Little Style / Big Style: Metallic Oxford Shoes

Those little girls’ oxfords are Eleanor’s new shoes for the fall. Is it crazy to be considering a matching pair for me? I promise I wouldn’t put ribbon laces in mine.

    Not crazy at all – love those grownup shoes! :)

    So cool! You don’t have to wear them at the same time (though I don’t thing it would hurt, my biggest dream as a little girl was to match my mom), but please don’t use pink ribbon as shoelace!

    If I had a daughter I would totally get the matching pair! Go for it!

    i find it sweet when moms and daughters share a similiar style – no matter what their ages – so i say “go for it!” … and then please show us a photo of the two of you together in your style-y shoes!

    I have a pair of metallic oxfords! (These: I wear them ALL THE TIME. Instant pizzazz!

    No, not crazy! It’s fun and there will come a day when she’ll want nothing to do with dressing like her mommy, so I say do it while you can.

    Now, is there something weird with having matching shoes with a son? Because I totally want to get my toddler matching mocs to mine, but my friends are advising me against it.

      You’re right. I should go for it while I still can!

      And I think it would be equally adorable for a mother/son team. Maybe even more so.

    Ohh i love the touch of ribbon! xo

    Go for it! I’ll be looking for the two of you on the streets of Chicago!

    I *had* some silver oxfords in 7th grade! Oh how I loved them. I wore them even after the silver scuffed away on the toes.

    Crazy? Not at all! I can’t wait until my 7 mo. old daughter and I can wear matching outfits :)

    So cute! I had some boring white ones when I was little. Betsey Johnson had some gold glittered ones I have my eye on. Buy them and post pictures!

    I feel a little relieved, I bought some new red shoes the other day to match my 5 yr olds for an upcoming wedding …

    I love your choice, hey, why not? :)

    I would be OK if you didn’t wear them together. Though I think that is the idea here.

    I have this thing about matching mother daughter outfits. Either the daughter looks too old or the mother looks too juvenile.

      I would probably feel silly in matching outfits. I’ve unintentionally matched shoes with Eleanor before though (both wearing red flats). I think it could be cute if it’s subtle.

    even target has little girls’ metallic oxfords! they are sooo adorable.

    I just got a pair of Oxfords myself. What are you planning to wear yours with? Please do one of your style posts using Oxfords…for mom and tot! :)

      Here’s a style post from last August with Oxfords. I’d wear them with skinny jeans and a more feminine top, or a short(ish) dress and tights.

    The shoes are so cute. ^ ^

    • anne August 11, 2011 at 1:10 pm #

      i can’t find them on nordstrom website! help!

    seeing these reminded me of when I was a kid and had to spray paint my ballet shoes and tap shoes silver when it was recital time. I bet you could find some oxfords at a salvation army and spray them to ahieve the same effect (and save some major bucks). On a side note, whenever my daughter’s cheapo Target glitter shoes get scuffed we usually just apply some glue and glitter in different colors.

    Only a little girl, and I’m stealing Eleanor’s style secrets. ;) I’m totally putting ribbons in my shoes instead of laces.

  20. Robin August 18, 2011 at 3:04 pm #

    I can’t wait to see pictures of Eleanor in these shoes! Share, please?!?! I’m seriously contemplating them for my Emmaline.
