Here comes the biggest deal of the year….what to wear on the first day of school.
O-M-G……..are you all dreading it as much as I am?
What’s in? What’s not?
We recently went back to school shopping. Afterwards, I checked things out online to see what the fashion currently is. I am happy to report that we bought a good deal of clothes that were “totally hip dude.” (I’m also glad to see that I still have some fashion sense.) Here is a picture of the highlights of our trip for our oldest:
Graphic t’s, cropped shirts, lace and the cardigan. We always need that cardigan. It allows her to wear short sleeved shirts that are still hip, throughout the winter.
Of course yesterday, I realized she needed shoes. I saw these and couldn’t help myself. I’m a sucker for knee high shoes. Luckily, they were on clearance AND I was about to go grocery shopping with my coupons and SAVE that exact amount. It was destiny. (By the way, I’m jealous.) These do, however, meet my criteria which is: The shoes have to be versatile. She can wear them with shorts, jeans and skirts and they don’t necessarily have to match. I will allow her to buy one more pair of shoes but those have to be nice, brown ones.
So was is “in” this year? I’ll tell you. After seeing what is in stores and checking out some fashion magazines, here is what I have found:
- Colored jeans
- Knee high boots/sneakers
- Ballet Flats
- Graphic t-shirts (including cropped T’s that need to have a shirt underneath it)
- Animal print
- Jackets (biker/cargo)
- Cargo pants
- Don’t forget the all important “coolest backpack ever”
Good luck and I hope your kids all have a great school year!
