Back in time, Back in school, Back to Gurnee Mills $250 Giveaway!

Back to school was always an exciting time.  The biggest thing for me (and still is for any event) is adding some new stuff to my wardrobe.  Even as a kid, I loved fashion and figuring out what to wear everyday. The first day of school was a big deal and needed the best outfit.  

Looking at these photos reminded me of back to school shopping and nothings changed, I still love denim! This flare denim skirt here had crystals at the seam and was my favorite. 

My sister and I sharing a denim moment.  

Now that my oldest is going to school, we had to do some back to school shopping of our own and this weekend it was at Gurnee Mills.  We found some awesome deals AND they are running a special giveaway to one of my readers.  $250 to Gurnee Mills and $5000 to Simon Malls!
