Mother-Daughter Back-to-School Style Scores

Summer break is almost over, which means it’s already time to shop for back-to-school outfits! But between family vacation and pre-fall repairs families can be on a tighter than usual budget, making cute, functional styles at the best price all the more essential. I scored some cute school outfits under $50 for my daughter and had money left to get myself some new clothes (hey, a mama needs to look decent too, right?)!

Three Pink Hearts Tie Front Top & Overlay Skirt Dress / Secret Life of Pets Socks = $31.99 before coupons

I wanted to get S an outfit that would not only be great for summertime, but also for when school starts in August, so I got this cute short-sleeved grey & black tie front dress for her. It’s the perfect dress to layer for winter and more than half off at KOHL’s right now when you use code FAMFRIENDS to save 20% off until July 30.

S plans on playing soccer this year so we needed to pick up some clothes that would be perfect for practices and came across a great selection of Under Armour clothes.

Carter’s Olive Tunic and Floral Leggings Set / Peppa Pig 5-Piece Backpack = $43.79 before coupons

This is one of my favorite sets because it came with leggings that can be work with other shirts already in S’ wardrobe! It’s such a great price!

Though I definitely scored some deals, I would have saved more money if I had a KOHL’S Card or YES2YOU rewards account, but I still did pretty well. I earned $10 KOHL’S Cash for every $50 I spent and used that to buy S’ a pair of Nike Kids Tanjun Sneakers to match the Nike Women’s Tanjun Sneakers I have! You can save even more than I did right now with the KOHL’S Friend & Family Sale going on. The entire site is 20% off with code FAMFRIENDS until July 30.

Mama Back-to-School Style Finds

Since KOHL’S had so many items on sale when we picked up S’ clothes, I picked up some back-to-school threads of my own. I hadn’t shopped at KOHL’S in a long time so I was really excited about all the new brands and styles. Lauren Conrad has the cutest line! Everything I picked out is breastfeeding friendly, and though more for late summer (school starts in August here), can be layered for cooler weather.
