With each new season comes an opportunity for a bit of a stock-take in both our lives and our wardrobes. Compared to other areas in my home where I can be ruthlessly brutal during a ‘culling season’, I do tend to hoard a wee bit when it comes to my wardrobe – for good reason though. I still have my original Levi’s denim jacket from my uni days 20 years ago and because I purchased a classic wash, it still looks great especially now it’s authentically vintage lol.
This summer I’m getting rid of that which I do not LOVE – à la Marie Kondo, and adding more classic pieces to my wardrobe, styles which will endure and stand the test of time.
A (very exciting) addition to my summer wardrobe is my first pair of shoes from Ziera.
Metallics are a huge trend in footwear for the second summer in a row and this year I’m totally onboard! The Lido was my first choice due to it’s classic styling and on-point silver finish, plus, a loafer is a versatile trans-seasonal shoe you can wear year round with jeans, trousers, skirts and shorts – that’s pretty much got New Zealand covered for spring and summer right?
3 Reasons to upstyle your Mum Uniform with Ziera
- Cost per Wear – There are certain things in particular that I’m happy to spend a little more money on when I’m shopping for myself or the family; sunglasses, purses and shoes. My reasoning for this is that I wear/use each of these three things every day and quality options will last many seasons, easily bringing down the CPW (cost per wear) for each – (this is important financial terminology to note if you’re lobbying your significant other for a new pair of kicks!)
- Flexible Styling – Choosing the right accessories and footwear can also make or break an outfit or breathe new life into one past it’s prime – both great things to have up your sleeve when you’re living on Mum-Time and a family-friendly budget.
- Expand your comfort zone – When you never sit down….. (because #MumLife), good shoes are an investment you’ll never regret. Here’s a secret though, it is possible to find comfortable shoes that are NOT Chuck Taylors :::::::gasp!:::::: I know this because I have seen it with my own eyes – the comfy, stylish shoes live at Ziera.
Now you know.
There you go Mamas! All the motivation you need to upstyle your Mum Wardrobe and break out of your sneaker safe-place this summer!
