You guys probably know by now that Zappos is one of my most frequented online retailers. When it comes to bags, shoes, and sunglasses specifically, they’re absolutely my go-to. Their selection of brands is incredible, their prices are good, and their service is next to none. Free 1 day shipping, free returns…they can do no wrong.

So I’m excited to introduce to you a new line at Zappos that made me fall even more in love with them. It’s called Zappos Adaptive: Functional and Fashionable Products to Make Life Easier, and it’s an entire line of clothing specifically designed for people with special needs, whether that’s physical limitations, sensory issues, or really anything else.

They have items that are tag-less, made of special materials, items with pull-on waistbands and shoes, and so much more that makes getting dressed less of a struggle or less of a fight. You can see more about the story in this video, and I love how the president of this line, Independence Clothing, talks about how they’re the first major retailer to specifically address the needs of the millions of people who have these special needs.

I think most, if not all, of us have someone they know who could benefit from this line. If you do, share this with them! Having it so easily accessible with Zappos’ quick and easy ordering and shipping will be such a game changer and blessing for so many. I’m so proud to work with brands who are making a difference!

About this outfit, these are some of my favorite basics that I’ve found at Zappos. I have two pairs of these jeans and wear them all the time, I’m obsessed with these pretty little flats for summer, and I want to carry this straw tote every day with every single summer outfit. Also this is my favorite line of low priced sunglasses, and these ones are so fun for summer!

    My daughter wears orthodic leg braces and when I found out about this a few days ago I was so excited! It’s so hard to find shoes that fit her braces, so I love that Zappos has orthodic friendly options all listed in one place!
