Dressing for the First Day of School: Some DOs and DON'Ts

With summer already starting to wind down, soon the kids will be out of their flip-flops and swimsuits and back into their "regular" clothes. That's right, the first day of school is only a few weeks away, and with it comes the big question: what to wear?

Now some kids like to dress themselves, while others need help from their moms and dads. Here are some guidelines to help you and your child settle on the best getup to start the year off right: 

Embrace personal style, and feel free to express it - but don't try too hard. (The outfit shouldn't be a desperate cry for attention.) Be smart, but not too formal, and choose comfortable clothes that fit well, and be sure any new togs have been through at least one wash cycle, so they won't itch.

Brand Spotlight: Tea Collection

Who doesn’t love outfitting their child in stylish, super-soft cotton? If you’ve been paying attention to youth fashion trends then you already know all about the Tea Collection, a fun line of casual kids' wear that melds modern design with a cross-cultural sensibility and adventurous spirit. Launched in San Francisco in 2002 by co-founders Emily Meyer and Leigh Rawdon—avid travelers who regularly venture far and wide to find inspiration for their original designs—Tea has since expanded into high-end boutiques everywhere. In 2012, the brand beat out the likes of Ralph Lauren, J. Crew’s Crewcuts and Stella McCartney Kids to win a coveted Cribsie award for best all-around children’s wear for stylish tots.

Now here's the best news: we at Moxie Jean have amassed a rather extensive Tea set of our own. There’s so much good Tea for sale right now in our upscale resale shop, everything from rompers, hoodies and dresses to jackets, skirts and sweaters—the same top-quality stuff you’d find at, say, Nordstrom, only at a much nicer price. 

Take this brilliant striped shirt for boys, size 6-12 months, just $8.99 (originally $25).

Moxie Money: What is it and how do I get it?

Moxie Jean loves to have our customers purchase the clothes their kids need next using their "Moxie Money." Put simply, Moxie Money is store credit. It comes in the form of a discount code and can be applied to your purchase during checkout. 

Right now, you can earn $25 in Moxie Money for every $100 you spend (after discounts). All purchases from July 24 through September 15, 2014 will be added up and Moxie Money will be issued on September 16, 2014 via email. 

Spend $100 = Get $25 in Moxie Money

Spend $200 = Get $50 in Moxie Money

Spend $300 = Get $75 in Moxie Money

Spend $400 = Get $100 in Moxie Money

Moxie Money earned through promotions or giveaways may not be traded for cash.

Families can also earn Moxie Money by selling their gently used clothing to Moxie Jean. When you fill and return a Moxie Jean Mailer Bag, we'll send you a check for the payout amount listed here. BUT - we also bump up those cash payouts by 25% when we give them out in the form of store credit - Moxie Money. 

So let's say your clothing payout was $30. We'll send you an email with a code worth $37.50 in Moxie Money to spend in the store. You can always cash out that $30, but it's so much more fun to spend it on what your kids need next!

If you earn additional Moxie Money, whether through promotions or additional clothing sent in, we will add it up into a single Moxie Money code. Only one code may be used per transaction.
