Back-to-School Capsule Wardrobe Under $175 from H&M

Hey dudes!

How was your weekend? We actually had a nice little mini-date night since Grandma and Grandpa surprised us and took the girls to their house for a sleepover. So we just had baby boy at home, and he goes to sleep at eight, so mama and daddy got to hang out and actually watch a movie. Whaaaa? I seriously don't remember when was the last time we actually watched a full movie by ourselves. Does anyone else's kids talk incessantly through literally any movie they watch? Even if they're interested? Love 'em, but yeesh.

But I digress.

Today I have the last installment of the back-to-school capsule wardrobe series! This post features H&M, and rather than coming in at $150, these wardrobes are just under $175. Reason being, H&M has a 1-10 year-old size range and a 8-14 year old size range. I selected items from the 8-14 y/o range, which are priced a bit higher, for obvious reasons. SO, if you're shopping for a younger kid, you could easily spend less than $175.

In case you missed last week's collections, you can find my capsule wardrobes from Old Navy here, and the wardrobes from Target here.

Scroll on down and check out the goods! And be sure to read all the way to the bottom for my favorite tip when shopping with H&M!

Boys' Back-to-School Capsule Wardrobe

Again, I relied on some 2-packs of bottoms and tee shirts for this wardrobe. I also really like these sneakers because they remind me of a Vans/Puma hybrid. And the bomber jacket is perfect for layering over the hoodie when it starts to get really chilly.

The Details:

  1. 2-Pack Long-Sleeve Tees - $17.99
  2. 2-Pack Tee Shirts - $14.99
  3. Plaid Button-Down Shirt - $17.99
  4. Graphic Tee Shirt - $12.99

  8. Bomber Jacket - $29.99
  9. Retro-Style Sneakers - $17.99

That's it for the back-to-school wardrobes!

Bonus Tip: If you didn't already know, H&M offers a recycling program where you can get 15% off your next purchase when you bring in a bag of old clothes. I haven't done it yet, but I believe you can bring the bag in and get your coupon, then do your shopping and use the coupon after. Don't quote me on that though. Either way, it's a fantastic deal!

I'll see you Friday with some outfit inspo and a fun little shoot we did in Houston!

Much Love,
