Well ladies, the time has come...for back to school! The girls start tomorrow and I just can't believe summer vacation is already over. Since coming back from vacation last week it has been non-stop getting ready for school mode! There is so much to do to prepare: buying all the supplies on the teachers' lists, buying new uniforms, new backpacks and lunch bags, new shoes. Not to mention organizing and cleaning around the house so we are ready for the onslaught of forms, papers and school work about to start coming in! It seems never-ending!
With the girls starting second and fourth grade, I have really learned what works well for us as far as where to shop for back to school. Target crosses off most supplies and backpacks, our local uniform shop for fresh uniform shirts and skirts, and Payless Shoesource for their new shoes! The girls get really excited for their new shoes every year, I think mainly because it is one of the only ways to give some personality to their uniform! The only requirement from the school is that they be athletic shoes, and Payless has a great selection of styles and tons of colors that cater to both girls' personal preferences.
Natalie, my nine year old, is super sporty and likes a true athletic look to her shoes. She picked the Champion Blast Runner in coral (she loves the blue detailing too). Kara, my seven year old, is a girly girl, and loves cute prints and colors. She picked the Champion Gusto Runner in berry leopard. There are sixteen color choices for this particular shoe. Sixteen!
I really appreciate Payless' wide selection of shoes, as well as their affordability. Everything adds up quick when it comes to back to school, so it is important to shop smart! I can always count on Payless for fashionable, affordable shoes for the whole family.
The girls begged me for a blog cameo, so their wish is my command. Look at these cute little goofballs! The poses with them in the shoes are all their own, by the way. I think they have a future in shoe modeling!
