Move Over, Summer. A New School Year Is Coming!

As summer days are coming to an end and fall not too far in the horizon, we need to think about our little ones and the chilly mornings. When we think of school clothes, we often think of jeans, khakis, button down shirts, and t-shirts. We forget about a staple that should be in every kid’s closet: fleece jackets. Regular jackets can be too heavy or bulky this time of year- but a cozy fleece jacket is PERRR-FECT for fall, winter, and spring!

Fleece jackets are light and comfortable to wear. This means they are ideal for the cold mornings but light enough to roll up and toss in a backpack when the day turns warmer.  And Moms… the best part about a fleece jacket is they are machine washable! This is a must!

Whether it is the first day of kindergarten or 8th grade, your little ones want to be hip, stylish, and looking trendy. With so many different options to choose from on the market, we’ve put together a list of our favorite kids fleece jackets.

Heather is a Pennsylvania native raised near an old coal-mining town. She has been traveling the world since she was 3 months old. Her destination was Germany and the list continued from the great Swiss Alps to the stunning Taj Mahal. In visiting these countries at a younger age – the wilderness, camping, climbing, and skiing was not in the picture, but she knew there was always something missing. It wasn’t until her mid-twenties when she returned back to her of roots of PA that it clicked and everything came full circle. Heather now resides in the grand state of Colorado (which every person should) to take on the mountains and climb every face CO has to offer.
