I feel like this summer flew by but I know the kids are excited to go back to school and see their friends once we get back from Italy. Back-to-school time can get a little stressful, with the classroom lists, clothes shopping, and just making sure they have whatever they need, it’s a lot! I’m making it easy on myself this year and doing a lot of shopping online while we’re abroad, so I put together The Honeybee Back-to-School Shopping Guide to take the stress off you mamas, too.
Here’s what the kids and I have picked out so far- you know Ava had to give her stamp of approval on what I’m sharing…
Girl’s Picks from Bloomingdales
This Pink Denim Jacket is perfect for the transition from summer to fall! Great for chilly mornings during A.M. drop-off.
Keeping a water bottle in her backpack is a must, so I love these Swell water bottles since they’re completely insulated and will keep her drinks cool. The Tie-Dye Print Bottle is so cute, or stick with a Solid Pink Bottle!
This Puff-Sleeve Top would be so cute paired with shorts or jeans. It also has the cutest eyelet lace print.
These Adidas Sneakers look super comfy but are also cute and will match with everything!
Boy’s Picks from Bloomingdales
For an easy school outfit, I love this Tee and Shorts Set! It’s great for playing at school and it’s only $40 for the set.
Joggers are always our go-to for when Luca wants to be comfortable, so I’m definitely grabbing a few colors of these Basic Jogger Pants! A great piece for fall too when it gets a little chilly.
These Slip-On Sneakers are a great shoe for summer and he’ll continue to wear them back to school! Easy to slip on for those mornings running late which feels like most around here.
I love these Adidas Sneakers for back-to-school since they have a velcro strap at the top that holds his laces in place.
Back-To-School Nordstrom Finds
This Rolling Stones Tee needs to come in my size though!
I like to grab a few jackets for the kids before the school year starts so we’re set when the weather gets colder. This Denim and Hoodie Jacket is so cute and would be so adorable paired with dresses or shorts!
If you’re looking for a pair of sneakers that go with everything, these Nike Sneakers are neutral and perfect for the school year. They’re also on sale right now!
I’m trying to invest in some good basics for my kids that will last the entire school year. This Ribbed Long Sleeve is something I know Eva will wear all year and will be great for all seasons!
Backpacks & Lunchboxes
It doesn’t rain much in SoCal, but if you live somewhere wet this Waterproof Backpack is a must!
I love this Embroidered Backpack for all of its cute graphics at the top, but it’s also black so it won’t get super dirty and will last the entire school year.
This Hard-Case Lunchbox is such a great back-to-school find! It’s vacuum sealed so it keeps food fresh and ensures no spills will be going on. One of my faves in this back-to-school shopping guide.
Ava loves that this Lunchbox is sparkly, but I also think it’s so cute because it has a little compartment on the inside where I can add a note for her to read during lunch.
