Layering socks over your tights is not only a great layering trick for the cooler weather, but it is also a great way to spice up your tights (there's that saying again . . . should I patent it?). It also works when you randomly stumble upon an ever so fall-y random hay bale for your outfit photos, no?
Speaking of random, a week or so ago my daughter and I found ourselves in Target. I believe we were getting something for the Halloween party or something but we were on a specific mission and I was trying to stay on said mission without detouring.
We walked very quickly by the shoes and I kept my eyes forward. "Come on Brielle," I said. "No shoes for mommy right now. We're on a budget!" She giggled a little and let it go.
Fast forward to a week ago when Brielle was at dance class. Her teacher complimented me on my heels. I thanked her and went to leave. But then Brielle says "My mom can't buy anymore shoes. She is on a budget. And she already has like a lot of shoes." Then my niece, also in my daughter's dance class, chimed in. "Yeah, she seriously has like 200 pairs of shoes."
Kids. Hilarious. Observant. Unfiltered.
