#GIVEHAPPY With OshKosh B’gosh + 25% Off Coupon

OshKosh B'goshThe holidays are quickly approaching.  What does that mean for me?  It means chaos.   Thankfully, that chaos culminates in fun times and happiness.  The process of getting to the joy of the holidays can be daunting but it’s worth it every year.   I don’t go through chaos just because it’s a holiday and I feel like I have to.   I do it because it’s one time of the year that I know when certain things are happening and can have some kind of plan and strategy.  Otherwise it’s life as usual which is – buy clothes as the kids need them, – go to the grocery as we need groceries, – work, – clean the house when we can, etc.   You get it.

This time of year is when I make plans. I plan what the kids, or my 8-year-old daughter at least, is going to wear to family get together’s and school parties.  I make an official grocery list with things like brown sugar, chocolate chips, and turkey, on it.   Organization is what I appreciate about the holidays, besides spending time with my family.

What Madelyn appreciates about the holidays might be a little different but OshKosh B’gosh’s #GIVEHAPPY campaign has helped us appreciate the little things more, this holiday season.  You can read more on that below.


Madelyn has been growing faster than a weed this year.  It’s like her body is mocking me.  I bought her a new wardrobe in the Spring and she’s already outgrown most of the pieces.  OshKosh B’gosh is one of my favorite places to shop for clothes for her.  The classic styles, bright colors, and comfortable materials are the perfect combination for her.. and I!   I love that almost every piece at OshKosh B’gosh can be machine washed and dried but they are super comfortable and wonderfully fitting pieces that you’d think were only available at high-end stores where a sweater for a child runs upward of $100.  The cute little ensemble Madelyn’s wearing in the photo above cost less than $25!  She’s wearing coral Stretch Twill pants paired with their Ski Lodge sweater which reminds me of the fox from the annoyingly famous song kids love.. you know the one. 😉

Her second favorite piece, after the fox sweater, is this red striped french terry pullover.  Oh my gosh.. if they made one for adults I’d have grabbed one for myself.  Too cute.. and comfy!  As you can see, Madelyn prefers casual clothes.  OshKosh B’gosh is our go-to store for casual, cute, comfy items that aren’t too expensive but have that classic look.. not so ‘grown-up girl’ as many of the department stores have these days.  OshKosh B’gosh is great at keeping up with current trends without the short-cut, odd-fabrics that parents tend to find in other kids clothing stores.  I appreciate that they offer cute, stylish clothes that keep Madelyn covered and let her personality shine!

OshKosh B'gosh Store

OshKosh B’gosh is known for their classic denim and World’s Best Overalls but they’ve also got a whole assortment of fashionable looks for holidays and year-round that your kids are sure to love!  OshKosh offers quality products for boys and girls size 0-12 at an outstanding value.

OshKosh B’gosh’s #GIVEHAPPY campaign is helping shoppers remember the importance of celebrating the holidays and delighting in the simple joys of childhood.

OshKosh B’gosh wants shoppers to #GIVEHAPPY this holiday season and I’m doing that just by celebrating the little moments with my kids like encouraging Madelyn to hang from trees, skip stones in the stream near our house, read books about Thanksgiving and Christmas together and decorate the house together.  Some ways you can #GIVEHAPPY this season are by giving praise, giving hugs, giving time, and giving laughs!

4th of July Kids Clothes and Accessories at The Children’s Place

It’s a rainy day here in Atlanta and tomorrow is July 4th.   I will hardly let the rain stop us from being patriotic and proud!

One way that we show off our USA pride in the is to wear festive clothes and accessories.  As my daughter got old enough to dress herself, I quickly learned that a 4th of July outfit made up of a red shirt, blue shorts, and white sandals just won’t do.

What was I thinking!?

One children’s clothing store that I know will have festive, 4th of July, clothes and accessories is The Children’s Place.

Here are a few festive, 4th of July pieces, that Madelyn loves and will get when we go shopping this afternoon, if she has her way, and if this rain slows down.  🙂

Tea Collection Review and $150 Giveaway – There’s Fun in Every Playful Piece!

Tea Collection Bali Spring CollectionWe love Tea Collection.  My daughter has several pieces from Tea Collection that she has been wearing for about a year and two things that I as a mom appreciate about Tea Collection clothing is how well the pieces hold up and they are machine washable. My daughter loves the “colorfulness” (that’s her word not mine) and she chooses her Tea Collection dresses over many because they are very soft and comfortable.

She recently received a few pieces from Tea Collection’s Bali collection.

Bali is Tea Collection’s inspiration this Spring season due to its rich immersion in the arts.  From small mountain villages to surf worthy coasts, inspiration abounds in Bali.   Surrounded by natural beauty, vibrant people, and intoxicating music, the family became engrossed in Bali’s rich culture and history resulting in their beautiful Bali collection.

Tea Collection - Bali Collection
#1 Artisan Lotus Dress, #2 Jaya Peak Playdress, #3 Flutter Fun Romper, #4 Moon Orchid Trapeze Dress
Tea Collection brought all the creativity that they had amassed and poured it into their new, vibrant collection of children’s clothing, the Bali Collection.
Starting with the Moon Orchid Trapeze Dress (#4 in photo above). Its watercolor design of one of Bali’s most beautiful flowers stands out against its crisp backdrop. Made of 100% cotton, this dress playfully swings and twirls which makes my daughter very happy.  This is a great stand-alone piece, but it also looks adorable with a pair of leggings like Tea Collection’s peacock pedal pushers.

Tea Collection - Moon Orchid Trapeze Dress
We love the vibrant colors and dual print design of the Artisan Lotus Dress (#1 in photo above).  Covered in Bali’s ikat print with a band of lotus blossoms around the waist, this modern twist on a traditional print is sure to be a crowd pleaser. If your daughter is like my five year old, this fun dress will be one your little darling cannot wait to wear.
A dress from another collection holding true to the Bali theme is the Jaya Peak Playdress (#2 in photo above).  Mountain peaks and butterflies border this whimsical dress, named after the tallest mountain in Indonesia.
PAZITOS FLOWER BUNCH SANDALSDoes your daughter need shoes to complete all the charming looks in this collection? Check out Tea Collection’s adorable Pazitos Flower Bunch Sandals in Kiwi for an extra pop of color. These comfy leather sandals are perfect whether your little one is going dressy or casual.  As you can see in the photographs above, my daughter wears these with everything!
Tea Collection, has a distinctive outlook on fashion. By using destinations as inspiration, Tea Collection brings playfulness to their children’s clothes. They have styles and designs to fit the personality of little girls and little boys everywhere.
From Japan and Korea to West Africa and Norway, Catalonia, Mexico, Hungary, and Brazil Tea Collection has traveled the globe to share and create. Their brightly colored clothes are machine washable making them as easy to care for as they are to wear.

I Need to Restock my Four Year Old’s Closet.. Again!

My 4 year has sprouted so much in the past six months that she went from being able to wear a size 3T & 4T comfortably, to wearing 5T clothes.  The problem is, I stocked her up on 4T’s thinking that she’s hang in there for a while, but nope.. she’s moving on up!  I don’t like to wear tight clothing so I empathize and don’t have a problem restocking her closet, but sheesh, it seems like I just stocked her up with a ton of 4T’s and now I need to fill her closet with 5T clothes or she’ll look a little too skimpy for my taste.   Short pants, belly shirts.. not cute on a 4 year old.

Don’t get me wrong.. I am so glad she’s going through a growth spurt as she’s always been a little shorter than most of the kids in her class.   She could use some catching up.  I’m only 5″1′ though, so it looks like she might have gotten her height gene from me.  Poor thing. 🙁 Could be worse though right?

I guess I’ll be browsing some of my favorite children’s clothing stores, TheChildrensPlace.com, OldNavy.com, and Gap Kids.

Update: I just did some preliminary window (online) shopping at a few of my favorite children’s clothing stores and look at these adorable outfits I put together!  I know, most of the pieces plain jane, but I like pieces that will go with a lot.
