Top Ten Back to School Shoe Styles for Girls
# 1. Cientas Mary-Jane Sneaker – Keeping with the trends and not even knowing it, my girls love a little glitter and since I keep it minimal on their clothing, I often let the accessories add some tasteful sparkle! I picked these as #1 because I’ve had these for my girls for several years now and we’ve ordered them again for September. They look cute with their entire casual wardrobe, have the rubber sole that I feel most comfortable sending the kids to school in, and the $36 price point is perfect! I find Cientas metallic canvas colors hold up the longest and also add that sparkle that my girls love! ($36.00)
#2. Peekkids ‘Calia’ flat – a ballet flat that actual stays on! Unlike some of the other adorable little girl ballet flats that we have had, the Calia flat is comfortable and my girls are not walking right out of the back. The younger version has an elastic strap. ($59.95)
#3. Toms Silver Tiny TOMS Glitters – The ‘One For One’ charitable program is what most excites me about the Toms brand. As you know, giving back is woven into the fabric of the Pennymeade brand. This slip-on moccasin looks great with jeans on any member of family and of course, my girls go right for the silver sparkle. ($36.00)
#4. Superga – I like several of the Superga styles for my girls but thought these were adorable and unique. The style featured below is on sale now, but if the size you need isn’t available, check out the Lamej or the Jvel Classic styles. ($45.00)
#5. Michael by Michael Kors 'Rover Bow' Flat – these adorable elastic-back ballet flats remind me of my Prada women’s bow flats that I adore! ($48.95)
#6. Joyfolie ‘Rosie’ in Bracken – I’ve loved a bunch of the Joyfolie styles since I found the brand while surfing Pinterest last year. The new ‘Rosie’ style is a cute, little-girl spin on the adult smoking slipper trend. They even have some in matching mommy sizes. The neutral colors go with everything. I hope they are comfortable because I am ordering them soon! ($62.00)
#7. Laura Ashley Polka Dot Ballerina Flat - I haven't seen this brand in a while, but it brings back fond memories of my childhood years in England. I came across these bow flats on the Nordstrom site and thought they were just darling. They look like a younger version of the Ferragamo flat and will also pair well with the Pennymeade leggings and girls tunic coming soon. The flowers on the sole are a cute touch. ($38.95)
#8. Morgan and Milo ‘Avril’ Mary Jane – the girlish pink color and flower applique dress up this comfortable fall tweed fabric sneaker. ($44.00)
#9. Zara Animal Print Leather Slip-on – I’m not a big fan of animal print on little girls but I’m having a hard time resisting these adorable leopard flats. I think they can be tastefully styled with some cute leggings and a camel colored sweater. ($49.90)
#10. Ralph Lauren Chandler EZ Sneaker – This durable, canvas velcro closure sneaker has been another go-to for my girls. This season it is done in a deep purple - a beautiful fall color that will be popular with the little princess. I'm so grateful for the velcro when we are trying to get out the door on busy school mornings --- even the youngest children can get themselves ready to roll. Also a great price point! ($30.00)
