Go Back to School With Old Navy

My children have enjoyed a fluid schedule this summer.  Costumes, tulle-explosions, and questionable interesting accessories have comprised Lucia’s everyday attire, while Adrian has been sporting play-clothes and homemade tie T-shirts.  Nonetheless, both of my littles are growing out of everything at lightening speed.

As the first week of school rapidly approaches, it’s time to tuck away the costumes into the weekend only box and start sewing something special.  It’s also time to search for bargains on back to school shopping that won’t compromise my mini fashionista’s Kindergarten Style.  I’m looking for comfortable pieces that can be interchanged and ones that will keep my dashing dude looking fly as he enters mommy-and-me nursery co-op for the first time.  Thankfully, Old Navy’s on trend with their current back to school collection at prices that won’t break this mama’s bank.

Old Navy’s girls’ collection boasts bold colors, graphic patterns, stripes, polka-dots, animal prints and beautiful embellishments.  The sort of fun stuff that my little girl adores in her clothing.  Since Lucia’s prevailing taste includes skirts and dresses, I can see her pairing this turquoise polka dot skirt and comfortable leggings with pieces that she already owns during the first week of school.

I’m ready to embrace a more sophisticated school-boy-cool look for my little man this fall.  I love that polo shirts, dark jeans, plaid, and graphic sneakers are in style this season.  I like my boy with a little bit of prep and a little bit of funk.  I think that a collection like this will help to show off my little boy’s swagger.

The best thing about the above pieces is that they are all $10 and less a pop!

Happy back to school shopping y’all!

  1. Hi! I didn't even know Old Navy had a kids line of clothing! I can't wait to check it out. Thank you! Sarita

  2. I bought a few shirts for my little guy and they didn't last like I had hoped….maybe it was just the particular shirts? Have you had a problem with shrinking?

    • Hi Cate,
      I haven't encountered a problem with shrinkage after washing – perhaps it was just the particular shirts? I wonder if purchasing a size up would help? Thanks for visiting!

  3. I'm so glad I read this post! My daughter had a tunic dress like that pink/red striped top from H&M that she loved and outgrew it. I know it's not a dress, but I think I'm going to get that shirt from Old Navy!

  4. Hi Anne, That stripped crew neck Tee was one of my daughter's favorite. I love the color combo too. thanks for your comment!

  5. We love Old Navy, it's our first stop whenever we need to revamp the wardrobe! Their toddler girl jackets are one of my favorite things there.
