Top 5 Back to School Shoes for Girls

Go back to school in stylin' kicks this season with lots of fun, inexpensive fabulous shoe styles to choose from. It was hard to narrow down our list to just 5, but we know your faves and those set the tiebreakers. So check 'em out and see if you agree that these are the 5 best styles on the market this season.

No. 5: Chuck Taylor Two-Fold

Converse All-Stars are here to stay. What' hot this year are bold, bolder, boldest colors. Like these two-fold convertable high-tops that let you pull-em up for a single color or fold 'em down for a pop of two-toned pizzazz. Pick up a pair of contrasting laces, pair them with mismatched socks and go crazy with fun color!

No. 4: Vans

"If you're having fun, you're doing it right," seems to be Vans' motto. While Vans runs a wide range of styles, we're still loving the classic slip-ons that come in single colors or cuh-rayzee designs. There's even styles for the divas among you in animal prints, glitter, sparkle and sequins, or cupcakes, owls and Hello Kitty prints for kitsch-enthusiasts.

No. 3: Hunter Boots

"They're just rubber boots," you may say. "Nay," we say. Look closer and you'll see stylish, practical 3-season boots that keep your tootsies warm and dry, have a super-comfy orthopedic sole, and make a great accessory to wear with knee-length skirts and tights, one of our favorite classic fall looks. Wellingtons, or "Wellies," have been around in classic green since 1856, but now come in many colors. Buy your Hunters with the cute sock liners, and fold them over the top for picture perfect style.

No. 2: Tom's Shoes

As most Tom's afficionadoes know, with every pair you purchase, Tom's will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. The style and construction are inspired by the shoes Argentine farmers have worn for hundreds of years. We love their styles, their world-helping attitude and goals and the fit. Some teens tell us they don't wear well, which means they'll only last a couple of months at best, and others tell us they can get fairly stinky. Still others swear by Tom's for comfort, style and fit, and barely wear anything else outside of gym class.

No. 1: Superga Canvas Shoes

Celebrities, style editors and ordinary folks like you and me all like Superga canvas shoes. We discovered them through Lyss, teen fashion guru, and can't get enough of them. We hate to call them sneakers because you can dress 'em up or down, wearing them with jeans or a dress. They come in all colors and styles, including American flags, ombre (dark faded to light), and the hottest print this season, polka dots. With an extra strong, fully breathable, pure cotton, upper it's a lightweight, simple canvas tennis shoe with a rubber sole. They're machine washable and will age perfectly, just like your favorite pair of jeans. Bonus for petite femmes among you, they are finished with a 1.5" platform for extra height.

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
