My nine year old and I recently met my sister at Saks to do a little Spring shopping. After lunch and a quick look at the sunglasses, where my sister picked up some stylish Tory Burch sunnies, we headed to the shoe department. I love how even though we don't live in New York any more, Saks has that awesome reminder...you know, the sign that reminds you that this fashion icon's shoe department has something that is unique, their own zip code in New York City.
While I was trying on some adorable Jimmy Choo ballet flats, that I ultimately bought because they were just too comfortable and yes they were cute too, my daughter asked if she could use my phone.
So I handed my iPhone over to her thinking that she wanted to play some games while we shoe shopped but she had another idea in mind. I watched as she happily walked around the department taking pictures of the shoes she loved and commenting on why she loved them.
I had so much fun that day, not only because I walked away with some extremely fabulous shoes, but because I really enjoyed the time with my daughter and sister.
Rather than keep her choices all to myself I decided to share a few of them with you. So if you let a nine year loose in Saks with a camera this is what you get...
This Vera Wang ballet flat is adorable and again, a great color for Spring and Summer. My nine year old said there are two things she likes about this shoe...it's an awesome color and it's a classic style. I agree with her. I love pieces that are classic with a bit of a twist.
My Style Shout Out Tip: The next time you are shopping with your children give them a camera and see what catches their eye. For me I really enjoy getting the opportunity to see things from my daughter's point of view.
