*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.
As strange as it may sound, I rarely take Madelyn with me when I buy her clothes. I’d rather buy a bunch of clothes and bring them home for her to say yay or nay to and try on at home, than deal with the potential whining about trying clothes on and me taking too long. On that note, last week I was brave and took Madelyn to the OshKosh B’gosh store. I expected whining. I expected chaos. And I got it. Not because she didn’t want to try clothes on. It was the opposite this time. She wanted to try on everything! We were at the store for 2 hours.
When we arrived at OshKosh B’gosh, two employees greeted us. One asked what we were shopping for and one told us about the amazing doorbuster items. My jaw dropped when she told me that the fleece pullovers were just $9! If I wasn’t there to buy outfits for school, I would have grabbed a dozen pairs of fleece pants and pullovers and been done with our shopping trip.
After perusing the doorbuster items we made it to the racks of clothes. Madelyn put three outfits together in a matter of minutes.. then five.. and more and more. Oh my gosh they were cute outfits too! I quickly got down on my knees and explained to her that while I would love for her to have a velvet dress with an adorable turtleneck to pair with it and tights, my goal with this shopping trip was to buy her a couple of outfits she could wear to school. While I was talking to her, I saw her eyes focus on something behind me. Boots.. “the most super-adorabalist boots EVER” she said…sort of like that new word she came up with earlier this week; fancasual. She’s on a roll with the interesting new words. That was the end of that conversation.
While she tried on the boots, I found jeggings. I have bought Madelyn several pairs of jeggings in the last year and she’s worn holes in all of them. When I picked up a pair of OshKosh’s jeggings, I realized that the jeggings I had bought were not nearly as good quality as OshKosh B’gosh’s. Their jeggings are thick and seem very durable.
Madelyn paired a knit cardigan from OshKosh B’gosh that she had with one of the outfits we bought, creating this adorable outfit. This is my favorite of the outfits she picked. It is practical for school and it will also make a cute holiday outfit.
Oh, and aren’t the boots adorable? The boots are regularly $50. I initially told Madelyn she couldn’t get the boots but when she put the effort into putting them on with every outfit she tried on and I saw just how freakin’ cute they are with everything.. I caved. I was sure the boots were going to put us well over our $100 limit.. but seeing as how our entire purchase was just $96, they didn’t!
I could not believe how many items we were able to get with our $100 gift card at OshKosh B’gosh! Seriously. I took a photo to show you just what we bought with $96!
This is what we got for $96!
- 2 pairs of jeggings
- 1 fleece pullover
- 1 long sleeve embellished tee
- 1 long sleeve tunic
- 2 pairs of jersey yoga pants
- 1 pair of microfleece pants
- 1 pair of sherpa ankle boots
- 1 pack of cotton tees
- 1 star belt
- 1 bracelet
Pretty great, right?

It was tempting to use my gift card to buy holiday clothes for Madelyn but she can make any outfit look festive with accessories…she’s better at that than I am.. so we refrained on buying ‘holiday specific’ items and went with fun, functional, and comfortable everyday clothes. We’ll be back soon (we got a coupon with our purchase) so maybe we’ll stock up on holiday clothes next time! Here are a few cute pieces that would be great for holiday outfits.
