Backpack flair

It's no secret my girls and I are a little extra. We love all the girly, sparkly things and knew we had to bedazzle their backpacks. I never shared Jules' kindergarten backpack deets, worst wanna be blogger ever ha. I'll be sharing it below along with this years flair and a few things we love. 

We loved this fjallraven kanken backpack. I know it's a splurge item but the quality is amazing and I honestly loved the size of it. Jules used this in the mini for TK and the regular size for kindergarten and it fit her little body so perfectly, it didn't look so huge like the other regular sized bags did. It held up so well and cleaned up great at the end of the year. We plan on saving it and using it again another school year. I think the thing we loved about it the most was how we were able to customize it with all the fun things. The patches held up great except for a few in the pocket area but I also had a hard time ironing them on that section. The letter pins are from Hobby Lobby. They were so cute but she lost them throughout the year because of where we placed them. She was constantly hitting and pulling them when she put things into and out of her backpack. I'm thinking that placing them in the pocket area that never got used would have saved them, that's what we ended up doing for this years backpack. Most of the patches were from amazon and a few from Hobby lobby. 

This years backpack is so fun and screams Jules. Not sure where she saw a clear backpack but that is what she requested, clear and glittery, no sequins. We ended up stumbling across this one right after her summer vacation started and she had to have it. Another splurge item but so worth it! When it showed up I was so impressed and didn't expect it to be as sturdy and even cuter in person. We went with the Hobby Lobby pins again. After they fell off last years backpack I figured we would do iron on letter patches instead but when we went this clear route, that was out of the picture. Hoping that placing these on the pocket area helps. her initial hand sanitizer is from Justice and the iridescent pom pom is from target.

Kourt is princess obsessed so it's no surprise she picked this backpack. She will be in a preschool program where they don't really need a backpack, most kids take one and put their water bottles and sweaters in there, so we went with the mini and I love it! Let me just say that it is small so if you're looking for something to pack lots of things in this size is not for you. I love that it's small because she can use it daily. She likes purses and bags and tends to take one filled with toys to restaurants so this is perfect! We can even use it on Disney days. Speaking of Disney, on our last trip she picked out the cutest little Mickey hat hand sanitizer. The ice cream pom pom is from Target and we ended up doing the same pin letter for her too.

How cute are those personalized keychains. My friend, Stephanie, from Sparrow and Bean made Jackson a pacifier clip when he was a baby. I loved it so much that when  Jules started school last year and knew she needed one too. Stephanie is the sweetest and made my little keychain dreams come true.  She is literally the sweetest small shop owner ever and has offered you 20% with code, "ALITTLEJANDK20". Click here to order.
