Isn’t it crazy how quickly summer always flies by!? I can’t believe we are already nearing the end of July! My kids don’t head back to school until closer to the end of August but by the time July is winding down I always start doing a few simple things to get ready for the start of a new school year. I’m going to share some things we’ve been doing to get organized before school starts in a separate post soon (I like getting ready early instead of doing everything the last week of summer!) but today I wanted to show you some fun, inexpensive clothes I found for my kids at Walmart. We scored and picked up some really cute things!
Kole wears uniforms at his Elementary school but he hates them (ha) so I always just stock up on some soft play clothes for him to change into after school for our afternoon activities. He won’t wear anything “itchy” so soft shorts like these are his absolute favorite. I let him pick out his backpack every year. This cute shark backpack is the one I liked.. but he wanted the giant dinosaur head. :) I know my years of themed backpacks are numbered with him so I just go with the flow and am soaking it up while I still can! My baby is getting so big.
He couldn’t wait to use his new backpack so he has been carrying it around with all of his toys and “friends” in it. :)
(Printed A-Line Dress for big girls/Printed A-Line dress for little girls/Similar jean jacket)
Ad and I both love this darling polkadot dress and it comes in so many colors and patterns. Six bucks you guys! They also have it available in little girls sizes. We bought it in the navy dot too.
(Rainbow Stripe Pullover Hoodie/Rainbow Side Stripe Denim Shorts)
This was Addison’s favorite Walmart find. Cutest lightweight rainbow hoodie and cut offs! These will be easy to mix and match and she has had the shorts on nonstop the past week. Perfect to finish summer and kick off Fall because it stays hot here until November!
(Crochet Tank Top/Boys Graphic Slogan Tee/Side Stripe Shorts)
This Crochet Tank Top comes with some cute shorts and is a darling outfit. Ad loved and wanted the tank but thought the shorts looked a little “young” so we are giving them to her cousin. Really cute outfit for a 7-10 year old!
They looks so happy don’t they? Caught them on a good day. The day before I had them separated and they weren’t allowed to even look at each other! Then 20 minutes later they were best friends again. It’s so funny to me. Ellie gets along with everyone. If it’s her with just Addison they are great. If it’s her alone with Kole they are great. When it’s Ad and Kole together you never know what you’re going to get! They are so close but also know how to push each others buttons and they enjoy doing it more than I wish they did! Ha. Getting the bearded dragon has actually brought these two closer together so that has been one positive about having a lizard join our family.
I could list the negatives but I’m sure you can guess. ;)
Below are some other fun things I picked up for my kids from Walmart and a couple of cute things I found for younger girls (this clear backpack is adorable and so are these pink ruffle slip ons!). I so miss shopping for little girls! I always get the kids’ new rain boots and they have some really cute options in right now for boots too. Have you started back to school shopping yet? I know some kids go back in early August. Feeling ready? Or are you dreading the end of summer? I always have mixed emotions when my kids go back!

Love those A line dresses and would love to get some for my granddaughters. BUT, on the website the sizes given are ‘S-M-L-XL. There is a “size guide:” to get a reference of what the sizes mean, but when I click on the size guide it just tells me “Not Found”.
Do you have any idea how these match up to clothing sizes? I know that in Old Navy sizing my non-infant granddaughter would take S-M-L, (basically a 6, 8, and 10). Do you think that these size up the same? Is there anything helpful on the tags?
Thanks for helping a Grandma out!
Hi Sandra! Aren’t those cute!? So Addison is wearing a Large and she is around a size 11/12. So I’m guessing a Medium would be 8-10? I hope that’s helpful!
Thank you. It does help. The sizing seems a little different than Old Navy. Wish WM had a size guide that was actually there. They put a tab to click on, but the results are nothing.
Did you get anything for the kids at the N sale?
Cute outfits! LOVE the polka dot one. Might have to see if they have that in my younger daughter’s size. Oh and the rainbow hoodie makes me smile, too. Our start of back to school shopping the other day was shopping for scrubs at Walmart for my older daughter for when she starts college next month!. LOL A friend of my girls’ stopped by yesterday with a bag full of clothes she no longer wanted. My younger daughter spied and claimed the cutest red dress with black polka dots. Very retro and VERY cute on her. Yay for when bts shopping comes to you in that way. Haha! Great job getting started on back to school when it isn’t so crazy, Erin. Oh and my girls wore uniforms in middle school and felt mostly the same way as Kole. LOL Have a great day!
I’ve been forbidden from mentioning that school is coming. My 10yo is preferring to live in denial. I’m getting ready as best I can! LOL
Ha ha.. that’s how my kids are too! They are living their best lives and not ready for it to end.. ;)
Oh my gosh Erin – I’ve been following your blog for years and I just can’t get over how BIG Kole looks!!! I remember when he was just a baby!! Crazy how time flies!
Meg!! I know! Isn’t it crazy!? I really can’t believe he’s going into 4th grade next year. He was 2 five minutes ago! Makes me sad but he’s at such a fun age right now. I have to remember to just enjoy him and not look back or I could cry about it all day! Thanks for sticking with me so long. Means a lot. :) xo
