One more week until school starts. One more week with these little sweet faces at home. It’s hard to believe that summer is wrapping up and we will be entering another school year in just a few short days. Backpacks and lunch boxes are purchased. Their new back to school shoes are sitting in the mudroom waiting to be worn. And a few new back to school outfits are cleaned and folded, ready to be worn during their first weeks of school. I’m not quite ready to say good-bye to summer, but it’s just about time for these kids to take a leap into another new school year.
One of our favorite back to school traditions, over the past few years, has been to spend some time in August hitting the stores for our back to school shopping. One store that we must visit every year is Hanna Andersson. Their clothes are consistently comfortable, durable over time, but most importantly, they come in fun patterns and colors that kids just love.
We headed to Hanna Andersson earlier this month & the kids had so much fun browsing through the store trying to pick out a few new special items for school. Their stores are fun to shop through because there are lots of “special items” that the kids just fall in love with. This may be the fun critter tights or that special fire truck shirt, but there really is something for every kid.
The little details matter when shopping for kids & this store encourages kids to be kids. Hanna Andersson creates items that are fun and playful for children, such the pom-pom necklace for girls or the viking stocking hat for boys. I love that Hanna Andersson creates clothes that are truly for kids.
Hanna Andersson is one of our go-to stores to pick up basic wardrobe essentials because you know that the clothes are really going to last. My boys put a lot of wear and tear on their clothes, & we need clothes that can withstand washing after washing. Hanna Andersson clothes are created from durable fabrics and washer-proof colors. They not only last through one child, but can be passed down from sibling to siblings. It’s not only a great place to pick up essential items such as pants and shirts, but also a fall essential: outerwear.
This year, one thing that we needed to update from last year was some new fall jackets for the kids. As the weather starts to cool down (hopefully!), one thing that is worn daily in our house is a simple zip-up jacket. This year, I love the fleece jackets that we found at Hanna Andersson.
Andrew really likes the comfort of sweatshirts, but I wanted something that was thicker than most cotton zip-up sweatshirts so it will really last through the winter. This super cozy fleece lined hoodie is the perfect find. It’s super soft, easy to zip on and off, and my five year old loves it. Not only is it soft and comfortable, but it’s super cute with the fun lightening bolt pattern.
My kids are really into wearing clothes that are comfortable so as soon as I saw the marshmallow hoodie, I knew it was perfect for Abby. This is the softest jacket that I have ever felt and is perfect for the transition to fall. It’s super soft and super warm…I just wish that they made one of these in my size!
Courtney’s girls chose matching sherpa fleece jackets for the fall. These look perfect for those really cold fall mornings with the double sided sherpa. Courtney chose a more neutral color, since she knows that in a few years then her boys will be able to use the jackets as well!
Right now, there are some great sales to be found at Hanna Andersson, including forty percent off all tees and pants today! We hope you take some time to browse the back to school finds at your local Hanna Andersson store or visit the website online. It truly is a store that encourages kids to be kids.
