It's back to school time and a perfect excuse to go shopping at Penn Square Mall in Oklahoma City! 

Every year we all try to find that perfect pair of denim for the new school year or college semester. The trend right now is skinny leg denim, which is carried by most retailers at Penn Square. There are a few keys points to keep in mind when you shop for a pair of new jeans; fit, wash and price! Keeping these three things in mind, I think I found my favorite denim for the school year at Forever 21....and for only $7.80!! Yes, you read that right, - $7.80. That's almost free! 

 

These $7.80 denim jeans from Forever 21 come in five different washes (black, indigo with stitching, indigo without stitching, medium blue and grey) and two different inseams (29' and 32' inch). I am wearing the indigo wash with stitching in the 32' inch inseam. I usually prefer the longer length in denim, so I have the option to cuff or roll my jeans without them becoming too short.

 

One of my favorite back to school outfit combinations is denim-on-denim. This look works best when you wear two different shades of denim, rather than wearing the same color.

Denim shirts can be worn as a top or a layering piece. In this look, I decided to use it as a layering piece to bring more attention to my varsity graphic tee, which is also available at Forever 21 for the awesome price of  $9.80! This top comes in multiple colors, but I thought the black and white style worked best with this outfit.

 

No matter what anyone says, shoes are important to make the perfect outfit! So when shopping for shoes, choose wisely.
