It’s safe to say that we are seeing trends from the 90’s that are making a solid come back. Some of these, I can get on board with. Berry lips? Yes please! Doc Martins? Yep, loved mine. The denim jacket? It’s always a winner in my book. Flannel? Okay, perhaps in a very non-Kurt Cobain, My So Called Life kind of way. Scrunchies and massive platform shoes? I think I’ll pass on those two.
But seriously, the trend I think I’m most excited about is the return of the jellies! I loved jellies as a kid. They were sparkly, could go with almost anything, and if they got dirty, you could just rinse them off in the hose. They did, however, have an odd plastic smell to them, if you wore them all day, your feet would be killing you, and every time you took them off, there was this weird layer of sweat and dirt all over your feet.
This fall, City Moms Blog Network got together for our annual Sister Site Conference. We are often introduced to brands that moms need to know about through partnerships at this conference. Hands down, my favorite product that we received are my jellies….actually, Mox Shoes to be exact. After owning these shoes for six months, they are quickly becoming one of my favorites in my closet. And guess what? They’re even BETTER than the jellies of our childhood!! (Keep reading for an exclusive offer from Mox Shoes!)
The New & Improved "Jellies"
These are like sophisticated jellies, without all of the negatives of those we wore back in the 80’s and 90’s. Coming in colors like latte, gold, coral, and platinum, you can find a color that will go with almost everything in your closet. Bonus, they are comfortable – like, oddly comfortable for a shoe that’s so lightweight. Unlike the shoes we grew up in, Mox are rubber. The floor of the shoes is like a giant cushion and they do not leave your feet with that weird sweat/dirt combo.
But just like the shoes of our childhood, a few come with a little sparkle….but grown up, fashionable sparkle that is, not like My Little Pony sparkle. Because really, what adult needs to look like My Little Pony? You can rinse them off in the hose or sink if they get dirty because as a mom, there’s no telling what you’ll traipse through on an outing with your kids. And most importantly, they go with just about everything. Pair Mox with your Lulu gear to head to yoga. Throw on your sassy one piece and a cute poncho with your Mox to take you to the pool. Grab your boyfriend jeans and cute top with a cardigan and your Mox for the PTO meeting. For lunch with your girlfriends, put on a cute dress with your Mox. And for a night out on the town, you can dress them up with black pants and a sexy top.
Go Get Some!
I might or might not own a few colors but at $39.99/each, it’s totally justifiable, amiright??? Grab yourself a pair. I promise you can’t go wrong!
