Oh Boy! Back-to-School Style

Hi … CeeCee here.  Coquitlam Centre has been buzzing for the past few days and my guess is that people are preparing for school … despite the fact that teachers’ strike is still on. I’ve been running around shopping for my two little monkeys and I’d love to share with you the outfit I bought for my son – he loves it so much, he can’t wait to go back to school to show it off!

Shirt & Sweater

Almost every boy has a superhero that they admire and for my little one, that’s Captain America.  So it was a no brainer to get him a printed tee with his favourite superhero on it. I’m pretty sure this shirt is his favourite part of the whole outfit … he told me that wearing it makes him feel like a superhero – how cute! To pair it with, I picked out this grey striped sweater as a layering piece … simple and warm.

Available at Old Navy: Shirt $14.94*, Sweater $19.94*

Jeans

For the bottoms, I bought him a pair of comfy jeans from Old Navy. I went with a darker wash denim since it is fall … plus, it doesn’t show the dirt!

Available at Old Navy $24.50*

Jacket

I love this softshell jacket in a windproof, water-repellent functional fabric … the perfect outerwear for an active boy that loves being outside, even when it’s pouring rain.

Available at H&M $39.95*

Shoes

As a mother of two young children, I love slip-on shoes for my kids, since it’s incredibly hard to juggle so many things in the morning – dressing the munchkins, making breakfast and lunch, making sure all their books are in their backpacks … the last thing on my mind is remembering to tie their shoelaces. With slip-ons, I know for sure that the shoes are on, and I won’t have to worry that he’ll trip on his laces.

Available at Old Navy $16.94*

Backpack

Whhhhaaaaaaaweeee! Which child doesn’t like Angry Bird? My little munchkin has been obsessed since that game came out. So to finish up the outfit, I bought him an Angry Bird backpack that features an outer compartment with a zip and adjustable padded shoulder straps.

Available at H&M $24.95*
