a story about shoes

I'm just gonna be honest here. I don't really like crocs. In fact, I would even go so far as to say I think they're ugly. Sorry if you have some, I still like you, they're just not for me.

With that said, when B told me he wanted to buy baby some I said no. We all walked down to the store and tried them on her, and I changed my mind. I think she can make anything look cute.

Plus we got them from a little place called the dollar store, and a girl can never have too many shoes.

I agree completely!! Crocs are not cute, UNLESS they're on a baby :)

I think crocs are adorable on little feet! And, actually, crocs are pretty much the only shoes my girls wear...here's why: they are totally washable, they can get wet and dry off in seconds, they can get muddy and no biggie at all, they are super easy to get on and off (great for when they're learning to be independent), and you can throw them in the top rack of the dishwasher and they come out looking and smelling brand new!!!

Hee hee . . . Olivia looks super sweet in her tiny pink crocs!

I like what your friend Mandy said . . . I totally agree! We havn't had many pairs of crocs, but I think they are the lowest maintenance shoes EVER! (AND, they also protect toes -- which flip flops and sandals can't do ;)

It's only been a week since I last saw Olivia, but once again, I'm sure she's grown! I love her little crocs - so cute on those tiny feet!

Tare, I'm like you- I don't really love the way crocs look but oddly enough my kids DO! and like others have said-low maintenance. Plus - what doesn't look good on Olivia- really?

Such cute crocs I have to admit I have a pair just like O's. Her and I can be twinners.
I totally hated them at first, but Scottie's family is super into them so I got a pair to fit in and now I adore them!

Take it back..... They're my clinic shoes! Haha I just hate tying my laces that's all. Prob won't talk to you much at school now. Thanks taryn hahaha

taryn said...

Hahaha! Megs you crack me up! I totally understand not wanting to tie your shoe laces. I'll be honest, I have some ugly clogs for my clinic shoes too. Well, you had me over for lunch today so hopefully you don't hate me too much!

I can't believe how big that girlie is getting! It was so fun to get to see you guys last week. I'm missing family again.

I think Crocs are awful unless worn by cute kiddos. I just bought Will 2 pair yesterday and the new Crocs have come a long way from the original version. For Will, they are perfect because his feet sweat so badly and they provide protection for his toes and his feet and breathe. I guess I just publicly justified why I bought my child some Crocs. HAHAHA. I think Livy looks cute! Of course, you are right, she can make anything cute!
