I was reading a story book, where I came across this line.
When she smiled at him, he shifted from one foot to the other, thinking how lovely she looked.
Context: They met in a park. They were talking when this line occurred. Even after this line they were also talking.

    That's true. Specifically, he is shifting his weight from one foot to the other and back again, repeatedly. He's nervous and is fidgeting.
