Since my kids wear uniforms to school, our back to school shopping is pretty limited. While I love the fact that there won’t be any arguments with my daughter about what to wear to school on a hectic morning, I know that kids like to show their personalities through their clothing. I tell my kids that they can do that through their shoes and backpacks! I actually don’t think my son really cares but he suddenly has an interest in which shoes he wears. The month of August has been devoted to picking out the perfect “accessories” to their school uniforms so I’ve been scouring websites and searching for deals. While shopping for my kids I found a few personal favorites in the way of shoes:
From L to R, Merrell Kids Chameleon Arc Jump $27 (orig. $60) at 6PM.com; J Crew Factory Patent Tortoise Ballet Flats $44.50 (orig. $54.50); Puma Roma Flower Jr. $35.99 (orig. $55) at 6PM.com; Kenneth Cole Reaction Prize on By Mary Janes $32 (orig. $40) from Shoes.com– 20% off w/ “20SCHOOL” + free shipping.
There are tons of cute back packs and lunch boxes out too and these are just a few that are on sale of course!
From L to R, Herringbone Rucksack $25.86 (orig. $36.95) and Leopard Print Backpack $17.46 (orig. $24.95) from GapKids where backpacks are on sale or you can get 30% off though 8.21; Burton Day Hiker Backpack $27.48 (orig. $54.95);
The DwellStudio Kids Lunch Box in Dots Petal $35.20 (orig. $38) from Layla Grayce (get 10% off with “school” through 8.31) is adorable and stylish. The Pack It Bags seem great too because they keep lunches cold for up to 10 hours- my kids are really lobbying for these and I may just try them out. They do have an ongoing offer of buy one, get a second for free for only $19.95.
