Back to school is so bittersweet for me, it marks the start of another new beginning, another fresh start.
This year Micah is moving on up to fourth grade & Emily is moving into K3, both of course so excited for the big move and…well a few special back to school outfits. I’m not one to go all out for back to school outfits (I shop year round as it is hah).
But both of the kids could use a few fresh pieces to their wardrobe and new backpacks (we tend to also use them for travel so Micah’s was a wreck after last year). While Emily went with a rainbow, all the colors must be in it backpack, Micah went with a neutral & heavy duty backpack.
Emily has been completely obsessed with these adorable, sparkly, rainbow Sam Edelman from Kids Shoes! She’s worn her rainbow flats almost everyday since she got them. They go with everything, you know since they’re rainbow! 😉
Micah has recently picked up a love for photography & has started practicing on a film camera. I just LOVE it so much that we are sharing a similar hobby & he’s so excited to learn something new. I love he has a passion for creative outlets like art & photography.
Both of the kids outfits above are completely from Gymboree.
Micah’s backpack & polo top from BLINQ
With the start of a new school year I popped on blinq to see what new items they had, their stock is ever changing so I’m always finding something new. I picked up a new polo & backpack for Micah (his polo was 43% off & one of his fav brands/style!!) Have you heard of BLINQ before?
BLINQ keeps returns/overstock from going into a landfill by selling them for discounted prices, in the U.S. over 5 billion pounds of excess inventory/returns end up in landfills each year! So this is an easy way to shop green.
