Well, happy Thursday! This week for Things I love Thursday (hosted by the lovely Jill at the Diaper Diaries ), I will share some of my back-to-school EXCITEMENT with you. Because I am suuuuuuuuuuper excited that my kids are going back to school in a mere 19 days. Holla if you HEARD ME!!! Joshua wears uniforms to his school, and so I am excited to bring you a Lands’ End school uniform review, because as you all know if you have read this blog EVER, WE.LOVE.LANDS’.END!! And I have been clothing Joshua in their uniforms for three years now. They are fantastic! Here’s my cute little 2nd grader all decked out in Lands’ End and ready for school!
Short-sleeve Mesh Polo - this classic has recently been re-vamped and will now look like new for much longer! The 100% cotton mesh resists shrinkage and fading and stains wash out easier than ever before. I love the monogram with Joshua’s school logo. It looks awesome and it was easy for me to search online for Joshua’s school. It is part of the Preferred School Program so when I purchase uniform items with the preferred school number, the school earns cash back!
Plain front Iron-Knees Stain & Wrinkle Resistant Chinos - Iron Knees!! I love it! This is a new product that I am really excited about. Little boys are tough on the knees of their uniform pants, and these pants combat that with a hidden interior knee patch that is undetectable from the outside. Pretty sweet if you ask me! Can’t wait to see how these last when Joshua puts them through the paces!
Microfleece half-zip jacket: I love this because it looks super-sharp with the school logo, and it is just as warm as a sweater but more lightweight. Perfect to layer over the uniform polos, or alone for “dress down day” that Joshua’s school has a couple Friday’s a year.
School Uniform Boys’ All-Weather Oxford Shoes – I LOVE these shoes! My kids always wear Lands’ End shoes but before these there were no uniform shoes that Joshua and I both liked. These Oxfords are perfect. They are the oxford version of the famous Lands’ End All-Weather Mocs. They are tough and comfy but have that dressier look and laces. I love the durability of Lands’ End shoes and I am sure these are going to last Joshua all year!
Boys’ Solid ClassMate StudyHaul Backpack - I LOVE how Lands’ End has so many different sizes of backpacks! Joshua has used a Lands’ End backpack for the past two years but it was really too big for him (although it still looks like NEW) – I wanted to get him a smaller one for the next couple of years, and we’ll put the big one back in rotation when he needs to haul more than just his homework folders and lunch box. The StudyHaul (which really is for a smaller kid, I would say kindergarten to third grade-ish) has two big compartments to organize stuff, plus a removable pouch for school supplies, and mesh pockets for water bottles, etc. And I love the way it looks with Joshua’s name on it! There are lots of other ways you can personalize, too!
Lands’ End has lots of adorable girls uniform options too! Next week I’ll share those with you. My niece Murrin, is going from homeschool to junior high so her first day of 8th grade will be her first day of SCHOOL, and she will be looking great in her Lands’ End uniform. Come back next week and you’ll see why I also love Lands’ End girls uniforms.
