Back to school sure does creep up fast a furious after the summer break. Within in just a couple of days, families go from slow beach or lake days to setting alarms and rushing back into morning routines and school drop offs and pick ups. Then parents are bombarded with paperwork and communications from the school of all the things young and old students need and forms that need to be filled out and returned ASAP.
When athletic leisurewear became a trend, I think moms everywhere rejoiced—I know I did. While many probably rocked the leggings with sweaters before it was popular to do so, now they’re actually the “stylish” ones at school pickup. Or at least, that’s what I tell myself, the many days that I throw on my black Lululemon pants, a sweatshirt with a jacket on top, and a pair of black runners.
If you saw my Gift Guide for the Westcoast Dad, I shared a beautiful wood watch that I was planning to give to my husband this Christmas. For the first time in a long while, I hit the gift jackpot. My number one guy was highly impressed when he opened his watch, commenting on its unique look and sleek features.
No matter what time of the year, my son’s fashion revolves around comfort. He is all boy and loves running, jumping and chasing his friends. His summer gear reflects his love of movement while also being stylish. We are calling this his summer uniform…cotton tee, cotton shorts, slip-on runners and sunglasses. Every. Single. Day.
