As a twin mom, I’m constantly buying double of everything. When it comes to clothes, buying one item in boy’s style and one in girl’s style, can add up. Now, I look for anything unisex for them to share. I wanted to tell a quick story about how I found the perfect shoes for our little ones-that they both can wear!
When the twins were infants, Bailee was gifted a pair of the gold metallic moccasins from her Grandma (an avid Nordstrom shopper with quite fashionable taste). These shoes ended up being our go-to and favorite, because Bailee was a first time walker, and she easily moved around in them. Not only this, but the Freshly Picked moccasins stayed on her feet, they held together really well, were stretchy, and she was able to wear them for months-Whether you’re a mom of same-sex twins, a mom of boy-girl twins or a mom, period, I’m sure you can understand how frustrating it can be when you buy shoes or clothing, your child wears it once, and has already grown out of it!
Here’s a few blast from the past photos of Bailee in her Moccs:
I absolutely love these shoes, because you can tell how comfortable they are. And, I think it’s important for infants and toddlers to be comfortable, especially when they’re learning how to walk. I also don’t think they have to wear socks with them, which is great when you’re on the fly and can’t find a sock mate!
Just to show off how these shoes were perfect for boys or girls, we took some special pictures (courtesy of daddy!). Below, Grayson is pictured wearing the bright red “Fire Engine” moccasins, and Bailee is wearing the Classic Red Leather moccasins, in honor of Valentine’s Day!

See how they look good on both kiddos??
Also, these kids love these shoes so much, they literally cried when we took them off.
While I do try to buy as many neutral shoes as possible, sometimes I can’t help myself (#Shopaholic)! Which is great, because Freshly Picked also has different styles tailored towards either gender. Including:
Couldn’t you see our diva, Bailee rocking and loving these Leopard print boots?!
And Moccasins with cute little bows (Bow Moccs)!
While some of these are tailored to specific genders, I still think a lot of the styles are still gender neutral, and I definitely wouldn’t mind either kiddo in them!
Fun facts about Freshly Picked:
1. Freshly Picked is also sold at Nordstrom (one of my favorite retailers!).
2. Freshly Picked was on Shark Tank (one of our favorite shows!).
