Little Boy in Blue Zak, Age 3 Mom: Jaime Hardesty I choose these for Zak mainly because he is such an active little boy who LOVES playing outside and often time gets very dirty, so I don’t like to spend a ton of money on his clothes. Also, I think he looks so darn cute in them and they are comfortable for him to wear. Cherokee jeans, $12; Cherokee button-down shirt, $10 both available at Target. “Had to Have Them” Grace, Age 9 Mom: Jaime Hardesty I choose this outfit for Grace for several reasons: She LOVES Justice and I will buy her things from there from time to time, if I can get them for a good price (as she is still growing). Grace went shopping with the idea in mind that she wanted shorts with leggings to wear underneath of them (she said she loves how that looks). She is really into blue right now, so when she spotted the blue leggings with the sequins on the side of them she ‘had to have them.” Denim shorts, $18.45 on sale for $9.36’ Lace cami, $17.90 on sale for $9.09; Leggings, $25.90 on sale for $13.75; shirt, $22.90 on sale for $12.15 All items available at Justice. Seeking Justice Emma Grace, 10 Mom: Jennifer Hodges Emma Grace’s brand loyalty to Justice is something to be admired. There is nowhere else she’d rather head for back to school shopping, especially considering this year marks her big transition to middle school! When it comes to her perfect look bright colors and sequins are almost always involved. Paired with sequined ballet flats this outfit is the perfect way for Emma Grace to kick off the school year right … and bright. Polk-a-dot tiered skirt with sequin layers, $36.90; 3D bow top, $32.90, both available at Justice. Ballet flats, $9 available at Walmart. Photos by Mary McElgunn
