Best Shoes For Stay At Home Moms
If you know me, then you know I have an obsession with Birkenstock shoes. I love them, my feet love them and they can pair with just about anything.
Hands down, the best shoes for stay-at-home moms are Birkenstock, but I will also list a few other options.

Why are these a good choice for stay-at-home moms on the move? Because they are non-slip with a foam sole, which would be comforting for us mamas always on our feet.
