I don't think you need to pay full price at Janie and Jack or order from expensive boutique catalogs to dress your kids in style....Impressing other parents with labels is overrated. There are plenty of adorable pieces out there!
Believe it or not, Natalie's first day of school outfit came from Wal-Mart. (gasp!) For the first time, I let her choose her dress for the first day, and she thought that this pink one looked "very first grader." No, it's not an outfit that would hold up to wearing once a week...but for around $10, I was happy with the way she looked. Still "little girl" without tons of frills or cartoon characters or peace signs plastered all over it.
I chose a lot of mix and match items for both girls this year. Plain and patterned leggings, cotton tops, polos, skirts that can go with various tops, and jeans. We got a lot of things at Target, Kohls, The Children's Place, Carter's, Crazy 8, and even Wal-Mart. Mary Janes in black and brown; tennis shoes and sneakers from Payless...we've had good luck with those shoes not wearing out. You've seen some of Natalie's school ensembles in my Instagram feed...
I even stopped in at a local consignment sale for a few extras...cute things that I haven't seen anywhere else. Still need a couple of cute church dresses.
As for me, I don't really need any more clothes. But that doesn't mean I can't window shop, right?
I might actually need some leopard print flats. No, I definitely need them. Can you believe those cute shoes are from Payless? The white top is from Wal-Mart and I spotted the other two on Dress Barn's website (who knew?!).
I also spotted some fabulous style boards on Pinterest that would look awesome on me if I was a size 6 again. (Please click the source listed under each photo to Pin directly from the original source.)
And, as I've said before, I haven't bothered much with T's wardrobe because he is uber picky. But I just might drag him to the store with me after his next paycheck. If we're all going to look fabulous, he needs to fit in!
What's your favorite thing to wear in the Fall?
