The hustle and bustle of back to school shopping has finally dwindled with school starting this past Monday. The thought of driving from place to place to find everything I needed was exhausting to think about. Luckily, I have The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale mall not too far from my house which has everything I need to get my kids ready for the new school year. From major department stores to popular stores like Gymboree, American Eagle Outfitters, and so much more.
My son accompanied me on our little shopping adventure. He is 8 years old and has an opinion about everything. He knows what he likes and there isn’t anyone to convince him otherwise. I’m sure I’m not alone there! We walked the entire mall and ended up finding the majority of our clothing items in H&M. H&M recently opened at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale which had me very, very excited. It is one of my favorite stores – I lived in New York and shopped there all the time when I headed to the city. I was ecstatic to see one close to home. The affordable prices make it ideal for back to school shopping – more bang for you buck!
Gymboree was our next stop – I love, love the quality of Gymboree clothing. The adorable and trendy clothes for kids makes it my go-to stop when shopping for back to school clothing. I found a cute little dress with a matching bow for my daughters first day of school. I also got her some sequined leggings and a colorful floral tunic. I love the matching pieces they have – makes it so easy to get a complete outfit. Every time I go into Gymboree I know I’m going to find an outfit from head to toe.
