Butler Boot for kids review Pamela Pekerman

The Butler Boot: 3-in-1 Kids Boots for All Seasons

Hey Mamas,

It’s Friday, and while for many of us, the weekends aren’t too much of a departure from our typical Monday to Friday mama hustle, I still always feel a bit gitty when Friday afternoon rolls around.

Even the crazy rain isn’t going to stop me and my munchkins from splashing about in style, especially, now that their new Butler Boots arrived.

Designed to make mom’s life easier – THANK YOU we appreciate all the extra help! – the innovative rain boots actually do more than just protect your kiddos feet from the rain.

Dubbed the “whatever the weather” shoe, the Butler boot has a 3-in-1 design allowing your kids to wear them in multiple situations from snow, to rain, to sunny days.

The outer boot is made from one sleek mold without any stitching or glue, which means to leaky seams. Waterproof winner for when you’re pretending you’re Peppa Pig, jumping in moody puddles.

That shell is also super lightweight, and ideal for early spring time or fall.

There’s also an inner, breathable slipper booties that gives extra warmth during winter and snow season. But, the kids will not sweat thanks to moisture wick material.

That same slipper can be worn on it’s own, which is great for kids that are in daycare and can take off their outer shell. Or, if you’re heading over for a play date, no need to send slippers. (Yes, we are a no-walking-without-slippers family! #HouseRules )

Summing up time-saving, money-saving awesomeness of the Butler Boot

  • A Shoe for all 4 seasons (does anyone else hear the Grease song in their head? …. A Girl for All Season)
  • Outer boot is waterproof
  • The easy on, easy off design means that toddlers can easily put the boot on by themselves (more free time for mom… yes, drink your collagen latte pretty lady)
  • Slipper liner can be worn as cozy slipper
  • Outer boot and inner slipper have slip resistant sole
  • Outer boot can slip over some slim sneakers, making it easy for older kids to keep sneakers/shoes on in school, and slip on outer boot when heading back home.
  • Super lightweight (not always the case with rain boots)
  • Non-toxic and environmentally-friendly material

Sizing: size up, especially if you want to slip in your own sneakers into the outer boot.

Gilt x Sam Edelman Shoes Spring 2017 Shoe Launch

Hey Mamas,

Who’s ready for comfy-style shoes, and giving those toes their day in the sun?

For Spring/Summer 2017, Gilt teamed up with Sam Edelman to develop a line of exclusive footwear styles that is launching tomorrow, Thursday, April 6.

Get ready to click and buy from this fun and festive assortment of flats, block heels, low espadrilles and coordinating bags.

I previewed the Gilt x Sam Edelman exclusive collection, this morning (whilst enjoying a mani – #LoveMyJob ) and can’t wait to wear the bright pops of pink, red and denim blue. If you’re in for embroidery, pom-poms and a dash of St. Tropez flair, this collection is for you.

Best of all, the styles, which range in price from $70-$120, are super comfortable. From walks in the park with the kids, to a full day of work in the city, followed by night cap with the hubby, I think you’ll find lots of great options for your busy, stylish life.
