Summer is my happy place.
I remember as a kid thinking that Summer vacation lasted forever.
Now, as a mother myself, I am grasping on to any extra moment I can get with my kids because I know those couple months go by incredibly fast. (Anyone else feel like time goes faster the older you get?). I treasure every dripping popsicle, pool day and family get together!
That being said, about this time, I slowly start to think about back to school.
Preparation is key and I know some schools start back at the beginning of August or even sooner! Crazy! My one stop shopping for all things Summer AND school is of course, Walmart. Where else can you find the perfect outfit for a last minute Summer BBQ AND a sparkly back pack to give you the first day of school confidence?
I like to find clothing and accessories that can be worn from Summer to the first months of the school year so I’m getting more bang for my buck!
As my family transitions from Summer fun to school schedule, Walmart has my back.
Did you know Walmart has 2 day shipping on MANY items? I love that I can get my order, delivered to my door, lickity split! I also like the option of store pick up when I need something immediately. I just walk in, and pick up my order in the front of the store. It’s a total time saver, which is so important this busy time of year.
Here are some of my most favorite, affordable, picks for carrying my kids through the end of Summer, into the school year.
My boys are all about the basics and all about comfort. That’s why I’m always reaching for the basic tapered Levi’s and a bunch of solid and striped tees. You just can’t go wrong and I love how versatile these options are. These jeans are excellent quality. I love that they have a slimmer profile, without being a tight skinny.
On hot September days, the tees work. On cold December days, we’re still rocking them layered under a sweater. Walmart has great packs of tees in a variety of colors and stripes. I always grab a couple packs because they’re just a staple! Here’s another one of those basic tees paired with some colored knit denim.
These knit denim jeans are a bestseller. They’re definitely a skinnier fit, so maybe size up, but they are softer than typical denim and have some stretch. Great for running around the park or playground. I like the different neutral colors that add some variety to the look! Plus, you can’t beat the price.
We haven’t forgotten about the little ladies!
This flounce sleep camp shirt comes in tons of colors/prints and is so light and breezy. It will withstand the end of Summer heat. I love the feminine sleeve and the fun knot that makes it stand out from all the other tees. Pair it with these basic denim shorts (Can you believe that price?) and you’re good to go! I love that these shorts come in SO many sizes!!! They will truly fit a ton of different body types from little kid to teen!
Now, let’s talk about the most darling romper. I fell in love with this in store, and ended up ordered it later! (I should have just purchased it when I saw it the first time!). Can you even with those details? The ruffle hem is to die for! The denim is super light weight, and it’s easy to get on and off for bathroom break.
I know everyone talked about backpacks for back to school, for obvious reasons, but we use back packs year round. Just last week, we took ours on vacation! If your kiddo’s back pack is looking a little shabby from being drug from bus stop to lunch room to practice last year, be sure to check out some fun styles at Walmart. The quality is great, and the price points are ones you’ll love too!
This tie dye bird design speaks to my pattern mixing, loving soul! It comes in a set with a lunch box as well.
Aren’t the colors just lovely?
If you have a glitter loving gal, my kindergartener died over this option.
Have you ever seen anything more fun? It comes in a few color options too!
Whatever you’re looking for to transition from Summer to school, Walmart has.
Being that I have quite a few kids, I love knowing I can get my kids quality, stylish clothing at prices that won’t break the bank. Plus, they have such an extensive size range, I know it will be one stop shopping for all my ages of children!
Now, let’s live up the rest of summer while being totally prepped for the upcoming school year!
