Bonjour Pom d’Api

There is something about a beautifully crafted, French children’s sandal that makes my heart sing… I don’t know exactly what it is but I know that it makes me think of walking along the croisette in Cannes watching the kids run about on the beaches below while the sea laps up at their feet.

Pom d’Api is THE French children’s shoe brand.  They are nearly impossible to find them in the States and every time that I try I can never find the cool colors and I always get stuck with tan or black.  This season I just broke down and said, “We need them – and in NEON!”  As most of you know NEON is the new “it” trend for the season.  It started last year, but this summer it has really gone mainstream (in a good way) at places like J Crew and The Gap.  We know all of you moms and dads remember the neon trend from the 80’s and 90’s but we think it’s completely fresh this time around!  Look at the great pops of color you can get in accessories – scarves, belts and most importantly shoes!

Anyway, trust me on this one… you will only need one sandal this summer and THIS is it (unless you need both colors like I do…).  Beautiful leather uppers, a supportive rubber sole and TONS of gorgeous French style.  Why?  Because your petite fille deserves it…
