Back-to-School

Heading Back-to-School in style with affordable looks from Joe Fresh!

Last weekend we had a lot of errands to run in preparation for back-to-school. Some of which consisted of grocery shopping for the kids lunches, and picking up a couple more outfits for them for school. To kill two birds with one stone, while grocery shopping, we stopped by the Joe Fresh Department located in our grocery store. I cannot begin to tell you how convenient this is. I love one stop shopping. It’s just so much easier, and quicker to have everything in one place, especially when we have the kids with us.

Joe Fresh has a great selection for back-to- school, and Fall clothes for the whole family. I have been buying clothes from Joe Fresh for my kids since they were babies. It’s just so handy to add a pair of shoes, or a cute little dress into the grocery cart. I do it all the time, because they are always in need of something. Or, if I don’t feel like heading out, I shop online once the kids are in bed. They offer free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

 

My son is pretty hard on his clothes, so I am always looking for durable, affordable clothes, so I can stock up! This first look from Joe Fresh checks off all those boxes. I am very picky when it comes to buying jeans for him, because he always manages to put holes in the knees. These Grey Skinny Jeans are actually very good quality, and he doesn’t own a grey pair yet, so we had to get them. To go with his jeans, I found this long sleeve crew neck tee, and paired it with a cute black and blue zip-up vest. To complete his look, I found these black lace up boots that will go with everything he wears this Fall.

At least once a week my son loves to wear a track suit to school, and if he doesn’t end up wearing one to school, he puts one on as soon as he gets home. We found this hoodie and sweatpants, both in this light grey colour that matched perfectly together, and he wanted it. He loved that both pieces have pockets too. Each item can even be worn separately as well, so I think he will get a lot of use out of them. It’s also just a nice causal and comfy looking outfit. The hoodie and sweatpants also come in 2 other colours (midnight blue & dark charcoal), so we might go back and get another colour.

What I love about shopping at Joe Fresh is that you can mix and match most of their clothes. It just makes it that much easier to put together looks for my kids. Everything I feel goes so well together. As you can see with this next look, on cooler days he can throw on his vest over top of his hoodie. It not only changes up the look, but he can get more use out of the items I buy if they work well with other pieces.

 

 

Now this little girl is starting pre-school on Tuesday, so she needed so many new outfits. I fell in love with this crew neck print dress as soon as I saw it. It’s just so cute! I love the little bow detail at the waist. I paired it with white tights, and these adorable tall black boots. I love the buckles on the sides, and that the zipper goes down all the way, so it’s easy to get them on and off her. I have been looking for a pair of boots like this for long time, I am so glad I found them at Joe Fresh! To finish off her look, I found these beautiful flower clips for her hair. It came in a pack with 6 clips, in 3 different colours, so I can switch them up according to which colours are in her outfit that day.

Shopping for Back-to-school Clothes at Sears

I can’t believe summer is coming to an end, and next week is the start of school. This September is going to be pretty emotional for me, because I will not just have one child in school, but I will have two! Not only will my son be heading to grade 1 this year, but my daughter will be heading to preschool this Fall as well.  Since both my kids have outgrown their Fall clothes from last year, we headed to Sears to pick out some clothes for Back-to-School.

When we got to the kids section, they were just putting out all the Fall clothes, so we had a great selection of things to choose from. Talk about perfect timing! The staff was so friendly, and eager to help us find what we were looking for, or to pull any sizes so my kids could try them on.

I always look for good quality items when shopping for my kids clothes, because if I don’t, they will wear down too fast. My kids are pretty hard on their clothes, so I want to make sure they last, and I get my money’s worth out of them. Sears is not only a name I trust, but the quality of their clothes is on point.

 

My son loves his new outfit for Back-to-School. I always get his jeans at Sears now, because they sell the Levi’s brand. He loves Levi’s jeans, and so do I. Their quality is amazing! I used to buy his jeans from a kids retailer, and after a month, he would always get holes in the knees. Ever since I switched to the Levi’s brand, he never comes home with holes in his jeans anymore. These ones are in a size 6, and he likes the straight fit. I always find them on sale too. They were only $24.97 (Reg. $41.99)

His grey top is long sleeve, and I picked it up for only $7.97, which was a great deal. I absolutely love his new Softshell jacket! It’s water resistant, and has a fleece lining inside which is perfect for Fall. I also love that it has reflective features on it as well. I got it in a size 6x and it was $34.97.

 

We still need to practice tying his laces, so he wanted a pair of shoes that he could get on and off fast for recess. We found these great Canvas Slip-on shoes for only $14.97, and he finds them so comfortable to walk in.

Fall Jacket for Boys from Sears

 

This little girl was so happy to get new clothes for school. She is so excited to start preschool, and meet some new friends.

She loves jeggings, so I picked up these Denim Jeggings for only $12.97. I don’t think she has wore regular jeans at all. She likes the comfy feel jeggings have, so these ones were perfect. Her top is long sleeves, and I got it for only $3.97 – which was an amazing deal! I think I am going to head back there today and get a few more. You can’t beat that price!

Fall Jacket for girls from Sears

 

Her shoes are the cutest! They are of course pink, which is her favourite colour, but they also light up at the toes.  They are made by Skechers, and they are called Twinkle Toes. They were on sale 40% off. I got them for only $41.99 (Reg. $59.99). I love how they have sequins down the sides, and glitter fabric, so adorable! I also love that they are velcro as well, which makes getting them on and off for her very easy.

Back-to-School Shoes for Girls from Sears

 

Being that I loved my sons jacket so much, I ended up buying the same one for my daughter, just in a different colour. They look so cute in their matching jackets! I got her Softshell Jacket in a size 3T, and it fits her great! It was the same price – $34.97.

 

Well, they are both ready for Back-to-School now! I love that Sears had everything we were looking for. I hate dragging the kids from store to store, plus it so much more time consuming. Having everything we needed at Sears was so convenient. They also have kids backpacks, and lunch bags as well, if you still on the hunt of one of those.

You can even shop online for your Back-to-School. Just head over to the Sears website here to start shopping!
