Back to School Shopping for Mom

by | Style | 3 comments

So much focus on Back-to-School is on the kids and rightly so.  They definitely need great backpacks (my oldest will need two this year!), clothes (thankful for uniforms – not cheaper, just easier!) and shoes.  Mom’s are busy getting everyone organized, creating carpools, registering for sports teams, dance classes and thinking about our own schedules, too.

I don’t know about you but I like a little something new to wear on the first day of school, too!  This year mine will be at three different schools and start on three different days….so that three ensembles for me, right?!?!?

It’s no secret that I love J.Crew.  Here are a few things I picked up when they announced their Buy More, Save More Sale yesterday.  Shoppers receive 25% off purchases of $100 and 30% off purchases of $200 or more.

Back to School for Mom

A great white shirt is a must.  I keep this one fresh and ready to go by having two.

Navy dress shirt dress

I love nothing better than a dress to throw on and be ready in minutes.  Let’s face it.  Do we really have more than a few minutes on a school morning, especially the days we need to “be somewhere” right after am carpool.  This is one of my current favorites.  I just picked up the navy version of this easy dress I can’t stop wearing.

Because it is still hot here until October, shorts are still a possibility.  Loved these cute things!  They are great with a white shirt or this gold one I’ve loved.

Other picks and items I added during this great sale…

Tomorrow, I’ll round up easy dinner recipes for that crazy first week.  Stay tuned!
