Everyone knows that first day of school outfit can set the tone for the whole year. While a less than stellar choice may not ruin the entire year, sending your darling to school in the perfect mixture of coolness, style and personal flair can give them that extra boost of confidence they need to really succeed.
I had fun shopping around Gymboree and their sister sites, Janie & Jack and Crazy 8. Everything is $14.99 and under at Gymboree! Which means your child can go back to school looking amazing without breaking the bank.
I decided to throw together a fun outfit to get you started on your shopping journey! First I found the Heart Tee at Crazy 8- they have a bunch of graphic tees but I loved the colors in this one. Plus it’s lightweight, fresh looking and cute without trying too hard. And it’s on sale for only $5!
To dress it up a bit, I added the Striped Canvas Skirt from Janie and Jack, where I also spotted the Cropped Cardigan in Crimson. This is a good way to extend the outfit through the fall season by warming it up- you could also add warm tights or leggings.
The pink Glitter Laceless Sneakers are on sale for $14.99 at Gymboree. See how I’m pulling all the colors from the tee to bring the outfit together? Some cute accessories like the Rope Headband (only $2.99!) and the adorable Kitty Lunchbox from Gymboree finish off a look that is sure to get her noticed in all the very best ways!
Let me know what you think! I’d love to hear about your own great back to school finds.
