School is back in session, for my kids anyway. I now have three daughters in high school, and my son is away at college! Don’t get me started on all the drama of having three teenage girls in the house. Once a month, the estrogen is out of control, I tell ya. Anyone with testosterone knows better than to come around then. Then there is cost of having three teenage daughters! Luckily the twins (now seniors in high school) have jobs of their own to pay for their own entertainment and school clothes (or suck up to their grandmothers to take them shopping), and my youngest (a freshman in high school) has been good at saving money from birthdays and babysitting. Plus she doesn’t have the “girly girly” gene like her twin sisters have, so her taste is a tad less expensive.

When I went to highschool (ahem over 20 years ago), we wore corduroy jeans with button up shirts to our Homecoming dances. Now the girls wear formal dresses like it’s prom! And did I mention I now have THREE daughters in high school now, that means THREE homecoming dresses 2012?! They already have their eyes on some cocktail Promgirl dresses*.

So while the girls are mulling over dresses, I’m already searching for affordable, yet trendy formal sandals for them to wear with their Homecoming dress. And here are my favorite finds thus far:
