Back To School Essentials

It’s that time of the year again and my big boy Brooksie is headed to pre-school! They seriously grow so fast…can we slow down!? Since this is his first year, I wanted to make sure we had everything we needed completely covered. It can be a little overwhelming!


Here are some ideas to get you started if you are in the back-to-school shopping mode. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with making a fashion statement or two on the first day!


P’Kolino Mess Eater Monster Backpacks

When it comes to backpacks (especially for all the arts and crafts coming home) it’s all about space. These P’Kolino backpacks aren’t just cute as a button, they are also extremely roomy! PERFECT for a preschooler.


Ugg Australia Kids Casson Sneaker

Ugg Australia is making a SERIOUS statement with their kid’s line! Just like the boots we all know and love, their lace up sneakers are just as durable and comfortable especially for rough and tumble boys on the playground!


johnnie-O Button Downs

If you’re a momma like me, I take picture day extremely seriously. They are so adorable and I love to share them with family and friends. When it comes to dressing my little ones up, johnnie-O is always the cutest and most comfy!


Yoobi Back To School Supplies

When it comes to school supplies, Yoobi is all there is in my book! With so many vibrant and colorful choices to choose from, you can get all your supplies in a one-stop shop. For every Yoobi item you purchase, an item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the US!


Skip Hop Zoo Insulated Lunch Bags

No matter what your child’s favorite animal is, Skip Hop has it. Unicorns, monkeys, cows, whatever. Zoo Bags also come in two different sizes for lunch and for snack time! These insulated bags are also super easy to clean, too! Brooksie is taking his cow on the first day of pre-school!


Curated Tee

So, these shirts are super adorable but there’s a lot more to this company, The Curated Tee. Running as a t-shirt subscription, Curated Tee’s main goal is to expose children to different forms of art to help enhance their creativity. Each month a guest artist creates a design, which is accompanied by a lesson plan and fun games for your child. I’m OB-SESSED with this concept especially for an after-school activity!


Yoobi Pencil Cases

Um, how cute are these!? A case for pencils, crayons, erasers, etc. is essential for organization! And, let’s be honest…you might as well do it in style!

Eco Lunchboxes

These reusable lunch carriers are great for packing lunches (even for adults!) It’s the perfect size for a sandwich and some other snacks on the side. I love the brand as a whole because every product is plastic free, waste-free, bpa-free, and sustainable.
