Believe it or not, both of my daughters are back in school already! This year is a little bittersweet for me because my youngest is going to “big girl school” with her sister and entering Pre-K (3). Yep, my baby is going to school! We are definitely still in an adjustment period, but she is doing well (and I am getting used to it, too!).
To prepare my little ones for a successful school year, I went straight to Land’s End to purchase their backpacks. My oldest daughter has been using Land’s End backpacks for a few years now and I love the quality, function and sizes available. My favorite feature is that there are several sizes to choose from based on your child’s height and workload….even one for my preschooler. Matching lunch boxes are also available in plenty of adorable patterns and you can even personalize each item with monograms, embroidery, heat transfers and numbers to make their belongings stand out in the crowd.
Because I actually already purchased Land’s End backpacks and lunch boxes for my two daughters, I decided to take a look at the new Fall Collection. My girls wear school uniforms, so on the weekends they love to show their sense of style. My oldest chose a Girl’s Long Sleeve Oxford Shirtdress in Pink Stripes to review. We live in New Orleans where it is still reaching close to 100 degrees, so I love that this dress has sleeves that can be rolled above the elbow but adjusted to long length when Fall arrives. The material and construction is quite sturdy and I expect it to last long enough for my second daughter to wear in a few years. The belt gives the dress a sassy look! It is a bit long for her right now, but I ordered a size up because I would like her to be able to wear it throughout the winter. Some of my other back to school favorites are:
- Cozy Cable Knit Leggings (I already purchased a few pair for winter!)
- Stretch Pencil Leg Jeans
- Girls Heart ClassMate SmallHaul Backpack
- Girls Print Featherlight Lunchbox
