Back to School for the Homeschooling Mom at Northwest Arkansas Mall #NWARK #ad

This post was compensated by Northwest Arkansas Mall. All opinions are honest and are my own. #NWARK

I'm so excited to be offering an awesome giveaway to my Northwest Arkansas readers! Someone is going to win a $200 shopping spree---and I hope it's YOU!

Last weekend, Lynzie, Selah, and I headed to the mall for some mom shopping. I love taking my girls along because they're so sweet about making sure we all have a fun day. This day was about blessing mom and they were 100% ready to serve.

I've always joked that one of the biggest advantages of being a homeschooling mom is that I get to spend all day in my sweats---or even pajamas---if I want to. However, the downside is that it often makes me lazy and unmotivated. This year, I'm committing to dressing for success, and Northwest Arkansas Mall in Fayetteville has everything I need to make that happen. Check out this adorable lace-trimmed sweatshirt from JC Penney and these super cute and comfy pants from Earthbound Trading Company. Why should I wear sweats and jammies when I can wear these?

JC Penney is one of my favorite places to find simple styles that I can mix and match with things that are already in my closet. I love shopping the sales and then getting surprised at checkout with an even bigger savings. That's what happened with this red and blue printed dress. It was originally $50, marked down to $20, but rang up for a little over $12! 

I was also excited to find a good selection of long skirts at JC Penney. Just the other day, a friend was struggling to find long skirts. Now I can tell her where to shop for them!

Once I finished picking out my outfits, I headed to another favorite stop. Whether you're going classy or comfy, Payless Shoe Source has a style for almost any outfit.

Now that the clothes shopping was done, it was time to look for some accessories. I love Claire's for cute jewelry and hair accessories. They've even got some cute school supplies. If you can wrestle them away from your daughters, you can fill up your own mom notebook with adorable things to make grading papers and making notes more fun. 

As a homeschooling mom to many, my days really are filled up with meeting the needs (and lots of the wants) of these nine kids. Usually our trips to the mall are for taking care of their shopping lists so it was fun to shop for myself this time around. (That's totally ok to do, you know!) I think the girls had fun, too, swapping places with mom and being the ones dreaming about the things they saw, rather than being the ones getting all the goods!
