Hi Friends!! I feel like it’s been forever – we had the best time in Block Island this past week and it was really nice that I was able to unplug a bit, be in the moment and savor some of the last rays of summer with my crew. Now that we are back it’s time to kick it into high gear with the back to school prep. Today I am rounding up my favorite back to school fashion for boys & girls! On the ride home this weekend I started to get my head around my long checklist and quickly started to tackle the outfit portion of that list as there are SUCH cute things out there right now and really good sales going on especially at Old Navy so I just had to share. My kids grow SO fast which means I need to upgrade some of their basics (like shoes, jackets, etc.) along with grabbing some of the fun new arrivals I am see’ing at my favorite retailers for the kids.

Jackets, shoes and jeans are usually the big ticket items. I usually get them a north face jacket (eyeing this one for G) for the winter so in the Fall I like to find a good quality but easy on the wallet rain coat. I know it may seem strange I have PJ’s on this list but I love to get them a fresh new pair so that they are excited for a new season of life to start and ending their day in something new helps make the transition a little easier (maybe it’s just for me but that’s ok!). Then for Grace I get a few dresses as she can wear those into fall with a cardigan and Brian will get a number of tops to mix and match and layer with in the winter.
This is a big year as Brian is off to Kindergarten and Grace is going to preschool! Motherhood is such a ride as I simultaneously can’t wait for them to be little independent people out in the world learning and growing, but also am seriously having all the emotions about my babies being at this stage already. What’s that saying!? the days are long but the years are short? Ugh so true!!
The back to school deals at Old Navy right now are so good!! Not only are there back to school sales on specific items but you also get 40% off your order (on labeled items – ends today!!) with code “STYLE” some exclusions apply. It was hard to narrow down the items for this list so I’ve included more of the things I am eyeing at Old Navy incase you want to take advantage of the sale. I hope this helps you find some of the items you need to get school ready with the kiddos this year!
