Getting ready for the first day of school isn’t just hard for parents, it’s hard on the kids too. They are worried about looking their best, and trying to stay up to date with the latest styles and trends. I love that my kids wear uniforms to school 90% of the time, it’s really cut down a lot issues we had to deal with in public schools, but the days when the kids get to wear their normal clothing, and express themselves.
When the kids get to wear their normal clothing’s it’s a big deal, especially for my oldest daughter Catie. The older you get the more brand name clothing matters, and she’s at that age. Zappos is the perfect store for us. From back to school clothing, to household items they have it all, and they have all the brands the kids love – Nike, Stride Ride, New Balance, Converse, Keen, Pediped, The Northface, Under Armour, Patagonia, Volcom, Roxy, Tommy Hilfiger, Splendid, and tons more.
We live in a small town, and shop online. Thankfully, Zappos has everything we need, it makes shopping online easy, and even fun with the kids. I know, it sounds crazy, but when you don’t have to jump from website to website, stress levels are down, everyone can look together, and just enjoy shopping..
We were provided with $300 for back to school shopping, and were asked to get at least 3 items for back to school. You might remember our last post about Zappos – 5 Reasons to Shop Zappos.com for Back To School Shopping. Of course I did get more than three items, because I couldn’t help myself. Zappos has so many great brands that both my kids and I like. If you missed our last post, check out a few of the things we got from Zappos for back to school.
My oldest daughter is a Converse FREAK, and when I say freak, I mean that is the only brand of shoes you will see her in, and to my surprise this year they are not black. She went with another color, I’m so proud of her. They’re very pretty, I’m hoping next year she will choose something a little more colorful, lol. That’s my Catie, she loves her Converse Chuck Taylor® All Star® Dainty Ox shoes. They fit great, and are perfect for school because they can be easily dressed up or down. Which is perfect for uniform days, and non-uniform days.
Caite also got a pair of these Levi’sc Juniors 524™ Skinny Stunner jeans. She hasn’t had the chance to wear them to school yet, but she will this Friday. She has saved them for the first day they are able to go uniform free, because she loves the way they fit. I have tried to get her to buy Levi’s® because I knew she would love them, and she does. All it took was trying them on for her to fall in love with the fit. Of course, she’s a super skinny so she can pull off the skinny jeans! I however, well let’s just say I don’t wear skinny jeans, because I cannot pull it off.
Then we have little Mattie, who is the only one of the kids that doesn’t have to worry about uniforms. Well, until next year, and shopping for her has been fun. Here you’ll see Mattie sporting the Lucky Brand Kids Mix n Match Lucky Logo Tee and”href=”http://zapwow.me/B5h0″ target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>Lucky Brand Kids Zoe Jeggings.
My favorite thing is the Skip Hop Zoo Pack Backpack! You can see it in the above picture, but it’s more than super cute! It actually fits Mattie, has two easy to access pockets so she isn’t overwhelmed and loosing things with 12 pockets, lol.
Catie’s birthday is right around the corner, and while we were looking for her jeans, and shoes she fell in love with the Roxy brand, which I don’t blame her it’s a great brand. Since fall is right around the corner I thought it would be a good idea to look at a few things to keep her warm, comfy, and still looking fabulous.
Don’t tell her, but I may or may not have purchased her a few things on this page… I did get her a few things from Zappos, but I cannot tell which ones because every now and then her friends and her will check out the blog. PLUS, she knows her birthday is right around the corner, and this will be the first place she would look if she wanted to sneak a peek lol. Sorry, but I there is TONS of great clothing from brands we know and love.
Here are a few pair of pants I found that I know Vayda or Catie would love! Typically, if it’s bright and colorful it’s 100% Vayda, and she will likely rock it with something that doesn’t match lol. Catie is a little more reserved, and avoids bright colors.
Zappos also has Nike shoes for Vayda, and Converse for Vayda. Oh, and do not forget everything Mattie needed to head back to school. Plus, I found so many other great pieces.
Zappos is a great place to shop it makes shopping for the family easy! It’s not often we can all agree on something in the same store, because we are so different, and at different stages in our lives! Zappos has something for everyone. I even spoiled myself and bought new dishes for our almost remodeled kitchen!
There are so many awesome brands to choose from, but here are a few of our favorite:
- Clothing Brands We Love – Under Armour, Tommy Hilfiger, The Northface, Nike Patagonia, Roxy, and Splendid.
- Footwear Brands We Can’t Live Without – Nike, Pediped, Stride Rite, Keen, New Balance, Converse.
