The 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 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!
Holiday dressing just got easier! Get into the Christmas spirit and visit OshKosh B’gosh and #GIVEHAPPY!
