It's the most wonderful time of the year

To be honest with you all, I'm a little sad that I'm not going back to school this coming September. Having just graduated, I can't excuse any excessive August spending as back-to-school shopping! But I know a lot of you still can, so in honor of my lucky readers who are still in school, I wanted to point you in the right direction for some cute and affordable back-to-school styles... at Marshalls!

I know Marshalls may not be the first place you'd think of when looking for stylish, current fashions, but they have really been stepping their game up lately! I reviewed the new CUBE boutiques that are popping up in Marshalls stores everywhere back in May, but Marshalls didn't stop their revamping at that! In fact, they went a step further and hired the great Art Conn, stylist on American Idol, to re-create popular styles using fall fashions found at Marshalls, inspired by American Idol, Twilight, and (my favorite) Gossip Girl! The American Idol look is rocker-chic, the Twilight look is grungy (think flannel, torn up jeans, all those 90's trends that are back), and the Gossip Girl look is, of course, preppy. So no matter how you want to look on that first day back to school, Marshalls will have something for you! And at ridiculously good prices too! These looks are filtering in to Marshalls stores every day, so be sure to stop by your local store (check here for locations) to scoop up that hot leather jacket above and the adorable Gossip Girl-inspired blazer below!

I hear ya....3 years later (omg can't believe it) I still miss the back to school feeling and shopping! Actually just last week I asked my mom to take me "fall school shopping" for old times sake :) She laughed at me, haha.
