LOVETAZA 7008173-5i’m excited to be partnering with M.Gemi today to giveaway a pair of shoes in the style and color of your choice to three lucky winners! these shoes are not only gorgeous and feel a bit sophisticated, but they are crazy comfortable, which is everything for me as a mother who is on her feet all day long trying to keep up with my active littles.

these photos are from an afternoon last week in victoria, canada, where we visited the coolest rose garden that was so picturesque. we played around there for a while, trying to not kick our ball into the rose bushes while getting out some wiggles before dinner.

i wanted to show you guys the bottom of these felize moccasins, because it truly feels like i’m walking on clouds when i wear them. M.Gemi shoes are made in italy and it’s so apparent that quality is important to them, because of the thoughtful details in design. also, i almost wanted to keep the packaging and shoe box forever after i received them because the presentation was just beautiful. a few days later, i still had the shoe box and pretty tissue paper on our kitchen table and josh was like, “um. so…what are we doing with this?” haha.
