I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Happy August, friends! I cannot believe the kids head back to school in less than a month. Seriously, I can’t wrap my brain around it.
This summer felt particularly short, since our kids were in school until late June, thanks to the horrific winter (and many snow days turned makeup days) here in New England. How is it almost time to put them back on thos school buses again?
Of course, with every new season comes the dreaded What can I resurrect from last year? closet search. Thankfully, it appears we are in okay shape for Buddy, since he’ll wear shorts until November and, on top of it all, only wants to wear athletic gear (seriously, he refuses anything with a button or zipper).
But just like in the spring, Mimi jumped sizes and is now in a kids size 6 for the most part (especially in pants…she’s very particular about how things fit. Trust me.)
So a trip to OshKosh B’gosh was in order, and lucky for us, literally everything was on sale …
… and yielded all this loot for my picky girl for less than $100!
I love how OshKosh clothes are durable, practical yet fun and fashionable. And the style themes this season are right on trend with what we’re seeing with us “grown ups.” Lots of denim — from jeans to tops — and activewear and (my personal favorite) black and white.
The best part? Everything can be mixed and matched, which allows us to get even more mileage out of her wardrobe.
But, of course, we did have our favorites 😉
Mimi was infatuated with this shirt, even before I told her what it said.
And I love this denim tunic….so perfect with any color leggings! The tunic is a little dressier than a cotton long-sleeved tee, yet the denim still makes it casual and appropriate for pre-K — especially for a little girl obsessed with wearing anything resembling a dress to school.
Speaking of denim, this year OshKosh B’gosh is launching a fantastic program called the #BgoshJeanius Campaign.
In partnership with K.I.D.S./ Fashion Delivers, Inc., and DonorsChoose.org, OshKosh will give customers the opportunity to donate a new pair of jeans or make a cash donation to a students in need this school year.
Here are the details:
- All denim donated between now and September 16 will be delivered to local children in need through K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, while cash donations will be dispersed to local DonorsChoose.org.
- The Carters Charitable foundation will match all cash donations up to $50,000 and all denim donations with a new item of clothing.
So whether you’d prefer to donate a new pair of blues, or would rather make a cash donation at the register, consider taking advantage of this opportunity to make sure all kids have what they need for school, from blue jeans to books! Click here for more info.
