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!

LOVE all the clothes! That dress with the flowers is too cute!
Oh my goodness, where did summer go? I can’t believe it’s already back to school time. These are great recommendations and I love those tie dye shorts!

There are some amazing picks here. I love the way they all work so well together. It’s a year for mixing and matching!
Yes! Shopping for pieces that can be mixed and matched is so important.
yes, back to school shopping once again. will be heading out this weekend with my kids to shop, thanks to your list it remind me to include sanitizer. I almost forgot it
I can’t believe that kids are starting school right now! Wow, summer never lasts as long as we want it to. Love the tips for school supplies for boys and for girls.
Summer truly never lasts as long as we want!
We did a Kohls run last week to get a few new things for our boys before they head back to school next week. They are so rough on backpacks that’s always at the top of our list. And I got a new backpack too for all the time I spend at their school, too. My boys style is definitely comfortable and casual! It’ll be interesting to see as they get to be teenagers in a few years how that changes.
Kohls is a great place to shop too! Great thinking!
Nnniiiiccceeee….these days are proving so much colder than it was in the past. I’d love a hoodie or jumper for myself.
These look cool and it would look cool for the school that it’s coming. Thank you for sharing!

The New York sweatshirt is adorable. I’m adding many of these items to my carts!
I love that one!
They both are looking so gorgeous in their outfits and totally love the boots.
