Back-to-School Shopping at Scottsdale Fashion Square

Back-to-school shopping at Scottsdale Fashion Square is one of our favorite annual mom-daughter traditions! Christina and I make a day of it and stock up on essentials, since once school starts, time is at a premium as I know all moms can relate. 😉 From basic supplies to on-trend fashion, Scottsdale Fashion Square is a one-stop shopping destination! Plus, the restaurant scene is on point for a special lunch or dinner break. Francine is our current fav, but there are several incredible places to choose from, including Zinque, Toca Madera and Nobu.

At the new luxury wing entrance.


We kicked off our 2021 back-to-school shopping spree at the Amazon 4-Star store! They have a huge selection of school supplies, and everything has a 4-star rating, is a top seller or new & trending on Amazon.com. From Christina’s #1 highlighters and pens to notepads and pencil cases, she is all set.


Known for their trendy, street-style vibe, Steve Madden has so many cute sneaks and boots for back to school! These designer-inspired pairs are Christina’s picks. Which one is your favorite?? Share in the comments below.

This edgy, Gucci-inspired boot is perfect for year-round wear.
And, lug soles are super haute right now!
Love these Balenciaga-inspired sneaks! Available in several different colors too.
The perfect neutral sneak with a touch of flair.


Next, we stopped at Warby Parker for a new pair of blue light glasses! They have huge selection of designer frames for prescription, blue light and sunglasses. Christina chose three to try, then settled on the perfect pair for her. We also love that for every pair of glasses sold, this socially-conscious company gives a pair to someone in need.

We have a winner! She loves the subtlety of these frames.


Finally, we headed off to check out Christina’s go-to clothing stores — PacSun, Hollister, American Eagle and Urban Outfitters — followed by the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (aka NSale) for back-to-school wardrobe must-haves. I may have found a few things too. 😉 (Check out my earlier “Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Like a Pro” post for my picks and tips!)

Overall, a successful day! Thanks so much to Scottsdale Fashion Square for hosting us and the top-notch swag bags! 🥰

P.S. NEW fabulous designer store alert! The DIOR boutique recently opened in the luxury wing by Neiman Marcus, and it is gorgeous!! Moms need to shop for back to school too. A must-see the next time you’re at the mall. Plus, it’s right by Francine and Nobu.
