Back to School Style guide—shopping for kids clothes and back to school supplies.
Somehow summer break is almost over and we are gearing up for back to school. Time to start shopping for all the things my little dude will need to make this year awesome. Moms, if you’re like me then you know the supplies list is pretty easy to tackle. It’s shopping for clothes that can be a headache.
Clothes shopping for kids of any age is tough, shopping with kids is even tougher. That’s why my first piece of advice is to shop online. Especially if you are shopping for a younger child. Who wants to experience the joy of chasing a child around the department store? Not me! Save yourself time and sanity by shopping online.
I love shopping online for the kids back to school stuff. It’s so much easier than shopping in-store, and I can always find better selections of sizes and styles. Plus, it’s easier to find great deals and compare sales too. I can jump online after my little is in bed and shop for everything we need, all in the comfort of my home. And often in my pajamas!

Best Stores for Back to School Shopping
These are my favorite places to stock up on kids clothing and gear for the school year. I’ve found that they have the best prices and the best quality for kids clothing that can last through all the wash, wear and tear. My boys are rough on clothes, so I try to find solid, well-made pieces that are stylish and comfortable. I want them to look good and feel good!

Women’s Fashion Trends – Camo Green, Femme Tops & Casual Wear
Of course I couldn’t avoid all the cute styles for women while I was shopping. I found a few fabulous pieces that will transition from summer to fall. How cute are these button-up tunic tops by a.n.a? They are the perfect mom-life piece to wear anywhere. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the playground or Sunday brunch. I bought it in white and blue.
How to Wear White Jeans
Deconstructed denim is still so hot and I found the most amazing pairs. Not only are these super comfy they have just the right amount of stretch to make them hug your curves too. I got them in white and army green. White jeans are one of my favorite go-tos for creating a stylish outfit day or night, all year round. You can pair a basic tee with a pair of white jeans and heels and look super stylish. Or wear a romantic, feminine top with white jeans to give the look an edge. Trust me ladies, if you don’t have a pair of white jeans you need to get these now.
