$100 Back to School Shopping Giveaway

Have you finished your back to school shopping yet? Don’t worry if you haven’t. Comment on this post and you could win a $100 back to school shopping spree courtesy of Market MallMe? I’m nearly finished after one focused lunch hour skulking around Market Mall for sturdy, yet comfy kid’s clothes. And now that I’ve got a tween on my hands, back to school clothes have to be stylish, too. Here are some trendy (yet practical) outfits you and your kids are sure to adore.

pink camo pantsI’m a huge fan of jeggings for girls and Children’s Place has a massive selection. How cute are those pink camouflage ones? The camo trend is hot this year, and I loved this jaunty newsboy cap in the boy’s section.

MEXX also carried adorable boy outfits. Their jeans are both sturdy and fashionable. I found the most adorable cardigan for girls that had star shaped buttons here.

Sure, you might shell out a little more for pieces here, but they’ll last until your little sprout grows out of it. I love their layered looks and who could resist this sequined raccoon top?

    Love the camo Jeggings, I don’t have a go-to instead I just browse through everything with key pieces in mind

    Triple Flip and Ivivva are my girls’ faves… and now that we have a teenager, we had to go into Aritzia… their tastes just keep getting more expensive!!

    I want back to school clothes for me. Is that bad? I don’t really stock up for September, just deals as I see them for the kids,

    Ha! I’m the same. I love getting a new outfit for myself in early September. I blame Vogue and their September issue.

    We do a lot of shopping at Old Navy and Children’s Place for the girls. My kids really prefer function and comfort over fashion – none of them wear jeans! Old Navy has lots of options for soft clothing.

    We’re supposed to shop for back to school? Man these kids and their need for clothing. My favorite store is Herbergers in Kalispell, They have crazy deals

    I get 90% of the kids clothes from the gap, also something cute on sale and they last for what seems like forever!

    My faves are Gap and Old Navy for their excellent sales. But H&M is awesome too, especially for boys’ stuff.

    Old Navy is always my favourite! (Suzi)

    My stand-by stores for back to shopping are Children’s Place and Gap Kids. For school supplies, we go to Staples!

    I pick up my daughter’s duds at Target, Gap & Old Navy. Always good deals and cute stuff for girls. A few T’s, hoodies and leggings and she’s ready for Grade 2!

    I typically stock up on sales throughout the year, (and hide the clothes away) and then bring them out in September. Presto! Back to school shopping done!

    We love H&M because we can outfit the whole family, but since my daughter wears a uniform, we get the pieces we need at Old Navy & Children’s Place. Can never go wrong with these 3 stores! Love them! And ALL are at Market Mall! Once stop shopping!

      I’m with you. Getting it all done in one store (and one mall) is the best!

    Decisions! Where to start and shop first? Joy drop? The bay? Gap?

      Tough call, isn’t it? Thanks for commenting. Hope to see you drop by TravelswithBaggage again soon.

  19. Old Navy. I can shop for EVERYONE there, from my 4 year old to my 20 year old. Thanks for the chance.

    I like Gymboree for my youngest grandchildren as they have the cutest matching pieces in their lines and my older grandchildren like Aviva, Triple Flip and Justice so I can’t miss if I buy them something from there. For school supplies I like Staples because it is a one stop shop.
