Back to School Shopping (And No, I Don't Mean Glue Sticks and Notebooks)
So summer is beginning to wind down, and what better time to think about school? Actually, most of us would rather not think about school, but what about back-to-school clothes shopping? Now that's a subject I'll talk about any day! Many retailers, such as Hollister, are starting their summer clearance sales, which can be a great place to get started. Begin with a basic lacy tank (Marina Park, $14.90) and pair with a newly-arrived plaid button down (Northside, $39.50) and chic crops (Swami's Beach, $49.50). Or, to save more money, make a complete outfit from clearanced items. Combine a super-cute skirt (Boneyard Beach, $19.90) with a laid-back tee (Picnic Beach, $16.90). With all these adorable and affordable clothes for sale at a store near you, you'll be wishing for days filled with algebra problems and gym uniforms.
