So far we have shared our top picks for accessories and shoes, and now we are talking clothing. There are so many options for kids and we located the cutest styles as well as brands that are affordable and functional for everyday wear. Here are some of our favorites. Also, feel free to add your favorite brands in the comments section and let us know what you look for when you shop for back-to-school clothes.
Eddie Bauer Kids: This winter stay protected with Eddie Bauer's Girls' MicroTherm'?¢ Down Hoodie. This thin and lightweight hoodie contains European Goose Down to keep your little one warm without feeling too puffy. Avaiable in Raspberry, Steel, Key Lime and Dark Marina, this jacket also has wonderful stretch panels and zippered pockets for easy movement.
Jordache Jeans: A classic brand, Jordache has some fun and affordable jeans for your little girl. At a recent preview of the kids line, I loved the vibrant selection of colors as well as how flexible the material was that is ideal for both school and play. The jeans also feature 5-pocket styling and are made of 98% cotton / 2% spandex.
Children's Place: We are huge fans of the selection, value and price points from the Children's Place, and recently had the chance to preview some fall items at the store (more on that in a future post). While shopping, I loved checking out their unique selection of long sleeve tops with some of my favorites being the sequin stars sweatshirt and the shirred graphic tee. They also offer a selection of pieces for school uniforms (skirts, shirt, vests) that can be mixed and matched for back to school season.
Barbie Apparel: A fun line for toddlers, the new Barbie Apparel features ruffles, bows, prints and of course Barbie's signature character. A line that encourages young girls to play dress up as well as rock their own style, I loved the collection of leggings, tees, tunics and frilly skirts that are really appealing to young girls.

The boutique showcases a unique line of jersey dresses like the Winter Water Factory Trees Tennis Dress, Joah Love Lola Tunic Dress, and the Misha Lulu Hoot Hoot Dress.
Monkeybar Buddies: Girls love to run around and be active just as much as boys. As they get older it is important to be conscious of covering up where Monkeybar Buddies offers the perfect solution! Their collection of comfortable and stylish shorts, leggings, capris and shirts allow girls to wear these shorts under their skirts or dresses for some worry-free protection. We also love their vibrant collection of shorts with funky patterns that fit girls up to size 16.
Children's Place: For boys, the Children's Place has fun graphic teesand I really love the skull graphic tee and themotorcycle graphic tee. Since it will be cooler soon, we also love their uniform v-neck sweaters and their uniform cardigans. For pants, we love their chino pantsand thefive-pocket pants in husky.
Wes and Willy Boys Clothing: Wes and Willy clothing is a fun line boys clothing (full review soon) that is sold in specialty boutiques across the country. We love their speciality tops like the British bulldog jie jie crew and their polished dress shirts.
