Back to School Shopping + A $50 Kohls Giftcard Giveaway!

Disclaimer: I received a Kohl’s gift card for myself and one to give away in order to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed are my own. No other compensation was received.
 *******************
As a kid, one of my favorite parts about school starting was going Back to School shopping! 
I loved going to pick out new school supplies, especially fresh packs of pens and notebooks.
But my very favorite thing to shop for?
Back to School Clothes!
I loved picking out new clothes for school, especially my first day of school outfit. 
As a teacher, I still go back to school shopping for new clothes.
It is a way to mentally prepare myself for a new school year.
Buying new school clothes is perfect retail therapy when I am feeling bummed about going back to work after the summer break.
And, just like when I was a kid, I buy a new outfit especially for the first day of school.

I have always loved shopping at Kohls, especially since Lauren Conrad's line came out a few years ago. This summer, I have gotten a few item's from J. Lo's line (2 shorts & some necklaces that I posted about in my August Pin-spired post!)
What I love about Kohl's is that they always have sales going on!
