Closet Craving :: Toms.

I have been craving a pair of Toms for some time now.  I'm pretty fashionably challenged, especially when it comes to dressing as a teacher.  I've mentioned before that comfy shoes are a necessity for all the standing and walking I do on a normal school day (ps. my "classroom" is a trailer conveniently located on the complete opposite end of the school).  Every time Toms comes out with the perfect pair that I want, they either get sold out or I have no money to spend on frivolous wants (wahhhh...such is the life of a teacher). 

The Toms Cordones are probably some of my favs.  As is typical, they are sold out of most of the cool ones, but the website shows them (like on the top header).

I can dig the pink for the spring.  Last summer I saw some beige/tan Cordones with leather piping (correct term?).  Of course they are no more.  You can also get the Cordones with laces. 

They had some pastel colored wedges last year that I am keeping my fingers crossed for!  I like the braided touch on these.  They also have them in black.

These might actually be my favorites that they have in stock, yet of course my size is sold out.  Ughhh...thus is my life it feels.  

I can just envision myself wearing a pair of Toms out and about spring, summer, winter, or fall!  What better way to cover up my un-pedicured toes in the spring/summer months!

they aren't very cute, but dansko clogs (or similar & cheaper ones from llbean) are soooo comfy. i wore them almost everyday of teaching.

I have two pairs of Toms and I really do love them (which makes them especially awesome since I'm a total heels girl and never thought I'd see the day when I said I loved a pair of flats). I have the gold glitter Toms and the navy pinstriped "love is the new black" pair. The only thing is that I ALWAYS wear a 7.5 . . . my gold glitters are a 7.5 and were snug for the first couple months I wore them, so then I ordered the second pair in an 8, and they're slightly big. :) haha. Both are still totally wearable, but they run a little differently than some shoes, so try on a pair if you see them in a store before ordering!

I also have a closet craving for them! I thought they were ugly at first, but they are definitely growing on me! If you want to be a GOOD teacher, you really do have to stay on your feet all day, monitoring, managing, etc. It sucks for my wardrobe because I'll have on a cute outfit up until my tennis shoes! Grr...

Oh, and I also teach in a "trailer" or as we refer to it in my junior high.. "The Mobile Village." (Seriously, it's practically a village of portables.)
