I just may scream

If I hear one more person say "summer is over" I just may scream!! I am hanging on to summer for as long as I can and enjoying this incredible weather! The weather does get tricky this time of year, so for nights out I am staying warmer on top so I can keep my beloved cut-offs on and adding a little touch of fall with my favorite clogs.

Back to school essentials

Let's face it, the kids don't need much to go back to school. They will still be living in the same things they have worn all summer. But we are all so compelled to shop for "back to school", so what I do is just freshen up the basics, and with boys it is so easy.

An essential for back to school is a new backpack and durability is a prerequisite, my son is incredibly hard on his things so this North Face backpack should be perfect
A new Patagonia, because he lost the perfectly good one from last year...
I'll take one in every color
Nike Elite Basketball shorts                                       Nike Dri-Fit Shirts

Levi's 501                                                                Vineyard Vines Graphic T-shirt

A new pair of sneaks the darker the better because they will be trashed in no time
Nike Free Flyknits
If I had girls I suspect they would love or hate all of these things

Puma Match-Lo                                                                     Adidas Tiro 15

Jansport Right Pack Work Backpack

Ugg Shenendoah Fringe Boot                          North Face Mossbud Pullover
I think these would be so cute with a pair of cut-offs

Word on the Street

Have you heard? Word on the street is skinny jeans are officially OUT. Now, now everyone calm down, do not i repeat do not start donating all of your skinny jeans, which for me is the majority of my closet, skinny jeans will always have a place in our wardrobe but it's time for a little updating.

Straight is the new Skinny

This Cigarette Jean from Zara is my go to jean, I wear them with heels, with sneakers, with boots, day to night, they are hands down one of the most worn jeans in my closet

Old Navy has really stepped up their denim game I am loving all of these and you cannot beat the price of a pair of Old Navy jeans

Forever Fringe

I went crazy last year scouring Ebay for a great vintage suede fringe jacket and I scored in a major way. Fringe is here to stay and if I hadn't found that perfect piece last year I would be buying this fringe number from Forever 21.

This is one of those live in jackets and would be perfect as a back to school piece for that in the know kid
