3 Classy Back to School Looks that Won't Break the Bank - Crazy 8 BOGO for $0.08 Sale + Sitewide $14.99 Sale at Gymboree


Back to School with
Gymboree, Crazy 8 and Jane & Jack

Go Bold and Brighten up the halls this year with 3 classy Back to School looks!

School shopping can be both an exciting as well as a stressful time of the year. With supply lists and school clothes the cost of a new year can also get pretty high. That's why I enjoy shopping at Gymboree, Crazy 8 and Janie and Jack for my daughters' school clothes. Not only do they all have stylish clothes that my girls adore but they also have tons of great deals going on throughout the year! At the moment, Gymboree and Crazy 8 are running some amazing sales that I can't wait to tell you about... So why wait any longer?

(For a limited time only)

Gymboree Girls Skirt Outfit
From Graphic Tees to Jeans & Leggings as well as their awesome shoes and accessories!! With the cost of living being so high and the price of our necessities going up as well, it's hard to maintain a comfortable state of living and still keep our children happy when it comes to fashion. Sadly bullying is and will always be a problem throughout public schools and no child enjoys getting made fun of over their clothes and no parent wants their kids to feel left out or upset due to others. It's also true that no parent enjoys spending hundreds of dollars on clothes that our kids are sure to grow out of in just a few months, so sale shopping is a must and Gymboree seems to agree!

I've made up an example outfit from their site to show you how easy it can be to find cute and stylish outfits that will ensure that your wallet and your child will both stay happy.

First off, I've started with the classy Windowpane Bow Tee that normally runs for $19.95 but is currently on sale for just $14.95. The black and white color scheme allows this shirt to go along with just about any color of bottoms and has a little black bow permanently attached at the neckline that adds just enough charm to put a smile on any little girls face. (100% Cotton Jersey & Machine Washable)
I've paired the Windowpane Bow Tee with a knee length button skirt to continue the classy look that I was going for. What girl doesn't love a cute skirt? Since the button skirt is black and has a simple button accent on the front, it too can be paired with any top you choose and still look just as cute and classy! Not to mention that it's easy pull-on style that allow even the youngest girls to dress themselves with no trouble. The Button Skirt normally runs for $24.95 but is also just $14.99 during their Back to School Sale that Gymboree is currently running. (85% Cotton & 15% Polyester Ponte, Machine Washable)
If your daughter is a shoe lover like mine then these adorable Black and White Flats are the choice to finish off this classy, girlie look! I love how the front of the flats are black and the back half are white, which is different than most shoes you can find in department stores these days. There is also a black bow attached to the toe of each shoe - matching perfectly to the bow found on the Windowpane Bow Tee, their like a match made in heaven! The black and white flats are normally priced at $36.95 but of course you can get them for $14.99 if you show now (Manmade Materisls, Spot Clean Only)
You can leave the outfit like it is and let your fancy little girl sport the black and white look or add some color to the mix, like I did, with pair of colored tights ($8.95) and a Ribbon Bow Headband (currently on sale for just $2.99) in any color you choose, I settled on a nice pink color.

Gymboree Boys Outfits

Gymboree also has tons of boy clothes that'll have your handsome little men looking as slick and cool as ever!

Crazy 8's BOGO $0.08 SALE!

When I mentioned that Crazy 8 was having an amazing sale... I wasn't joking aroundJeans, Tees and Polos are Buy One, Get One for just $0.08 at Crazy 8 as well as Save up to 70% with an additional 20% off markdowns! Who can beat those prices? All of their inventory is NOT part of this one-of-a-kind sale but the selections available are definitely stylish and a few of my favorite pieces as well!

Crazy 8 Back to School Sale + Outfit
As I did with Gymboree, I've put together a stylish back to school outfit with selections from Crazy 8 that's sure to fit your little girl's outgoing personality plus you'll be adding some extreme color to her wardrobe as well! - I've starting with the Blossom Stripe Tee in black and white stripes, apparently I have a thing with neckline detail since I couldn't get enough of this bright neon flower that sits right at the neckline of the Blossom Stripe Tee. This tee is perfect for everyday wear and would be comfortable enough for playground fun but not too bland to be considered "not gurly enough," even for the sassiest little ladies out there.

When I ran across the neon lime skinny jeans, I fell in love! Bright colors have been a true fashion statement throughout the past couple years and 2014 is no different. Send your beauty queen back to school in bright bold colors and they'll catch some compliments on their outfit for sure! Both the Blossom Stripe Tee and Skinny Jeans (Priced at $19.98) are among the Buy One Get One for $0.08 Sale!
Shoes are not a part of Crazy 8's BOGO $0.08 sale but I couldn't leave out the finishing touch to this bold outfit - a pair of bright Buckle Strap Clogs. These ultra stylish clog sandals have a unique buckle design on the top that screams style! These cool clogs may not be BOGO for $0.08 but you can save up to 70% for a limited time only - which brings these amazing Buckle Strap Clogs down from $24.99 to just $7.19 (includes the extra 20% off). 

Mix and Match
Gymboree, Crazy 8 & Janie and Jack!!

When we buy our kids outfits, deep down we understand that the individual pieces of clothing won't always be worn together. Mix and match is what helps allow our children to develop a style of their own and feel more independent. So I decided to shake things up a bit and try out some mix and matching of my own.... I've created an outfit using items from all 3 stores - Gymboree, Crazy 8 as well as Janie and Jack! Tell me what you think! 

Back to School Outfit for Girls
If you haven't already noticed, I have a love of color and not just any color, bold and bright colors that scream "Look at me!" With this outfit I decided on a lemony yellow theme which isn't too "in your face" but isn't bland and boring either. I begin with the Eyelet Bow Knit Top from Janie and Jack. I love the sophisticated design that still allows our little girls to look classy without looking all grown-up! Once again, the bow neckline had me from the start. (I literally just now realized that all outfits have a neckline feature, it's wasn't purposely done but I like it!) I've always enjoyed the colors white and yellow being paired together because white seems to soften the boldness of the color yellow and is a sure match for this top. Adding to the already girly design is fluttered sleeves and a keyhole button closure in the back. Perfect for any girly girl who likes her colors! (Original price is $24.00 and is now on sale for just $9.49) To help mellow out the yellowness - I paired the Eyelet Bow Knit Top with some stylish Skinny Zipper Hem Jeans from Gymboree. (Regularly priced at $34.95 and can be found for just $14.99 for a limited time only) I didn't use to be a big fan of skinny jeans until my youngest started wearing them, which showed me how cute they actually are - The slim legs help the look of being taller and when paired with the right top and shoes - can be very classy and stylish all at once! The skinny zipper hem jeans have 5 pockets and are fitted through the hip and thigh area and aren't made too tight at the bottom, which means that little feet can slide in and out with ease. When it came down to choosing shoes for my mix and match Back to School outfit I went with a sandal so the skinny bottom of the jeans didn't have to be covered or bothered in any way. What I love about the Leather Ruffle Sandals from Janie & Jack is the simple but different design - instead of the regular straight straps, these have a folded fabric-look, ruffle look that gives them character. Not to mention the color matches very well with the yellow top and white jeans. The first few weeks of school is normally still warm enough for sandals so why not take advantage the freesome and let those little toes breath as much as they can before the chill rolls in?! Makes since, right? (Originally priced at $44.00 and can now be purchased for just $19.49)
And last but not least - every classy girl needs cute hair accessories!! To continue our "Modern Class" theme, I settled on a simple pair of lime colored Rosebud Barrettes from Crazy 8. (Priced at $4.88 for the pair and part of Crazy 8's BOGO $0.08 Sale which means you can snag you another pair of hair clips to spice up different outfit for just 8 cents!) 

These deals won't be around for too much longer so there's no time to lose! Swing on over to GymboreeCrazy 8 & Janie and Jack today finish up your Back to School shopping in style!
