Back to School With Poppy


Today I’m partnering with my friend, Poppy, to talk about back to school shopping. Poppy is entering Kindergarten this year so we went clothes shopping to get some items before the year started. We had a ton of fun and want to show you what we got:



Here are our tips for finding great clothes to take you back to school:

  1. Find your “basics” to start your new wardrobe. Basic doesn’t have to mean boring. We loved the striped shirts because they’re fun and will go with a lot. The striped shirt, for example, can be dressed with with a pretty necklace or worn more casually. We also picked up a pair of gray leggings that she can wear now and later.
  2. Stick to a color scheme to maximize your outfit possibilities. Since Poppy will be going to school 5 days a week now, she has more outfits to put together than ever before. She loves the colors pink and blue, so we stuck more to those tones so that all of her choices could go with each other.
  3. Find items that layer well. School technically starts in the summer, so we wanted to find clothes that she could wear now and layer with later. For example, she can wear her white shirt with leggings now, and then layer the vest over it when it gets cooler out. She also styled the striped shirt under the denim dress for a completely different look.

We went to Old Navy, TJ Maxx, and Target to get Poppy’s clothes.
