wiww: French Toast School Uniform Review

This is a little different spin on my usual What I Wore Wednesday post, the kids are taking over and what they are wearing for back to school this year is what we’re serving up. School’s out for summer, but we all know how fast the summer can come to an end. I’ve got school supplies & uniform shopping on the brain because with three kids there is so much to have to do when it comes to the back-to-school to-do list.

French Toast is going to be my go-to this year when it comes to shopping for school uniforms for the kids. I shopped online last year for them, but hadn’t stumbled upon this uniform site. They have a lot to offer including girls’ school uniforms, boys’ school uniforms and even clearance items.

Besides the clearance items, they offer discount codes and special savings on things like shipping from time to time.

Want to know a little more about French Toast? I can’t say it better than they do:

French Toast Official School Wear™ is America’s leading brand of school uniform. Since 1958, our company has provided families with quality children’s wear and boys and girls school uniforms at great prices. Our selection of uniform styles and sizes is second to none, from toddler size uniforms through young adult, French Toast carries over 6,000 individual colors, styles and sizes in stock, all year round!

Tucker and Lilah loved being my models (even though they did ask, “is it time to go back to school already?!” Ha!) to try on the items I picked out. Tucker looks pretty strapping in this crisp white button down and he’s got such a tiny waist that I love the adjustable waist option in these shorts.

& one can’t forget about my always willing model. I absolutely love this Short Sleeve Peter Pan Blouse with Lace Trim Collar, it is just too sweet. The pleated skirt is pretty darn cute, too. One thing I love about the kids wearing uniforms for school is that I don’t have to think when it comes to dressing them each morning. French Toast makes it even that much easier for uniform shopping for back to school because everything I need is in one quick stop.

While I was sent uniform pieces for my kids to try on & keep for next school year as compensation, all opinions are 100% my own.

wiww at the end of the school year.

School’s out for summer & these last few pictures of the school year explain it all. The first wiww outfit was what I wore to one of my many workshops that ended out this school year. The middle photo was the day I watched my baby boy be promoted from kindergarten to first grade (sob sob!). The last photo was our last workday of the year. The one when the kids have already finished the year and we are packing up our rooms for summer.


I’ve got to post about the other end of the school year happenings, too. Now, to find time during summer vacation for it!

wiww: denim shorts two ways

A few weeks ago I bought a new pair of denim shorts from Old Navy. They are cuffed boyfriend style with just the right amount of wear & tear to them already. They are my new favorite go-to on these hot weekends. Here are my denim shorts two ways.

Friday night, Mike and I headed out for dinner and to run errands. If I had more time to plan (it was an impromptu date night) I might have dressed the shorts up a little more (with fun wedges or something) but since we weren’t doing anything special I just threw on some sandals. I love my new cover up, too (what do you call these? Not a cardigan) from Target (of course).


On Saturday, we had a birthday party to take the kids to. Please tell me I’m not the only one that wears jeans for more than one day? I usually will wear them twice before I wash them as long as they aren’t dirty for some reason. So, again, my new favorite pair of jean shorts and a simple tee and sandals paired with them. Notice my new summer hair is soft waves? I’ve got no desire to really do my hair lately so these waves are perfect.


Just seven more days left of school and I can be dressing like this all summer long! What summer piece do you look most forward to wearing when the hot weather rolls in?

wiww: this week.

It’s funny how I lean on my wiww posts when I’m not tending my blog as well as I should be. I guess because they are fun & easy. This week’s wiww post is themed on what I actually wore this week. Meaning Monday & Tuesday. It was cool on Monday, but I wanted toContinue Reading

wiww: top five reasons I love a maxi skirt

It was just a year ago that I wore my first long maxi skirt. In the 365 days that have passed since then, my love of the maxi skirt has grown tenfold. They only reason I know that it was a year ago yesterday that I wore my first floor-length maxi is because of myContinue Reading

wiww: one top, two ways.

I recently got this top from Target (yes, #targetdoesitagain) and love it. I mostly love how I can pair it with any  pop of color because of it’s simple black & white design. I wore it Saturday for my brother & sister-in-law’s housewarming party (super casual cookout) and then again Monday for work (dressed upContinue Reading

wiww: check out the shoes.

I love all of the shoes in these three outfits. I took a picture last night of what I had worn yesterday and I loved those shoes as well (but was too lazy to load the pics before getting this post ready so they’ll just have to wait for another day). I need to getContinue Reading

wiww: layers.

It’s funny that I don’t link up on the regular with my WIWW posts but when I do there always seems to be a trend to my outfits. When I looked at these pictures I realized layers it is this week. Our normally hot Florida weather (even in winter) has been more seasonal over theContinue Reading

wiww: Celebrate Literacy Week at School.

This is a little fun WIWW. This week is Celebrate Literacy week at school and that means themed days. The theme this year is reading across subjects and it’s been really fun, especially since my kids get to partake in it now. Monday was dress like a scientist day, to support reading in science. WeContinue Reading
