The kids started school last week which means we had to ditch the flip flops for closed toe shoes; for school anyway.  A few weeks ago we bought the kids new sneakers (or do you call them tennis shoes? gym shoes? running shoes?  I think it’s a regional thing, but my husband makes fun of me… whatever you call them) and some Natives.  I knew Dylan would likely wear his Nike’s everyday but was hoping Lexi would switch it up a little.  So far, all she wants to wear are her black and hot pink Nikes.  I have nothing against a comfortable sneaker, but I not so secretly hope I can lure her into some other options before too long.  She’s always liked shoes so hopefully this won’t be too hard.  Here are a few completely school appropriate closed toe shoes and boots I am loving for Lexi for fall and winter.Mini Style: shoes for fall

  1. Old Navy had either the same boots or very similar last year and they sold out before I bought a pair. I love Old Navy shoes for Lexi.  They are always have the cutest styles and you can’t beat the price.  If they take a beating on the playground, I don’t feel too bad about it.
  2. I’ve had my eye on these gold ballet flats for a long time.  I think she would love them because they are similar to her ballet shoes for dance but she can wear them outside.  They would be perfect with some of our favorite dresses and rompers now and jeans later into the fall.  I hope she loves these as much as I do.
  3. Another shoe Old Navy either brought back or released it’s twin sister this year; T-Strap Mary Jane’s.  I saw these enough around Instagram last year to give them a second thought this year.  With dresses and knee high’s I think I can get on board.
  4. Like everyone else, I love these Adidas shoes.  I’m pretty sure I had some back in middle school or high school and kind of want a pair myself.  Maybe if we twin, she will be into them?
  5. I’ve been lusting after these boots since I first saw them last fall.  I love them with dresses and think they would be equally cute with leggings or skinny jeans too.

And a few others we just can’t get enough of….

These rain boots are super cute for a pop of color to any outfit.  Lex loved wearing her pink boots even when it wasn’t raining – which is a good thing since it hardly ever rains here.  We’ve had a very similar version of these black boots the last two years and they aren’t heavy so I don’t have to worry about her tripping and falling and held up really well.  I also love Converse, they just look so good with just about anything.  If you haven’t tried them with these striped knee highs, you’re missing out.

I really love these shoes for Dylan, but will probably wait until it’s cool enough for jeans.  I need to keep an eye out for some dressier shoes for him as well.  If you see anything for boys you love, let me know.
