School Essentials

Brooklyn, New York


School is right around the corner and I’m on board for any reason to shop! I want back-to-school shopping to be a tradition that LS and I will always do together. It’s a great time to bond and grab a few fashionable pieces for the school year. We teamed up JCPenney to showcase a few of our BTS finds as well as dish on good ways to mix and match!

Trend: Skater Skirts

Skater skirts channel festival vibes, focus on pretty russets, military greens and earthy neutrals. This style speaks well to the wanderer girl who loves outdoors. This particular piece is a skort which is perfect for the active girl. Shop it here.

How To Wear

  1. The Skater skirt is completely versatile and can be worn numurous ways. Try top layering with V-neck sweaters and collard button downs peeking through both top and bottom.
  2. Try pairing with knee high socks and boots for the tomboy chic look.
  3. Pair with chunky knit tops, graphic tees or feminine tops followed by a pair of converse for a kid-friendly look.

Trend: Peplum Tops

In the children’s world you can still find a few great cinched waist peplum tops and it looks so good on the mini’s! This is a playful piece which should be paired with a fitted bottom. Think skinny jeans or leggings.

How To Wear

  1. Denim is versatile which is why it is a basic essential. We went with a pair of classic Levi’s which can be cuffed or worn straight leg at the bottom.
  2. Pair denim with graphic tees, chunky knits, button downs or peplums. The possibilities are endless when you have a perfect pair of fitted jeans.
  3. Comfort is key with children so reach for a good pair of sneakers or stylish yet comfortable booties to pull the look all together.
