{Style Finds} Back-to-School Shopping

Friday, September 6, 2013

I remember when my kids were really young, and it was so much fun to shop for them, and dress them in cute little outfits. Then they got opinions of their own, and it was a little less fun because we no longer shared the same opinion of 'cute,' when it came to clothes. Shopping became even less fun when they began outgrowing clothes and shoes that were hardly worn! Not to mention, their taste became more and more expensive, so every trip to the store ended in a battle over budget.

So I was thrilled when Kohl's offered to lighten the burden and send them back-to-school shopping this year. My son, however, wrinkled his nose at the prospect of shopping somewhere other than the mall. Until, that is, he saw all the great brands Kohl's carries...like Nike, Adidas, Fila and Levi's.(Not to mention Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez and Lauren Conrad, hello!?)

It didn't take him long to round up a bunch of great stuff for school and weekends. And since the prices are so reasonable (and there are always extra sales and discounts!), I was able to agree to most everything.

The only thing my daughter cares about are shoes, so she spent most of her time in that department, while I snatched up some cute and comfortable outfits for her. They even have a great selection of dressier items and dance/gymnastics leotards.

The kids were having so much fun checking out the store, that I was able to explore the Home, Kitchen and Organizing departments. I swear this store has everything but food!

We left with armloads of new things, but somehow still managed to save more money than we spent!? How is that possible? And since we got all the shopping done in one spot, we weren't worn out and bickering. That's priceless!

  4. Great stuff!! I just went looking for tennis shoes for my three year old son. He luckily doesn't care but I am picky...I want keep it cute for as long as possible. The choices are athletic type shoes or shoes with Disney characters on them! And they cost $45+! I found some cute Adidas at Nordstrom Rack and ended up ordering another pair online. I need to check Kohls more often:)

  6. I haven't been to Kohl's in forever - maybe I need to go check it out this weekend. Both of my kids still need new shoes. We got most of the clothing basics covered at Old Navy and Gap.

  7. The best part about Kohl's is you pretty much always walk out with a receipt just like yours - always saving more than you spent. I know it's a marketing thing but dang, I feel great when I get to show my husband how much I saved him :)

  8. Oh and I really dread when my kids don't share the same opinion for cute as I do :) I know some people wonder why I try to dress my b/g twins coordinating or matching all the time but it's because I know the time is very limited on getting to do that!

  9. my kids used to wear whatever I bought, but now even my 7 year old boy has become picky. I don't have a Kohls in Canada but I've shopped at the one in Detroit and love it.

  10. Overall I like Kohls. But you have to be careful because some things are marked higher than they are at other stores just so they can put them on sale and show you how much you saved.
