Back To School on the Brain




I know.  It's hard to think about boots, sweaters, and jackets in July, but between the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the release of back to school styles, I get all excited to shop (and maybe dream of pumpkin spice everything, too soon?)


The North Face jacket is a staple in this family.  This 'Oso' style is included in the Anniversary every year and is worth every discounted penny.  I first purchased a 6-12m purple one when Ashlynn was a baby and it last her through two winters and then Kenley last year as well.  I bought her a periwinkle version in a 3T last year and decided to hand down that one to K this year and get A a 4T in lavender bloom.  I'm hoping they both wear those sizes for the next to years then K moving into the 4T.  I'm obsessed with this style because it's fleece and warm, just like my TNF jacket, but isn't a risk in the car.  Down jackets or puffy coats can compress during an accident leaving extra room between your child and the buckle.  I find the kids are pretty warm wearing them as long as properly layered.  Of course, they are suited for a polar vortex, but the kids wouldn't be playing outside in those low temps regardless.

I'm obsessed with the suede booties, I actually got a pair for both girls so we can all twin together.  Old Navy is currently giving card holders 40% off regular price items (THANKYOU) and and extra 30% of sale items (JACKPOT).  Gap is having 35% regular price items and 30% off sale (TREAT).  Old Navy rarely offers more than 20% off regular price items and usually advertises "up to 40% off sale prices", so this is a great deal for back to school shoppers!

  2. Haha, I don't really have any! The North Face Jacket for sure, they have kids saucony sneakers for <$25. We picked up a new TNF jacket for my husband and I got a new pair of Zella Live In leggings ($33 instead of $52). There are some good deals on makeup, like the jumbo size purity wash by philosophy, but I'really didn't "shop" the sale for other stuff. We needed a jacket because K grew out of hers, A still fits in the 3T but figured we'd just size up since K can wear it this year. My husband has been wanting a new coat and I needed to replace my leggings, that was enough $ spent. I picked up some clothes at old navy with my 40%, more bang for my buck.

  3. I've been thinking about this too! It was 90+ today so it's hard to imagine wearing a sweater but Old Navy just released the little boys sweaters that I LOVE for Mason and I want one in every color!
