Aventura Mall Has You Covered for Back to School by Mommy Mafia – MommyMafia.comThe family vacations were great and summer camp was amazing, but can it already be time for school? How did those summer nights fly by so fast? No need to fear about getting your little ones (and maybe not so little ones) ready to head back to the classroom in style, I’ve got you covered!
I recently visited Aventura Mall where you'll find all the latest and greatest trends under one roof!
Are your older kids "tech"-nically ready? The Microsoft Store has some great options, including the latest Surface Pro 4. With a starting price of only $899, it’s one of Microsoft’s hottest back-to-school sellers, especially among high schoolers and the college set. Microsoft wireless phone chargers are also super-hot right now for those decorating dorm-rooms, specifically for those with a Windows or a Samsung Galaxy phone.
Are you looking for a first computer for your grade-school student? The Microsoft Store has great options for starter laptops, like the Asus T100 CHI starting at $349.
Lifestyle brand Kipling has managed to steal the "must have backpack" category among the ever-demanding tween set. The brand’s "Washington" backpack is so popular they have trouble keeping up with demand. The rainbow-threaded backpack is also such a hit that the store manager hinted to me that the best chance to pick one up is early in the morning hours once the store has replenished its evening shipments. You're going to want to stop by soon because Kipling has some amazing Back-to-School sales going on throughout the store.
Of course, Adidas will take care of your little sports stars like the ballers they are. Blooming with fresh style is the S Rose Collection, a bright floral pattern with the brand’s signature three stripes down the sides of the pants. Love this look!
Some classics never go out of style. Adidas Store Manager Kevin holds both top-selling shoe styles – the iconic Superstar and Stan Smith. They are available in all sizes at Aventura Mall Adidas store, from infant to adult.
How could I not mention the Disney Store? Its Back to School offerings comprise the entire front half of the store. From backpacks to lunch boxes, and pencil cases to water bottles, Disney has everything with your kids’ favorite characters. Check out that adorable Minnie Mouse backpack with a surprise attached hood. So cute! She will love it! Sheez, I love it!
Star Wars, Captain America, Spiderman, and Lightning McQueen are all here! Did you see that BB8 lunch box? Isn't it just galactic?
The Back to School sales continue in full force throughout Aventura Mall. Quicksilver has a "Rise and Grind" special going on for guys and girls that includes 1 Tee, 1 Bottom, 1 Hoodie plus a backpack for only $125!
As South Floridians, our kids spend most of their days in shorts. These Quicksilver Amphibian Board Shorts go from land to water and back again. They look like typical casual shorts but are made of special fabric perfect for water.
J Crew's “crewcuts” Back to School collection is fun and kitschy, featuring monster eyeballs, kitty whiskers and fun iron-on patches.
Kids’ Max the Monster Furry Backpack $59.50; Kids’ Iridescent Backpack $68; Kids’ Kitty Backpack $59.50; Kids’ Max the Monster Backpack $59.50
If your fashionista wants to show off her #deskie Instagram shots, take her to The Scarlett Letter, for the finest luxury stationary items. Swell water bottles, Kate Spade notepads, and journals are just a few of the treasures she'll love.
The store also has fun, colorful erasers and Hello Kitty pens and notebooks.
Inspired? There's so much going on at Aventura Mall and Back to School excitement is in the air. Go have fun and get your kids some goodies, actually, you might need to pick up one of those Swell water bottles for yourself!
