Back to School with Uniforms from


More and more kids are wearing uniforms to school.  My six year old, Rosie, goes to a public charter school, that requires uniforms.  The school is math and science focused with many outdoor activities.  The uniform reflects that with jeans, navy or khaki bottoms and school t-shirt tops.  It’s always a challenge to find the right uniform bottoms that reflect Rosie’s love of comfort with something that makes her feel girly.  This year we found the perfect solution at  I love Cookies Kids. There are so many choices and the prices are excellent.  We have a store nearby in our outlet mall and this time I ordered online.

As soon as I opened the website, I saw School Uniforms. has great sales…

I appreciate having good search filters on shopping sites, don’t you?  It’s great to be able to avoid paging through items and items that aren’t a good fit.  I clicked on “School Uniforms” “Girls 7-20” and “Shorts/Skorts”.

Perfect!  This is exactly what i was looking for.  Rosie likes elastic waists, so I can narrow my choices down a little more…. this Nautica catches my eye.

I love the navy.  But we need variety, so I’m going to check the khaki…

I can see the stitching around the pockets a little better in this picture and I love the price!

The checkout process at is easy.  Cart time!

I signed in and then I review my order before purchasing…


Confirmation email – love the communication updates!

I ordered on 8/1 and the skorts came about 8/7.

Rosie tried them on and declared they were her new FAVORITES.  I was thrilled – $12.99 for Nautica quality, arrived in time for school, elastic waistband, skort so she could play on the monkey bars?  They were my new FAVORITES too *smile*.

Fashion show time!

Do your children wear uniforms?  Do they like it?  Do you like it?  Rosie is only starting first grade, so we only have one year of uniforms behind us.  I liked it very much last year, it simplified our morning routine.  The children bond – Rosie always notices other children wearing the uniform shirts outside of school and points out that they are “School Kids” too!  Now, she’s a #CookiesKids as well.  As she gets older, she might be more interested in fashion but so far, so good.  I’ve heard the kids at a non-uniform school comparing stores, but so far Rosie seems happy with what she has.

Have you ever shopped at Cookies before?  What do you like about it? also has schools register with their site to take the guesswork out of “what is allowed”.  It’s easy to see if your school is registered.  Just hover over “School Uniforms” and a link to the registry will pop up.

When you’re picking up that uniform, you can also pick out a fun backpack.  Ah, maybe this is the place for more individual creativity!  Disney Princesses….. Cars 2….   Batman….  Trailmaker… and North Face.  There are even lunch boxes.  Great choice of accessories for school.

Do you know how got it’s name?  I always thought it was because kids like cookies and it’s easy to remember.  Well, NOT!  It’s actually named after a person.  Cookie and his brother Marvin actually started as a toy store in Jamaica, Queens (hey, I’ve been there!).  When the toys were a success, they used their profits to expand into clothing.  This was all in 1972.  Each year, they used their profits to expand.  Adding a third part partner, Sonny, they started expanding to new locations.

By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
