alright party people. in approximately 30 days (not that I’m counting or anything) i’ll have TWO children in school. You read that right, i’ll have a whopping three mornings a week to work on my mom-bod, grocery shop, and try to squeeze in every single doctor, nail, and lash appointment into a three hour time span. oh and to catch up on the television thats too inappropriate for my children, and too trashy for my husband.

i know sending your kids off to school is bittersweet, i know i should feel “all of the feels” but the girls are so damn excited to go- its hard not to get swept up in the excitement right along with them. plus i LOVE back to school shopping (shoes, clothes, and supplies). K is starting preschool. A play based preschool. Which means i need to send her in clothes that will go the distance- they need to hold up under the most extreme paint, dirt, and mud pit circumstances. they’ll be washed approx. 10,000 times for about 10,000 various stains. Meanwhile Lex is starting kindergarten- so she wants a more grown up wardrobe- but one that’s still playful and fun (and one that she can have an opinion about). they both also need shoes- of the closed toe variety. and i dont want to compromise style for functionality- thankfully we happen to know of a brand that does it all.

enter Boden!

we LOVE Boden .  i’m a huge fangirl of their tights, knits, and everything in between. everything just seems to hold up- and I’ve passed more than a few things from lex to k. i LOVE that you can mix and match just about anything on their site and you can’t go wrong! so with the girls going back to school and back to cool heres a glimpse of what they’ll be rocking this year.
