Back-to-school time is an exciting time in our house. I’ll admit — most of that excitement is probably mine. After spending a whole summer cooped up with the kids, I will fully disclose that I do look forward to getting at least one of them out of the house with stuff to do for most of the day. But besides that, my daughter and I love shopping for school supplies and — more importantly — new school clothes.
OK. We can argue about which is more important another time. We just like shopping for clothes, and going back to school is the perfect excuse to do so. So finding a new place to shop is a bit like hitting the lottery around here. Finding Boden and their Mini Boden line feels like a jackpot.
Boden is an amazing clothing retailer in the UK, and their Mini Boden line makes it really easy to outfit your kids in on-trend, stylish clothes that can be mixed, matched and styled in a variety of ways. And if you click this link to their site, you have a chance to get 25% off your order. The Back to School collection will have your kids headed to class dressed to the nines in clothes that will last. Because let’s be honest — as fun as it is to shop for the first few weeks, there’s no point in buying clothes that won’t last beyond that. Mini Boden offers fashion that is great to look at, but also made of durable, quality fabrics and materials. That much become clear when my daughter and I received the two outfits we picked from the collection.
This dress is the stuff my daughter’s dreams are made of. She loves the low fit-and-flare silhouette, and the sequins make her feel fancy. And one of her favorite feelings is definitely fancy. Even better: It meets the school dress code. It’s just long enough (fingertip length is the requirement), and there are no spaghetti straps to contend with. Plus, paired with a sweater or jacket and some leggings, she can still wear it when the weather starts to turn cooler.
The sneakers are another amazing find. Who doesn’t love gold glitter, amirite?
The second outfit can only be described as cute (+ heart eyes emoji, like 6 times). This adorable corduroy pinafore skirt feels like back-to-school perfection, and we paired it with a basic striped tee in a coordinating color. Except that the shirt is anything but basic. The fabric is actually pretty heavy, and it will be an amazing transitional piece when fall starts approaching winter.
Overall, the Mini Boden collection did not disappoint. Between the abundance of colors and patterns, and the variety of styles, from whimsical to sophisticated, it is a great place to outfit your kids as they head back to class.
And this is what you get when you mix a silly kid with cute clothes:
