Spring 2016 Tastemakers: Mommy Shorts

Spring 2016 Tastemakers: Mommy Shorts

Ilana, the stylish chick behind Mommy Shorts, is a downtown Manhattan-chic mom of two. And as an NYC native, it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about city life, and what how it influences footwear choices.

To put the comfort of Børn to the test, Ilana picked her favorite styles from our Spring 2016 collection and gave each pair the city livin’ treatment. That’s to say, she wore four styles around the city to see if she could still attest to their comfort by the end of the day.

Her enthusiasm for the brand is evident in a Mommy Shorts post, “When All Else Fails, Post a ‘Selfeet.’” Ilana took “selfeet” (selfies for the feet) while wearing her four fav Børn styles: the CINDIE heel, BEVI wedge, TAMI ballet flat, and RICHIE slip-on sneaker.

Ilana paired the CINDIE heel with loose-fitted maroon pants, a black top, and a black leather jacket. As a whole, her outfit was casual but classy. The heel elevates the outfit without coming across as too dressy.

Ilana broke for a mid-day outfit change and slipped into our BEVI wedge. Nothing goes so well with your favorite pair of skinny jeans than an easy wedge. Look how relaxed she looks in the picture below. The beautiful taupe leather lets her spring-ready pedicure pop.

A third outfit change ushered in a professional-cool look, as seen below. This is the kind of outfit we want to spend our work days in: A black and white striped boatneck blouse, black slacks, and a pop of red on her feet in the form of our RICHIE sneaker in “kiss” red leather (awww).

The easy styling and casualness of the slip-on sneak allow her to effortlessly chill on the couch. There’s no way she’d get away with that pose in heels. Shop the sneak in four leathers; red, tan, dark brown and black.

Her last outfit of the day is comfortable and functional. She wears our quintessential ballet flat, TAMI, with flared denim and a simple blouse. TAMI is built with an unbelievably comfortable insole and a sturdy outsole. Even better, it’s available in any color you’d want; black, crema metallic (gold), tan, cuoio (light tan), papavero (red), and castoro (taupe).
