Oh, the joy of a fresh new school year – new pens, new books, new classrooms and best of all…new clothes!

This is such an exciting time of year! It is a time to start anew and a great time to add some pre-fall pieces to your wardrobe. By now, you are probably tired of your maxi dress/sandals/shorts routine and are ready to start thinking about the perfect fall bootie/jacket/sweater. Ah, the thrill of fall merchandise!

This is a great time for a mother, daughter, even grandmother to jazz up her closet.

Plan now for those special pieces that you can wear your first day and all semester long. Now, who’s got class??!!
