I gave up picking out my children’s clothes a long time ago, so when it comes time for back to school shopping, I let them have free reign at Goodwill. I know my dollars will stretch so much farther than at the mall. And they find the name brands they want at the prices I love.
Chloe is in middle school and she has a style all her own. Her look starts with the ethnic print black and white top from Forever 21.It’s perfect for the warmer days and she’ll probably layer a hoodie over it when the weather turns cooler.
Distressed jeans are a do. You can dress them up or down and they are an every day staple for students. This pair from Gap would have been around $70 when new (even with the distressing). She lives in skinny jeans so I love finding her favorite brands she at Goodwill.
She keeps her accessories simple – a colorful backpack from Xhiliration (a Target brand) was brand new and is big enough to fit all of her books and binders.The vintage blue suede oxfords are a unique choice, but she fell in love with them and they have a good sturdy sole and will be perfect for running around.
