Hello friends! In order to supplement all the homemade gifts we've been working on this year, Ellie and I went out for some Christmas shopping to pick out a little something meaningful and special for each person. Martin and I have been looking for more opportunities to teach the older kiddos little lessons in a one-on-one setting, and that's where BucketFeet comes in!
One important thing that we're trying to implement starting this month and into the new year is living more on purpose, and more simply but with more meaning. We've been working on gleaning through closets and storage shelves for things to donate that don't get enough use for the space they take up, and when we purchase we make sure that it's quality pieces that will be loved and that are special or unique in some way, like these awesome shoes from BucketFeet that Ellie and I are wearing!
As soon as I heard about BucketFeet and how each pair of shoes is designed by artists or all kinds, I instantly fell in love with the idea and couldn't wait to check them out! I took way too long browsing through the site, bookmarking my favorite pairs (too many to count), and reading the artist's bios that are included with each pair of shoes. I read stories from illustrators, writers, tattooists, graffiti artists, and more from over 50 countries, and I couldn't wait to order a couple pieces of wearable art to have in my life!
what we're wearing:
purple capris, gift
one little belt, c/o
deb floppy beanie, (borrowed from mama)
Another aspect that I really adore about BucketFeet is that they have sneakers not only for Women but also for Men and Children (many of them matching pairs!), and that was so important to me because I really want to work on teaching my kiddos about creating and finding art, and really change the way they interact with art, which is exactly what Bucketfeet is all about.
I'd better stop gushing and let you go visit them so you can see what I'm talking about, but in wrapping up I really want to encourage you to think about adding BucketFeet to your shopping list for Christmas! Giving the gift of wearable art that's also a beautifully packaged, incredibly comfortable, creative, and fun fashion accessory that they're going to love and wear over and over just can't be beat. and they even offer their own gift guide to help you out! Also lets be honest they're ridiculously affordable for the quality so that's a bonus for us.haha
Here are a few of my current favorites, because like I said it was impossible to pick just one!
Also as a special bonus, BucketFeet is offering a 25% off discount code for the first 20 readers to make a purchase using the code: FRECKLEDFOX at checkout, so hurry over and have fun shopping!
Thanks so much for stopping by today guys, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead! Also can I just point out how ridiculously big this girl is getting? She'll be 5 in just a few months! Later guys:)
