my (kids'!) everyday style: back to school style with Nordstrom!

My kids get pretty enthused about back to school shopping... the shopping gene must be a dominate one!  They aren't so worried about name brands (yet!) but are more concerned with cool styles, jeans (that fit!) and of course, the piece de la resistance for back to school: the shoes!  This year we headed to Nordstrom's Anniversary sale to get a big chunk of our fall shopping done.  It never fails to amaze me how much my kids grow over the summer.  It's hard to see how their legs and feet are growing in flip flops and shorts.  But put them in jeans or closed toe shoes and suddenly nothing they already own fits them!

Shoes are always the big ticket item for fall in our house... my son wanted sneakers that were a little "dressy" and my daughter had a one track mind for fall shoes: ankle boots.  Enter the kids section at Nordstrom and we were all set with one stop shopping.  Nordstrom carries all the back to school necessities like jeans and sweaters and tees and tops.  And if you are a parent you know (or should know!) that their kids shoe section is one of the best available.   We easily checked off the "dressy sneaker" and "ankle boots" requests off the list with no problem at all.

My daughter picked out these Hudson skinny jeans (uh, suddenly she looks so old in these!) - she loved how stretchy and soft they are!  And my son picked out a pair of DL1961 skinny jeans for boys - I love how sturdy these feel, since what boy isn't super hard on their jeans?  In addition to jeans and sneakers they both picked out some fun tops... my daughter loves the floral detail at the back of this top and my son thought this Psycho Bunny tee was super cool and soft.  (Are my kids the only ones obsessed with clothes that are "soft"? It's a total deal breaker for them!)

Styles for kids are going quick at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale... but there are still plenty of coats, jeans, shoes and other great back to school options available now - shop quick because prices go UP on August 8!
