Even with the first month of Kindergarten under our belt, school is all I can think about. From what to pack her for lunch, what school supplies we might have overlooked, to what clothes Sophia will be wearing. Back-to-school shopping is no joke, but I couldn’t be more excited that it’s finally our time to really experience it now that she’s starting “big school.”
I remember my Mom taking me back-to-school shopping and I remember loving every minute of it. The idea that I was able to pick out new outfits, some on my own and some with a little encouragement from her, and new shoes and accessories… it’s an exciting time for a girl!
So it’s no surprise that I would be excited to start this tradition with Sophia when it meant so much to me in my childhood. For this back-to-school shopping trip we headed to Kmart. I decided to have some fun with our shopping trip and told Sophia that she could pick out a complete outfit on her own and I would pick out an outfit for her also. She loved the idea of picking out her own complete outfit, from head-to-toe… you can see the outfit she chose here!
This week you get to see the adorableness that I found in the Kmart Back-To-School Apparel Collection.
As soon as I spotted this Basic Editions Ruffle Chambray Shirt Dress, I knew it was my pick. There was even a cute shirt and skirt combination outfit, but the dress, with that adorable belt, just had me at first sight. I knew it would look adorable on Sophia. So after 2 minutes in the girls’ section, I had picked my outfit of choice… hers took a bit longer.
Accessorizing this adorable dress was easy as well. Right in the girls’ clothing was an Accessory shelf that held necklaces, hair bows, hats, and purses. I thought the cute pearl and heart necklace/bracelet set would look perfect with the chambray and a black headband was the perfect accessory to top it all off.
The boots, oh the boots! Kmart had these adorable Piper & Blue boots in both black and gray [I chose black, Sophia wanted gray – you see who won that argument]. During our shopping trip the shoes were Buy One, Get One Half Off so we scored on adorable shoes – I was overwhelmed with the great selection!
Would you believe this entire look, from head to toe, cost us under $25!?! In fact, it did! The dress was on sale for $10, the shoes were only $7.49 [BOGO 1/2], the bracelet and necklace set was a mere $4.99 and a pack of headbands was less than $5.00!
I am just in love with this look on Sophia. It’s so sophisticated, so “fancy” [her words!], and just absolutely adorable with her new haircut. It’s definitely a back-to-school fashion choice that I know she’ll be wearing very often this school year.
Would your daughter love this Chambray Ruffle Dress?
How about those boots!?
