Mijo Style: Back to School Lookbook With Carter’s at Kohl’s

Boys Fall Back to School Lookbook

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included Carter’s clothes as compensation.

It’s time for another Mijo Style post! It’s been such a long time since I’ve last shared a kids fashion post and I’m happy to be teaming up with Carter’s at Kohl’s to share Jaxon’s back to school looks with you. He’ll be 5 in November so that means spending another year close to home, but we may put him into another program so that he can have something to look forward to each week. He really loved going to his pre-k enrichment program last spring.

To prepare for Jaxon’s new adventure in learning, I shopped Carter’s at Kohl’s and I just love the pieces we were able to add to his wardrobe. Everything is a size 5 and fits him perfectly. You will notice that we grabbed quite a bit of blue so to offset it a bit, I styled each look with a pair of sepia colored sneakers to tie in the fall season. Fall is all about rich, warm tones so that was my way of saying, “Hey fall, we see you.”

Denim On Khaki

I always make sure to add a denim top and a pair of khaki’s to Jaxon’s wardrobe. I love how stylish he looks in Carter’s denim button down shirts and how easy it is to style these khaki cargo joggers.

Casual Athletic

The tee and jogger combo is hands down the easiest and comfiest outfit for kiddos. This Handsome Graphic Tee and navy cargo joggers make for the perfect everyday look.

The Patterned Henley

Along with joggers, I’m obsessed with henelys. There’s a sophistication about them that I love and prefer over a basic cuts. The Aztec inspired geo pattern adds to it uniqueness. And when it comes to shopping for children’s clothing, uniqueness for me is major key.

Classic Plaid On Denim

Jaxon’s fall wardrobe isn’t complete without a plaid button down. This blue button down pocket shirt will be perfect for layering as the temps cool down. We paired it with Carter’s pull-on jeans for the same convenience as joggers. They’re great for when Mother Nature calls.

Bold & Cozy Sweatshirt

To add a pop of color to Jaxon’s wardrobe, I grabbed this red DUDE sweatshirt. We paired this cold-weather favorite the pull-on jeans as well.

I hope you enjoyed these back to school outfit ideas for boys. Let me know if you decide to pick up any of these pieces. I’d love to see how you style your kids!

    These are great choices for back to school clothing. This is what I kinda miss now that my own children are grown. Carter’s at Kohl’s have high quality fashionable clothes for kids, and affordable too!
