The one where I have no time and the kids need stuff for school. #ZapposStyle #MC #Sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for I received product samples to facilitate my review.

Remember how I totally admitted defeat and decided to knock out my back to school shopping at It all came in!!!! And I LOVE IT ALL. 

I scored ALL of this for under $300, and I was super pumped about the brands they had available:

  • Nike
  • Stride Rite
  • New Balance
  • Converse
  • Keen
  • Pediped
  • Under Armour
  • The Northface
  • Patagonia
  • Roxy
  • Volcom
  • Splendid
  • Tommy Hilfiger

Stuff that I KNOW will last long enough and stand up to the beating my growing kids will put it through! I was originally planning on schlepping to an outlet mall an hour away, followed up by another shopping center ANOTHER hour away, but I was able to pick up the high quality stuff I wanted while in my pajamas.

I declare myself the winner. On to the clothes!

Emma started off with this Tommy Hilfiger Hi-Low Polo in Fuschia ($24). Polos aren’t required for school, but I love how polished they look in them!

Not only that, but she also got an AH-MAY-ZING Herschel Supply Co. bag ($109.99) that I miiiiight steal. She picked the “rust” color, and I’m glad she did! I carried it to a meeting before handing it over (I couldn’t resist) and I got a compliment on the color!

This bag will really last her at least two or three years. It’s so well made!

And last but not least, she picked out her new signature shoe — Converse Kids Chuck Taylor Stretch Lace Slip On ($40)


These. Are. Awesome. They never untie, she slips them on herself, and they obvi go with everything! BOOM.

Micah got some good stuff, too! Check it.


Micah looks super put together in this Volcom Kids Wowzer Polo ($27). He likes that it’s soft. I like that it’s black and hides stains :).


These New Balance Kids KL574 ($49.95) are EASILY his favorite purchase. He will go the extra mile to hunt down a pair of socks (that don’t always match) so that he can wear his “running shoes”. Now if I can just get him to figure out how to tie laces…

and rounding out the bunch is Maisy, my preschooler! She was pretty set as far as clothing goes, so I just picked up a pair of Crocs Kids Shayna Hi Glitter Mary Jane ($29.99) for her and called it a day!

They had silver sparkle ones, too, but I picked Multi. They look silver enough, but up close, you can see some color variation in the glitter. They’re super comfy for her, look cuter than your average slip on, and they don’t rub her feet the wrong way! Also, we’re potty training right now, so…yeah. They hose off just fine.

Which is your fave?
