My kids are forever wanting to dress up and wear their sparky shoes and fluffy tutus to the playground and bounce house. I love having girls who love dress up but it also means their fancy clothing and shoes quickly become well loved. My 2-year-old often wears a dress for 3 days in a row, refusing to take it of even for bedtime. Childhood, right? Little kids don’t sweat much and my girls never get truly filthy, so I don’t mind if she wants to live in her favorite dress. These kitty shoes have been beloved by both my girls, which required me to give them a little makeover. These sparkly pink shoes were secondhand to begin with, and after a year of my daughter frolicking through the grass in our yard, these cute flats needed some TLC. I’m excited to share how I found some matching paint, pink glitter nail polish, and fixed these little kitty shoes right up!
