Back to School season is here and it’s time to send the kiddos back in style! For me, Back to School clothes shopping is a cinch since I shop a variety of sales and discount department stores like Cookie’s Kids. I turn to Cookie’s when I want to stock up on great pieces for the boys. Their clothes are always fresh, mature, and on trend. The offer school uniforms, too! I can always count on Cookie’s to provide quality garments at affordable prices. I love their name brand sets. I can usually get some really nice ones for $16 or less. I also like making outfits with separates and basics as well.
The boys were able to preview some of Cookie’s latest styles. With $130 (plus coupon code and cashback from Shop at Home), I was able to create a serious haul. I purchased a combination of sets, separates, accessories and shoes. While Jayden is the only one attending school this year, I had fun shopping for Jax as well.
I got a kick out of this first outfit combination because it looks straight out of Jersey Shore! I couldn’t help but laugh when I got them all dressed. I totally didn’t plan these Vinny and Ronnie inspired get-ups!
The Bay Area Sunset T-Shirt is such a great buy at $6.99 and the Branches Skinny Pants at $9.99. They have a variety of city sunsets and colors in skinnies so I will try to grab them in other varieties. We paired our finds with a Quiksilver Snapback & Levi’s Sneakers that we already had. Love this unique look on our big first-grader.
This outfit was very budget-friendly. The French Toast Basic Tank Top was only $2.99, the LR Belted Cargo Shorts were $5.99, and the Phat Farm “Prism 2” Hi-Tops were $9.99. The NY Yankees Snapback was $9.99. I consider the hat a splurge since it’s not essential but cute and can be paired with another outfit. ;-)
Now to show off some separates. I found a cute travel inspired Get Lost tank by Sean John for $9.99. We paired it with the same pants and shoes from Jayden’s previous outfit. Jaxon was just hanging out in a random outfit (deets on the shirt).
I grabbed another top by Sean John; a nice chambray and cream henley. Love henley’s and chambray so I spent a little more for it at $12.99.
And now for some sets. Loooove them. I try not to be the cheesy mom who buys identical sibling outfits all.of.the.time, but every once and a while I do. I simply couldn’t pass up these Coogi Griffin sets at $16.99. I mean look at how Back to School fresh they look? Jayden’s wearing some Walmart sneaks – see how you can mix and match? And Jax is wearing some black Chuck’s (Jayden’s hand me downs!).
This Nautica Little Fleet Tender set was such a bargain at… wait for it… $9.99… for Nautica, people! There goes the NY snapback again! I don’t know why Jax found this outfit to be particularly tasty. Maybe it was the bright and refreshing lime – he never eats his clothes!
And last, a fun and playful outfit fit for a little boy… or girl! I always say that if we ever have a girl, she will sho ’nuff be wearing the boys’ hand me downs. I’ll just accessorize her hair a bit to complement her outfits. Waste not want not! Anyway, this Superman set was only $7.99. The quality is great and the fabric is thicker than I thought it would be. I just wanted to mention that because some character clothing can be a little flimsy. This set does not disappoint. Oh and the fun Taking Flight baseball cap was $7.99. Jaxon is serious about his accessories, so I had to grab it for him. That cape though! Adorbs!
