Summer is almost halfway over and you know what that means…back to school shopping! Since we have so many savvy mommy readers, and our very own founder, Melissa, is a mother too, we have been featuring more nursery tours and kid-friendly content. In preparation for the new season approaching, we are sharing a little “Kiddo Back to School 101” retail therapy, Johnson style! Here is what Melissa has to say:

“Charlie is officially 5 and starts kindergarten this fall.  It boggles my mind where all the time goes.  It’s bitter sweet to say the least.  Even though I am ecstatic to see my little guy become independent and begin a new memorable chapter in his life, it’s also closing the door to toddler-hood and preschool.


Yes, we really do jump barefoot on the bed and sometimes the sofa too- every day!  Fall will be here before we know it, so we wanted to get first dibs on all the back to school fashion.   Charlie recently graduated out of the “toddler” section at the department store and is officially in the Junior Boys section.  Another bitter sweet milestone… can’t they stay little forever?!   In honor of the new season and size change, we are so thrilled to partner with the folks at Sears and style Charlie’s back to school closet with some of our favorite picks!


These Toughskins Boys French Terry Sweatpants are by far our favorite pick. They come in multiple colors like black and indigo blue- we bought both!  I love how they have a tie waistband that makes it wide on the waist and a relaxed fit.  These are great for the everyday or bedtime.  I love the way these comfortably fit so much that I am considering going back to buy 2 more pairs.  We paired this outfit with a Toughskins brand Coral Crew Pocket Tee.   This shirt totally matches his bright & bubbly personality.  This is one of our top picks for his first day of school outfit- Way to make a first impression!


We’re already getting inspired with new recipes around here in the BFFF Test Kitchen.  We will be sharing this popcorn recipe as it will make a perfect light afterschool snack.  Charlie is loving his new Toughskins Chambray Striped Shorts. They have side pockets and back pockets so he can store his favorite toys, snack or even a little notebook in it. They have a really cool elastic band on the back so it’s not digging into his waistline.  Being 100% cotton, they are a perfect fit.

We are definitely a step ahead on our back to school shopping.  From brands like Toughskins, Canyon River Blues and Amplify, Sears has endless options to create some of the best looks for your loved ones this Back to School season- especially in the boys section!”
