Back To School Fashion For Less From KMart



If you have kids, you know that Back To School shopping can be BRUTAL!  As if it weren’t hard enough to find all of the supplies that teachers need without running to a hundred different places, throw in clothes shopping and it’s enough to make any parent throw their hands in the air and walk away.  I have been on the hunt for great clothes for my kids and the selection at KMart was wide enough that we were able to find something for all three kids in one trip…how awesome is that?!


My sons are 12 and 14 and it can be harder to shop for them than my daughter!  Although they are still young, they are HUGE for their age and have been in men’s clothes for quite some time now.  It can definitely be a struggle finding things in men’s sizes that are still ‘cool’ enough that my sons are willing to wear them.  Thank goodness for KMart!  I was only able to find one outfit for each of the boys, but I have to tell you I was surprised I walked out with anything for them at all.


Brayden is starting middle school and wanted something that was still fun and fashionable for his first day.  We were able to find this awesome Marvel Deadpool Men’s Graphic T-Shirt and Basic Editions Men’s Relaxed Fit Jeans in medium wash to create an awesome ensemble that Brayden can’t wait to wear to school.  The Deadpool shirt is cut for a roomy fit — in case you also like to over-indulge in chimichangas like Deadpool.  This all-cotton tee offers the benefit of breathable jersey knit which is perfect for hot Arizona days.  The jeans are the only pair your son will need when the day calls for toughness.  Heaven knows, any middle schooler will put some wear and tear on jeans quickly.  Built from cotton denim, these pants offer durability and the straight leg adds roomy comfort.  The medium wash provides crisp, versatile style, while the contrast stitching enhances the authentic look.


An outfit that my teenager loved so much he actually SMILED??  (GASP!!)  Be still my beating heart…thank you KMart!  This Men’s Transformers Decepticon Graphic T-Shirt and Basic Editions Men’s Relaxed Fit Jeans in lite wash pair together so well and Kenny is LOVING IT!  The Transformers shirt rocks a cool, modern look.  Decorated with the iconic image of a Decepticon, this short-sleeve tee rocks with retro style.  Featuring a crew neck and a roomy cut, this shirt offers the comfort of cotton-rich jersey knit, another perfect tee for hot Arizona days.  Just like the jeans Brayden got, the lite wash version is every bit just as durable and comfortable as it’s medium wash counterpart.


My sons and my daughter are SO completely different.  Jade loved every single thing she saw at KMart and wanted to fill the whole cart up with it all!  I think her picks are fabulous and they look so good on her.


This is Jade’s favorite outfit of the things that she picked out.  The Basic Editions Kitten Graphic T-Shirt and Route 66 Girls Bootcut Jeans in gray look so good together!  Now Jade can show off her awesome sense of humor in the comfy cotton-rich fit tee.  With a screen-print design of a cute kitten wearing sunglasses and a caption that reads, “#Selfie,” this short-sleeve shirt is sure to inspire laughs and smiles whenever she wears it.  Pair it with these adorable jeans and you’ve got an outfit that’s just too cute!


Sporting the same jeans as above, this Leave A Little Sparkle Wherever You Go Graphic T-Shirt really pops!  Glam takes any girl’s fashion over the top with this glitter-print graphic T-shirt.  The sparkling design reads, “Leave a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go,” lending her casual style some inspiration.  A modern cut keeps this short-sleeve tee fitted, with a longer hem and a hint of flared shape.


This outfit is one of the cutest things I’ve seen all week.  The I’m Really A Mermaid Graphic T-Shirt and Route 66 Girls Skinny Bootcut Jeans pair together just perfectly.  Keep your little one showing off her casual chic style with this tee.  Styled with a glittery “I’m Really a Mermaid” design, this short-sleeve tee combines glam with jersey knit comfort.  The cap sleeves and drop tail hem bring her style up to date with modern shape, as does a cute keyhole cutout in back.  As if the shirt weren’t comfy enough, pairing it with these jeans makes it too comfortable to resist.  Your daughter will always be chic and relaxed when she wears these girls’ skinny bootcut jeans from Route 66.  Created to move with her, these pants offer a stretch design that makes playtime more enjoyable. These jeans offer a slim fit through the hip and thigh, ending in a bootcut opening, and an interior waistband adjusts the fit.

The thing that surprised me most about our trip to KMart (yes, even more so than my boys actually finding clothes they like) was the cost.  Can you believe that I got EVERYTHING on our shopping trip for only $72?!  That’s CRAZY cheap!  Thanks to KMart, our Back To School budget will stretch even farther while the kids look and feel great.  Head down to your local KMart for all of your Back To School shopping needs and see how much you can save!

Back To School Fashion For Less From Schoola



As a mother of three, I am always on the hunt for great deals when it comes to clothes.  As you all know I am a stay-at-home mom, so one income has to stretch quite a ways.  Schoola is the best way to save money on great Back To School clothes while supporting schools all over the United States.  You’ll get great prices on gently used clothes while benefiting young kids everywhere…what could be better than that?


My youngest will finally be heading off to school this year so with three kids to shop for I’m more budget conscious than ever.  The children here have uniform school shirts, so I thought I’d order them some new shorts/pants for the upcoming school year.  (Although I ordered all bottoms, most of the shirts pictured with the items are from previous Schoola purchases.  I have been a long-time Schoola shopper, and donater, which is why I was super excited to partner with Schoola this Back To School season.)



Schoola carries clothes of all sizes, even men’s which is nice for kids that are still ‘kids’ but are large for their age like my boys.  My middle child is 12 years old but quite tall and wears a size 30 waist in men’s.  I was able to find a nice pair of Vintage Plaid shorts in a 30 waist that fit my son quite nicely.  These shorts were available at an incredible discounted price of $11.80, while full retail would be $38.00.



My 12 year old may be monstrous, but my 14 year old is even bigger.  He’s almost 6 foot tall and no doubt needs larger clothes than most 14 year olds.  Schoola to the rescue!  I was able to find these awesome GALAXY By Harvic Shorts for only $12 when retail price is $34.  The fit is perfect and they look fabulous, perfect for the new school year!

The selection of items my sons liked wasn’t super huge, so I found a few items for my daughter as we’re building her first time school wardrobe.



How cute are these Sonoma Life + Style pants?  My daughter absolutely loves the design on the pocket.  You wanna take a guess at the price?  $12!!  The retail price of these pants is $36 and we found them at a steal thanks to Schoola.



Every girl needs a great pair of jeans and thanks to Schoola we were able to score these super comfy Sonoma Life + Style jeans at the incredible price of $12.  My daughter loves the fit of these jeans and she can’t wait to wear them to school and show all her “new friends” that she will be meeting in just a few short weeks.



Pretty in pink as always 🙂 .  These Osh Kosh B’Gosh pants are just too stinkin’ cute!  The discounted price of $9 ($19 off retail) was too good to pass up and my daughter is super happy she picked out these cute pants.

OOFOS OOclogs…Feel The OO #Review


If you follow my blog, you know that I absolutely LOVE my OOFOS!  I didn’t wear anything besides my OOFOS sandals for the summer and my feet were in heaven the whole time.  Now that it’s getting colder, I found myself not wearing my OOFOS as often, and wearing slippers around the house and tennis shoes when I went out shopping.  I started having the most HORRIBLE aches and pains in my feet, especially in the morning…it became excruciating just to get out of bed.  After a trip to the doctor and leaving with a diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis, I knew it was because I changed my footwear.  The OOFOS had been supporting my high arches all summer and now without that support, my feet were screaming out for a solution.


With the colder weather on the horizon, I absolutely had to get my hands on the OOFOS OOclog Luxe Clog in Satin Graphite.  The closed toes make them the perfect footwear option for the fall and winter, and your feet will be supported all season long.  The clogs look great dressed up or down, so you can wear them just about anywhere.

I’m sure you’re wondering what makes OOFOS so special…the answer is pretty simple.  Most athletic shoe foams are designed to “rebound” and propel you forward. Revolutionary OOfoam does the opposite, absorbing 37% more shock with every step than traditional footwear foam.  The OOFOS patented footbed is designed with really great arch support to take the pressure off of ankles, knees and hips, as well as your lower back.

After receiving my OOFOS OOclogs, my feet were slightly less pained each day until the pain was completely gone.  I’m so thankful OOFOS has some year-round footwear options…without them I would be in a lot of pain this holiday season, unable to take joy in the little things that I love so much.  Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone you love, you can’t go wrong with giving the gift of OOFOS.

Kick Off Fall Right With A New Pair Of Lugz #Review


If you’ve followed my blog for even a short amount of time, you know that we LOVE Lugz here in my household.  With the colder weather approaching soon, I wanted to get my husband a nice new pair of shoes that would keep his feet warm and comfortable all day long.  Choosing Lugz was a no-brainer when it came time to pick new shoes for my husband.


My husband instantly loved the new Lugz Men’s Breech shoes in black/charcoal.  The Breech shoes are an updated Wallaby boot that allow you to change up your style while still maintaining all-day support for those who are on their feet a lot.  This boot features a compression molded foam core midsole for flex and cushion, flexastride memory foam insole for comfort and stability, and rugged slip resistant rubber soles for durability and grip.


The day after my husband’s new Lugz arrived was an annual festival we have in our little town.  After a HUGE parade there are lots of family friendly activities, rock wall climbing, and lots of other fun things.  The Lugz were great for my husband to wear with how much walking we did that day.  If he were in any of his other pairs of shoes his feet would’ve been hurting very badly.  These shoes were so comfortable, and provide such a great grip, that my husband was able to fly up that rock wall no problem!


  • Durabrush upper
  • Compression molded midsole
  • Flexastride molded memory foam insole
  • Durable rubber sole
  • ASTM-F1677, Mark II tested slip resistant rubber sole

When shopping for new shoes this fall, you can’t go wrong with a great pair of Lugz.
