First Day of School Outfits Are Most Important

Back to school outfit we got at Kohl's

For a kid, their outfit means everything on the first day of school.  This is especially if they are going to a new school such as Middle School or High School.  It is important to your child as it makes them feel better about themselves when they are wearing their favorite outfit on the first day.  Usually the first week is when the excitement of having new stylish clothes is the highest, when they are meeting their new classmates and making friends.

I don't buy 20 outfits for them, and quite often we still have clothes that fit them so I don't always have to buy a lot of clothes.  I do buy them a couple new outfits every year tho no matter how many clothes they have, just so they can be confident in their new outfits :) And this does make a difference in their confidence when they are making new friends at school.  I remember the feeling of the first day of school and how embarrassed I would feel if I was in an outfit from the year before.  Not that other kids will notice, I am sure they won't, but it would be awkward for any child.  My Mom always had new outfits for me on the first day of school, I can just remember the awkward of the first day of school and I am sure it would have been embarrassing if I was in the same outfit from the year before.

We usually buy our back to school outfits at Kohl's because we love the clothes there and they always have great back to school deals.  We got our first day of school outfits over the weekend and I let them pick out which outfit they would want for the first day.   So these are 2 of the cute outfits we picked out and they were both on sale at Kohl's! All this and I got Kohl's Cash to use on a return trip, I may use it to buy their shoes.  That is the only thing that I didn't get yet.

This is not a sponsored post, I really do believe kids should have at least a couple new special outfits for the first week.  Especially for the first day, I know it helped to boost my confidence in school :) I was not compensated for this post, I really like Kohl's and have been shopping there for a few years now for back to school stuff.  I have saved a lot of money shopping there!
