Family Travel Packing Tips + Adorable Spring Kids’ Style

This post is sponsored by OshKosh B’Gosh. Opinions, as always, are my own.

We’re going to look past that brush of snow arriving on the first evening of Spring. Eager to escape those winter doldrums, we’re only looking towards all that is warm and bright.

It’s no secret that I enjoy swapping those cumbersome winter layers for new stylish spring clothes for the kids.  And I’m holding tight to that bit of a say that I still have in my children’s fashion choices.  Easter marks our third consecutive weekend of traveling, and it’s so much fun to coordinate special vacation kids’ styles. While I don’t think it will ever be a breeze to take-off perfectly packed and organized, we have a few packing tips to take along for those upcoming spring break vacations.

  • Creatively Coordinate: We love to revisit family memories through photographs – and vacations are full of prime opportunities to snap away. I like to select a great color palette to have the kids clothing mesh without being too matchy-mathcy.


  • Dress up with Accessories: Would I love to stuff my son up in his fancy-pants suit while traveling? YES! Does he want to wear this sort of restrictive clothing? NO! Believe in the power of adorable accessories like ultra cool suspenders to elevate that simple dark jeans and solid T-shirt look. I love the way accessories pull this clean style into a casually dressy and super fun outfit.
  • Don’t Forgo the Sun Protection! Along with sunscreen, we believe in starting them young on habitual hats and sunglasses wearing in the warmer months.  In addition to providing protection from the sun, they also add instant style!
  • Roll the Clothes: I can often fit my clothing and both children’s clothing into one (yes one!) carry-on suitcase for weekend getaways. The secret? Neatly rolling each article of clothing maximizes space and generally keeps things wrinkle free.

Like so many previous years, we turned to OshKosh B’Gosh, a tried and trusted brand for our big seasonal order.  It’s been a while since we’ve shared images of the kids, and I absolutely can not wrap my head around the little people they are rapidly growing into!


Super happy, silly, carefree and comfortable – the definition of what being a kid is all about.

I’m so grateful for the everyday joy these two Easter bunnies make me see.


Can you tell that I adore this sweet OshKosh sibling look?  And I’m ahead of the game this year by already stocked up on swimsuits, flip-flops, undies and spring essentials.  With incredible savings on must-have styles – I’m always surprised at the whopping value packed into my OshKosh orders.
