Today we have the ultimate boys back to school shopping guide and lookbook because boy moms love dressing their kiddos well too! I’m sharing everything you need for back to school in every price range with loads of choices including high and low options, super soft denim and all kinds of wearable looks for little boys. I included layers for any other parents out there like me who live in a city with four seasons.
HUGE DEAL ALERT!
Towards the end there is a section with back-to-school boy finds for under $10. The H&M T-shirts in there are $2.40 right now with the coupon code listed at the bottom plus free shipping if you spend $60! They come in sizes 18 months to 10 years and there are several adorable styles!
Please note—everything labeled (LTFL FAVE!) is something we own, bought this year or have used. Please “PIN IT!” if you love it or Share it with your friends with boys!

I’ve done some shopping in stores, but am just starting my online shopping. There are deals to be had, friends! I’m including coupon codes below for the stores that have them. While some of the super cute sweaters do NEED to end up in Bodhi’s closet for special occasions, school photos and family photos, basics are where it’s at!
All in all, I have found that the best deals on basics are from H&M and Target’s new Cat and Jack line. Almost everything in the “UNDER $10” section is from H&M and you can use the 20% off coupon to take those prices down even further. Most of the shirts are just $4.99 (So $4 after the coupon!)! I’m taking advantage of that tonight!
I’ve also been surprised at the prices on some of the pieces at J.Crew and J.Crew Factory store although I plan to wait on the Factory pieces until a better sale code comes through (typically within a week). What shopping do you have left to do? How can I help you? Happy back-to-school shopping friends!
