friendly rooster | baby shoes + a giveaway

thank you, friendly rooster for sponsoring this post. as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own
i fell in love with friendly rooster the minute i started browsing their adorable selection. they also do a great job of featuring styles on instagram! all of the options are just the cutest- trust me. plus, shopping with a toddler can be quite tricky so i love online options. friendly rooster carries a lot of fabulous brands - you can view them here. one of my favorite brands is tip toey joey (how cute is that name?) they are made in brazil and it is actually very rare to find these in the united states. tip toey joey uses a very hands-on approach with their production; everything is overseen by the creators of the brand to make sure they uphold to standards of quality, are environmentally responsible, style sensibility, etc. 

check out our photo shoot with kelly bain photography below, along with some of my favorite walking shoes for both little girls and boys, and most of all, a huge giveaway!
how perfect are these for the warmer months ahead? they can be both casual or dressy
what i love most: for every new pair purchased, they donate a pair to a child in need of walking shoes
parks is- over the moon- happy about his new baby boy walking shoes
view his cute pair here
i have been told that the bond between a mom and a son is very special (but i really had no idea.) 
baby boy-- your smile lights up my heart + spirit ... every time.
we are also so thankful for a fun shoot with kelly bain photography at a local farmer's market last week (you may have seen the -behind the scenes- on instagram) kelly was just the sweetest to work with and had the photos edited and back to me in less than twenty-four hours. i felt like i already knew her (through years of social media love) but meeting up in person was just the best. thank you so much for these photos- we are sure to cherish them always.

parks has (super) chubby feet (and i love them- lots) but these shoes were perfect... the elastic on the sides made them easy to get on and off and they appear to be very comfortable for him. 

i also really loved some of their 'fun stuff' on their site like backpacks, tights, socks, and hats
i am so appreciative for the opportunity to collaborate with both of these businesses. 
it was a lot of fun and we plan to buy friendly rooster shoes for years to come
