Meet My Solemate

Hey now, 

Hey now, 

This is what dreams are made of. Hey! Hey! 

The feels for Lizzie McGuire just got SO REAL

More than likely you've worn, seen, or heard about TOMS shoes. If you haven't you definitely need to check them out! In the past I've purchased their shoes from other retail stores like Nordstrom but recently I found their holy temple- totally by accident, too!

And so the story begins...

One day a long, long, time ago there lived a lad who ruled an entire kingdom and he was filthy rich. 

       A guy can dream, right? Let's try this again. 

In short, I found TOMS by exploring Chicago. TOMS only has five standalone shops so I was totally up for checking this store out. The shop is a fusion of a retail store and their TOMS Roasting Co. coffee shop.

Me when I walked in: "YOU MEAN I CAN SHOP AND BE IN A COFFEE SHOP AT THE SAME TIME?!"  *breathes heavily* 

Rather than me rambling on about why I'm upset that I can't marry a store, I'll let the pictures do the talking.

 For every cup of coffee you buy from TOMS, you provide a day's worth of clean water to someone in need. For every bag of coffee you purchase, someone gets clean drinking water for a week.

 I couldn't capture their whole mural outside, but this is an overview of TOMS' mission.

 The pair I have are the  Oxford Tan Chambray Brogues.  You know I'm wearing the hell out of these babies- they match everything. Plus, they are so comfortable I bet I could work out in them...me working out-  HAH.

 The shoes are off-white so they pretty much match just about everything.

I'm totally for companies that give back to the environment in some way. I basically smile and hand over my credit & debit cards. If you're interested in TOMS and how they give back to the community I definitely recommend checking them out. If you live close to one of their stores YOU HAVE to go in! 

 Peace Do0ds!
