It’s hard to believe it, but it’s already Back-to-School time! Before you head out for your BTS shopping, Megan Podolsky from 529 Kids Consign has 5 Must-Haves items for your list. And be sure to mark your calendar, August 4-6th is the Virginia Sales Tax Holidays where you can purchase qualifying school supplies, clothing, footwear and more without paying sales tax.
1. Overalls/Rompers Overalls and rompers are so big this year, and more importantly they are so stinkin’ cute on kids!
There are lots of options from shortalls for the hot days to denim overalls for the cool days and for skirt options (which makes potty time a lot easier), there are lots of fun ways to get in on this trend.
2. Button-down woven shirts
Button-downs are a must-have and season-less. They are a great transition piece for summer to fall and when winter rolls in, your little one will look like a true gentleman with one of these layered under a cardigan or crew neck sweater. We also really like these for picture day (it’ll be here soon)! Your guy can wear it over a t-shirt for his snap then take it off after. Everyone’s happy!
3. Rain gear
The weather around here changes quickly so be sure to have your gear ready for when you wake-up to an expected raining morning. And if you want to avoid your kid coming home with the wrong rain jacket (they can tend to all look alike thrown on a classroom bench), choose a unique style or print. To keep your little one’s feet dry you always need a classic pair like this one from Hunter.
We all know how difficult it can be going from a leisurely summer schedule to a school-time routine, so make it a bit smoother with PJ’s your kids can get into. Let them pick their favorite prints and colors so they will look forward to bedtime (or at least one can hope)!
After you check the big items off your list, you always want to make sure your student is accessorized properly as well. Let them share their creativity with these backpacks that send a message. When shopping you can also let your kids pick out some fun bracelets, cool socks, lip glosses and more so they feel involved. These add-ons are especially necessary for those in uniforms that still want to show a bit of their own personality!
You can find all these items and more at 529 Kids Consign. This year we have lots of new retail items (like the backpack, socks and lip glosses), and of course you can always save big with our consignment selection. Finally, we are still looking for fall items! Not only can you save by shopping with us, you can make money too by selling your best items!
