I am a wife and mother that is passionate about sharing content that helps us each live a beautiful and virtuous life. As an etiquette instructor, I love to seek out the beautiful things that surround us. You can often find me making a meal with my husband, building LEGOs with my son, and reading a good book - all in a beautiful dress! Thank you for being a part of this community, I am so happy you are here!

Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Thank you, Nisolo, for sponsoring this post!

I’ve loved working with Nisolo in the past and am so honored to be collaborating with them again! Their footwear is beautiful and impeccably made, all while using sustainable products. Something that is so inspiring about this company is how well it treats its workers. You can read about it HERE, but I can’t press publish on this post without mentioning how impressed I am that they are so transparent about their wages and supply chain.

They sent two products I’ve had my eye on for awhile! These Huarache Sandals in Desert Rose are the most comfortable flats. It was difficult to choose a color because they are all so stunning! There is ZERO break-in time for these shoes. They are made out of the softest leather, breathable, and versatile enough to be dressed up or down! They are pretty much all you see on my feet in my IG posts (here, here, and here!) since their arrival!

The second product they sent was their Talia Braided Belt in Natural Vachetta. I have wanted this belt for YEARS and was so excited to see it in the package! It is even more beautiful in person. I love that the neutral color will go with any outfit.

I’m so proud of this company that holds such high ethical standards. I love seeing them grow and the range of their products with it, too! From sneakers, to jewelry, to bags, and belts – I can’t wait to see what designs they come up with next! When you purchase from them, know you are supporting one of the most transparent companies in the fashion industry!

Here are three ways I styled my Nisolo Huaraches and Belt:
