For all those Back-to-School Procrastinators out there....specifically me!
So here's how Back-to-School goes around my house: I reach into the back of the closet and pull out beautiful, smocked dresses that my mom made for me when I was little. She stored them well, delivered them to me, and they have been waiting for the first day of school. We throw those on and snap the pic! Adorable!
Fast-forward to the next week, my husband Scott is like, "She doesn't have any shorts." or "All of her pants are too small." Then, I realize that I only bought a few, cute outfits for school, and thus, the mega Target run begins.
How about you?
School has started. Kiddos are learning. They are complaining about tags in their shirts and socks, and they want to wear that favorite cape and mask (but not that mandatory mask!) to school. So whether you are a procrastinator or planner, we have a line up of winning school outfits in this blog post. We also share with you some of our favorite stores to shop because it's about community not competition.
Here are our favorite picks! And don't forget to shop local when you can!
Happy Back-to-School (aka Already-in-School) Shopping!

We love shopping at The Bella Bean. First, it's owned by two awesome mommas, and we love to support small businesses! Secondly, they do not charge an arm and a leg for monogramming...in fact, it's included in the price! Here's just one example of the seersucker items that have precious monograms. I love teaching little ones to spell their name by making them wear the letters all day:)
