Fall Favorites 2014: The Denim Shirt

We love fall here at Shopping Blitz. Sure we love the cool weather hikes, warm drinks and playing in fallen leaves, but what we really live for is replenishing our fall wardrobe! Blame it on years of back-to-school shopping, but once September / October hits we are pulling out our wallets and drooling over the season’s latest offerings. This year we are especially into simple, neutral pieces that can be reused for fall and winter. Remember simple does not have mean to boring. To us a classic piece is worth its weight in gold.

Case in point: the versatility of a good denim shirt is almost immeasurable. You can wear it with it your colored skinny pants and an awesome pair of booties for a drool-worthy casual look. Tuck them into a pair of dress trousers and add some knock-em-dead heels for a classy look all your own. The options are endless! Tell us your favorite look. We love learning new style tricks!

Saved By The Bell: Back 2 School Essentials

It’s that time again, the season dreaded by children and teachers around the globe. Back to school! Those frenzied days when flip-flops and swimsuits are traded in for backpacks, loafers and binders. We feel your pain and while we’d love to hold onto summer as long as we can it’s time to plan for fall.

You Are Never To Old To Rock A Cool Backpack

My favorite consolation as a kid when school shopping was the chance to pick out a brand backpack. Each year I’d choose a different style to match my new persona. Which of course had changed drastically during the summer months. The only thing that never changed was that it had to be a JanSportThat being said I got a huge kick when I realized that JanSport was still rocking the backpack world and creating cooler and funkier designs than ever before. Because let’s face having the right backpack really can make the difference between social escalation and isolation, in other words sitting at the cool kid’s table or being regulated to no man’s land next to the bathroom.

The Right Footwear Can Make The Difference

So many kids and parents focus more on clothing and forget the importance of footwear. The right shoes can help a kid make the soccer team, strut their stuff in the hallways and often garner the confidence to create lasting friendships. My go-to choice for versatile footwear are styles that can be dressy, sporty and casual. New trends this year include hi-top sneakers and tall lace-up boots. And don’t forget to include feel-good accessories like funky socks and killer headphones for listening to your ready-made back to school playlists.
