Made for Back to School with American Living (JCPenny GC Giveaway)

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #120: Lori A!

One of the challenges that our family faces every year is shopping for back to school clothes. Kacie and I do not always agree on what is appropriate school attire and now that Kiana is 5 years old she’s also starting to develop a fashion style of her own. Back in the day, JCPenny was always our go-to place to shop for stylish yet affordable clothing. However, since they no longer have a store in Hawaii we’re grateful for their online shopping option.

JCPenny is currently introducing their new Fall line of American Living clothing for kids that’s sure to please even the pickiest child not to mention save you few bucks as well. With these conservative yet fashionable pieces you’re able to mix-and-match to form endless combinations of outfits in turn saving you lots of money. Plus they’re made with an exceptional quality so you know they’ll last a very long time. And since I have 3 girls, well-made hand-me-downs are very important to us.

We recently had the opportunity to select some of our favorite pieces to showcase and this time I let the kids make their own choices.

Kacie (9):
