Stylish Looks From OshKosh B’gosh {Giveaway}

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. #BacktoBgosh

The kids are back in school and today is the unofficial end of the summer season which means we all know the cooler Autumn air will be here soon. With it comes the start of football, pumpkin spice lattes and apple picking, along with the need for new back to school clothes. It will soon be time to put away the shorts and sandals in favor of sweaters and boots.

Knowing this, I recently went shopping at OshKosh B’gosh for some stylish fall looks. It’s one of my favorite stores for kid’s fashion and I’ve been a customer ever since my boys were babies crawling around in their little overalls. Denim has been a staple in my kid’s wardrobe for years because it’s comfortable, stylish and versatile. OshKosh B’gosh is one of the few places I buy jeans for the kids because their pants have adjustable waistbands for my kids’ tiny waists.

Along with a pair of dark wash denim jeans I bought a light jacket and a number of long sleeve tops. I love that denim jeans go with just about anything- from t-shirts and athletic shoes to dress shirts and boots. All of the shirts I bought looked great with the jeans and I was able to create a number of outfits with the same pair of dark wash jeans.

I noticed that this year I was drawn to a lot of blue and orange combos when I was shopping. Perhaps because of my love for our Chicago football team? Or maybe it’s because these colors will brighten up any dreary fall day, especially when paired with a smile!

Gurnee Mills: Great Deals & Fun For Everyone {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: I received a gift card from Gurnee Mills but all thoughts are my own.)

A couple weekends ago the boys and I headed to Gurnee Mills Outlet Mall to do some shopping. What I love about Gurnee Mills is the great selection of stores with many of them having deep discounts on items. Being on a budget I really appreciate being able to keep my kids in the same brands they typically wear while being able to save money.

Shopping with kids is an experience as we always tend to get sidetracked. The first store we went into was The Disney Store and my little Toy Story lover found the Lotso bear that he’d been hunting for. I liked the price which was over $30 less than the only other Lotso bear I had previously found at a toy store. He also found a bunch of other little friends and with the buy 3 or more discounts (and armed with a gift card) we went a little crazy…. 

Lucas had the biggest smile on his face and kept thanking me and hugging his stuffed friends. Jacob on the other hand kept asking where the LEGO store was. I promised him we’d stop there after mommy got some clothes for them.

I shopped at Carter’s, Gymboree Outlet, OshKosh B’gosh and The Children’s Place Outlet which are all the stores I typically go to for kid’s clothes. I found so many great deals it was unbelievable. I typically find good prices at outlets but there seemed to be even more sales than normal. Here are a few of my favorite finds:

Apparently yellow and gray are popular colors this season :) I swear I bought plenty of colorful items including a few matching shirts for the boys. Don’t they look handsome in these blue shirts?

When we were done looking at clothes, I fulfilled my promise of stopping at the LEGO store so Jacob could pick something out. Both boys made a few custom minifigures which they loved doing. Jacob has really been into LEGOs recently and has told me that when he is an adult he is going to collect all the minifigures. They each picked out an Advent Calendar also which is something I had my eye on last year but never bought. When we went to check out we got four free gifts. Four! Each boy got a LEGO magazine and then we got a little LEGO Chima set and a LEGO Astronaut set.

After a busy afternoon of shopping we enjoyed an early dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. I’ve been to three locations and I have to say that their Gurnee Mills location was the nicest one. It wasn’t too busy which was nice. Lucas loved the kid’s macaroni and cheese which he said was “Heaven”. I’d never heard him describe food like that so you know it was good :)

As we were walking around we discovered there was a lot more to do at Gurnee Mills than shop. There was a movie theater, an arcade, golfing and even an ice skating rink! Though I’d been to Gurnee Mills before I’d never noticed all the fun things there were to do there.

After a long afternoon carrying numerous bags I was exhausted (note to moms everywhere: pull out the stroller…trust me….). We headed home and I listened to the boys talk about how much fun they had. Lucas played with Lotso and the Peas in a Pod and Jacob looked through his LEGO magazine and talked about minifigures. Before they drifted off to sleep Jacob asked me when we’d be going back again. Considering we’d spent most of our time in clothing stores I’d consider this a win :)

Looks For Boys From OshKosh B’gosh {Coupon}

(Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for OshKosh B’gosh. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.)

Having multiple kids can be tough on the budget so as a mom of 2 I am often on the hunt for quality clothes that I can pass down from one child to the other. It really works out well for us because both boys were born in June so what Jacob wears one year, Lucas can wear the next.

I was excited to go shopping at OshKosh B’gosh this week to find some holiday clothes for the boys. I walked into the store and discovered a huge sale which made me happy because I could get more for my money. I find that when stores like OshKosh B’gosh have sales you get fabulous clothes for less than you’d pay at the big box stores or department stores. I ended up getting some clothes for Christmas and a variety of other clothes for school.

Here is what I was able to get for $150: 2 thick knit sweaters, 1 zip-down hooded sweatshirt, 1 hooded sweatshirt, 1 fleece jacket, 2 dress shirts, 4 long sleeve shirts, 1 t-shirt and 4 pairs of winter gloves. A couple of the shirts I got doubles of so the boys could wear them for holiday pictures (I will put them in matching clothes as long as they let me). If I had more time at the store I would have checked out the clearance racks more because they had t-shirts for $4 and shorts as well. The boys were getting antsy so I was trying to hurry.
