It seems to be back-to-school season in the South, as another Real Housewives of Atlanta offspring just started another year of studying for tests, basketball games, and more. Yesterday we showed you Ariana Biermann’s adorable first day ensemble as she got ready for her first day of seventh grade, and today, August 12, it’s all about Kandi Burruss’ little lady, Riley!

Like Kim Zolciak before her, proud mama Kandi couldn’t resist posting the requisite first day of school photo featuring Ms. Riley, and after peeping the sweet pic, we can totally understand why. Kandi captioned the Instagram post, “Just dropped my baby girl @rileyburruss off for the first day of 7th grade! Wow time flies! #middleschool.”


In the photo, Riley is totally rocking her school uniform. Even though the navy and khaki outfit is a bit boring, the tween does her best to liven it up by adding a bracelet, thick-rimmed black glasses (right on trend, girlfriend) and a black and neon pink binder for a necessary splash of color. Todd’s daughter, Kaela, may be the one starting the clothing line, but we hope she takes some pointers from Riley, because this kid’s got some serious style!

As Kandi said in her caption, it’s hard to believe that Riley is well into middle school considering we remember meeting her on RHoA as a little girl, but with her big heart and awesome attitude we know she’ll do great in seventh grade.

Can you believe that Riley is starting seventh grade already? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
