It’s that time of year again when the kiddos return back to school. Yesterday my daughter started her first day of 2nd grade… man, where did the time go!?
Per usual, we did some back to school shopping to prepare for the school year. Over anything else, her favorite part of back to school shopping is getting new shoes. Last year, I got her some high-top shoes and she has been obsessed with them ever since, so it was no surprise that she would want a new pair of high-tops for this school year. Of course they had to be pink, her favorite color. Converse sneakers are a family favorite and a timeless classic that never goes out of style.
For this look, we paired her new shoes with a small polka dot print blouse and a large polka dot print skirt. To break up the prints a bit, we added a denim jacket, perfect for fall.
I may not be headed back to school like my daughter, but I have been doing some major fall shopping lately and one of the items on my list of things to get was a new pair of black and white kicks. Taking her to and from school and running errands with the kids is definitely more practical in tennis shoes. I have tons of workout shoes but I typically only wear those with my workout outfits. I wanted something that pulled my casual outfits together a little bit better.
These black and white mesh court Nike shoes were perfect. They are super comfy, I love the sleekness of them and the mesh detailing is an added bonus.
For my look, I paired my new black and white kicks with a typical casual outfit I wear often in the fall. A pair of black faux leather leggings, a white tee and a black faux leather moto jacket.
