August means enjoying the last days of summer vacation and preparing for back to school. As my kids have grown, so have their likes and dislikes (tween energy). It’s important that I find them things that will excite them about going back to school and back to learning. When it comes to back to school shopping and choosing school outfits, all three of my kids also have their own personal style. Ryder has fully embraced being a teenage boy and his favorite boarding brands and graphic tees. Siella likes trends, tie dye, wide leg pants, accessories, etc… And Gemma is all about comfort and a casual look. Can we blame her?
Where to Begin
School fashion essentials can include so many different things, depending on the child. But a new backpack, good denim jacket, versatile pieces like a basic tee, black jeans, a favorite hoodie, laid back jeans, and a light jacket are all great places to begin. New shoes for gym class are a great place to start. Additionally, for school supplies, fresh notebooks for a new year of homework and group projects. The kids have enough stress from the school season, one of the best ways to get them excited for the year is by letting them pick essential items, top picks and comfortable looks for their school wardrobe. Let’s start this year out on the right foot with new pieces and let’s tackle this school list!
When I shop for back to school I try to have their interests in mind so I don’t find myself returning everything they refuse to wear or use. But luckily some of my favorite companies and brands offer cute products my kids love too. Crate & Kids just launched an amazing collection of back packs, lunch boxes, and more. They can even be monogrammed! Mabel’s Label has always been my go to for labels. Skip Hop has super cute food thermos options, while we absolutely love the water bottles from Owala. I have narrowed down our favorites that we will personally be ordering. From hoodies to snacks (Sunnie has the best snacks!), this list will help you get ready for an exciting 2022-2023 school year.
Happy shopping and happy back to school!
