The evidence of our footwear troubles now that Ella has started school:
Her little face looks cute as can be and we did a cute hair-do.
Still looking good. She picked out her shirt and I gave her an option between this skirt and some shorts...she picked the skirt of course :-).
Uh-oh! Fashion alert!
I tried to convince her to at least leave out the socks, but they are brand new shoes and I was a little worried she'd get blisters, so I didn't force the issue.
Oh well, what can you do :-)?! Comfort and playground friendliness over fashion now!
