Bridget Hunt is a mom and lifestyle blogger from the North Shore of Boston, MA where she loves life for most of the year. She’s got six kids (it’s a crazy story!), and when they’re not keeping her busy, you can find her snapping pictures, taking walks to local coffee shops or the library, or scanning the pages of Airbnb dreaming up the next family vacation.
The days are long but the years are short. It’s the anthem of mothers everywhere, isn’t it? Those long days that start at dawn, fueled by caffeine to meet the requests of your little ones, followed by rifling through recipe books for a dinner plan, interrupted by a dirty diaper or two, all humming along to the tune of Daniel Tiger. On and on and on it goes, like groundhog day, and then suddenly your baby is off to high school.
Are you crying yet? No? Just me? All of that aside, it takes a lot of energy and more than a cup of coffee in the morning. It takes a village! And… a comfortable pair of shoes. (You knew where I was going with this, didn’t you?) I love shoes that check the form and function boxes. These flats have serious cushioning material–almost what you’d find in a sneaker–making them totally suitable for running wherever your day takes you (running after energetic kids if you’re like me).
Add your favorite boyfriend jeans (I rotate between this pair and my black skinny jeans–over and over again!) and the perfect chambray shirt. Break up that denim on denim with some florals or a cozy cardigan and scarf, and call it a day.
These Total Motion Adelyn Ballet Flats are comfortable enough for Cider Hill, our favorite New England farm (think apple cider donuts dusted with cinnamon and sugar and all the pick-your-own apples you could ever want!), and cute enough for date night at your favorite restaurant. They’re comfortable enough to head to Boston to stroll down Charles Street and grab yourself a little something at Follain, known for its healthy beauty products. They’re also cute enough for girls night at Neptune Oyster, one of Boston’s famed North End restaurants.
My day in them? School drop off, a farm visit for some of our favorite milk and a visit to the goats, returning books to the library and taking more out (dinosaurs! Paw Patrol! And the story of how all the Marvel superheroes got their start! #Lifewithboys), lunch, playground, school pickup, groceries, and home for dinner. Phew. On to the next day in this year that’s flying by.
