We always feel like time flies but this year back to school seemed to just creep right up on us. Our mom always hated back to school and she would say, “school just gets in the way of all my fun with my kids.” She loved spending time with us. One of the things that took away the dread of going back to school was shopping for clothes and supplies. This always seemed to bring a little excitement to ending our summer fun and beginning a new school year.
We have some of the cutest kids in our family and neighborhood so what better way to show them off than to have them model their favorite back to school outfits. In doing this, something interesting happened. We did not give the parents and kids any instructions other than to have them pick their favorite outfit. When we grouped the kids together by elementary, jr high and high school ages, it became obvious what the back to school trends are. The older kids really liked the more muted tones of blues, greens, greys, and neutrals. For the younger kids there seemed to be more patterns and typical fall colors. We were impressed at how well they put themselves together and how excited they were to show up and have a fun photoshoot. See if you recognize any of the trends your kids or others are wearing in our pictures.
