Sadie and I recently went back to school shopping-for the first time ever! She starts kindergarten next month (pause to hyperventilate), and she is SOO excited. So when Kohls contacted me about participating in their Back 2 School campaign, I was all for it! I don’t let myself go shopping for the girls much, so it was really fun to let loose! Also I was nervous about letting her go to school in all handmade clothing (mostly because I know kids are HARD on clothes at school lol) so it’s nice to have a good mix of handmade and store bought for her school debut!
We made a day of it and went to lunch at Panera afterwards, too. Sadie loved having me all to herself (ditto, kiddo), and kept saying,” Mom this is Sadie and Mom’s special day!” It was adorable.
We both had a great time picking out her clothes, and we actually agreed on most of it-she is a pretty easy to please little gal when it comes to clothes….as long as there is some pink involved. And eek! She got her first pair of Chucks!
love ‘em….also a few pairs of faux Toms that are flipping adorable. I love kids shoes. So anyways….I tried to pick out clothing that mix and matched, and we had a ton of fun making new outfits when we got home! Here are a few of my faves below!
My little gal in these skinny jeans=cutest thing ever. I got them in a slim size, and they ACTUALLY fit her little legs! And the polka dot sweater? hello. love at first sight. They have it in navy blue too, though not in her size. (sad face)
I am obsessed with this horse print tunic. It’s in my favorite colors (ahem, Sadie likes them too….haha) and hello? with those aqua leggings? so cute!
I usually don’t like screen printed shirts, but this little owl looks like she’s ready to start learning! Plus the colors are fresh and fun! Plus, built in shorts…score.
Ya’ll know about my hot air balloon love-so this shirt was a given! Sadie loves them too, luckily.
I ADORED this hi-low ruffled top-I’m thinking about recreating it! This print is fantastic-it went with no less than 5 of our bottoms that we picked out-how’s that for versatile?
This could go on for a very long time, so I’ll stop there…haha!
So a huge thank you to Kohls for helping us with our back to school shopping! We had a fantastic time and Sadie is looking forward to school even more now! (especially after I let her get a light up My Little Pony backpack. haha. Mom of the year award, please and thanks.)
Disclosure: I was given a gift card to Kohls, but all views and opinions are my own. I would never endorse something I didn’t use love-and we are avid Kohls shoppers!
Oh yeah, Kohls sent along some amazing little gifts for me, too! I am in love with the nail polish color, and I adore a good floral scarf & candle combo.
