• Denim Basics for Back to School

    I’m such a huge fan of denim. It’s my favorite neutral because it can be dressed up or down, goes with everything, and is classic. My son wears a uniform for school, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t do a little bit of fun back to school shopping for some denim basics to pair with his navy and white uniform. I have fun memories of doing back to school shopping with my mom: the anticipation of a new year and the excitement of some new outfits to wear. I’d like to carry on that tradition with my boys. I was super happy to find stylish denim options for back to school this year thanks to Arizona Jeans at JCPenney.

    Jeans are a staple in our house, and a well made pair is a must considering my son is notorious for getting holes in every knee of every pair of pants he wears. He’ll wear jeans on the weekends and can also wear them on free dress days at school. If the wash is dark enough he can even wear denim as part of his uniform. I love that this pair of Arizona Denim jeans is fitted without being too tight. It gives Charlie room to be comfortable and play while still looking stylish.

    I’m also a sucker for a denim jacket. A good denim jacket can last forever! This one is also Arizona Denim and is perfect for chilly mornings when we’re headed to school and will transition well into fall. I also love that it has a hood and the sleeves give it a letterman jacket style that fits well with a school uniform.

    Besides having great back to school styles this season, JCPenney also partnered with the YMCA to help ensure every kid has the basics they need to start the school year off right. JCPenney will donate $1 for each pair of Arizona Jeans sold to support the Y’s academic achievement programs through their #SoWorthIt campaign. As if you didn’t have a good enough reason to buy great denim basics before, now there’s an even better reason to go shop. Because shopping for a good cause makes great deals even sweeter, am I right?

       This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood
