This morning as I was getting ready to go to work, my son (who is 7) said to me, “I love your shoes and socks”.
So I thought I’d share them with you. The shoes are brown snakeskin ballet flats from Tahari and I got them from Marshalls when I was in the States, the stockings are from Target in Australia, they’re just fine brown fishnet knee-high stockings, and the jeans are a straight leg cut from Portmans in Australia. They really dress up a pair of jeans, but are still very practical and great to run around in (comfort is important to me).
Oh my, Imogen! They are indeed, tres cute shoes! (and I am VERY impressed with you son's sense of style!)
Have a lovely, well-shod weekend 😀
What fabulous shoes.
Jamtart – I love them too – and I was surprised about his compliment as he doesn't normally comment on what I wear.
Jane – and such a bargain too!
Perhaps your son has inherited your sense of style? Or you've trained him very well!
I love the shoes too.
Oh, what gorgeous, gorgeous shoes. And a gorgeous boy for noticing them.
When a child gives a compliment you can be sure that it is sincere!!
I love stylish and comfortable shoes myself. I wish I'd bought some shiny red Repetto flats in Paris last week.
notSupermum – given that my son prefers to wear superhero character t-shirts and doesn't care if his trousers are too short – currently he has very little sense of style – but he is sweet.
pendlestitch – yes he is gorgeous.
Ingrid – and the compliment I got from my daughter this morning was "I love your fat boobies" mmmm lovely!
cute! and a bargain too. I love it that your son said he likes them.. Gosh I miss having a 7 yr. old around. It's not worse now that they're teens, just different 🙂
Very nice! The fishnets really add a lot. Your son has good taste. 🙂
I love the things kids say, and when they compliment you it's especially cute.
I like how you paired the fishnets with the cute flats. I'll have to steal that idea from you! 🙂
Your son has great taste! Lovely and unexpected combination. Well done 🙂
Great shoes! I never really wore flats before, because my short legs need that extra inch or so. However, I recently bought a pair and I'm warming up to them. I have to wear them with the right pants so as not to feel dumpy, but they certainly are comfy and make a nice change of pace.
Definitely very cute! And such a fun post!
Margo – I just love watching my kids grow and change.
Sallymandy – it's great how something so simple as a pair of fishnets can really add some interest to an outfit.
Cciele – steal away!
Doll – My feet couldn't take heels every day!
Maria – thanks!
Snakeskin! Isn't it amazing how it works with everything? And there is nothing like the heartfelt compliment from a son who finds his mother beautiful.
I LOVE your new shoes. Soooooo cute!!!
