Back to School with Boden & $250 Giveaway!

There's just something about Back to School shopping that makes it way more fun than any other kind of shopping out there. Whether it was for a new Trapper Keeper (yes, I went there!) or the much deliberated over First Day of School Outfit, I loved this time of year and always looked forward to it.

Now I get to share that excitement with my boys and believe me, it's just as exciting- if not more! Carter will be heading back to preschool later this month and I'm certain he's been talking about meeting his new teacher and seeing all his old friends since his last day of school back in June. Maclane will also be starting a brand new Learn With Mommy and Me class that meets a couple of days per week so between Carter's new 3 days-a-week program and Maclane's new schedule, big changes lie ahead for all of us!

Now that I think about it, does that mean that I get to buy Back to School clothes for myself?

This year, our boys will heading back to school in mini Boden. I've always been a big fan of Boden's clothes for both myself and my minis so it's no secret that I do much of our back to school shopping with Boden. Their pieces are an investment- the quality is superior as it holds up to regular toddler wear and tear and washes well year after year. I have tops and bottoms that Collins, our third baby, will be able to wear that both of his brothers wore years before him. I can't say that about too many childrens' brands out there! 


Not to mention the bright, bold colors and eye-catching prints that can be seen in many of Boden's clothing lines- I think it's easy to see why we love Boden so much!

Here are the boys wearing a few of our favorite stand out pieces from mini Boden's Fall collection. These have become staples in our wardrobe year after year and will pair well as both basic pieces and finishing pieces for clothing they already have in their wardrobe.
