I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit nervous or worried about Kennedy’s first day of kindergarten. I know she is a smart and strong little girl, but I hope she’ll make lots of friends, her teacher will like her, and she succeeds. Normal mom concerns, I’m sure.
I am not sure about Kennedy, but I’m sure feeling those first day jitters. What do we put in the backpack? Where do we go on the first day of kindergarten? Will she think I’m a loser if I want to kiss and hug her at drop off?
Luckily we’re checking off one of those questions today – we’ve got the cutest first day of kindergarten outfit ideas! Kohl’s is always at the top of our list for fashionable and affordable clothes for the whole family. Not to mention, they’re having their big friends and family sale right now!

For this post, we put together two back to school outfit options on Kennedy, along with one outfit idea for mom!
First Day of Kindergarten Outfit Idea #1: Dress with High Tops
I just love how trendy and cute this look is for Kennedy. Pairing a simple dress with some glittery high tops is not only a fun fashion statement, but is totally functional. To amp up the whole look, I styled her hair in a half-up top knot. Finally, you can’t forget the adorable and classic pink Jansport backpack!
Kennedy definitely brought on the personality while wearing this sassy outfit!
First Day of Kindergarten Outfit Idea #2: Ruffles and Sparkles
You can never go wrong with ruffles and sparkles, am I right? For this look, we paired a fun ruffle top with some sequin embellished jeggings. What a fun, trendy accent to incorporate! The quilted Mary Jane shoes give this look a bit of classic girly feel, while still maintaining comfort.
This is such a precious outfit option for the first day of kindergarten, and she’ll be sure to stay comfy all day.
Kindergarten Mama Outfit Idea
Mama doesn’t have an excuse to be a hot mess all the time at drop off, pick up, and school events. I’m all about throwing on a pair of jeans, t-shirt, and sandals, and thought this outfit was a fun elevated spin on that. I will always love a distressed raw hem jean, this blouse is elegant and easy to wear, and the studded sandals look so expensive but won’t break the bank!
My heart may not be ready for the first day of kindergarten, but safe to say our closets are.
