Back to School Shopping and a GIVEAWAY!

    I’m so excited to be teaming up with my favorite freebie-friends for a BIG giveaway to help get you going this school year! Over at the Freebielicious blog, we’re giving away a BIG, GRAND PRIZE (scroll down to the bottom of this post to read all about it!) and right here on my little blog, I’m giving away $25.00 to my favorite store to go school clothes shopping: H&M

  One of my besties took me back to school shopping to find some cute fall outfits!  She is going to be blogging today to share with you all of the adorable outfits that we found!  Meet Kaeli...

I my name is Kaeli Reed I am one of the triplets from Triplet Living. There are two things that I love one is teaching and the other is fashion.  Today I have taken over Apples and ABC’s to show you some of the perfect pieces Michelle and I found on a recent shopping trip to H&M. We hope so see something you like and give you some inspiration to help you get "back to school" ready.

On Triplet Living we like to show you how to take one look and wear it three ways. It is not only cute, but also budget friendly. Michelle is looking adorable in this black and white striped dress we found out H&M. See how we styled it for three separate looks.

First Look

Second Look

Third Look

Styling Tip: When shopping pick out pieces that you can mix and match.  As a teachers we have so much going on in the classroom it is nice not to have to put to much thought into our wardrobe in the mornings. For example, this great striped dress can be transformed into many different looks buy switching a jacket, sweater, or jewelry.

We also found some other goodies!

How great does Michelle look in this striped blouse and black skirt! You can see here again how you can use both of these pieces to mix and match to make many more different looks. A black comfy yet stylish skirt is a Back to School Staple. You can pair it with a simple t-shirt for the warmer months and then a cute sweater when it starts to cool down. The black color also hides paint, marker, and whatever else you might track home at the end of the day pretty well.

Did you know that H&M gives teachers 15% off right now? Yeah they do, and so do a few other shopping favorites like Ann Taylor LOFTBanana RepublicThe Limited, and J. Crew to name a few. Make sure when checking out to ask, you might be surprised. When going shopping remember to bring your teacher ID. Michelle was able to show her school website with her picture on it to get the H&M discount. Every little bit helps.
Thanks for having me!
