Back-to-School Super Cool: Tween Edition

This post is sponsored by OshKosh B’gosh. All opinions are my own.


How do you get a tween who lives for bathing suits and cover-ups to swap her super casual beach-all-day-every-day vibe for clothing that’s suitable for a new school year? Stir up excitement for the impending back-to-school season by letting her pick out some fresh new stylish outfits all on her own  – and fully trust her free-spirited fashion sense with a brand that’s age-appropriate and fun. All at prices that won’t break this mom’s kid fashion budget!

Go For Gender Neutral: Our strong girl often pulls T-shirts and more from her brother’s collection. She fell in love with OshKosh B’gosh’s BE YOU tees – featuring positive, laid-back messages, and hand-drawn doodles that happen to speak to both of our kiddos. Hello, sibling-shared tees designed for both girls and boys with the ability to match with everything.


Say Yes to Accessories:  A fun bracelet collection, sun glasses, and a pair of glitter-drenched shoes allow for self-expression.  Paired with her favorite new “artist” or “no bad days” tee – and she’s ready to go!


Mix and Match with Confidence:  Versatile clothing options make everyone’s school mornings easier.  Our sporty girl gravitates towards activewear.  The bright, cheerful and positive options from OshKosh will carry her through the seasons along with her favorite B’gosh denim and logo sweatshirts.

Style Stars: Back-to-School Fashion That Your Kids Will Love

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh.  Opinions, as always, are my own.


We may still be swimming in summer – but I know that some kids are currently meeting their first-day-of-school.  I’ve learned that starting back-to-school shopping well in advance is always a good thing, especially with children who crave fun and independence when it comes to fashion and style.


Some days call for cat-ear barrettes.

And a graphic tee with your favorite jeans (on repeat). Don’t forget to add shades for recess to compliment that bright future.


Fierce sharks are cool when you’re six!


A fighting ninja? Even cooler!


For our big girl, it’s all about the accessories.  And a favorite first-day-of-school dress that will later be paired with soft leggings and a denim jacket as the crisp fall air rolls in for good.


As in every season, this mom turned to OshKosh B’gosh to tackle back-to-school shopping – with versatile kids’ clothes that are adorable, durable and always age-appropriate.  Can I tell you how excited I am that the boy is newly obsessed with OshKosh jeans?!  This perfect pant for all seasons matches with every possible combination. For now, he’ll rock his jeans with interchanging cool tees (and collared shirts for a more polished look) – and then add layers when needed. While my daughter will continue to personalize her style with accessories, I’ll be dreaming of that darling boho dress in my size!


I always feel better sending the kiddos off to a new school year in comfortable clothing that makes them feel good about themselves.  I can depend on OskKosh for this – with affordable prices, on-trend styles – and significant savings in every order.  Find an OshKosh B’gosh store near you and grab the below coupon to save 25% both in store and online.


I’m so excited to see my little loves thrive in this school year to come.


Wishing your babies (big and small) all the best as they head to their new classrooms, as well.  Cheers to new beginnings!


Back To School Styles with OshKosh B’gosh

On my first trip back to my childhood home, as a new mother, my own mama brought down a carefully packaged box from the attack.  It was a vintage treasure trove full of lovely handmade dresses, special favorites strewn with memories and a few retro OshKosh B’gosh pieces that my future toddlers would someday wear.

When I was invited to create a video with OshKosh over the summer, I was thrilled to work with a brand so nostalgic of my own childhood. Rooted in the belief that clothing should allow kids to have fun being kids – I was eager to recently learn about their timeless yet trend-relevant back-to-school styles.

I couldn’t resist the iconic overall look on my kiddos who haven’t donned overalls since toddlerhood. I adore the camo-theme on both boys and girls and the fitted, minimally rhinestone encrusted denim on my daughter.  It was simple to create head-to-toe looks and I even found a sibling-sharable boy’s denim jacket.

I believe in collaborating with brands who give back and OshKosh B’Gosh Jeanius Campaign has partnered with KIDS and to help local, kids, teacher and schools thrive. From now until September 17th, donate a new pair of jeans or make a cash donation and OshKosh will match all denim donations with another item of clothing.  In addition, all cash donations will be matched, up to $50K.

Since the majority of our kid’s items are passed on to family, it seamed fitting to share OshKosh kids style advice with my sister-in-law, a mama of two-boys who happens to share a love of kid’s fashion (and great deals!).  Check out the OshKosh top 10 trends for Back-to-School and grab the below 25% coupon for extra savings!
