Marketstreet Lynnfield Back to School Extravaganza

This post was written in partnership with Marketstreet Lynnfield. As always, thank you for supporting Prim and Propah and the folks who keep it rockin'

Last week I had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite local shopping centers, Marketstreet Lynnfield. It's one of those places where you can literally spend from breakfast through dinner and beyond shopping, eating, sipping and being entertained... this time of year though, parents have one glorious thing on their minds and that's "Back to School". I stopped in to a few of Marketstreet's stores to grab some things for the Propah Preschoolah as well as snap some shots of things that I thought my community would be interested in seeing for their kids. There is truly something for everyone whether your kids like bright colors, fun prints, preppy classics and so much more. Each kid, not matter their personality and sense of style, will find something quality and fun for their back to school wardrobe.

Fatface is one of my new favorites and you know this. Pleased as punch I am that my little guy is just big enough to fit into their kids clothes, though it's a bit bittersweet that he's growing so fast. But alas, he is off to preschool this year. I love stopping in to the Lynnfield location, saying Hi to my new pals and grabbing some cool new duds for my little guy to wear as the weather gets cooler. It doesn't hurt that I can find great stuff for me and my husband as well. What you'll find: khakis, hooded sweatshirts, jeans, great patterns, ethical fashion.

Athleta Girl inside Athleta... boy am I jealous of the ladies who can buy matching active wear with their daughters. If you've got a tween that loves to stay fit with you, be sure to stop at the Athleta location and check out their Athleta Girl duds. Also, if you're interested in events surrounding health and wellness, keep an eye on the Lynnfield calendar for great yoga, meditation and fitness classes with local professionals. What you'll find: great sports bras, yoga pants, running shorts + more.

Vineyard Vines is the best place to hit if you and your family love the preppy, nautical vibe with classic versatile pieces. They've got some great backbacks, lunch bags and planners for your stylish little human who loves Vineyard Vines. Shop the back to school event August 26th and 27th for free gift with purchase as well as the opportunity to have your goods monogrammed. What you'll find: ocean vibes that see your Summer into the school year.

Justice is the place that I wish was around when I was a tween. Colors and glitter and jewelry oh my! Wes and I took the opportunity to pick some things out for his bow loving cousin as well as a pair of kitty headphones that he just had to have. The girls in store told me that they've got some great denim deals coming in the next few weeks as well as great sales on tees and leggings. Picking up basics for your little ladies has never been easier. What you'll find: all the versatile basics plus sassy things to help your girl be an individual.

Hanna Andersson is one of our favorites because not only can I pick up things like tees, pants, underwear and socks that will last the whole school year, the little guy can have his fill of Star Wars. As a mother who knows far too much about Star Wars, it's refreshing to see new prints and items that we don't already own- something new to throw into the rotation! They're currently stocking all the basics, lunch bags, backpacks and even some great dress up clothes for the evening and weekend fun! What you'll find: Colors and quality and oh so cute clothes for your little ones.

Amazon Books is a great place to stop whether you're just looking for your next read or books for the kids school reading lists. They're finishing up their Summer reading program now but are gearing up the school year with a lot of great school supplies, alarm clocks and all the Amazon tech you need. What you'll find: Books for all age levels, bathrooms with changing tables and the ability to use your Amazon Prime account in store.

Whole Foods for all of your lunch needs, because we want to send those kids to school with thoroughly thoughtful foods in their lunch boxes. Check out Whole Foods' tips, tricks, recipes and everything you need for back to school healthy eating for the whole family, on their site. What you'll find: heatlhy and wholesome snacks and meals for the entire family.

Other places to try while you're there? Gap Kids, Claire's, American Rhino and The Paper Store. You're going to find what you need and you're kids are going to look smashing, I promise.
