Back to School in Style! Plus: HUGE $1,000 in Gift Cards Giveaway!!

Some of us are more than ready for the summer to end and school to begin, while others just aren't quite there yet.

I always found that kids will get into the back-to-school excitement faster after a shopping trip. I know when I was younger I could hardly wait to show off my new clothes and gadgets to my friends!

Check out some of the cool back-to-school items I found on the Target website, then make sure to scroll to the bottom of this post so that you can enter an awesome giveaway for your chance to win 1 of 10 great prizes in this huge Back-to-School Giveaway Event!

If you like what you see, please consider making a purchase through a link on my site. I use affiliate links, so when you buy something through me, you're helping me to keep my blog running!

Let Your Boys Run With the Big Dogs!

I absolutely love this little letterman's jacket. It comes in sizes 4-16 and is perfect for letting your younger boys feel just as grown-up as older brothers. Plus, it's a steal at just under $20 - it doesn't get much better than that!

All Dressed Up!

For girls, I like this dress from Xhilaration. It's a brand I remember wearing even when I was a girl, so I trust it a lot. This cute little lace number comes in four different colors and has a delicate flower design on it that looks more expensive than it really is! Comes in sizes 4-16.

A Really Cool Backpack

Okay so, this is quite possibly the most awesome backpack I have ever seen! Although it says it is a Men's backpack, if you read some of the reviews on Target's website you will see that the item is actually smaller and best suited for younger children. If you have a little guy (or gal) at home that is TMNT-crazy (like my little guy is!) this would be a perfect going-back-to-school surprise.

Go For The Classics

And of course, the school year wouldn't be complete without a nod to those most-timeless of all school shoes: Mary Janes. You can get these ones from Cherokee in girl's sizes 13-5 for less than $15!
