Back To School Shopping

August 15, 2019

I don’t know about you, but I’m not quite ready for summer to end. I’ve enjoyed having the kids home more and the slower routine, especially in the mornings, but it’s officially time for back-to-school and fall shopping. In the past, I’ve made the mistake of buying both kids fancier outfits that honestly, they just don’t wear much of. Sutton likes getting dressed up occasionally, but for the most part, both of my kids like comfy stuff. I guess they take after my love for athleisure 🙂 

So when back-to-school shopping this year, I kept most of our picks really casual. For Sutton, who is starting Kindergarten(!), we got her a few pairs of sneakers like this Adidas pair. I know she’ll be comfortable and they’re still cute with the iridescent stripes. She also wanted this floral hoodie which I thought was fun. This will be great as the weather starts changing in KC, too. 

As for Grey, he’s obviously not in school yet but we picked him up a few new items for daycare. Like his sister, the kid is all about casual comfort. He lives in joggers like these which are perfect for boys and girls. They definitely stand up for all the playing and running around they do when they’re this young. And how fun are these colorful Nike sneakers that Grey has been wearing non-stop? I love the throwback feel that remind me of my own childhood. They’re easy for kids to pull on and off which I’m always looking for. 

We grabbed all of these casual comfort picks where we do a lot of the kid’s shopping, Bloomingdale’s. They have the best mix of budget-friendly and stylish clothes – whether you want casual or dressier. They also have other back-to-school essentials like backpacks so it’s a great one-stop-shop this time of year. I’ll share some other things I grabbed for the kids below. 

When do your kids go back to school?
