We have officially joined the “Matching Mom and Daughter” club. I think we can get away with having matching pants and shoes without looking overly planned.

I was so excited to see that Harper’s Nike Dunks would fit her. The length fits well, her feet are just a little on the chubby side, therefore she looks too cool for school and wears them undone. What this little girl doesn’t know, is that these shoes have a lot of meaning behind them. What We Wore 3
Long ago, when I was in beauty school, I saw a girl with some black and white Nike Dunks. I fell in love with them. The next week, my mom was in Washington DC and saw a pair just like the ones I had described. She got them for me. Flash forward to a few weeks later… I met a boy. We hung out the first night and he looked at me and said “Are those Nike Dunks?” I looked at his feet. He was wearing Nike Dunks too so I wasn’t sure why he was asking me if I was wearing them. Obviously I was. I replied, “Yeah” with a little attitude. He immediately thought I was a brat, but remembered that I must be freaking awesome if I was wearing those shoes. We always joked about how those shoes almost made it so we didn’t have a second date. We had the groomsmen wear Nike dunks at our wedding. We always say that my Nike Dunks need to be gold plated because of how much has happened in my life while I was wearing them. That is why it was appropriate when I got a phone call from my mom when she was on another vacation. We had just found out we were pregnant. We didn’t know what the gender was yet. My mom had found some black and white Nike Dunks for a baby. We had to have them.

Secondly, can we all just take a moment and appreciate this little chunk in all of her squishy glory? The kissable cheeks and those super soft arms. Love them.
