To Code: Toms and Dresses, It's a No, No!
July's To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Lady (better late than never)
TOMS eco-friendly, a pair of shoes for shoe-less children for every pair bought have made them a popular choice of footwear over the past few years. Across the board, hipsters, kids, doctors, moms, and dads are all rocking a pair of these minimalist shoes. I'm going to make this simple, TOMS are OK in my book, although I can't say you'll catch me in a pair anytime soon. HOWEVER, I've seen far too many ladies of all ages wearing their TOMS with skirts and dresses.
If you want to look like a ballerina in your pointe shoes then by all means, wear your TOMS in every outfit you own. Otherwise, put on a pair of flats or pumps and head out on the town when in skirts or dresses; and wear your Classic TOMS with your favorite jeans or shorts and keep it at that. Same rules should apply to men as well.
UPDATE: Toms Shoes has some wedges and actual ballet flats in their line up since my original post. I've seen them in store and on a few people and will promote ladies to where these options however they please. My original statement stands though on the classic TOMS.
