And that's okay, because it really IS kind of a big deal. Luckily I'm not so old that I don't remember what those first days of school were like every year... scary and exciting all wrapped into one. I won't even go into what I'm feeling as my own child -- MY BABY! -- enters school for the first time (that's at least half a dozen posts right there) but I can talk to you about back to school in terms of clothes and contests.
A few weeks ago, I headed to RUUM on a back to school shopping spree courtesy of the brand and the video review site for kids, KidzVuz (which is totally awesome, by the way). My fellow bloggers and I had such a fun time chatting and shopping for our kids, and by the time I made it to the checkout counter, my arms were full. SO many cute outfits, shoes and accessories that are on trend yet affordable.
Here are a few of my favorites that I selected for my back to school babe:
So here's the exciting part. RUUM and KidzVuz have partnered together to host a $250 RUUM gift card giveaway for all your back to school shopping needs! All you have to do is register at KidzVuz. Once you've gotten that out of the way, make a short video about the cool things you've bought at RUUM in the past OR your favorite items on RUUM.com OR your pick for the best back to school fashion trend. Click here for additional contest rules and to submit your video. Contest ends on September 16th.
Good luck, and happy "back to school!"
