Back 2 School with The Mills at Jersey Gardens

Hey dolls!  Hope your all staying cool in this heat!  

Even though the weather is hot, hot and the last thing you want to think about is back to school.  It's almost that time!  Summer sure does fly by.    I had the opportunity to go shopping for back to school with a few of my favorite bloggers at The Mills at Jersey Gardens.

With 200 outlet stores and more stores coming soon, it's the perfect place to find everything you need for back to school.  They have all the trends at super affordable prices.  

Here are some of my favorite trends for back to school!

It makes me laugh to think that I wore these in the 90's and now they are back on trend.  Their perfect for boys or girls, and can be worn with just about anything.

Another trend that Isn't going anywhere is florals for fall!  Here I am rocking this super cute floral dress with cut-outs from Garage Clothing.  
When school starts it can still be warm out so the cut-outs are perfect for those warmer days in the beginning.  Once the weather gets chillier you can just add a denim jacket and booties.   

Denim is always on the top of my nephews back to school list.  When were at The Mills the Levi's outlet is a must.  With most jeans priced at $39.99 it's perfect for moms on a budget.

Maxi Living

Dress: H & M | Sunnies & Bracelets: Forever 21 

From Spring to Summer, there's nothing like a maxi dress. 

They can be edgy or super feminine depending on the pattern or style.  It's a no brainer that you need not just one, but a few in your closet.

Prints And A Bump!

Bright prints and bumps on this Monday!  

Styling this growing bump has not been easy in this summer heat.  Luckily I can wear easy dresses like this shift dress that I got while I was down the shore.  The print and tassel details are super cute whether your an expecting mommy or not.  I wore it with heels for dinner, but you can easily wear flats for a day look.

Hey loves!  Hope you had a great July 4th weekend.

Cropped pants can be a tricky trend to pull of, especially if their wide leg.  I think the easiest way to make them work is balance.  Don't go to wide on the top, keep it sleek or you might end up looking sloppy.  Another tip is wear heels, I'm a flats girl but you need an elevated look.  If you don't want to do a high heel, opt for a stacked one like I did here.  

Keeping the print neutral like I did with these Banana Republic ones is always an easy way to embrace the trend.  I can always rely on Banana to keep me on trend without trying to hard. 

These pants can go from work to cocktail, my best advice is to just have fun with them.
