Back to School Prep: 5 Adorable Outfits for Girls

We’re heading into the last days of summer, believe it or not. Sometimes I wish we could just freeze time before our kids grow up too fast! 

But with the end of the long, lazy, sunshiny days of the season, we have autumn to look forward to and the children’s excitement of advancing to the next grade.

And back-to-school means back-to-school shopping! Start now and get your top picks for the school year. Nothing gets your child more excited for the school year than picking out new school supplies and finding the cutest outfits around.

The Basics

For a successful wardrobe win, you need to have those items that are adorable and versatile. Pick items that look great with two or three outfits, not just one.

One of my favorite staples is the flutter tee. Fantastic with a pair of jeans, but also simply lovely under a jumpsuit or pinafore, with that ruffly beauty of a sleeve peeking out.

The Best Playground Outfit

For this killer outfit, pair a polka dot flutter with a play-friendly pair of stretchy jeans. Accessorize with a headband or a bow and your girl’s favorite playground sneakers.

If you want to really go big, pick up a pair of Disney polka dot tennis shoes to highlight the Minnie-magic of the polka dot on her flutter sleeve.

Jumpsuit Fun

Now take that flutter sleeve top and combine it with a super fashionable jumpsuit. Since jumpsuits hit the fashion world a couple of seasons ago, they’ve become the go-to for casual charm or for accessorizing into fancy wear for a night on the town. Jumpsuits are what you need them to be. A blank canvas to show off your personality,

The polka dot flutter would look adorable with this olive green jumpsuit.

For a little variety, pick up a stripey top and a beautiful mauve ruffle jumpsuit. This outfit’s wonderful color and ruffle criss-cross straps will delight your daughter. Even better, it has usable pockets and protects her legs on the playground.

Top with a bow for extra adorableness. 

This top will also look fabulous with a pair of shorts or capris, so don’t be afraid to mix and match your daughter’s wardrobe.

From Jumpsuit to Jumper

Speaking of pockets, and turning her wardrobe into a fashion workhorse, check out this corduroy jumper that’s available in a variety of colors. Her striped flutter top will pull double duty with this outfit, or you can choose the classic black version pictured here.

The v-back means she can dress with ease, and the pockets are perfect for all the treasures she finds on her adventures and for keeping school supplies on hand. Fluid, fun, and lovely, cozy corduroy is a perfect school outfit.

A Fun Twirl Dress

Another great fashion basic is a soft and stretchy dress in navy

Why? Because the color flatters just about everyone, and its simplicity allows for adding a pair of fun tights or thin leggings underneath that expresses tons of personality. Hearts? Cat faces? Stripes? Yes, please! Whatever she chooses, your girl will love her look.

Not only does this flowy dress twirl perfectly, but its soft, stretchy material also makes it comfortable for everyday wear. And once again, the practical v-neck back design makes dressing easy and the pockets add function to her fashion.

When the weather cools, this dress looks fantastic with a cute pair of boots!

Perfect Pinafores

With so many luscious colors to choose from in our pinafore collection, you’ll have a hard time choosing just one. 

One of our favorites is this softer than soft green pinafore with hearts. The ruffle straps and cheerful hearts add an adorable flair to your girl’s school-day look. Style it for fall school pictures with a ruffle shirt, tights, and boots.

The French terry cotton is so soft and cozy, she’ll be comfortable all day long. 

With jumpsuits, jumpers, pinafores, and twirl dresses, there’s a lot of choice in a variety of colors to amp up her personal style. Whatever she chooses, she’s bound to love her new wardrobe basics.


Wishing you a fantastic, happy school year!
