childhood fashion flashback

i've had a piperlime gift card burning a hole in my pocket for a few months.  i was browsing around and saw these flats and immediately had a flashback to my first shoe obsession: sam and libby ballet flats!

do any of y'all remember these? oh, how i adored these as a child! my babysitters were high school girls whom i worshipped and i can vividly remember all the high school girls wearing these pink, preppy shoes and wanting some SO badly.  fortunately, they came in kids' sizes and i went through so many pairs.  i can remember begging my mother to wear my sam and libby's every single day.  in my mind, pink shoes with bows went with every outfit.  it looks like you can still find some pairs out there on ebay and etsy.  i'm going to be keeping my eyes peeled as i would love to have a pair of these back in my life!

bon weekend, sweet readers!

Fabulous! I had a pair of lime green ones and felt so stylish in them! I remember wearing them to our Cotillion Classes!

I remember those! They were absolutely everywhere when I was little, but I can't remember if I owned a pair. They'd be so cute with my Lilly and if I remember correctly they were pretty inexpensive!

What a fun memory! I remember wanting to wear them with everything as well. With flats all the rage right now-they should do a new line!
