#Throwback(toschool)Thursday

It may have been a while since we here at zulily have had the joyful experience of getting on our brand new outfit for the first day back to school, but that doesn’t mean we can’t relish in it just the same. In the spirit of all the kiddos getting ready to go back to school, we’re celebrating #TBT with our own version, #ThrowbackToSchool. Join in by posting your throwback photos from your first day back to school and tag #ThrowbackToSchool and #zulily. We’ll share our favorites!

Back to School Shots #yayfirstday

 

We all know how important that first day of school is to your kids. They’ve styled their favorite outfit, decorated their binders in preparation, and have probably put in a special request for a first day dessert in their lunch. 

But, before they hop on that school bus, you’ve got to snap the perfect first day picture to add to your collection. Share these fabulous first-day photos on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #yayfirstday and #zulily. Every few weeks we will select a few of our favorites as “star student of the day” and share these photos on Facebook and Instagram. We will also choose a photo every week to include in our Facebook cover photo!

3. A Stroller Fit for Flying

Today, zulily will be the first to launch the Protect Infant Car Seat component of the travel system.

Trend Alert: Tousled Hair

We are loving the tousled hair trend for fall that transitions perfectly from workweek to weekend with an effortless yet fashionable look. To get these tresses, here is what you’ll need:

1. Curl cream. We like cream because it conditions as it shapes your curls.

2. A Hair Dryer with anti-frizz technology and a diffuser attachment.

3. A curling iron to give shape to your natural wave.

4. Lastly, apply some styling paste to control flyways and finish the look.
