One of the best parts about having two teenaged daughters is having shopping buddies. They both have great personal style that is obviously not inherited. They are good with prints and mixing things up. I’d wear monochromatic knits every day if it were up to me. I like comfort!
My younger daughter helps me pull together outfits when I have to dress up, and she always does a million times better for me than I do on my own. My girls push me into trying looks and accessories I’d never dream up, and I’m usually pretty pleased. Some suggestions, like the floral skinny jeans, were a bust, but I just think they wanted to see me try on floral skinny jeans. (It was like a flowery denim girdle.)
The downside to having two teens: we all wear the same shoe size. You may think, “Well, you’ve tripled your shoe wardrobe!” Nope–my shoes are much, much nicer than theirs. Unless I want to borrow a pair of sneakers decorated with Sharpie, I get the short end of the stick.
To wit, Earth Footwear sent me a pair of really cute flats from their new spring collection. They’re called “Butterfly” and are a shade of pink called Red Plum. These flats are suede outside and leather inside. The little bows on the toe are perforated leather, one of the hottest styles of the season.
The footbed is super cushy. When my daughter tried on the shoes, she said, “It’s like walking on angel fat!” Which is silly because there’s no fat in Heaven.
I’ve had my eye on shoes from Earth (or their sister brand Earthie), for a while now. I’ve even gone to a local high-end shoe store to try on gorgeous booties from these brands. I find the line to be good quality and comfortable in the extreme. It’s rare to fine shoes that are super-comfortable and still stylish.
So, my girls have laid claim to my new spring ballet flats, and I’m okay with it. By house rules, I get first claim on “our” shoes.

These shoes sound perfect for Kinsey. And in pink too. She has feet issues so these might work!
I want a pair of their sandals NOW!
