I remember when I was a child I'd go back to school shopping with my mom in July (usually at the start of the Nordstrom sale). I would get sweaters, long pants, coats, and boots. I'd prepare for my first day of school outfit pretty much the whole summer and that usually involved all fall items. In Oregon, we always start school in September and we have really nice falls (all the way through mid October at least). Needless to say, I would always end up so hot on my first day because I just had to wear my new fall clothes. The 2nd day of school, I would already be back in my summer clothes!
Lele For Kids - Back to School Shop
McKinlee will be heading off to pre-school this year and I think these adorable Lele For Kids hand smocked dresses will be perfect for her first day! You might remember them because they are the same black and white style seen here but in red. How darling would they be for picture day?! These would work well into fall with a cute cardigan over them when it starts getting chilly. I absolutely love these dresses (and all of Lele for Kids dresses). They are affordable and they wash up really nicely! I can't say enough great things about them.
Lele For Kids is your place to go for picture day and back to school outfits. My favorite shop (which should come as no surprise) is their smocked dress shop. They are all under $25! Check them out and let me know what you think!
