back to school shopping

"who doesn't love back to school shopping?" - high school me. 

"moms, that's who." - current me.

 

i used to absolutely love back to school shopping. the smells, the hustle and bustle,  all the cute organization supplies.  and the fun new clothes, backpacks, lunchboxes!

now i see dolla dolla bills, ya'll. flying out the window.  we went back to school shopping for nora's clothes a couple of weeks ago.  i try to keep it simple. we go to one store (usually Old Navy) and i spend some time in there making everything coordinate.  that way we get lots of outfits out of each piece.  kind of like a capsule wardrobe, but we aren't that serious about it.    

we tried on everything because girl has grown.  which, in the dressing room, i realized she's grown one way. up.  she was super excited to try stuff on like a big girl. for about 3 minutes.  a few outfits in she was all "this tag hurts" "these pants will NEVER go on" "this is so not me" "i'm getting sweaty".  i realized she actually said most of the things i think every time i try stuff on.  when we left the dressing room she said "whew. i'm so thankful to be back to Nora again."

we have tons of new accessories that pair perfectly with all the back to school clothes.  we wanted to make it easy for shoppers to find some hair accessories that go with every budget and with all the trending colors right now.
