#Sponsored #NordstromRack #AD Affordable & Stylish Shopping ($250 GC giveaway)

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Nordstrom Rack. That means I was paid to post it. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Nordstrom Rack has the right idea, they're promoting back-to-school for moms and for kids. That means shopping not only for the perfect back-to-school outfit for the kiddos, but also shopping for that perfect back to school night (Open House) outfit for mom too. I like it!!

What's a mom to do when presented with such a challenge? Why...go shopping, of course! :)

In looking through the site, I started by browsing the boy's selections for my 6-year-old son.  1st Grade is a big deal, and having a cool new outfit to start the big day with makes him feel proud. There were many selections to choose from, and so many that I really, really liked, but in narrowing it down to the one outfit I would choose for him, head to toe, I selected the following, and it was all less than $60 (shoes included!).





















The Peek...Aren't You Curious long sleeve denim shirt normally sells retail for $39.50. At Nordstrom Rack, it's selling for $12.97 (67% off retail price).  That's a beyond reasonable price, and we love the shirt!

Everyone with little boys knows that the price of brand name jeans (usually purchased for quality!!) can generally be placed in the 'are you kidding me?' category. At Nordstrom Rack we found a great pair of Volcom Jeans for $23.97 (56% off retail price). I like the color of these pants, and my son is on the slim side, so the modern thin fit of this cut is perfect for him.

The bright pop of the Fiery Coral color with the Converse Chuck Taylor Oxford Sneaker adds a fun touch. And while school is a big deal, it should also be fun too. These shoes are $19.97 (38% off the price you would pay retail).

That's a whole outfit, that we love, for less than $60.00!

Then it was my turn to pick out an outfit to wear for back to school night, or as we call it here Meet the Teachers: Open House.  I could shop all day at Nordstrom Rack. The prices are great, and the selections are oh, so stylish.  In the end, I opted for the following:
























I thought the Max Studio Dress would be fun because it's a close match to the color of my son's shoes. The fact that it was ringing in at $39.97 (69% off the retail price of $128) did not hurt a bit either.

The (70% off retail price) Carrini Embellished T-Strap Sandal I selected goes well with the dress, and it matches a ton of other things in my wardrobe too. At $12.00 (shoes...for $12!!!), they're the perfect way to finish off the warm weather season in style.

Because the cost of my entire outfit was only a little over $50.00, I added the Steven by Steve Madden, fringed suede backpack. At $39.97 (59% off the $98 retail cost), how could I not? :) 

The entire outfit still rang in at less than $100, purse included.


Nordstrom Rack lets you dress to impress at far less than the prices you would expect to pay. With favorite brands, new arrivals weekly, prices up to 70% off, and all shipping going out within 1-2 days of your order, it is a most excellent place to shop. Throw in the free shipping for all orders placed over $100 (which they have done), and it's easy to see why the all new nordstromrack.com site is going to become a favorite of many.

US Entrants only.

One lucky winner is going to get a $250 gift card to Nordstrom Rack.

They certainly have stylish things for everyone.

I love those orange shoes. I get envious over sneakers. I just can't wear them with my flat feet, and turned in ankle.
