20 Back to School Picks for Boys and Girls

by Jessica Pigza

The Nordstrom Aniversary Sale is on and the timing couldn’t be more perfect to score some fantastic back to school deals for the kids! But for those who either forgot the sale was on or waited to check it out, some of the items are sadly sold out. But not to worry! There are still some great finds left.

As a mother of three school-age kids, going back to school shopping is always an adventure. I want pieces that won’t wear out in the first few months, but I also don’t want to spend a fortune. Additionally, my kids are getting to the age where they are paying more attention to what they are wearing. They now like to look put together!

Below are some of my top picks still available for both boys and girls and some different ideas on how to put the pieces together.
