Back to School Styles for Kids
That Kid’s Got Style
September has a certain buzz. Remember showing up on the first day of school with your new knapsack and fresh pencil case? Remember gazing around the playground and feeling awesome in your cool new clothes? Whether it’s been years since you packed a school-friendly lunch, or you’re in the depths of trying to get your adorable progeny out the door on time, we all feel the excitement of back to school.
