Back to School already! This time of year is always bittersweet, I’m so proud of my little human and amazed at how much she’s grown. But why does she have to grow up so fast?? I still recall the first day of kindergarten like it was yesterday…and now off to grade 3! Oh my, another grade.

Back to school shopping is something I looked forward to all summer as a kid. And the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree here, Marley had such a blast picking out her new outfits, shoes and back pack.Back to School look with Joe FreshBack to school in Joe FreshSpeaking of back packs, this year we chose one that was large enough to fit snow pants and all the gear PLUS lunchkit and homework.  We found this Roxy one at Triple Flip here in Calgary, which is one of Marley’s fav stores! I just found out we can now shop online at Triple Flip too, which makes it uber convenient.Back to school look with Joe Fresh GirlsBlack Girls Tee with Pink Sequin HeartMarley chose this adorable ensemble from Joe Fresh a couple weeks ago. This has been my “go-to” for her clothes since she was a baby.  I can’t get over how cute and trendy everything is at such an awesome price point. I often buy the other kiddos in my life fun clothes from here too!Black Girls Shirt with Pink Sequin HeartI am personally obsessed with hearts (and sequins), so when she picked out this top I couldn’t argue. She also wandered off and came back with this super cute kitten eared headband which I think will make anyone smile!Kitten Eared HeadbandBack to school look for Joe Fresh Girls ClothesAlthough Marley does love the cool look, she refuses to sacrifice her comfort. Anyone that knows Mar is well aware that she is rarely “right side up”, meaning she is usually in cartwheel or handstand mode. It would be easier to give a cat a shower then to put Mar in stiff jeans, so I needed to find an “in-between” option. These jeggings are perfect and we bought them in both colour options. By the way, make sure to sign up for Joe Fresh newsletters – they have frequent online sales that can’t be beat!Black Toms for Girls and White Ladies ConverseIndoor shoes have always been Toms (also purchased from Triple Flip). She doesn’t care for laces so she can easily slip these on and off for recess, where every minute counts! This year we chose basic black to go with every outfit.Joe Fresh Girls and Aritzia ladies grey dress
Aritzia Grey DressI love the basics too, and this grey sleeveless dress from Aritzia is so easy to wear. I can dress it up or add some layers. White converse sneakers go with everything and I find these low profile ones from SoftMoc seem just a bit daintier than some of the other sneakers I own.Joe Fresh Girls and Aritzia ladies grey dressJoe Fresh Girls and Aritzia ladies grey dressHope all your kiddos have an awesome first week back! Stay tuned for more of Marley’s back to school wardrobe!
