Looking for an easy way to browse all of your favorite stores from a seamless mobile app, look no further than Octer. I'm sharing my experience on Something Gold, Something Blue fashion blog today.

Hey y’all! How is it August already? It’s hard to believe that Back to School season is upon us. And, although, I won’t be heading back to school in the next few weeks, I love to find any excuse to expand and refresh my wardrobe. I remember back to school shopping could get extremely stressful, especially in college, because I needed to make sure I had all of the school supplies, adorable clothes and living essentials to pack into my car with me. And running around from store to store would exhaust me (heck, even now I stick to online shopping because it can be sent directly to me).

I have found an even better solution to online shopping; I was recently introduced to Octer which is a one-stop-shop mobile app (and online store) to help us busy ladies (and gentleman) find some of the best clothes, shoes, accessories and home goods from your favorite retailers, including Nordstrom, JCPenney, Dorothy Perkins, T.J. Maxx, Bloomingdale’s, Shopbop and so many more (over 200 stores to be exact)!

One of my favorite features of the app is the ability to make a wishlist of all of the items that I would like from multiple retailers and then be able to pick and choose my super-must-haves from my favorites list (not only will this be great for finding those knock out pieces but it will probably end up saving me from spending or allow me to buy more)!  And this wishlist is a perfect way to share your Christmas or Birthday favorites with friends and family who are always asking for what you would like.

Once I have found the items I want to purchase, I can go directly to the product’s website and snag that item. Voila – so easy and such a great way to find the items that I truly love. I have been spending way too much time on this app saving my favorites and I have found so many items to purchase, including these jeans from one of my favorite retailers, Nordstrom (and they were even a part of the Anniversary sale – double bonus). Paired with this comfy orange top (which is fantastic for the Houston heat because it is a fall color, but sleeveless) and lots of tassel accessories, I think this would make a fantastic first day of school outfit. If you were to go back to school, what would you (or will you) be wearing?  I would love to hear about your outfits below!
