The leaves are turning colors, the weather is cooling down, and kids all over the country are having to set alarms and head back to school. While academic success is a main priority, most kids will agree that the first part of the year is an opportunity to showcase their fashion sense to their peers. While buying new pencils and notebooks is something you have to do, school clothes shopping with your kid is something you can hopefully have a little more fun with.
