Back to School Shopping
With two girls in our home, we have been obsessed with rainbows, glitter and sparkly things for longer than I can remember. This year I’m going back to school shopping for both girls because little sister is starting her first year of preschool. They are six years apart but have bonded over messy crafts and rainbow glitter. Imagine their excitement when we opened a package sent from KidsShoes to find matching Sam Edelman rainbow shoes and the cutest CHOOZEpacks, reversible backpacks.
Back to school shopping has been fun this season because I’ve been able to let both our daughters’ personalities shine. I did have a few specific items on my own list though because I’ve been loving KidsShoes on Instagram for months. They have the cutest collections and I honestly couldn’t wait to share this sweet surprise with my girls.
Rainbow Glitter & Combat Boots
These sisters are both excited for school to start and can’t wait to wear matching rainbow glitter shows on their first days. I love that my oldest daughter is following trends like wearing combat boots but still wants to wear the girly things she loves likes rainbow glitter and sparkly shoes.
My girls love so many different prints and most days they change their outfits, shoes and accessories multiple times. With CHOOZEpacks they don’t have to decide on just one pattern because the backpacks are reversible. The bags we received each have a side with circles and a side with hearts for versatility.
The Sam Edelman Felicia Toddler rainbow glitter flats are a fun take on the traditional mary janes. Little sister has already decided she will be wearing these shoes everyday because they are so sparkly and extra comfy.
The Sam Edelman POLLY Sophia CHUNKY combat boots lace up and have padding for a comfortable fit all day. The chunky glitter make these boots great for every season. While it’s especially warm in Arizona, my daughter is wearing them with skirts and shorts but they will also pair perfectly with her favorite leggings.
How to style combat boots for kids
Unlace the top holes of the combat boots and tie lower for an extra trendy edge.
Change the shoelaces to ribbons to add some girly flare.
Shorts & skirts
Wear combat boots with shorts and skirts in warm weather.
Pair combat boots with a frilly dress for a sweet feminine touch.
Wear your favorite combat boots with leggings for a perfect fall look.
In our home my daughters generally pick their own clothes and shoes to wear everyday. I don’t ask them to change unless we are going somewhere specific or their outfits are not weather appropriate. For almost an entire year little sister wore her favorite princess rain boots everywhere we went. Then as suddenly as she fell in love with her rain boots, she switched to wearing dinosaur flip flops daily. We also went through a short phase wearing only Zhu Zhu pet hamster slippers. Giving my daughters the ability to choose what they like to wear allows them to express their creativity and make every morning so much smoother. Now if I can just get little sister to agree to wear something other than dinosaur print dresses everyday we’ll be in good shape!
