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!


On Holiday Wonder + A Fun Video!

This post is sponsored by OshKosh B’Gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

December always ushers in a sense of palpable magic. Storage bins are brought up from the basement; and together we sift through our treasure trove of memories to decorate, storytell, and be present in the inherent goodness of the season. Holiday music bellows in our home, familiar stories are read over and over again, and little believers shine as bright as the twinkle lights adorning our city.

The beauty of Christmastime with children gently nudges me to not rush through it all.

I think there is magic wrapped up in a new pair of bright red jammies or special holiday outfit for those festive events.  I certainly get excited about kids holiday style –  as I did in my own childhood. From bow-ties to overalls – I love everything from our recent OshKosh B’Gosh order as do the children!


We even marked this moment in time with a video starring our littles who believe.

I’m so glad that we have that “reindeer baby” moment on film – and I think that we need to make these sort of recordings a regular tradition.

Join us in capturing your kids holiday spirit in stylish kids fashion from OshKosh.  Don’t forget to use our great coupon; find a store near you and check out OshKosh’s fantastic Gift Guide!

Wishing you peace and joy, and the love of family this time of year.

Forever Summer (OshKosh B’gosh Giveaway)

Today marks our first full week of summer vacation.  We’ll be greeting the mornings at a slower pace and enjoying the fluidity of unscheduled days and spontaneous adventures.  I’m looking forward to fistfuls of tiny wilted flowers and piles of paintings – and the light in little faces as they imagine and explore.  Motherhood continually proves that the simple things build upon the most meaningful memories of early childhood.  And I hope that my kids will recall the unabashed fun of being wild and free and together during our forever summers.

We were invited by OshKosh B’gosh to capture a 75 second glimpse of our forever summer and are excited to be featured on their Forever Summer homepage this week.  OshKosh was a staple in my own 80’s childhood and they continue to stay true to their origins of creating comfortable, thoughtful designs that celebrate childhood by allowing kids to be kids.


Like OshKosh, we believe in the importance of play – and my online order proved to be well-suited for my imaginative, active children (and their mama who happens to love mini-style). The graphic tees were practically made for my boy (he is such a dude and he loves pizza!)  and I’ve received a bunch of questions about the embroidered dress that Lucia selected. It’s details like the soft cotton-contrasting waist material on my son’s shorts and the durability and sweet accents on the swimsuits that make B’gosh garments special.

In addition to affordable summer essentials (find a store near you here!), the OshKosh’s Forever Summer Homepage provides weekly tips, crafts and recipes for moms like me aiming to make the most of our summer staycations.

We were thrilled that OshKosh introduced us to the incredible GoPro Hero3 and several supporting accessories to capture video from the children’s unique perspective.  Although GoPro is well known among extreme athletes – I’d argue that it should hold a prime spot on baby registries.  I mounted the camera to the kids’ helmets and strapped it to their chest to record continual motion from an interesting birds-eye view.  I also clamped it to vehicles and playground equipment with one of my favorite accessories – the jaws flex clamp.  Our video reflects a glimpse of our summertime in the city and the wonder inherent in being a kid.  From Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn and Manhattan playgrounds, to the reconstructed Rockaway boardwalk in Queens – there is great fun to be found in our own magnificent city.
