

  4. I went to order those tweed wedges last night but sadly they didn't have my size! I am sure if you wait a little bit they will eventually have the sparkly wedges! I am sure they are coming out with more for their fall line.

  5. Didn't they use to have plain white ones that you could basically DIY your own design? (I love the pink though). i remember being a youth leader and the teens bought a pair and decorated it, writing words of encouragement on them before sending them to where ever they were going. Also, Skeechers has BOBS, which is a part of TOMS ... they might have more sparkly things.

    I say do!

  8. I am definitely not a TOMS girl. I think they are for a great cause, but I'm still not sure I would wear them.

  9. I feel like the pink sparkly ones are good for 'around the house' casual styles or like if you're going skiing to wear around the resort...I dunno, I am still very anti tom myself. My sister in law looks cute in hers, but I just can't do it.

  14. Ha, the only thing holding me back from buying them is the price! And I know I’d have to get a pair in just about every color because of how comfortable I hear they are. They aren’t the cutest things ever but I can deal with it… I’m all about comfort and casual.

  15. Oh, I love this post! I have been thinking the same thing lately(maybe I should just break down and get some even if they aren't cute because you will be helping a child!) If I did buy some,I would def get the wedge.

  16. Okay...here's what you do...to help the cause... buy a pair...but give them to Bubba...she would love 'em...they look just like something she would rave about...she's all about comfort! :)

  17. I'm thinking about getting a pair just to wear with jeans or shorts running errands and when we are just hanging out. A few of my friends have gotten them and always look cute in them. I'm loving the pink sparkly pair!

  18. I have a pair of the silver glitter ones and they are the best. SO comfy and pretty much can go with anything. Totes a good buy.

  19. Love my gold glitter toms and my green canvas ones. I was not a fan at first because I thought they were so ugly! But they're actually really cute once they're on your feet, and SO COMFY! I love my gold glitters, I'm wearing them today!
