Most teenage girls these days would post haul videos on YouTube, but– as I mentioned in my first blog– I’m not really much of a YouTuber. I tried it, but posting such videos on YouTube isn’t really my style. So I’m just going to share my “back-to-school haul” in a blog post, because that’s how I roll 🙂
I went to four different clothing stores to buy my BTS clothes: Stitches, Ardene, Mark’s, and Aeropostale.
At Stitches, I bought three shirts. The first one is red and white, has 3/4 length sleeves, and is probably my favorite. It says “What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger… except cowgirls. Cowgirls will kill you.” I bought it because I absolutely love the “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” quote… and then I read the last part.
I also bought 2 short-sleeved t-shirts; the first one is grey and says “Today’s good mood is brought to you by COFFEE,” which is kinda true! LOL! 🙂 The other one is black-and-white striped and says “Embrace messy hair” in a fancy script font.
About 2 weeks ago, I went to Ardene… and surprisingly, I only bought one thing. A white, short-sleeved t-shirt that says “HUG ME“. Also, it has 4-leaf-clovers… and Olaf. 🙂 It’s more of a St. Patrick’s Day shirt, so I probably won’t wear it often. But it’s really comfortable, so it will work for a pajama top.
Some of my favorite fall clothing pieces were found at Mark’s. For a while, I’ve had my eye on this really cute purple fall jacket. It’s big enough that I can wear lots of layers underneath, and, oh my goodness, it’s so soft inside. I love it!
I also bought these really cute, black, high-heeled booties. I wore them for the first time on Wednesday (when I went to the city to finish my back-to-school shopping), and I must admit, walking in them was a challenge, haha! But I got used to walking in high heels after a while. 🙂
To finish my back-to-school shopping, I went to one of my favorite clothing stores, Aeropostale. Oh my goodness, I found some of the cutest clothes and accessories there!
Aero has these cool new jeggings; they’re called “Seriously Stretchy Jeans.” I think these jeans are my new favorite clothing pieces. Oh my gosh, they’re so comfortable! I bought 3 different pairs: teal (yes, teal-colored jeggings are a thing 🙂 ), grey, and dark blue distressed.
I also bought three camis, with 3 different patterns on them. One is grey, with lace on the front. Then there’s a bright pink one which has the same pattern– it will be nice to add a pop of color to my fall outfits this year. And finally, I bought an off-white cami with a black/grey (I’m not sure exactly which color) star pattern throughout.
I bought a pink hoodie with lace on the sleeves. The material is very light, so it will be perfect for the autumn days that aren’t too cold (Then again, I could always wear my fall jacket from Mark’s over-top of my outfit if it’s fairly cold or raining 🙂 ). Looking ahead to the fall and winter months, I bought a red waffle-henley shirt. It’s hard to describe, so I’m including the link to the product on Aero’s website.
Even though I had been eyeing the Aeropostale backpacks for the longest time, I had already decided on a backpack for school before going to the city. The Aero backpacks were cute, but most of them were too small. However, when I got to the store and was looking at the new Bethany Mota collection, my mom surprised me with a new backpack. I was so happy… but then I started to think, It won’t be the right size for all my school books. I ended up being totally wrong about that– the bag is huge; just the right size for all my books. (My mom talked to one of the employees at Aero, who said that Grade 11 has the lightest work-load out of all the grades. So maybe I won’t get too much homework after all! 🙂 )
Oh my gosh, I think I found my new favorite backpack! It’s quilted faux-leather, has two extra side-pockets and a front pocket– AND has magnetic closure! Plus, it matches my black leather jacket that I bought from Aero last year!
Those are all the clothes and accessories I bought for back-to-school this year. I have a feeling this school year is going to be so awesome!
