as i am sure you can guess, i get my jollies off of back to school shopping. it is a whole process and science for me and today, i am bringing it to you. get ready. this is a big one.
for the next two weeks i will be bringing you everything you need to know for back to school, from hair tutorials to family themes to back packs to CLOTHES, of course.
and miss james is pumped. i mean she even did a toe touch. after we talked about how she should react if people wrongly accuse her of being out in Four Square (see her worried face in the first pictures? this is when she told me about her four square dilemma). we ended in toe touches sooo problem solved?
ruby: tank/ sweater vest/ shorties/ backpack / sandals (old from zara but similar here and NO she cannot wear these two school but loves to slip them on for aerial dance and these slides are pretty adorable too)
This year, i decided to break up our back to school picks by the brands we love. Today, we are talking about our tried and true retail stores that we know and love. Tomorrow will be some of our favorite etsy and indy designers.
here is my back to school shopping process… use it, pin it.
First up CREWCUTS… we love crew cuts for can’t be beat quality and their perfect ability to mix trends with classics that stay away from hoochieville while keeping a funky and sophisticated spin. Crewcuts gets the best color ways of shoes, so we ALWAYS check here first to get the most unique shoes. For boys, we also love their dapper spin on dresswear (but that is for another post) and the best henleys around,
Crew Cuts boys:
Peek Kids has quickly become one of Ruby’s favorite brands. Their embroidered tops have a great boho vibe and their shorts always have perfectly on trend patterns that are not too short in length and wash like a dream.
fedora/ black shorts/ moto boots (a must must! they will wear them everyday with shorts, skirts and jeans) / collar shirt / short sleeve sweatshirt / indigo hoodie / denim shirt/ green slub harem pants / gray moto pants
Gap Kids Boys: until the day i die i will love brown cords for myself and my babies. i had the best vintage levi pair in high school that i still dream about. they eventually ripped right up the booty from all my wear and tear but i will say i have never been so in love then i was with those pants.
1. chambray shirt 2. cords (we also love these cut into shorts) 3. camo shorts 4. chukka brown boots ( not sure we would wear these to school but they are just so good for church, parties, and fancy dinners & weddings)
Last but oh so not least ZARA kids:
