It’s back to school time! I can’t even believe it. The summer always has a way of flying by, doesn’t it?
Even though my kids wear a uniform to school, we still enjoy our “fall shopping”- because there’s just something about fall clothes that I can’t get enough of.
Over the past few weeks, We’ve gotten a few peeks at some back to school trends that we are LOVING, so I thought I would share!
1. Colored Denim
I love everything about this outfit– in fact we own it. This season, I am feeling mustard color denim is a must have. It’s *just enough* color and goes with everything!
Ruum has a Back To School promo that offers 30% off when you purchase any 3 full priced items. This outfit qualifies!
Some older boys may be hesitant to try out this trend, but colored denim on boys rocks! My son owns several pair. Something else that rocks? Slip ons! Admit it, some days, they are just easier! These woven slip ons can be dressed up or dressed down- which I love.
2. Skinny Jeans & High Tops
At the age of just 8 years old, my son is a total “Sneaker Head”. Children’s Place, The Gap and Ruum all have some cute casual sneakers to make every day outfits trendier for boys. These casual sneakers are not to be confused with gym/athletic sneakers- but are great for the every day denim look.
There I go with the colored denim again! My daughter and my 18 year old sister both own these enchanted rose skinny jeans, by Ruum (Yes, my 18 year old sister fits in kids clothes… do you hate her? 😉 ) These burgundy red hightop wedge sneakers are adorable for older girls.
This outfit also qualifies for Ruum’s 30% off Back To School promo.
3. Girls Printed Pants
Cherokee Leggings: $12 | Cherokee Graphic Tee: $6.99 |Cherokee Cardigan: $16.99
There goes that mustard color again- and I love it with royal blue. From polka dots to tribal prints, printed Jeans and leggings are a great look for girls and it is everywhere!
4. Rocker Chic
The Children’s Place really has some adorable stuff this season. Leopard print flats should be a staple in every girls wardrobe and these are super cute! Pairing this moto jacket with a girly ruffle lace top is a great way to be rocker chic.
5. 90’s Plaid/ Grunge
Back to school styles always have a lot of plaid out, but this year we’re seeing a bit of a “grunge” type twist on some- and the 90’s child inside is kind of loving it.
Ruum + Justice
6. Casual Prep
Casual preppy looks never get old– polo’s, cardigans, and this year- super super cute oxfords for girls!
Crazy 8 + Kohls
Bottom line- I’m obsessed with the fringe boots and booties out for both women and girls! They go great with dresses and jeans which makes them worth splurging on in my book.
