We are giving away a $50 TARGET giftcard to help YOU show Target that YOUR #kidsgotstyle


Congrats to our winner Nicole!

Honestly, I am kind of depressed that school is starting up again. I’ve always been like this–as a kid and now I still get that queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach as a mom to two young kids. I don’t think I’m necessarily alone in feeling a tad uneasy about beginning anew with anything. I’ve always been a creature of habit and starting a new school, job and even the prospect of getting married- made me VERY nervous!

Win a $50 Target giftcard from www.thestatenislandfamily.com
Thank goodness- at least as of today- both of my kids still seem pretty excited about the prospect of beginning a brand new school year–but I think it has a lot to do with being swept up in the whirlwind of shopping for new school gear. I mean are there any kids that don’t like to shop and acquire new things (if you’re the parent of one, I’d love to hear your secret!)

And of course they both LOVE THE CLOTHES- and TARGET and while  Cute kids with stylish clothes are everywhere, Target believes the best kids’ style comes from real kids. And to reflect that sentiment their back-to-school campaign this year celebrates kids’ style, from including real kids in the adsto encouraging parents to share how their kids are rocking their own unique style.

From August 7 to 12, parents can Instagram @Target #KidsGotStyle a picture of how their kid expresses their style. A Target stylist will use select photos as inspiration to create a custom Stylagram mood board of colors, fashion items and supplies inspired by kids’ unique style, perfect for back-to-school!

Target’s blog, A Bullseye View, posted a piece on how #KidsGotStyle works, featuring a behind-the-scenes video of cute kids talking about their style, a preview of Stylagrams created for Poet and Jagger, daughters of Target’s Mommy Ambassador Soleil Moon Frye, and an interview with #KidsGotStyle stylist Amy Chin and photographer Scott Darling. Check it out here.

To help you show Target that your #kidsgotstyle we are giving ONE LUCKY WINNER a $50 Target giftcard.
