There are lots of bright, fun styles for tween girls for back-to-school and so your tween’s wardrobe doesn’t have to consist of only jeans and graphic tees this year. There are so many fun trends that your tween will love like bright colors, printed jeans and fun accessories. The key to saving money with tween is to show them styles you will both love so clothes don’t go unworn. To save money, I try and grab a few trendy outfits for my tween daughter and then let her pick out a few jeans and tees to mix and match. There are so many stores that have styles your tweens will love like Crazy 8, Gap, Justice, The Children’s Place and P.S. Aeropostale and they are all offering great deals for back-to-school.
P.S. Aeropostale is one of my daughter’s favorite brands. This season, they have more fashion pieces and less of their logo pieces. They have a new London rock-inspired line that your girls will love. I have seen so many peplum tops this season and this one is my favorite. I adore the scottie print paired with these colored jeans. My daughter fell in love with this London graphic tee and it pairs great with these fun plaid pants and the black jacket. I love that P.S. Aero has affordable prices and reasonable shipping.
There are so many mix and match pieces from The Children’s Place for tween girls. This feather printed chiffon skirt has stylish ruffles and and you can pair it with this cute, blue love shirt and sparkly tennis shoes. I see many tweens still wearing playful skirts to school and the sparkly high tops make it comfortable for play. Top it off with matching headband. I love the prices at The Children’s Place as they always have nice coupons and shipping deals.
Do you you have a sporty tween, but still want her to have some style? Gap has these great knits and my favorite is this purple striped knit dress. The bright green scarf makes this outfit really fun and your tween will love the comfort of this dress. Finish this outfit with a versatile jean jacket. I love that Gap always has free shipping for orders of $50 or more, along with their great coupons.

If it is still really warm in your region, you might consider this colorful outfit from Crazy 8 for back-to-school. It’s from their Art Class Rocks collection, which is bright and fun. I love the cute short-sleeve heart sweater paired with the shorts and colorful belt. Top it off with a headband and blue sparkly flats. Crazy 8 is known for their affordable clothing and great sales.
Let’s face it, tweens love their graphic tees and jeans. This season, you can mix your graphic tees with really cool printed jeans. I love that Justice has printed jeans that perfectly coordinate with tees for that mix and match look. Finish this fun look off with some cool boots. Justice has so many new styles this season that you will find something fun that your girls will love.

Is it that time again to start looking at my favorite little girls Easter dresses this season. Who can resist adorable Easter dresses for little girls? Here are my top picks. These vary in price from almost $100 to just a little over $20. The quality and details will be better in the more expensive little girls Easter dresses. However, the styling in them all is super cute!
Classic Bishop Dress from Kelly’s Kids - How sweet will you little girl be on Easter in this classic dress? I love the purple, the polka dots and the ric rac sleeve detail. There is an adorable flower hair accessory that matches too! Plus if you have more children, Kelly’s Kids has coordinating sibling outfits for both boys and girls. I always love Easter pictures when the whole family coordinates. This classic little girls Easter dress is perfect for Easter and all spring and summer. This dress comes in sizes 6 months to size 10-12.
I wrote a post last week about these adorable ruffled knit tier dresses from Garnet Hill. I had a bunch of questions from you all about sizing since these only come in full sizes. Unfortunately, I couldn’t help you all much because we have never owned this dress either.
I ordered the dresses last week for my girls and they came super quick. I ordered M (my oldest) a size 8. She is abut 51 inches tall and 54 pounds. I ordered I (my youngest) a size 6 and she is about 46 inches and 45 pounds. As you can see from the picture above, they fit perfectly and are super super cute!
I consider these to be the perfect super dress because it can be dressed up or is casual enough to throw on over a swimsuit. It is knit so easy to care for which I love. Plus it costs just $28.
Please excuse the wrinkles in the dress in the picture. My girls tried these on right after we pulled them out of the box. I think they look super cute but I do know that I am biased.

I LOVE the polka dot play dresses. So so cute and on sale for just $30! These dresses are so comfy and wash up great. These were my absolute favorite dresses when my girls were little. These look great on babies and older girls.
There are tons of great choices in the swimwear section for boys and girls too!
So I am in LOVE with the Ruffled Knit Tank Dress from Garnet Hill. I adore the different colored layers. It looks comfy , twirly and cute. I also love that to comes in 3 different color ways so I can buy one for each daughter and have them coordinate but not be dressed exactly the same. Now the hard part deciding which to buy.
These are also bargain priced through February 14, 2012 or while supplies last for just $28. The only thing that would make this offer better is if they had a free shipping promo going on.
So which color is your favorite?
So I am a huge fan of Matilda Jane Clothing for me and my girls. I have been buying it for quite a few years and always have a show when a new line comes out. People often ask me how you buy Matilda Jane clothes and I say it is sort of like a Tupperware party for clothing. A fabulous trunk keeper comes to my home with the clothes and and then you can come over and try on samples and buy what you like.
The clothes are not inexpensive but they have so so many special details that you don’t see on children’s clothing often. My girls always get compliments whenever they are wearing Matilda Jane Clothing,
There have already been two releases of the You and Me line and the next release comes out tomorrow. The new clothes should be online then at Matilda Jane Clothing. I thought though to get you in the mood. I would post a few pictures of my youngest daughter in some of the outfits.
Many of these outfits are still available to order. If you you are in the Detroit area and want to come see the clothes in person, just email me at bargainshoppermom at gmail dot com. If you are not in the area, you can still add on to my show and just pay for direct shipping to you. Again, you would need to email me and I can put you in touch with my trunk keeper.
Disclosure: I have no affiliation with Matilda Jane other than I am a huge fan of the clothing. All thoughts and opinions are my own. If you do decide to order through my Matilda Jane show I do get some hostess perks.
