Back To School Shopping

Back to school shoe shopping is not easy especially with fashion forward four-year olds.

Their father won’t be happy when he sees the Nordstrom bill, but his little ladies will enter “The Fours Room” next Tuesday with Twinkle Toes by Sketchers so blinding that I think I need shades.

It’s perfect timing, actually, since my Zeals have bitten the dust.

Before we left the mall (after making wishes in the fountain) we stopped at the sunglass store where I tried on a Red Ridinghood trifecta of Maui Jim’s; Baby Beach (too small), Cliff House (too big) and Sugar Beach (just right)!

What shoes are your kids wearing back to school? What sunglasses are on their mama’s?


Twinkle Toes = Happy Feet
Bling Bling.. they flash little lights! Is their teacher going to hate me?
Maui Jim Sugar Beach in Rootbeer. Did my research…good for running. They weigh only one ounce, are polarized, and shield-like enough to protect my sensitive eyeballs. Image from

  1. JUST LOOK AT THOSE BIG GIRLS! Hope the shoes are okay with pre-k, think once you are in BIG school they are a no – no. But What do I know. I WANT SOME! well maybe not really, but they sure are cute! Pour me another….

    1. I just ran to read the clothing rules… nothing about twinklers… just sneakers and no open toed shoes or crocs. It was the best I could do. They thought all the pretty mary janes were boring! I kept pushing them with no luck!

    1. I got a facebook message that Margaret has them, too! It’s going to be a very lively year, I think. See you soon!

    1. They are so light!!! I kind of worried that maybe they were too light and I’m not sure how great they’ll be at holding my hair back 🙂 but worth a try!
