back-to-school style

How is my baby girl starting kindergarten this month? I am actually so excited for her, and I also fully expect it to come with a lot of adjustments, challenges, growth, etc. — for our whole family. I'm excited for her because she loves to learn and is eager to read! At Kindergarten Camp I was just in awe thinking that she might meet her future best friend within those walls.

I'm anxious for her because I want her to make new friends and grow in her independence, and because she'll be riding the bus. She gets anxious about new situations and growth usually comes with a side of hardship, so I fully expect the first few weeks to be a little rocky. We played on her school playground a few weeks ago in an effort to remove one unknown variable for her first day. She has shown nothing but excitement so far!

I always loved school, and she does, too. Back-to-school is still one of my favorite times of the year! This year we teamed up with Kohl's and Carter's to score some great back-to-school clothes to help Rooney get even more excited (if that's even possible). One thing I love about Carter's is their sizing by weight/height is really accurate, and I felt confident ordering based on those two factors. And thanks to the great prices, I'm able to put more money in her school lunch account (because I'm pretty sure she will be buying double chocolate milk every day once she see that as an option).

Picking out a first-day outfit was always one of my favorite parts of going back to school. There are so many great options from Carter's — here's what we picked out!


Chambray top: $12 (same as above)
Jogger pants: $12


Rooney has been asking for a one-piece to "match" mine, so when I saw this chambray romper ($20.40), it immediately went in my cart. Her backpack is also from Kohl's.

I don't know whose fashion blog she has been reading (check out those poses!), but I can tell from these photos that she feels great in her new clothes. I wonder which one she'll pick for the first day!
