There has been so much excitement living in London the past couple of years from the Olympics, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Andy Murry winning Wimbledon this year and of course the Royal Wedding and now THE Royal Baby.  I feel myself slowing becoming a Brit and I’m absolutely loving every moment it! The British invasion is everywhere and here are my back-to-school picks the Brit edition!  All kids need a fabulous functional and utilitarian jacket for school and Barbour is a staple in the British wardrobe (seem frequently on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge).  Barbour is known for their waxed jackets that are light and weatherproof while looking so stylish at the same time.  I love the purple printed lining for the girls’ classic jacket and the very cool International jacket for boys.

There is nothing more handy than a great pair of wellies for those rainy days and no one does them better than Hunter.  A graphic Union Jack boot will look great on boys while a bright silver will be so chic on the girls.  It’s such a simple way to make a gray day a bit more fun.  And of course a fabulous bag is necessary for all those books and school supplies.  The Cath Kidston guards backpack is my pick for boys and the print is just so irresistable.  The Cambridge Satchel is the bag for girls this season and I adore the navy blue polka-dot satchel from J. Crew. The British fever is everywhere and there’s no way you want to miss it!
