One thing about living in the Midwest that can get SUPER annoying is that your winter footwear isn’t always fashionable. Most times you have to choose function over fashion. I tend to always choose comfort or function. I have been a mom for over 19 years and I do tend to fall into a slump when it comes to my footwear and clothes. The main reason for that is I am very particular about what I wear. Most of the clothes or shoes I want to wear will not stand up to a Illinois winter. When Rhea footwear approached me about reviewing their product line I checked out their website and immediately fell in love with their Daphne Black Bootie.
