Who says parents can’t get new clothes for back to school?! It’s a new season and new trends have surfaced but I’m super busy with no time to get to the mall other than to shop for the boys. That’s why I love Trendsend! I’ve scheduled that a box gets delivered to my doorstep every other month. Each box is filled with three outfits – full on outfits that help to take the guesswork out of what to wear and how to pair everything. All you have to do is try on the outfits, decide what you like and send the rest (if anything) back in the prepaid shipping packet.
New Clothes for Back to School – Convenience is Key
I personally love this concept because it saves me time and I am introduced to brands, styles and colors that I wouldn’t normally pick for myself if I were perusing a department store. My eye is so trained to find the skinny jeans, black tops and minimalist jewelry but I also like the colors, patterns, statement pieces and such. I just never buy them on my own.
I’m all about ease when it comes to dressing lately and this outfit fits the bill.
Natural Stone Tassel Necklace: I can never seem to turn down a tassel necklace. I don’t know what it is – the length, the little bit of pizzazz. This one in particular caught my eye because its color is versatile and I can layer it with other delicates I already own.
Billabong Tank Girl Dress: A dress, to me, is a dream outfit. It’s one piece and all you have to do is put it on and you’re done. Well, that and a bit of accessorizing and then you are done. As a fan of stripes, I liked this dress once I unpacked it from the box, as well as the flattering skater cut.
Peyton Jensen Chambray Bomber: Bomber jackets are all over the fashion magazines and online so I was excited that one was packed in my latest box! Perfect for layering, this would’ve been a keeper if it wasn’t too big in the arms. Darn.
Did I tell you I love that I receive full outfits? It’s not that I can’t pair a top with bottoms, I do like to mix and match with different pieces, but this outfit is a perfect example of a great, put-together outfit.
Sanctuary Kira Tank: I wasn’t 100% sold on the print, but loved the silhouette and that the back had a bit of “wow” too! Lately I have been drawn to tops that have something special on the back – whether it is a different fabric than the front panel, or a biased cut.
Cloth & Stone Folded Pocket Pants: Comfort and fit come to mind when I tried these pants on. These lightweight joggers are perfect for fall weather (or year round in Florida!). BTW – they are on sale now!
So cute and definitely on trend, this outfit was my favorite of the three.
Free People Long Beach Tank: Super soft and a great cut, I love how this tank doesn’t cling to me but accentuates my shoulders. I wish the arm holes weren’t as big as they were, but you couldn’t tell underneath the next piece! At only $20, I would get a few.
Peyton Jensen Mila Raw Edge Sleeveless Plaid: I’m all about the plaid. When it first came back into style, I was a bit hesitant as it reminded me of my college years up at SUNY Albany. I’d wear plaid button downs all the time (partly because it was fashionable and partly because it was COLD there). Today’s plaid is much more feminine. The raw hems on this sleeveless shirt add a nice touch and it gives this outfit a bit of an edge (no pun intended).
XCVI Josette Skirt: I like skirts but usually only wore them to the office – pencil skirts being my all-time favorite. I was a bit skeptical about this skirt, but when I put it on it was comfortable and sporty.

Alli Smith says
All three outfits are cute. Number three is my favorite, but number one is a close second. The all look super comfortable and I’m all about comfort.
These look like some fantastic options for back to school. The style and comfort are very appealing to me.

So Outfit one sends me to everyday. Love on the tee shirt, love on the dress. It’s easy, and can be packed quick, which for me travel is my life. I love that you have clothes for back to school trendsend for MOMS .. it’s not just about the kids!
Thanks Dana (love your name BTW!)! I think it needs to be about the moms a bit too! 😉
Really cool and cute outfits! So simple, comfortable yet stylish. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Pier! My pleasure!
Becky @ Disney in your Day says
All of them are so cute! I really like the top in outfit #2.
Summer @ Coffee With Summer says
I’ve been interested in Trendsend! I tried StitchFix but all of their clothes are too fancy and too big for me!
Summer, check out Trendsend. I think you’ll be happy. Stitchfix is great too – maybe you need to ask for a different stylist and be super detailed in that you don’t want fancy and need smaller sizes. Good luck!
I love that dress in the first outfit. Dresses are great because you can make them dressy or you can make them more casual.
Esther | The Cuteness says
Love them all! I think I like #1 the best, I can totally see it with booties for Fall.
Esther, I didn’t even think of pairing it with booties – awesome idea!!
Jacqui - @TradesofJacqui says
I love all three outfits, but, the dress with jean jacket is my fave!
Jacqui – it was the most comfy too of all of the outfits 🙂
These outfits are all great! They all look comfortable and stylish. Great choices here!
Jenn @ EngineerMommy says
I’ve never heard of Trendsend but you got some great outfits. I can definitely use some new clothing for the new school year. Thanks for sharing this!
You got some cute things! Love that first dress on you!
Rachel G says
I love that comfy tank dress! I have two in a similar style and they get worn a LOT because they look good and they aren’t uncomfortable in the heat!
Liz Mays says
Your new outfits from Trendsend rock! They’re all super cute. I like the idea of having new clothes for the school year.
I love outfits 2 & 3. If it was me I would probably chose #2 to keep. I think the shirt is super flattering and the pants look so comfortable.
Bites for Foodies says
I love the bomber jacket! I am in Italy for the summer and bomber jackets are all the rage here…I’ve yet to find one that fits me well though ;-(
I am so jealous that you are in Italy for the summer!! We went there for our honeymoon and I hope to go back soon – everywhere we went was so beautiful! Keep looking for the bomber jacket – I am sure you’ll find the perfect one!
Rebecca Swenor says
I happen to agree that the parents should get new outfits along with the kids too. Trendsend I am going to have to check. I literally love all three outfits you got and they all look comfy too. Thanks for sharing this subscription box.
All three outfits look comfortable yet stylish, but if I had to choose one, I’d go with number two. It’s too hot in South Florida to not be in loose clothing. 😉
Terri Beavers says
I really love these outfits. The second one is so my. I want that top and will check it out.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
Cool outfits! I am going to check out Pellerini too. I only have one more child in school and he might find something he might like for this back to school season. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Annemarie! Good luck with your back to school shopping 🙂
Vera Sweeney says
These are such cute outfits!! I know my kids are so excited for the new school year, the shopping has been this year.
Vera, the stylist did a great job!
Amanda Love says
That bomber jacket got me all hyped to wear it, it feels like it’ll look good with my usuals. Nice set of clothes up there! School season isn’t all just about the students anyway, and that’s why I like it.
Amanda, I completely agree with you that the bomber will look great with just about everything! 🙂
ooooo what fabulous looks!!!! you definitely found some killer outfits to head back to school in.
Heather Lawrence says
You know, I never really think to buy myself anything when it’s back to school!
Between trying to cloth three little ones, new back packs, lunch bags and shoes we are normally pinched this time of year. With winter almost around the corner it’s time for skinny jeans, bulky scarves and uggs. LOL!!
I’m dreaming of skinny jeans and UGGs about now…it’s like 96 degrees here!
Some great pieces! I love that dress on you- cute!
Thank you Cara!
Chubskulit Rose says
Love all the ones you selected. Back to school shopping can be stressful but glad there are so many options to choose from.
Thanks! I agree 🙂
I absolutely love the tank dress! It’s perfect for dressing casual-cute, and the necklace you paired with it is the perfect touch! Nice work! Thanks so much for sharing your latest purchases with us!
