Heading back to school is exciting for some people, and a little depressing for others.
In my case, I always loved the start of a new school year . . . from gathering all of the cutest notebooks, coordinating pens and pencils, to a new book bag . . . and, of course, shopping for new clothes!

Tanger Outlets has always been my first stop for back-to-school shopping.  Even now that I'm finished with school, I frequent Tanger Outlets weekly. (I know.  It's an addiction.)  You can create an entirely new wardrobe for less than half the price of shopping at the mall. Sounds like a no-brainer to me! 

Your fashion goals for class should go a little something like "effortlessly put-together" and COMFORTABLE. I cannot stress comfort enough.   I remember a few years back seeing a girl tumble over her pile of books wearing pumps.  Walk around campus all day in pumps?  No, thank you.  I'll take these J.Crew Factory camo loafers!  (Camo has been on-trend for quite a while now, and we won't see it going away anytime soon!)  J.Crew Factory has other really great options, too, if you aren't much of a print fan. 




You may notice that I'm wearing a clutch here and think, "Why would I wear this at school?"  Well, what about your plans after class?  I keep my clutch in my bag a majority of the time for something quick to grab instead of lugging all of my stuff around!


Next on my list:  boyfriend jeans.  I chose a perfectly distressed pair.   J.Crew Factory also has a great pair that isn't distressed. I paired mine with a chic, knit top that features a peter pan collar.
(Check back later this week to see how I dress this top up for Fall.)

Now, what shoes to wear with your boyfriends?  Booties, ballet flats, loafers, and even heels for your after-school events. What about a cute pair of converse?  I'm telling you, these jeans have it all. 






When buying for your new school year, think CLASSICS . . . items that can take you through the year and into the next . . . pieces you will be able to pair with countless others from your closet, to create multiple looks.  I found garments that weren't too trendy and would last.
One example of a timeless accessory:  Ray Ban Club master's.  Stop by the Sunglass Hut at Tanger Outlet, they have a great selection! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Make sure to check back later this week for more back-to-class and Fall style! 




Tanger Outlets will be hosting a KIDSTYLE Fashion Camp & Tour where you can meet Bridgit Mendler, singer, actress & Disney star on August 23rd at the Myrtle Beach HWY 17 location!
