Back To School Fashion Week Day 4 (Throwback Thursday Style!)

Well, hello there and welcome to Day 4 of Back to School Fashion Week!  If you missed out, be sure to check out Days 1, 2 and 3 here, here and here.

 In honor of Throwback Thursday (and maybe partly because I have a large pile of lamination to cut out before Open House tomorrow), I am showing off some of my favorite outfits (all featuring denim jackets) from past posts that would make great back to school ensembles.  If I haven't already convinced you to invest in your own denim jacket, hopefully you're ready to add one to your closet by the end of today's post.  Enjoy!

Cute puppy: You can't have her!  You can meet her here, though!  

Shopping Tip of the Day:

DO subscribe to your favorite store's e-mails.  I know it's a pain to sift through daily deals from every store you've ever shopped at, but many offer in-store deals that only their e-mail "insiders" know to mention.  Set up a separate e-mail account just for store e-mails, so that you can check daily for sales and don't have to worry about keeping your inbox organized.  Smart phones have made e-mail deals so much more convenient since you can open your e-mail account in the store, search for deals, and show the e-mail to the cashier to receive the promotion.
