My daughter Ava is a reluctant blog model. She’d much rather be in her work boots mucking out stalls at the horse barn. As a compromise, we agreed to let her model her new FabKids outfit at the stables. Mom wins and so does Ava.
She received this adorable necklace top, leopard pants and headband in this month’s outfit. Visit FabKids.com to learn how to get $20 off your first outfit.

The first day of school is just a week away. For the most part, we are done school shopping. Woo hoo!
I try to streamline our back to school shopping by first taking an inventory of our kids’ closets and then making a list of their needs. Since it’s hot here well into October, we usually stock up on basics at the beginning of the year, then plan another trip later in the fall to add in jeans and sweaters.
Recently I was introduced to FabKids, JustFab’s newest fashion club. It was created by a team of parents including celebrity mom Christina Applegate. FabKids is a monthly outfit club just for kids. For $39.95 per month, you get a three piece outfit designed for style and made for the playground. Outfits are available for girls and boys in sizes 2-12. There’s even a fun style quiz so the outfits are styled just for your little one. What appeals to me about a service like this is getting seasonally appropriate outfits in my 9 year-old daughter’s size without having to go out and shop every month.
Right now, as a new member, you can get your first 3-piece outfit for just $19.95!
Ava got this cute 3-piece look (including hair accessories) to rock for back to school.

Our two older kids wear uniforms to school, which makes back to school shopping a breeze. It’s kind of a bummer for them though, especially for our 14 year-old daughter, Aubrey. But we always find her a few fun items for weekend wear so she doesn’t feel left out.
She loves her new tee from Skip N’ Whistle. They have a collection of some of the cutest and most unique t-shirts around. It’s great for pairing with some denim shorts and Keds now and under a cozy cardigan with jeans later.
