Mom Style Files: Surprises and Shoes {#HotterSurprise}

Brace yourself I’m going to say some “s” words. Not the swearing “s” word, or the word snow {which we saw WAY too much of this year}, but every girl’s favorite “s” words.


Surprises and Shoes!


I love happy mail {obviously by my continued obsession with Stitch Fix and Fabletics} So when Hotter Shoes said they would surprise us with a pair of shoes for this month’s Mom Style Files, I kicked up my heels.


Personally, as I’ve mentioned before shoes and I have a love / hate relationship. I like swooning and drooling and shopping for shoes, but the trying on, and finding ones that fit, leaves me feeling defeated.




I met Hotter, and then my worries were over.


I already have two pairs of Hotter boots – the Seville ankle boots and the Cheshire, but with summer in full swing it was time to step into something a little less bulky.


The folks at Hotter challenged us to style a pair of their shoes, for myself and Melissa as well as our Mom Style Files Challenger, Hyacynth.


Here’s the clincher we have NO idea which shoes we will receive. It could be sandals, tennis shoes, pumps or loafers.


We are being Surprised by Hotter.

After perusing their website I’m crossing my fingers and toes that I receive one of these lovely styles to kick off summer.


I already own the bird dress, and the necklace is from last month’s sponsor {made} Community. The Dawn sandals would be the perfect match for a day in paradise.

Next up – what I would pick for Melissa. Well, she DOES have four kiddos and yet she needs to be able to juggle pick ups, drop offs and business meetings, so I figured why not take a stylish, yet casual denim dress and punch it up with yellow, and the Maldives wedge.

Then we have our lovely challenger Hyacynth. She loves being comfy, but also being stylish. I went with a nautical theme, and used the adorable Cruise shoes {appropriately named}.

Well, now I’m just {im}patiently sitting by the mailbox waiting for my Hotter Surprise. I have no idea what will be in the box, but I do know it will be comfy and cute.


The nitty gritty: I received a pair of Hotter Shoes in exchange for this blog post. However, all opinions and love of shoes is my own.
