I got these jeans and jacket a couple weeks ago and I have worn them so much! The jeans are so distressed I love them! And olive green is one of my favorite colors for fall so I loved the boyish feel of this cargo jacket (on sale).
I always looked forward to back to school shopping as a kid. It was the highlight of my summer (backwards, I know!). Now that I’m an adult the fun part is feeding off the kid’s excitement so I always try to make it as fun for them as it was for me once upon a time. The key is to let them have some say in the matter. It’s fun watching Mara and Wes explore their own taste, from sweats to dresses.
Since Nike is one of the kids’ favorite brands (and ours too 🙂 we always end up with a few Nike pieces in our back to school clothes haul. Macy’s is our go-to spot for Nike gear for the kids since they always have great deals.
I love Nike sets for Wes – they are priced like a single piece but he gets double the wear out of each piece by wearing them as separates. And don’t let Mara’s lace dress fool you. 😛 Mara can hold her own with the guys and loves Nike as much as her brother does. Mara and Wes each have a pair of Nike slides and wear them constantly. Mara loves the pink detailing on her pair (on sale).
