What shoes with black skinny jeans for daytime?

Having recently purchased a pair of skinny jeans (I know only a year too late - isnt baggy in now?), I'm a bit lost as to what shoes to wear.

I bought them for a night out so wore killer red heels which looked great but not very practical for day time mum to 15 month old.

The problem is I'm only 5", so never usually wear flat shoes apart from trusty bikenstocks with jeans for kicking about in.

My legs are ok now I've lost 3 stone (hence not buying them last year) but am still a bit paranoid about them looking like tree trunks

Ok so I'm rambling now - Any help would be most appreciated!!

yes, or rocketdogs

the positive cupcake pumps are good, I have similar ones that I wear with my skinnies

I wear leather flip flops with mine at the moment. metallic flat sandals also look good, imo. If it's wet I wear converse but I prefer the flip flop sandal look.

winter-ankle boots or knee length boot with jeans tucked in

for now-ballet pumps or agree sneakers like converse

congrats on losing 3 stone !

I think you need a heel with a skinny jean otherwise you run the risk of having golf club legs.

ankle boots if you can stand a heel it would look better

apparently we will all be wearing ankle skimming trousers to show off our glamorous ankle boots this winter
