Back To School Clothes Shopping At Target – PLUS Enter To Win A $300 Gift Card WOW!!!

Back To School Shopping TargetThe Sweeney clan headed to Target and went Back to School shopping! We already scored all our school supplies(and gave away a $300 gift card) but now it was time to stock up on some clothes for both Natalie and Liam. We found great options on the floor!! For Natalie, we picked pieces that were both traditional and based off of some of her favorite cartoons – like Monster High and Ever After High.

Then my daughter grabbed this faux motorcycle jacket and my husband started calling her The Fonz. She didn’t get the reference but we were cracking up for the rest of the trip. Literally made my day.

Back To School Shopping Target

Jean jackets, patterned stretch pants, fun t-shirts, quilted zipper ups, super fab accessories and more! The girl’s department is packed with everything your daughter needs to gear up for Back to School. Like I said, Target has thought of every kind of girl. If your child loves to wear heavily themed attire, she will find what she is looking for in these aisles. If your daughter likes to dress a bit more muted, there are dozens and dozens of outfits just waiting for her to fall in love with as well.

Oh and PS – leopard lovers… this season is for YOU.

Back To School Shopping TargetFor boys, it’s just as easy. I grabbed a few collared yet casual shirts for Liam because I always need a dressed up shirt for school concerts and parent gatherings. The prices were so right! I was beyond thrilled.

Back To School Shopping TargetOf course we also opted for some fun t shirts including ones with Plants Vs. Zombies and Minecraft (see below). A few more pants and a zipper fleece and we are good to GO! Liam honestly needed less than Natalie did. He must own 6,000 t shirts. I don’t know how it happened but it did. I know it’s my fault but that kid wants for nothing when it comes to the clothing department.
