Are you ready for back-to-school season?! Part of me is dreading it because it means the end of summer and my kids back at school. But part of me loves it because it means… my kids back at school ๐Ÿ˜‰ It also means fall weather, new clothes, getting cozy, pumpkin patches, and hot chocolate! To celebrate, let’s check out what’s NEW for back to school styles!

Carter’s has always been a go-to brand in this house. I canย always rely on them for cute finds, wardrobe staples, hot trends, and quality clothing. Did you know they sell over 400 million pieces of children’s clothes each year?!

2014 Fall Styles with Carter’s:

  • Activewear / “Ath Leisure” – I think my kids wear this type of clothing most often so I’m happy to see it! Positive messages, versatile and easy to layer, mesh fabrics, and super comfortable!
  • Camo – I’m not usually a fan of camo, but really love what Carter’s has done with it! It’s not just for boys anymore–find it in leggings and dresses for the girls! Mix up the patterns this fall!
  • Tomboy Chic – This is totally my girl. Again, it’s all about the mixing – pair a feminine lace skirt with a sweatshirt or a pair of camo leggings with a sweet, floral top.
  • Vintage Prints – Another one I love and it’s all the rage right now! Smaller, sweet graphics like ponies, puppies, and flowers. Must see: the vintage-printed rainboots!
  • Fresh Plaids – Something traditional turned bright and fresh. Fun colors, including a touch of pink.

Carter’s Fall Styles on Rebecca (Kind of like their Camo Cutie, but I went with leggings instead):

I LOVE both outfits so much!!! To think I wasn’t a camo-print fan – and those jeggings are adorable with the floral sneakers and pink jacket. I do want to point out that online I thought those camo jeggings were more of a gray color, but they are not. Typical green camo.

When I dressed Rebecca, she CRIED when I went to put on a white t-shirt because she thought it meant I wasn’t putting on the jacket. Seriously. She likes to pick out her clothes, but has never cried about it like that–she kept crying, “JACKET! Jacket, mommy, jacket!”

Ryan’s layered look with the fresh plaid and the hooded sweatshirt is so handsome, I can’t even stand it. This kid is picky about his clothes, too (they HAVE to be “comfy”), and he told me he loved this outfit.
