There’s nothing like a brand new pair of Keds to put a spring in my step! The clean, cool, classically styled original Keds Champion has been my go-to since the first day of First Grade when I chose a bold red pair to match my back-to-school outfit along with the red yarn ribbons I tied on my ponytails. Even way back then, I always danced to the beat of my own drum and chose what I wanted to wear and how I wanted to wear it.
Did you know that Keds has been dedicated to putting ladies first for more than 100 years? Keds has been outfitting fashion icons since 1916 including Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O and Marilyn Monroe plus has appeared in numerous classic dance scenes in films like Dirty Dancing. I love the Keds philosophy and commitment to empowering women like me who decide to follow their own path and redefine what it means to be a lady today.
Since I’m always on the go I end up doing the majority of my shopping online and Zappos.com is a favorite site because of the Zappos promise of fast, free shipping, a 365-day return policy, and world class customer service that fits in perfectly with a busy lifestyle. I ordered these perfect red Keds from Zappos and I’m always amazed by their great selection and speedy delivery!
Drumming is one of the those important things that I make time for each week; a chance to do something fun and challenging that’s just for me and a great way to balance out all of my home, family and work responsibilities. Spending time in the studio with my amazing drum teacher Matt to improve my skills and start learning to play the Conga and Djembe drums is one of the ways that I define what it means to blaze my own trail and embrace what it means to be a lady today.
