Win My Shoes: $500 ECCO shoe giveaway!


When you’re a mum, there are a lot of things ready to come between you and a rockin’ outfit:

  • Sleep deprivation
  • A wardrobe full of clothes that no longer fit your changed body shape
  • A drop in confidence because of your body shape
  • Less time to get ready
  • Less time to shop
  • Less money to shop with
  • The practicality you need when wrangling kids.

Any one of them are challenging enough. But put them all together and you’re looking at one mother of a fashion dilemma.

Yet, as we’ve discovered, by sharing our tips and ideas with one another on Fox in Flats, it becomes that much easier to navigate motherhood in style.

And for me, it all starts with shoes.

When I became a mum, my biggest challenge was adjusting to a world where I didn’t wear heels on a daily basis.

“It’s hard to swing high in heels!”


Yup, I was one of those women who wore heels to work every day. Higher heels out at night. And at either a weekend BBQ with friends or a trip to the grocery store, I’d be wearing heels.

I did also have a pair of flip-flops that I saved for the beach, a pair of slippers for home, and a pair of trainers, but that was it.

Nowadays I’m hitting the beach with piles of supplies, and these ECCO thongs $169.

I insisted on wearing my heels throughout my first pregnancy. I finally stopped at 8 1/2 months when I couldn’t get out of bed after traversing the steps of the Sydney Opera House the day before, in heels to attend a farewell lunch with my work colleagues.

So it was with a wry smile and a sheepish nod that I gratefully accepted the farewell gift these work friends gave me just before I stepped into the world of motherhood: a gift card for a shoe store that mostly sold flats.

Since then, I’ve become a convert – and advocate – for wearing comfortable shoes on a daily basis.

Last year, I discovered ECCO shoes, and was thrilled to find a brand that crafts shoes which are comfortable and practical enough for me to wear all day when I’m mucking in with the kids, yet are also stylish. So I feel like there’s a touch of polish to my outfit whenever I wear them – even if that outfit is just some denim cut-offs and an old shirt.

My work colleagues were thrilled to present me with that gift voucher just before I embarked on this crazy little thing called Motherhood. Now, I’m thrilled to be offering a similar opportunity to the readers of Fox in Flats (albeit, the value of this gift card is much, much higher):
