Summer is coming to an end in our heck of the woods. In just 3 short weeks I will have TWO kids in elementary school. How scary is that? Our public and private schools require a uniform which does makes getting dressed in the morning a big easier but it also cuts into our tight household budget since we have to shop for new clothes instead of wearing the clothes we already have. A recent study from the National Retail Federation surveyed American Families and 60% said they plan to spend more in the 2015 school season than last year so Affordability, durability, and versatility are all things I look for when it comes to the school uniform clothes I buy so it doesn’t hurt our savings account.
Since Makenna started Kindergarten she’s had Cherokee Uniforms (ranging from $7.99-$29.99) that have lasted her through the year and beyond. Kendall will even be wearing some of Makenna’s old Cherokee uniforms because they still look new and in amazing condition.
Currently, Cherokee uniforms are ON SALE and if your state is Tax-Free you’ll be able to score some amazing deals. From polos from just $5, skirts about $7, to pants at $10. You can’t go wrong with Cherokee uniforms are your go-to store – Target!

Create a signature look with stand-out accessories like printed tights and add a dainty patterened bag and floppy hat. Young gentlemen will dress to impress in menswear staples like the Cherokee boys’ uniform blazer. Over a solid polo, the look becomes instantly debonair.
