Back To School Fashion With Lands End 

29 Aug

Back to school is a breeze when your kids wear uniforms in my opinion. It’s also a money saver. This year I’m focused on my two younger children. I have a middle school and elementary school kids both in the same school and both in uniforms. 


Lands End is my go to for uniforms. My daughter’s colors are navy blue and white. I don’t know how my daughter grew so fast but I’m glad Lands End has her size, quality and styles that she needs. My son has been in the men’s section for a while now but Lands End can also help with that. Basic colors for him are khaki and navy blue. 

She loves skorts and with the weather being comfortable she can start out the school year wearing it. 
School Uniform Girls Active Skort $35

· Moisture-wicking enhancement allows for quick dry when working up a sweat

· Hidden waistband pocket for any gear or gadgets needed when exercising

· Hidden shorts keep her completely covered and confident while the skort gives off a cute feminine flair


Her school allows her to wear cardigans. We love this one from Lands End. 
School Uniform Girls Performance Button Front Cardigan $45

· Resists fading and piling for long-lasting color and comfort

· Easy-care blend feels soft as cotton

· Fully-fashioned construction for a great fit


Polos or button down collar shirts is also part of my daughter’s uniform. Here’s a great one. Love that it’s 100% cotton. 

School Uniform Girls Short Sleeve Fem Fit Mesh Polo $18

· 100% cotton mesh fabric is breathable and feels soft from the start

· Shaped side seams and neat side vents for untucked days

· Enhanced fabric keeps colors true and resist stains


Can’t go back to school without a brand new cool backpack. You know Lands End came correct with these. 
Classmate Backpacks

Double-touch bottoms, comfort-foam padded back panels & shoulder straps, long-lasting zippers and numerous pockets for organizing made easy. Backpacks come in five sizes made for every kid in school – preschool to high school. Personalize your backpack by adding a monogram, embroidery or both!

Comfort In Kids Lee Jeans 

26 Aug

5 Star Apparel Showroom in Manhattan is filled with kids clothing from different name brands. It’s like walking into a huge dream walk in closet with clothes at your service. I met with Brianne Tursi Manz (Stroller In The City) for a blogger event. 

Once there I took a look at what all the brands had to offer. Lee Jeans stretch jeans with soft jogging material and a drawstring  were the jeans I knew my daughter would like. My rule is always comfort first. 

Kids grow so fast so I’m always thinking ahead when buying clothes. My daughter loves dressing herself and putting outfits together.


When my daughter tried on her Lee Jeans she was able to bend, run, do a few cartwheels and just enjoy her Lee Jeans and style it with the Arizona Printed Peplum Cami (JC Penney) and her favorite glitter slip ons from (KidPik). 


Disclosure: Thank you Brianne and 5 Star Apparel for the jeans. Opinions are our own 100% as always. 

Extra Money In Your Pockets With #GrouponCoupons #ad  

25 Aug

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I’ve been clipping coupons for years and there’s been times when I went shopping and forgot my coupons or they ripped accidentally (that happened recently) or they expired (the worst). Was there a easier way to carry coupons with me without ever forgetting them? 

When Groupon Coupons was introduced I was all over their site. I couldn’t believe all the coupons and promo codes from brands I regularly shop at. Coupons available when I need it and the best part on my phone. No losing, forgetting or accidentally ripping in my bag. Groupon Coupons goes wherever I go. 

I love the money I save at restaurants and my favorite retail shops like: 

JCPenney

Foot Locker

Nike

Macy’s

Bed Bath & Beyond

Target

Best Buy

Lands End

Starbucks 

Olive Garden

Panera Bread


I’ve been taking advantage of the awesome promo codes for back to school. Foot Locker has $20 off when you spend $120. My son can’t fit kid sneakers so his sneakers are in the men’s section. This coupon will come in handy. 

Land’s End has 25% off which is great for uniforms for my kids and free shipping when you spend $50. 

LL Bean has up to 50% off and free shipping. Their backpacks are great, very sturdy and are on sale.

I’ve even gotten a mani/pedi for $20. Yes!!

I also downloaded the Groupon App on my phone. Don’t miss out on all the savings available 24 hours a day.

The Moms Back To School Bash Recap #TheMomsBTS

24 Aug

The Moms held their Back To School Bash at 100 Barclay Street. They also had their live Sirius XM Stars Show and I was happy to be a part of it on the 25th floor with beautiful views. This is my second time on their show. We talked about anxiety, nutrition, sleep, fashion and first day of schools cheers or not. The Moms were also celebrating being on the August cover of New York Family Magazine. Have you seen the cover? Get your copy quickly. 


The Back To School Bash was held in the lobby of 100 Barclay. Sponsors included Fruit Of The Loom, Subway, Chobani and Kidbox. 



We are fans of Subway and Chobani. Back to school lunches will be healthy with these two. There are so many varieties to choose and I love that my kids eat healthy. Well some of the time. As long as they get their veggies and fruit I’m happy. Have you seen the Siracha Mango Chobani? Love Greek yogurt. We love Chobani Kids and Adult products. 

Fruit Of The Loom has been a favorite of mine for so long now my kids use them. From t-shirts to underwear Fruit Of The Loom knows exactly what parents and kids need. Comfortable and great quality which never shrinks or stretches out of shape. I love the new Breathable underwear for women. With the hot, muggy weather we’ve been having I can honestly say these underwear has kept me dry. I am going to stock up on these. From boy shorts to bikinis Fruit Of The Loom got you covered. I also love the bonus packs where you get three free items. Check out their web page: http://www.fruit.com/

Kidbox is  a box full of stylish pieces from well-loved brands, selected just for your special kid. Whenever you keep the whole box, they will commit a donation of new clothes to children in needy families. 


We had a blast and want to congratulate The Moms in all their success. Thank you for always including my family in your fab events.

18 Aug

I attended a blogger event with Stroller In The City ( Brianne Tursi Manz) at the 5 Star Apparel Showroom and was excited to see the latest in kids clothing and the hard work and sweat that goes into giving kids the best quality in name brand fashion.

My daughter loves dressing up and being a mini fashionista means she must be comfortable first and foremost. Vigoss Jeans has just what we’re looking for. 
Not only do Vigoss Jeans look great they are skinny stretch jeans. She paired her jeans with a lace high neck woven top  from Arizona (JC Penney) and glitter slip ons from (KidPik).


As much as she wants to wear her Vigoss Jeans to school they will be her go to jeans on her off days from school since she wears a uniform. She loves the fit and style and loved posing for pictures.

JCPenney’s Partnership With Y’s Academic Achievement Initiative & Back To School Fashion

10 Aug

Whether it’s moving into a dorm for the first time, or getting ready for the first day of high school, one thing that students will plan extensively this fall is their “first day look.” JCPenney offers a wide assortment of affordable, fashion finds, from brands like Arizona, that are perfect for completing the look, and expressing style individuality, this new school year. 

I fell in love with the bedding as I love to start the school year off with new bedding for the kids. The print is fun and colorful on the comforter and sheets and they are very soft. The kids love the back pillows. The furniture flair cover was used on their beds but can be used on a small couch in your dorm room or apartment. 

I might not be going back to school but I can dress like it with a mom fashionista twist. Love the Arizona jeans and cute tops. They are so comfortable and affordable. I love the outfits I received. 



Along with great fashions this back-to-school season, JCPenney is expanding its 20-year partnership with the Y to include an exciting way for customers to give back. For each pair of Arizona jeans sold from July 15th to September 2nd, JCPenney will be donating $1 to support the Y’s academic achievement programs up to $250,000.  

The partnership will support the Y’s Academic Achievement Initiative, which aims to support academically at-risk students through evidence-based, high-quality summer learning loss prevention and afterschool programs.
“With jeans serving as a key back-to-school fashion staple, Arizona’s great fitting, affordable denim makes it the ideal brand to leverage our support of the Y this season. By simply purchasing a pair of stylish Arizona jeans, moms will not only be sending their kids back-to-school with confidence, but also helping fellow moms across the country set their kids up for success this school year.”
JCPenney will also be assisting the Y this back-to-school season with a community event at the Hollywood YMCA in Los Angeles. The event will include backpack giveaways, free haircuts from jcp salon, mini-makeovers from Sephora inside JCPenney for moms and teens, vision screenings from JCPenney Optical, photos from JCPenney Portraits and Arizona jean fittings as well as giveaways, music, food and more.

Stay tuned for a JCPenney $25 gift card giveaway!!!
