It’s time for back to school shopping and I’ve been agonizing over what my oldest is going to wear this coming school year. Her school has a dress code, and for a girl who prefers to dress like Snow White every day of the year, sticking to the code is going to be a challenge.
She refuses to wear pants, which is fine, because I can totally wrestle some leggings or tights under her dresses and skirts. The biggest hurdle I am facing with the back to school shopping has to do with the shoes. Because right now, her shoes of choice are a pair of clear Cinderella high heel jellies that light now. I’m sure it goes without saying, but they are a major infringement on the dress code.
The only “normal” shoes she will tolerate are her beloved pair of pink Crocs. I know, it’s hard to believe that my petite fashionista has a thing for Crocs, but she love them. Can you blame her? They are pretty comfy.
I’m sure many of you seasoned mothers know this already, but the traditional-style Crocs aren’t approved by most schools because they are open in the back. Also, some of the most-loved styles are also open in the toe, which doesn’t follow most school’s dress codes either.
What’s a mom of a Croc-loving kid to do?
Well, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Crocs has a new Back to School line of shoes. And when I saw these, I have to admit that my heart skipped a beat:
Aren’t they cute? I even like the boys’ stuff enough to think about going for a third baby. Ok- not really, but the new styles are really cool.
This is just a sampling of the 13 new styles that Crocs has for boys and girls ages K-8. The best part is, the Crocs Back to School kids’ line are all school-approved on the outside (they are close-toed AND close-heeled), but with the same comfort on the inside.
