Back To School Outfits! #BTSwithTarget

We spent the last day at the pool for the season yesterday. (Sad moment in our house)  That means we are officially in full swing of being back to school. Since the temperatures have been warm this August, Mia has been getting a lot of use out of her summer clothes. I know that the weather will be cooling off and that can be at a moments notice. Mia and I took sometime out of our busy weekend to go back to school shopping at Target. I have previously mentioned that she is quite the fashionista. That is an understatement. Taking her shopping is rather interesting because she has strong opinions on what she wants to wear.  As a mom I love shopping at target because they have everything she needs to complete her look and at affordable prices.

Our mornings can be hectic when it comes to getting Mia dressed in the morning. She has been known to change her outfit several times before heading out the door to catch the bus. (we have tried picking her outfits the night before and that hasn’t worked). When we went shopping, we both agreed on finding pieces that she could easily mix and match to create unique outfits that fit her personality and that are comfortable. She loves stylish clothes but the comfort factor is a big one. I am hoping this helps our mornings go smoother.

It has been hard to get Mia into pants (other than leggings) for the past few years. She absolutely loves this pair of Jegging’s! She loves wearing layers as she has told me she gets hot and cold when at school.

Floral Cardigan, lace top and Jeggings

 Mia absolutely loves the sparkly embellishment on the shoulder of this sweater.

Of course she couldn’t resist the adorable Rhinestone Beret! Accessories can elevate an outfit. We both love the brown bow flats that she found while shopping.

What do your kids love to wear to school?

Every little thing is a really big deal.
