I can’t believe the kids start school this week! A new trend is hitting local California school – going back to school, in AUGUST! That left us only 2 months of summer vacation and a mad dash to get the kids ready and prepared with their school supplies and new school clothes. My handsome boy is the hardest to shop for. He is quite particular in what he likes to wear, so we took a special trip to OshKosh B’gosh for his back to school fashion.
When it comes to kids fashion, my handsome little guy has gotten quite particular when it comes to his fashion sense. He prefers “comfort” over anything and has become truly attached to athletic wear. My guess is because of his father’s coaching influence.
We walked around our local OshKosh B’gosh, looking for pieces that called out to him, and he found this awesome MVP shirt. Since he is a baseball player, the MVP was what caught his eye. Since we’re Bronco football fans, the color scheme in the shirt was also perfect. Made of 100% polyester, this shirt is exactly the type of sports wear shirts this guy prefers to wear. A BIG WIN for mom! I was excited that we had found his back to school wardrobe centerpiece to build a couple of great outfits on so quickly.
I love the active wear for boys that are available at OshKosh B’gosh. They had all different pieces to mix and match to create the perfect outfit/outfits for your athlete. They had pieces made of 100% cotton AND some made of 100% polyester – whichever your youngster feels most comfortable in.
My son grabbed his favorite style of shorts that had a fun print and would make for a comfortable and cool “first day of school outfit”.
Next, we decided that adding a sweatshirt and sweats would be a perfect second option. Even during the hottest part of the year, sweatshirts are still needed. The classrooms at my kids’ school are air conditioned, causing them to actually be cold on some occasions. And come Fall, my handsome boy will be all set for chilly days, or even ready to catch a soccer or football game in the breezy evening.
Once kids are back in school, it seems as though school pictures are set up within the first 3 weeks of the year. I wanted to make sure we were ready, so I told him that he needed to select his favorite outfit for his school portrait. While searching through the boys section, he found a great short sleeve plaid shirt that was the exact same color scheme as the MVP shirt. Then he paired the two with a great pair of navy pants with an elastic & draw string waist. With my little athlete being so thin, I love that I don’t even have to alter these pants – he can just tie the draw string waist as tight as he needs to.
I’m excited we were able to create 3 different looks with one basic piece – boy does that save us money. It also gives my son the excuse he needs to wear his favorite shirt over and over again. That is, as long as it’s washed!!! Now if only I can get him to remember to put it in the laundry basket rather than the floor once he has worn it.
