Sweet and Summer-y Girls Shoes from Mini Boden

Springtime has finally arrived and this Sunday is we officially move our clocks forward to Daylight savings time. I am thrilled that our long rainy winter has come to an end. My daughter has been wearing her beloved cowboy boots to preschool every day. With our warmer weather I've been searching for some springtime shoes for her to wear with sundresses and skirts. She is at a stage where she will only wear skirts or dresses, so I am hoping to entice the cowboy boots off with some pretty springtime flats!

I'm lucky enough to receive hand-me-downs from a friend, many of which are from Mini Boden. I am huge fan of Boden, the UK fashion brand and their Mini Boden line for kids. The girls' clothing and accessories, including shoes are classic styles with a colorful twist. The clothes are well made, durable and look adorable on. I've picked four spring shoe styles from Mini Boden that I've got my eye on.

The Laceless Plimsolls (top left, $34.00) are a colorful take on the classic lace-up canvas sneaker. I love the rubber toe and laceless design. My daughter will love the little doggies on the insole lining. This style is also available in pink and green. For your prima ballerina these ballet flats (upper right, $45.00) have a leather upper. I am surprised how hard it is to find a classic ballet flat made of leather which lets the feet breathe during warm weather. The elasticized back will help the shoe to stay on, and it comes in silver - a great go-with-everything color for summer. The Patent Thong Sandals (bottom left, $38.00) look very similar to my Birkenstock Gizeh sandals, but much sweeter in this mini-sized version. The sturdy sole will make a durable and good looking summer sandal for the beach, picnics and all around warm weather fun. The gingham slip-on sneakers (bottom right, $30.00) look comfy and durable and will pair perfectly pretty with the sunniest of summertime dresses.
