Take a moment, moms - think back to when you first saw a positive result on a pregnancy test. Tell me that your heart didn't skip a beat at just the idea of getting to dress a tiny little person in whatever fashions you selected for them! Yes, most of us are primarily excited about the miracle of a new life growing in our bellies - but the adorable clothes available for parents to choose these days are a definite perk!
My kids have always seemed to have more clothes than they really need, but now that they are getting older, the stash I bought when they were babies is starting to run out. When you have a newborn, you don't usually think about buying size 5 boy's clothing! So when I was given the opportunity to visit my local OshKosh B'gosh store to check out their winter clothing selection, I was all over it. I had so much fun shopping at OshKosh B'gosh last year, there was no way I could say no!
OshKosh B'gosh is known for their adorable overalls and clothing in simple, classic designs - something that I love. My kids do have some clothing that features their favorite characters, but I am really migrating to the simpler pieces these days. You can't beat a classic!

The store was packed with clothing for the upcoming winter season and I feel that I was able to purchase a lot of the clothes my kids needed for winter all in one stop! I even managed to stock up on socks and hair accessories without breaking the budget!
My trip was made even more exciting by the 25% off coupon (you can print a copy here). I love the chance to snag a good deal - the day I visited OshKosh B'gosh, practically everything in the store was already on sale and I was able to use the coupon in addition to the sales!

OshKosh B'gosh remains one of my go-to destinations for classy designs for my kids. I love that their designers are not striving to make kids grow up too fast - simple, comfy styles are really what works for little ones and they're experts at that.
I may have had a little too much fun updating Lincoln and Addie's wardrobes on this shopping trip! I was excited to add some classic shirts in white and gray for Addie, plus coordinating navy accents.
I'm loving stripes right now, so these shirts (one on clearance for a super great price) were a no-brainer! Addie's favorite color is pink, so I know these will see a lot of wear this winter!
For Lincoln, I picked out this great half-zip sweater. He doesn't have many dressy outfits because as a three-year-old boy, it seems unlikely that he will be motivated to look nice and keep his clothing in one piece. But this sweater is definitely durable enough to hold up to his rough antics.
I've noticed that all of the OshKosh pieces in our clothing collection have great durability. The items that my kids have outgrown were not placed in consignment or garage sale piles, but were added to my bins of smaller sized clothing in case we have more babies someday. I much prefer buying clothing that I know will last through multiple kids!
I spied a great collection of holiday outfits and adorable pajamas when I was shopping at OshKosh B'Gosh earlier this month. Pajamas are my weakness...seriously, I just love them. Lincoln thinks the fire chief pj's are pretty cool, and Addie has been obsessed with owls since her first birthday party, so they were a perfect choice!
OshKosh B'gosh wants shoppers to #GiveHappy this holiday season and I'm doing that just by celebrating the little moments with my kids! This is something I try to do anyway, but it's great to have a reminder. Little things like giving hugs or kisses, reading extra stories at bedtime, or letting little hands help when I'm cooking set a happier tone in our home - and what mom doesn't want that?
How do you #GiveHappy? I'm making a list of small things we can do to brighten someone else's day! I can't wait to help my kids learn that it's better to give than receive this holiday season.
