I Feel Pretty | Playing Favorites

Even though it’s been a lot of fun looking forward to fall fashion, I’m just not quite ready to let go of my favorite summer outfits yet.  This chambray/maxi dress combo is one of them.  I’ve worn it to church, sightseeing in New Orleans, to doctor’s appointments, even to run errands.  It’s been my all-purpose summer look.  I’ll be retiring it soon but here’s one last tribute to one of my summer favorites.

Mom & Me Summer Style | The Children’s Place

Recently Coupons.com gave me the opportunity to shop with $50 at The Children’s Place for my 8 year-old daughter Ava. With our gift card, we were able to buy three complete looks, including a fun accessory and a new bathing suit!

I’ve been shopping at The Children’s Place for our kids’ clothing ever since our two teenagers were babies. Their clothes are affordable, on trend and always hold up well wash after wash.  It’s also one of the few places where clothes are so true to fit that I can order online with complete confidence and know that everything will work.

All three of Ava’s looks are a perfect fit.Mom and Me Coral Maxi Dress
