best of the nest | freshly picked

Happy Friday!! This has felt like the longest week ever so we are all extra thankful the weekend is here! We host a small group in our home one Friday a month and we have that tonight so Olivia and I have plans to make 7-layer bars this afternoon before nap time, one of my forever favorite treats!

I've shared my love of Freshly Picked moccasins many times in the past because it has become a tried + true brand for our family over the last several years. Olivia was just a few months old when she wore her first pair and since then we have been totally hooked. The quality, craftsmanship and durability of Freshly Picked moccasins is unmatched. I have been able to save many of Olivia's old pairs for Poppy and they are still in such great shape that our littlest lady will wear them as well. Of course it's always fun to add new pairs to the girls' collection and I love their Platinum moccasins as the perfect everyday staple since it matches everything, especially as we move into Spring! 

When Olivia was born in 2013, Freshly Picked hadn't yet released their crib moccasins (now called The First Pair), which are Size 0 and perfect for newborns & those tiny baby feet. Poppy wore an heirloom blush and gold pair as her first shoes, which has now become a special keepsake that sits on a shelf in her nursery. A platinum pair is waiting in my hospital bag for our new baby girl and every time I see them I still get weak in the knees that she will have feet small enough to fit them, especially when I look at Penelope and Olivia and how much they have grown and changed since we first brought them home from the hospital.

A few of our favorite things about Freshly Picked...
one | They stay on a baby's feet. This is definitely #1 on my list because it seems every other shoe out there made for babies and toddlers so easily falls off. Even as much determination as Poppy has, she can't get them off her feet when I'm not looking. And I love that!

two | They are so well made. Kids wear shoes out like nobody's business but our FP moccasins have stayed in such great condition through all the girls' adventures. The colors haven't faded, leather hasn't peeled off and the elastic around the ankle stays strong and secure no matter how much it has been stretched.

three | The style. This one goes without saying but I love all the options that Freshly Picked offers in terms of soft sole moccasin style. I tend to stick with the neutrals and metallics and especially love Gold, Rose Gold,  and Weathered Brown (the perfect gender neutral mocc!). 

four | The fit. I can't speak directly from experience since FP doesn't actually make moccasins in my size, but I love how comfortable the soft sole moccs seem on my girls. Their feet are never being restricted when worn (unlike many hard soled infant shoes) and they are easy to get on and off without much effort. They can be worn with or without socks and are just as comfy worn around the house as they are when we're out and about. Penelope never even notices she is wearing shoes when she's in FP, which makes me think they must be pretty darn comfortable!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
