While July is busy squeezing in lots of summer memories, it is also the time to start thinking about back to school shopping. I’m partnering with Walmart to share some affordable back to school shopping basics and tips. Walmart is a great one-stop-shop for back to school because not only can you get all your school supplies, but you can get the kids stocked up on new outfits too. Plus, with the speed these kids grow, it’s nice to not break the bank over pieces that might only fit them for one season!
If you are shopping for more than one little, they even have a convenient shop by age option for back to school shopping, making it THAT much easier.
A Pair of Classic Jeans
A nice pair of jeans is essential for a back to school wardrobe – for boys and girls! Mac could hardly squeeze into these jeans. He needs “husky”, not skinny. But cam’s fit perfect.
I always want to have good layering pieces for myself, and I stock up on them for the boys too. This makes their tops more versatile giving them multiple ways to wear. Finding ways to wear the same items a few ways just means we can avoid overbuying pieces.
I love this zip up sweater for Mac because he can layer it over button-ups, t-shirts and polos. For Cam, we got him this vest that can be layered over short sleeve t-shirts (these come in a pack of 3) for the beginning of the school year and over long sleeve tees as temperatures cool down.
More Back to School Outfit Ideas for Girls & Boys
As you guys know, I’m hashtag boy mom over here. But I wanted to share some fun inspiration for girls! Plus, it allows me to live a little vicariously through other girl moms. Just like with my boys, I suggest comfy pants and thes jeans have good reviews and come in several other washes.
