I was so flattered when Nordstrom asked me to share the clothing and shoe essentials I buy my children this time of year. Last week I showed y’all the cutest back to school dresses, tops, and jeans. Today I am sharing the standard “uniform” for elementary and middle school children in Dallas these days (i.e. what kids really want to wear!).
Family traditions often become the memories that stick with us the longest. Children don’t need a bunch of complicated traditions in their life (hello, overkill) but a few special ones will do. Today I am sharing simple back to school traditions if you are looking to start one with your children.
August is here! And that means back to school shopping is on every mom’s brain. I’m partnering with Nordstrom to show you some of the cute things I bought my girls. Plus, a helpful list of all the back to school essentials you can shop stress-free at Nordstrom. Many are on sale as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
My Back to School Checklist is back and better than ever. This was one of my readers’ favorite posts last year probably because it is very thorough, heavily researched (hello, water bottles and lunch containers!), and can be shopped entirely online, if so desired. I put it together with lots of love for my readers who I know are super busy and prefer not to beat the streets in 100 degree temps! So enjoy your easy summer days by the pool a bit longer using this checklist (and share with your friends!).
Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the end of the post!
A sweet reader emailed me and asked if I had an recommendations for Back to School themed books and I thought that was a post-worthy idea! (Just wish I had thought of it sooner!). Plus, a great weekend sale roundup.
A few weeks ago I wrote about doing less and not more when it comes to volunteer and extracurricular activities this coming year. But what if you are the one asking – the one needing volunteers on a committee? How do you respond when people say no?
