Back to School Shopping With Boys

This past weekend Tallen and I went on a shopping trip to pick up a few essential items for school. I like to keep things simple and comfortable when it comes to “fashion.”

We do most of our shopping at TJ Maxx, but I also like to shop at Academy Sports and Kohl’s.

Here are my top fashion essentials. Boy approved!

Athletic Pants and Shorts – Nike or Adidas, we love most brands. They are always “in” and not restrictive – which is important for boys who like to rip and run.

DriFit Tops – Again, most brands will do. I prefer the DriFit material because they wash well and maintain a new look – a key attribute when passing down clothing items to Trace.

Athletic Footwear – Comfortable gym shoes are a boys best friend. We picked up this pair from our local Kohl’s.

Fleece Jacket – Cool Fall mornings? Chilly, Friday night football games? A warm fleece jacket is a must.


Dress Slacks + Top – Last and certainly not least, a simple pair of khaki and a polo shirt is a must for school pictures, concerts, etc.

What are some of your fashion favorites for boys?
