With the daylight becoming increasingly shorter and the fireflies slowly disappearing, summer is quickly coming to a close. However, with the season ending, new doors are simultaneously opening — quite literally! For many children, the end of summer can only mean one thing: the start of school! For parents, the new beginnings also mean the time has come to dish out the dough on a new back to school wardrobe.
While some parents — including Jennie Garth — luck out with assigned school uniforms, others are left to spend their last few days of summer searching for great deals on back to school clothing. Among the long list of tees, pants, dresses, and new shoes, is — more often than not — a great pair of denim duds for the little one. A staple for school, a nice pair of jeans offer parents several options — while perfect for a run around on the playground, the look can also be dressed up with a cute blouse or polo.
Spotted from New York City to Los Angeles, celebrity tots have gone denim!
