Spring in Astoria with Timberland

Sponsored By Zappos.
I don't know about you, but to me, there's no better place than New York in the spring. There's just something about the bright new colors blooming across the city with temperatures on the rise that puts an extra pep in my step. It's the perfect time to spend hours wandering the city, grabbing a bite to eat al fresco and treating yourself to fresh blooms and perhaps an iconic mister softee (I'm a vanilla chocolate swirl kind of gal). While all the neighborhoods in the city easily stand on their own, there's just something about blazing the modern trail in my own neighborhood: Astoria. 

Naturally, proper footwear is necessary. You need something that treat your feet as you treat yourself to the days spent under the sun, browsing the fruit stands and sipping iced coffee (or if you're in Astoria, likely a frappe) going from avenue to avenue taking in the sights. I mean, you have to be comfortable, right? Especially with an enormous baby bump. So, when I got wind that Timberland isn't just about boots anymore I was 100% intrigued to try out one of the new styles, the Mayliss Oxford in White Full Grain. I mean, we all need a pair of white sneakers in our footwear lineup and these kind of knock it out of the park. Hello, slight platform, removable cushion sole and a super soft suede upper! The breath-able mesh liner doesn't hurt either, especially as the temperatures continue to rise and the weather goes from gorgeous to hot and humid. 

I grabbed mine from Zappos, scored one-day shipping, and wore them out the next day to help 'move along this pregnancy', if you get my drift. Usually I would dress them up with a flirty dress to enhance the feminine lines, but I stepped a little outside my norm and threw them on with cropped fringe denim and a striped top with a leather jacket topper and French basket (to fill as we made our rounds in the neighborhood). First up, United Brothers for fresh fruit and vegetables. Next, Spicy Noodles and Thai Coffee at Red Basil. And finally, hanging out on the stoop, people-watching before picking up the boys from school. In a nutshell.
