    These are some great styles! I love all the clothes you picked out. We have uniforms at our school, but after school we love to put on non uniform clothes, We will have to check out a lot of these.

    I’d like to complement your choice of outfits. They really look cute! I am not a Kohl’s addict but I this makes me want to check them out. Also, my husband just told me the other day that my favorite brand is exclusively distributed by Kohl’s already! Oh my! What deals do they have now besides the back-to-school promos?

    I really like the styles of hoodies for boys shown in your post. This year, my nephew is wearing a school uniform so he’ll have to save things like that for the weekend.
