Thank you to adidas + Collective Voice for sponsoring this post.
The number of lessons I’ve learned from my kids are countless, but one they remind me of constantly: it’s all about the gear. Optimal performance requires hard work…. and swag. I can totally get on board with this, especially when it means preparing for the ultimate test: SCHOOL! Look good, feel good, do good…. it’s all a trickle effect. I wish I recorded their faces when I told them they could pick out some new gear from adidas for the new school year. From classic originals to colorful sets, sneakers for all, they were feeling pretty confident in their new threads….
It’s funny how each outfit reflects their personalities. Left to right: Laid back, serious/witty, life of the party, and quintessential littlest brother who needs to be bold to stand out.
When he is not playing sports, he is thinking about sports or just trying to get one of his brothers to have a catch with him. He picked out a casual weekend look (perfect for attending his little brother’s flag football games) or hanging out with friends.
Nothing makes getting dressed easier than a monochromatic look. This guy has the earliest wake up call (school starts WELL before 8am) – sleek and comfortable in all black for the win.
Big fifth grader on campus right here! He has always been drawn to fun prints and bold colors… and has a slight obsession with jerseys. He also has no time for things like tying shoes which makes this slip on style perfect for a 10 year old on-the-go.
And our little ray of sunshine…. he attended approximately 7,432 of his brother’s games before ever playing in one of his own, and now that he is old enough to play, he is all about performance gear. This kid doesn’t miss a beat… he takes note of all of the matching sets worn by his favorite professional athletes and he carefully lays out his “look” for the next day before he goes to bed.
And they are almost off! It’s always exciting to see what a new school year will bring (and how much they will grow). I think it’s safe to say we are ready for it. Well, minus the getting up early for school part 🙂
