We are in full on back to school prep mode around our home and I love it! I’m not thrilled with the kids heading back to school because I love having them home all the time, but there are definitely some perks….like awesome new shoes! The Joy Of Back To School Time With My Little Fashion Girl is sponsored by our friends at Zappos.

Leepz Stride Rite Shoes

Emmy is our in house fashion expert… especially when it comes to back to school style. 

The brighter the better, and if it flashes light it is a sure winner in her book. I totally agree, but then again I am a child of the 80’s, so that should come as no surprise to anyone.

Emmy is really tough on her shoes and she is also constantly on the go so we go for quality and fit with her. We want her to wear shoes that give her all the support she needs to keep up with her happy go lucky life. This is all well and good, but I also have limited time to make her perfect back to school shoes a reality. 

Enter Zappos!


Can you hear the angels sing as I said that? I sure can! 

Zappos makes shopping fun and easy, even if you are slightly overwhelmed by the whole back to school scene and you are counting the 5,000 things that have to get done before the big day like I am!

Zappos puts ordering kids shoes they will love at your finger tips which made Emmy and I both giddy!

the importance of new shoes

Even when I am shopping online, I always include the kids.

I’ve found that a good start to the school year makes all the difference, and including the kids in the preparation is a big part of that success! Emmy and I went on the computer together to shop on Zappos. As soon she saw these shoes she was sold! Pun totally intended!

jumping for joy

We received Stride Rite’s new light-up Leepz kids shoes quickly after ordering, and the second they got to us, Emmy did what most kids do…she tested them out of course! I so wanted to tell her to keep them sparkling new for the first day of school, but I couldn’t interrupt her joy. She said they even made her run faster! Oh to be a kid again…

I can vouch for their jump skills! These shoes got some air! Or maybe it is the spirit of our little fashion girl that did that?! Either way, a good pair of shoes never hurt! Be sure to check out all of Stride Rite shoes on
