We are gearing up for Back-to-School shopping and have been finding so many exciting trends - so much so that we need four posts to fit everything in. For this one, we will be covering the accessories (cool paper, lunch boxes, backpacks, socks, headbands, etc), part two will be all about shoes for the kids, part three clothes for the kids and part four will be all about you - (moms also need some TLC to get through this hectic time of year). Here is what we love for accessories this fall.
Lands' End: Featuring on-trend patterns and cute characters, Lands' End is not only a stylish brand for your kids but one that offers functionality. We also love the added features like a sturdy bottom built, extra lash strap, reflective trim, adjustable sternum strap and cool loop where kids can clip on their lunch box.
Hello Kitty: We are huge fans of this cute character and Macy's is stocked up with various models to send your little girl off to school in comfort and style.

Klean Kanteen: BPA-free water bottles from Klean Kanteen are a great solution for eliminating single use water bottles that can easily be packed into your kids' lunch bag. We also love their unique designs from their kid line that also includes bottles and a classic sippy.
KEEN: KEEN Kids outlasts the youngest of adventurers. The new Fall collection is protective, durable and supportive with easy closures and touch of whimsy for fun! We love the Concord Crew Socks and their smooth, hidden wunderseam and left and right specific design. Labeled "left and right" or "L" and "R" - provides a unique opportunity for kids to learn!
5. School Supplies:
AstroBrights: We love this high-quality paper brand that features over 23 bright colors that is perfect for the home, school or the office. They also have a fun campaign on their Facebook page called "Make Something AstroBrights!" and "Give a Brighter Year!," that aims to get kids and families more excited about arts and crafts (prizes include $100-500 gift cards and a grand prize of $30,000 in school supplies to the school of your choice).
Staples: Staples is our go-to resource for back to school and we are loving their unique selection of items like trendy binders, vibrant folders, and unique ways to organize with apple tape dispensers.
Crayon Holder: More love for Etsy - we are really into this Organic Wooden Semi Truck where your kids can hold 24 of their crayons in this beautifully crafted piece.
Stay tuned for part two where we cover the back-to-school shoes for your kids.
