Hi Fashion Loves,
It’s that time of year again where the hustle and bustle of being a parent becomes real (so I’ve heard), kids are a little less excited about Summer ending, but are enjoying the idea of new clothes, friends, and a little time away from the parents. That’s right, it’s back to school time and Fall is right around the corner. I have been in school a long time and I get some of the same emotions each time around. After a diploma, two degrees, and now classes toward a terminal degree, I am still dressing for the classroom! Buying new school clothes excites me, because shopping is my “jam” and it gives me a good excuse to find some great deals!
It’s hard to believe that I still get excited about school clothes, especially since I buy them myself. But, honestly, I probably spend less money on school clothes now than my mom did when I was in grade school. I shop for quality, longevity and style, all on a budget. I have been school shopping for years and in 2008 I found the Goodwill! Goodwill has been my go to for about 60% of my current wardrobe, but it has especially come in handy when wanting to refresh my closet for school fashion! Have you shopped at Goodwill lately? If you haven’t you should! @Goodwillgrmi is holding a contest this month for the best Back to school look! YOU SHOULD JOIN THE FUN! Post your back to school looks on Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter and hashtag #GWBack2School as well as tag @goodwillgrmi (IG) @goodwillgr (twitter) for a chance to be featured on a Billboard in September!
This entire look minus the book bag and boots was scored at one of my local Goodwill’s for under $15! I was so excited to pull together a simple yet appropriate look for my first week in a new classroom. Lately I have had a hard time finding nice fitting denim that was not distressed (as that is the “in trend” right now). I lucked up and found both this striped tee and these denim pants at the same Goodwill. Talk about a good day! I decided to snag these two pieces as they are staple pieces for a school wardrobe, and both can and will be restyled in various ways throughout this school year (stay tuned for more looks)!
I paired this look with some booties I got on sale at Target at the beginning of the Summer and an old scarf I thrifted last year, and I am school ready! Thanks to all the good quality and style Goodwill provides, I did not have to go far to pull together a look I was excited about! Tell me what you thought of this look, and don’t forget to share your Back to school looks on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter using the hashtags #GWBack2School and tagging @goodwillgrmi (IG) @goodwillgr (Twitter). I can’t wait to see your looks!
