It’s time to start thinking about holiday outfits! I love browsing the shops for the outfit that will make it on our holiday cards, and choosing a few for each family event we attend or host. As much as I love choosing outfits for my girls, they have their own ideas about what they want to wear when they get all dressed up. So, since we needed to take holiday pictures, a trip to OshKosh was in order!
Admittedly, we have never been to an OshKosh store. We typically shop at OshKosh online because we didn’t have a location near us until recently. Our OshKosh store was coupled with a Carter’s store. The store layout, although small, was very neat and it was easy to find what we were looking for – holiday dresses. My girls both laid eyes on the Shimmer Stripe Party dress and knew they had to have it. The only problem was that it only came in my youngest daughter’s size, so to avoid a melt down I promised them both I would order the dress online so they received it at the same time.
As our shopping trip was quickly coming to an end because my oldest was not happy, I took note of the awesome prices they had on play wear. $6-$8 pieces means you can create a whole wardrobe on a budget, and knowing how well Osh Kosh clothes hold up, I know that my youngest daughter will get her big sister’s hand me downs and they will still look great! This is my favorite thing about OshKosh- they have offer value and quality in all their outfits!
Walking out of OshKosh was a great teaching moment for my daughter. While she was having a meltdown over them not having her size, I thought it would be great to teach her about those who may not have pretty clothing this holiday season. I don’t think she would have quite understood OshKosh’s #GiveHappy initiative, so I explained to her why it was necessary to spread kindness to those who may need a pick me up; the holiday season is the perfect time for that. We’ve decided to gather a few boxes of pantry and baby items to donate to our local women’s shelter to brighten their day. How will you #GiveHappy this holiday season?
You can check out all that OshKosh has to offer this holiday season and beyond by visiting OshKosh on the web and in stores (check out their store locator) as well as following them on social media on Facebook and Twitter.
