Freshly Picked Review and Giveaway

When I turned 18, packed all of my stuff, and moved away, my dad helped me lug my 3 suitcases of shoes to college. That Christmas, he bought me a sweatshirt that said, 'will work for shoes.'

Olivia was born with the same problem. I believe she had 8 pairs of shoes prior to her arrival. Dan likes to blame me, but it's Olivia. Swear. Girl likes her shoes!

At seven months old, she started pulling up and 'walking' around everywhere. I don't think she has sat down since. (She also gets this from me. Sorry, Dan). Chick even likes to take a bottle standing up. Pretty quickly, we had to start the process of looking for 'practical' shoes - especially once they were required for daycare.

Olivia's doctor recommends soft soled shoes for as long as possible. They help her feet grow correctly, and are easier for unstable walkers to grip with their toes. 

Enter, Freshly Picked moccasins.


You have undoubtedly seen them on Olivia, as she wears them every single day. You might have also seen them on the Kardashians and other celeb babies, because they are that awesome. Olivia is so trendy.

They are soft soled shoes, made of incredibly soft, high quality leather. The hidden elastic around the ankle makes them easy for parents to put on (even Dan will dress her - that's saying a lot!) and it keeps them on her feet (which, in the world of infant shoes, is huge!).


But the best part? They are toddler proof. Olivia has worn the same pair every day for the past four months, and they have held up so well.




These have been kicked, and stepped on. Dragged along 100 degree concrete and through the dirt. Splashed in puddles and carried away by the family dog. They have protected her feet through all of those miles, and barely look worn. 

Except for the sweet little footprints on the bottom.


I chose Platinum because Dan could put these with absolutely anything in her closet, and they would match. Also, they match my Jack Rogers.


BUT, since the obsession, we have purchased a few more colors: birch, neon pink, chrome, and blush.


Now for the really exciting news? Freshly Picked is offering one of you a pair in your choice of size and color. Nothing is off limits. Not even the new fall colors that dropped yesterday. I am dying over 'oui oui.' 

These make such a generous baby shower gift, first birthday present, christmas present, etc.

Fine print? Contest runs this week, and the winner will be picked on Thursday, October 2nd. The winner will have 24 hours to claim his / her prize or another winner will be chosen. Valid to US residents only. You cannot have won another Freshly Picked giveaway in the last 60 days.

Good luck!

*Olivia received her platinum pair in exchange for review - although the obsession with Freshly Picked started much earlier.
