Back to School Essentials under $50

DYING over her outfit! How cute is her little dress, hat, and glasses!

This picture sums up our life 75% of the time. Mara teasing Wes, Wes tickling Beckam, Beckam flayling his arms from being tickled and hitting Wes, Wes upset cause he got poked, Beckam wanting to give Wes a hug because Wes is upset and Beckam just wants Wes attention all the time.  Wes not wanting his hug. Then Beckam melting down because Wes doesn’t want his love lol. Sibling love lol!

School is officially in full swing. As much as I love summer break, I think a part of the kids and even myself like the routine of school. And I am sooo excited for fall clothes! If it’s a little cloudy I am pulling out fall layers as an excuse to break into my fall wardrobe even though it’s probably cloudy and 75-80 degrees. Are you guys so excites for fall too?

Most of the back to school pieces I got for the kids are fall pieces. I like to get core pieces that are versatile enough that the kids can and will wear all through the year. That means pieces that will hold up well, can mix-and-match easily with other pieces, and that don’t break the bank. I always love classic prints and timeless styles for kids, you guys have seen them on my blog a million times – it’s always one of our big stops for back to school shopping.

One of my favorites this year was  (so excited to twin with her and I am always looking for cute hats for her! She’s a hat girl as much as I am!) These (on sale) were a big score! I love little booties on her! They have zippers on the side so they are really easy to get off and on. In love with for the boys! I have gotten them in a different color every year. You can see the blue high tops from last year (they are still available this year) in this post. Also the boys’ are another staple. We have gotten a few for Wes and Beckam in multiple colors every year. They are great for layering!

Below are some more of my favorite staples for girls and boys that are really easy to mix and match for back to school. I like to stick to pieces that are really versatile, darkers colors that don’t stain easily, and patterns that I can mi and match a lot (hello and !)

Wes loves comfy clothes. This neutral (also got ) is great for him to move in and give him a little more motion than jeans. And I mentioned it earlier but love all   they have for boys. Old Navy has great shoes for boys!
