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!
