School, and schedules, and all things FALL (!) are right around the corner. Nico started pre-k last week and L starts 4th grade next week. We've got a weird limbo week where summer is still sort of happening but also, I'm packing school lunches and the backpacks have made an appearance from the depths of our hall closet. I'm actually excited about a new school year. Blame it on my love of Fall or 'You've got Mail' but I really do like this time of the year. And, I really like shopping for new school supplies! 

1. A bento-style lunch container - My kids are big snackers. Bento-style boxes let me send them to school with a little bit of all of their favorites. They get a variety of foods and most of it gets eaten - its a win all around! These are another favorite!

2. Our favorite sneakers for kids - New Balance kicks have been our go-to for school sneakers. They have all the colors and styles we could want, including the fun collaborations they do with J. Crew. We usually get the no-tie styles for the early elementary years! 

3. Cartwheel shorts - For my dress-lover so she can be totally comfortable (and covered!) at school. 

4. Fun socks to brighten up uniforms - L's school requires uniforms but they allow fun socks so the kids can show off some personality. I love to stock up on fun, knee-high socks for her school wardrobe.

5. Backpack flair - Elementary school girls LOVE to personalize their backpacks (and tablet cases!) with keychains. The cuter, fluffier, and more glittery - the better!  

6. An insulated lunchbox - We've gone through our share of lunch boxes and surprisingly, the cheaper ones have held up just as good as the not-as-cheap ones. So, this year we let the kids pick up their favorite choice at Target. As long as it's insulated and holds their bento containers, we are good! 

7. A cool water bottle - That keeps water cold all day! L's school has water fountains with built-in filtered water bottle fillers. Sending them with a reusable water bottle is the perfect choice. The kids each have a smaller, character version but I'm digging this fun mint color in a larger size.

8. Whimsical school supplies - School supply lists here come pretty standard but specific. It leaves very little options in the way of fun school supplies. I picked up these macaroon erasers to add a little whimsy to L's pencil box.

9. Fun & quality backpacks - We love Pottery Barn backpacks! They hold up for several years and are the perfect size to hold all of the stuff the kids bring home. Plus, they are full of pockets and pouches! L.L. Bean is another quality favorite if you're looking for something a little more basic but still full of quality. 

I hope you guys are soaking up the end of summer like we are! Here's to some amazing first days of school!
