Back to School Shopping at Beachwood Place

This summer is flying by and school starts in one week from today!  I can't believe how different our energy and attitude towards school has been this summer compared to last summer.  Around this time last year Charlie was so nervous and didn't want to go which, in turn gave me MAJOR anxiety.  Now, Charlie is so excited!   We're counting down the days, have all our school supplies ready to go and (the most fun part) we started back to school shopping!
I'm so excited to be partnering with Beachwood Place to do all our Back-2-School shopping this year! If you saw my Insta story, I promised I'd share my haul with you but before I do I want to talk about the awesomeness of this mall.  Beachwood Place has over 140 stores to shop so it makes shopping your favorite back to school stores super easy with them all in one place.  Not only is it a beautiful campus, it's safe, clean and loaded with friendly, helpful staff.  I enjoy my time here every time I visit!

You guys know me, when it comes to clothes for Charlie I don't mind paying a little more for a better quality since they will be passed down not once but twice!  I'm really looking for durability!  For this first round of school shopping I knew I wanted to focus on pants because homeboy is growing like a weed and all his pants are starting to flood.  He really likes jogger style pants so I started at H&M and Children's Place.  Both of these stores always have great low prices and their clothes always fit him the best.  Not only did I find some awesome joggers but I snatched up the cutest striped lightweight sweater paired with some navy pants from H&M and some great long sleeve striped and baseball tees from Children's Place. 

I headed to Zara and Nordstrom next.  They always have fun finds that are super cute and unique.  I got another cute fall outfit at Zara, a lightening bolt cardigan and dark grey joggers with the cutest camo detail around the ankles and waist.  Nordstrom at Beachwood place had their Anniversary sale going on while I was there so I got some knock out prices on some tee shirts too!

We finished our shopping at Gap kids my all time favorite store.  I also love the staff here. I tend to go overboard when I'm in here because I just love everything so much, so having a sales rep there to help make sure I find everything I need is always a must!  Another reason why in-store shopping at Beachwood Place is way better than online in my opinion. I wanted to find some warmer clothes for when the weather gets a bit chillier and fell in love with this grey logo crew neck sweatshirt!  It's simple but adorable! I also found the cutest graphic tees and a pair of bright orange board shorts!

I can't wait to head back to Beachwood Place this weekend for their big All Good Vibes Back to School event!  I still need to grab some basics like underwear, shoes and outerwear and I know I'll be able to find everything I need and more there!  If you're in the Cleveland area come shop with with me.  You can reply to the event on Facebook, here.  
All in all this first haul was a huge success and this is exactly how we feel about it!
