Identical twin boys-they are the same but different in many ways. I can tell them apart, but many people cannot, including their teachers. Matters made worse when I dress them alike. Opps.
But, that is a perk of having twins- right? The cuteness factor doubles when dressed alike. Alas, I needed a surefire way to tell them apart with a quick glance, even when dressed alike. Something that could help define them daily.
It came down to shoes. In different colors. Problem solved, but not as easily as it sounds.
My wish list for a school shoe is simple. My search isn’t always so.
Shoes need to velcro
Shoes need to be sporty
Shoes need to come in toddler sizes
Shoes need to come in multiple ( or at least 2) colors
After narrowing it down and down and down…my search led me to one brand.
This comfortable, easy to get on (by themselves), big kid-looking athletic shoe, in so many fun colors, is the perfect choice for us.
Blue and green again for the win.
Moms get new shoes for the school year too, right? Of course right.
It would be remiss if I didn’t mention my own favorites for back to school. Booties, athletic shoes and slip ons are top contenders for my look this fall.
My wish list is not nearly as simple as the one for my children. There are just too many to choose from to narrow down selection to a single pair or brand. This season, I am drawn to clean lines and a low heal, imperative for running around town with kids.
I’ll be bopping around town, living the Bene Life in some of these beauties this year. DSW is my spot for great deals and styles.
