Back to School – Kid Style

I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m a summer girl through and through, but as a kid I was always excited for the start of a new school year because it meant shopping for new clothes!

And while I live for summer, I somehow don't feel ready. If you also have that panging "I'm missing something" feeling, I put together a list of some of my fav Amazon finds and ones that I'm eyeing. All ship Prime, so they'll be on your doorstep before summer (or that vacation you've been looking forward to) even begins.My summer essentials
