It’s that time of year again! Back-to-school clothes shopping with my daughter. I can’t believe she is entering 1st grade in just a few weeks. The first clothing store we usually head to is The Children’s Place. They have a great selection of age appropriate clothing for boys, girls, toddlers and infant. Not to mention fantastic prices! Over the weekend we visited Grandma and went shopping at The Children’s Place at The Poughkeepsie Galleria.
We had a great time looking at all the fabulous clothing for back-to-school. My daughter loved everything in the store, so it was hard to choose but we found some great on-trend items for her to go back-to-school in style with. My daughter is a HUGE animal fan so she was in heaven with the choices!! One of the hottest trends for girls that I saw is definitely anything to do with animals whether it’s just animal print like leopard or cheetah or pictures of animals such as owls, horses, unicorns, cats and dogs. Other top trends included lots of graphic printed shirts, mixed prints, lace, neon colors like neon berry and neon plum, skater style skirts & dresses, dresses with tutu bottoms and lots of leggings, denim and banded jogger/sweat pants. We loved the leggings with the faux metal studs at the bottom and this Faux Leather Diamond Quilted Skater Skirt was a big hit with my daughter. Paired with a cool Graphic Jogger Tee such as this New York one and the Ryder Tall Boot in black, your daughter will for sure be the fashionista of the class!
The Children’s Place has a wide assortment of really fun back-to-school accessories for girls to choose from such as stylish backpacks in mixed prints (striped and hearts), multi-colored hearts print, and floral leopard print as well as lunchboxes, pencil cases, water bottles and stationery sets. The Children’s Place also offers a variety of cool necklaces, earrings and bracelets that all pair nicely with the clothes. This season they have an awesome selection of handbags. My daughter did not want to leave the store without the Glitter Owl Purse. Other adorable ones include a Quilted Kitty Bag, Perforated Heart Crossbody Bag, Glitter Fox Purse, and everyone’s favorite Disney Princesses Elsa and Anna. To add a little extra pizzazz to your outfit wrap one of these chic Metallic Threaded Woven Scarves around your neck or a bold animal print such as this Ombre Cheetah Print & Glitter Scarf. Top it off with one of these hip hats such as the Leopard Print Newsboy Cap, Glitter Bow Fedora or a sweet beanie that comes in a range of colors and prints.
