Part of me is in complete denial about this whole back to school thing (& doesn't understand why the aisle at Target has been there for over a month now ... ), the thought of leaving Waverly again is a little too painful for me just yet. Yet then another part of me is ready for fall & all the excitement it brings! I love the change in weather, the falling leaves, how close the holidays are, & mostly, I love the fashion. If only I could figure out how to do all this AND bring Waverly to school with me, I would be all in. :)
I'm super excited to be teaming up with 11 other bloggers today to bring you some back to school inspiration. We are each posting something "school" related today, you can find the list of bloggers joining me at the end of this post. A special thank-you to Keri for setting this up (& a really fun giveaway, also at the end of the post!), I feel lucky to be a part of it!
The fashion theme was a no-brainer for me, I really LOVE fall fashion & am really, really looking forward to jeans & boots again. As a kid, I always loved the tradition of going back to school shopping. I'm pretty sure I stressed about what I would wear the first day for at least a month - you know, it had to be perfect but without looking like you thought about it for even a couple days, much less the month you really did. ;)
Waverly Maye won't be going to an actual pre-school just yet (she still is a little young for most in our area), but she will be headed out each day to our sitter's house & a new class at the kids gym.
I've rounded up some looks I have my eye on for her & also that would be perfect for any of your little ones going to pre-school soon. Boy mamas, that owl backpack might just be the cutest thing I have ever seen!

We recently ordered these yellow hunter boots for Waverly, I cannot wait for them to get here! They are the perfect color for fall & I also love that they work for both girls & boys! I've had a lot of people ask me if Hunters are worth the price, they really are such good quality & way too adorable. We had both the pink & the silver last year which are getting a little snug, but Waverly still loves to wear them despite how long it takes me to pull them over her calves. The other day she begged me to put them on so we could go outside to play in the puddles, I considered letting her sleep in them (for a few days) so we didn't have to go through that again. ;) Bring on the yellow ones.
