Back To School Fall Essentials

Today's collaboration was sparked by my love for Stephen Joseph Gifts. As always all opinion, spelling errors & exclamation points are all mine;)!

The last couple weeks it's actually started to feel a lot like Fall around here. It's been such a welcomed change from the heat & humidity we've experienced all summer. With the temperatures starting to drop, I thought It was time to invest in some quality back to school pieces for both our girls. Specifically,rain gear. It rains SO much here in Ohio! I use to think it was so odd that no one's home came with sprinkler systems, but now, I totally get it. There is just no need for them! Getting use to the constant rain has been an adjustment for me but thankfully my girls absolutely love the rain & beg me to let them play every time we get a storm{which is on a weekly basis}. So, rain coats & rain boots were my top priority for these little munchkins.  

Mallorie has been fond of horses since the first time she got to go horseback riding with my uncle{at two years of age}. And now that she takes lessons, that love of horses has only strengthened. I knew she would absolutely love this  coat & these boots. 
Two things that really make these coats stand out for me as far as quality are the coat's inner cotton layer {which helps make these extra warm & cozy}, & the second is that they have adjustable cuffs {which essentially allows your child to grow with these or to have a tailored fit}.  
 Aren't these darling? 
I almost got the girls matching sets, but I resisted the urge! I know it's important for them to cultivate their own individual taste & style.
 I'm always a bit nervous about ordering kid's shoes online since their sizing can vary so much. But, I'm glad I took the risk with these because they turned out to fit them perfectly.
Something else both girls have been eyeing from Stephen Joseph's site are these darling lunch pals & these side kick back packs. Every time I go on their site, I find something new to add to our list of must-haves{Like this & this}. They really do have something for everyone! Have you ever shopped at Stephen Joseph's before?
