I can’t believe we’re already talking back to school! I know for some people school doesn’t start for a couple months, but for my kiddos it’s basically a month away! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through our summer. At our school, the school year ended at the end of May and the kids start up again mid-August. So I’m starting my back to school Affordable Friday posts now! Plus, these outfits can also be worn all summer long if your kiddos just started break!
Look 1 – Overalls and Comfort
I have to start with these absolutely adorable overalls. They’re mostly for younger kids. They come in sizes 12 months up to 5T. Molly is in the 5T. But I just love love love overalls on her so much and this pair with the cute daisies are just precious! Click this link because it also comes in a few other styles. I love the pink ones with the ruffle detail on the straps so so so much. They’re all only $13.98! Such a steal and such great quality.
For Riley’s outfit, I was really focused entirely on comfort! I got the shorts in a five pack for around $33. Which means each pair of shorts is only a little over $6. They’re super comfortable and easy for him to pull up and down and since we still have some issues with not having accidents, that’s super important. They come in sizes 4 to 18 and also in husky sizes.
Little boys t-shirts can get kind of boring in my opinion, so I really like that this one has a cool detail on the sleeve but not like a dinosaur character on front. Ha! Don’t get me wrong I’m all for the kids having their fun playful clothes, but I’m just kind of over the characters so if I can find something cute with a cool design, I’m all for it.
Look 2 – Plaid Shorts and Patterned Tee
I also love love love this outfit on Molly. The shorts come in a two pack for $13.96. Making each pair under $7. I just adore the plaid pair. There’s also really cute neutral chambray pair that will work for pretty much any top. But I paired the plaid ones with this cute little lace sleeve top. I got it for both Molly in both light blue and white. Just because it’s such a great little top to pair with so many things. This is the same top that she’s wearing underneath the overalls.
Riley is wearing another pair of shorts that I got in another five pack for only $22.41. That makes each pair of shorts around $4.50! I also love how there is a bunch of different ones for different looks like camo, navy, and khaki!
With the shorts, he’s wearing a cute little blue t-shirt that actually came as a two pack with a yellow and blue flannel for only $9. Yep, $9 for both! I love how they look together, but they’re also really cute separate and in these pics I just tied the flannel around his waste since it’s warm right now so he won’t be using the flannel until fall comes around.
Also linking Riley’s shoes for you guys! I love that they’re blue and they stay on easily and I love that he can slip them on and off but also have a good fit (there is velcro on the sides). They are under $10! They have 40 really great reviews so read the reviews if you want other parents opinions!
Look 3 – Molly’s Darling Dress
Oh my gosh, how cute is this dress! This one is for older girls (well, older than the overalls option) and comes in sizes 4 to 18 and plus sizes. It is so so so so darling and under $15. This would be such a cute school day picture dress or first day of school dress! Molly is wearing a 6 in all theses oufits EXCEPT for this dress. The 6 was too big but the 5T is perfect! So size down in this one.
Look 4 – School Uniform
Last but not least, I wanted to show a school uniform type of look since I know a lot of kids wear these to school as well. School uniforms can be expensive on other sites! Both this top and bottom you can get for under $10 each! Even if your child doesn’t have a school uniform, I just think the little tunic top is so darling and also would be really cute for school picture day.
I also want to link my outfit for you guys just in case you’re wondering. I’m wearing denim shorts from Sofia Vergara’s line that are only $25 and so flattering! I love love love the cut of them! Then I’m wearing a $12 Free Assembly top. I love Free Assembly because they are a brand that really cares about sustainability and the quality is so good! I have this top in both the blue and white striped and then the bone color! The sleeves and squared neck and so darling. Size DOWN in it! I am normally a size medium but I got a small in this top.
Can’t Believe We are Half-Way Through Summer!
Hope this is helpful for you guys! Schools gonna be here before we know it so I wanted to provide some options for you guys so it’s one thing you can check off your list and not have to worry about this at the end of summer.
