|My Girl's Picks - Fall Fashions From Sears|
I think a new outfit for the first day of school is a necessity. I got one (or two!) every year growing up, and I found it helped me to leave summer behind and get excited about the new school year. Now that I carry on the tradition with my own children I'm always interested to see how their style changes from year to year.
While my little girl once adored frilly dresses and a wild mix of colours and patterns, she now favours a more simple and sporty style. She is beginning competitive dance this year, so she is a fan of dance-related clothing such as track pants and hoodies. She also still likes fashion with a touch of whimsy, like the heart-themed tops and leggings from Sears, above.

My son's sense of style hasn't changed as dramatically as his sister's. He continues to favour jeans, plaid shirts, camouflage and sports-related clothing. He has been playing competitive soccer and basketball for a few years now, so sporty fashions have become more dominant than they used to be. He still likes skateboarding fashions too, so the Tony Hawk line at Sears works well for him. Sears carries a variety of top quality brands to suit both of my kids. Because price is always a factor, I regularly peruse the Sears flyers and catalogues to get great deals.
