I love the hustle and bustle of back to school season. The getting back to routine after playing it fairly loose all summer tickles my type-A tendencies. And if I’m being honest, my kids need a reality check; their behavior had been less than stellar before we started back to school, which just reminds me that we all thrive more with order to our days.
Even though we homeschool, I like to bring the same excitement of getting ready for back to school (the glue sticks! The notebooks!) into our home. We spent a full week getting supplies together, organizing the homeschool room, and picking up necessary items for fall activities (soccer cleats, ballet slippers, etc).
I also went ahead and checked off the daunting task of going through the girls’ closets. I like to do this each season so we head into the next knowing the girls are set with clothes and shoes for the upcoming season. It helps me get a better picture of what they really need versus randomly reaching for a cute top or pair of shoes while we are out and about. After a thorough rummaging, I found the girls each needed a pair of casual slip-on shoes, jeans, socks, and just one or two tops to fill out their fall wardrobes.
I’ll be honest, I hadn’t thought to shop at Abercrombie for the girls. Even though I bought my favorite pair of jean short there a few months ago and have fond memories of wanting ALL the Abercrombie in my middle school years, I wasn’t aware they offered clothes for younger kids. But they do! And super cute clothes, might I add. Their denim (see all sales here) is the best I’ve found for my girls. Their sizes start at 3/4, which meant I could even snag jeans for my half-pint, Kaitlyn.
Her favorite pair is the pull on jean leggings with elastic waist (see all colors and styles here). Not only do they fit great AND stay up, they are stretchy enough to make running, jumping, and playing comfortable.
Kaitlyn fit really well into the 3/4 pull-on jean leggings (the 3/4 jeans were a little big in the waist, but keep in mind, she wears 2T/3T undies- she’s pretty small). I ordered Hailey the 7/8 size and I think that was the right choice. They are a little big on her, but considering it’s August and I want her to be able to wear them through April of next year, I did not want them tight. I appreciated that they were comfortable for her, since she can be my child that gets bothered by the “feel” of pants or tags against her skin.
We are all happy to be in the back to school rhythm and are looking forward to all the adventures to come. Their closets are stocked and ready for exploring nature, trips into Charlotte (riding the light-rail is on our fall list of adventures to take), and meeting new friends in our co-op, which begins next week!
